Box Her
Since I've been in a letter writing mood, here's another sent today:
Dear Senator Boxer,

I have been a voericious supporter of yours. You have taken some tough stands for some tough issues. For that I thank you.

I am writing to encourage you to not actively support Senator Joe Lieberman. Senator Lieberman has been a strong supporter on the side of many conservative positions (not just the Iraq war) and has demonstrated contempt for the Democratic party with his recent decision to petition as an independent.

I encourage you to either a) support Ned Lamont or at a minimum, b) stay completely out of the Connecticut primary.

Rumor has it that Senator Boxer is considering, or has committed, to going to Connecticut and campaigning for Boltin' Joe. Boxer has been a strong supporter of liberal causes and the netroots in the past. If you're of a mind, perhaps you would like to drop her a line expressing your view.
