Liebermanism Spreads

First there was Joe. Now, there is Joel. One a moderate Democrat defeated in the primary by a less-moderate Democrat, the other a moderate Republican defeated in the primary by a less-moderate Republican.

Incumbents defeated in their party's primaries are not taking their defeats lying down any more, and I say "Bravo!" Give the people more options, and make the "grassroots" movements enjoy some success on both ends of the spectrum.

And if centrism, moderation, and a willingness to not condemn the other guy as "evil", "unpatriotic", "Hitleresque", or a "moonbat" because he or she happens to disagree with your viewpoint were to make a revival... well, that would be just hunkydory with me.
