(Newser) – In case you wondered how much Dems dislike Joe Lieberman right now, It took MoveOn just two days to rake in $1 million to oppose his 2012 reelection. The fundraising drive launched Tuesday, after Lieberman’s threatened filibuster killed any semblance of a public option, sailed past its initial $400,000 goal, the Huffington Post reports, and hit seven figures yesterday. The group also put out a derisive web ad, in which a puppet Lieberman demands his name be added to the Pledge of Allegiance, and that he be given four more inches of height in exchange for his vote.
