Lieberman/Rove campaign video?

Responding to a series of setbacks and the surging Ned Lamont campaign, Joe "BushKiss" Lieberman turns to the attack ad. Jane Hamsher writes:

"Since Holy Joe seems to be channeling the ghost of Lee Atwater of late, some are speculating that Bush’s favorite Democrat has taken on Karl Rove as a campaign strategist."
This abomination of an ad ends with the (legally mandated) "I'm Joe Lieberman and I approve of this message":

Referring to speculation that Lieberman may run as an independent if he loses the primary or, as I suspect, become a Republican, Hamsher continues:
"Since he’s collected the prestigious endorsement of Bill O’Reilly you have to wonder at the wisdom of this — what will he do without all his Republican pals to back him up?"
