Who Said Rovian Tactics?

It looks as if Republicans are getting more involved in the Lieberman campaign than even the most cynical Daily Kos readers believed.

In an ironic twist, Karl Rove, the chief political adviser to George Bush reportedly contacted a senior Lieberman staffer to offer help for the upcoming Independent campaign. He delivered this message:

"The boss wants to help. Whatever we can do, we will do." More at ABC.

Now obviously it isn't in the interests of the Lieberman people, who yesterday accused Lamont's team of "Rovian" campaign tactics when the Lieberman website, Joe2006, mysteriously shut down monday afternoon. However, steering key Republican finances, and possibly persuading the Republican candidate, Alan Schlesinger, to drop out of the race could all be accomplished without openly acknowledging that Lieberman co-operated with Republicans.

Meanwhile, Democrats have reacted to Lamont's victory with support.
