A New Party

Democratic Sen. Joe Lieberman, warily (or perhaps nervously) watching his primary challenger advance in the polls, will soon need to decide whether to start collecting signatures for a possible independent bid this November.

Run as an independent? Not a good strategy, since the term
"Independent Candidate" automatically means no more than ten or fifteen percent of the national vote.

He needs to form a new party, but since all American elections are bought with good old cash on the barrelhead, it needs a name that would instantly garner the support of money handlers worldwide.

What to call it?

Something catchy, something that immediately identifies his priorities and allegiances to millions of potential like-minded supporters, something that would have a ready-made, built-in enforcement arm.

How about the Mossad Party?
