"Bull Moose" Becomes New Lieberman Spokesguy
The Swamp reports that "independent Democrat" Sen. Joe Lieberman (my old boss) has a new chief spokesguy: Marshall Wittman (right). Wittman replaces Casey Aden-Wansbury, who departed in September for the Children's Defense Fund.
Wittman -- one of the best-known quotemeisters in town -- has had an interesting political evolution, having once worked for the Christian Coalition and Sen. John McCain before joining the Democratic Leadership Council in 2004. There, he has run the Bull Moose Blog and has been a sideline booster of Liebs during his re-election campaign this year. On Friday he posted a coy sign-off at his blog, hinting, "The Moose will surely re-emerge again. When and where will the Moose be spotted?" Now we know.
