Lamont vs Lieberman cage match

Solomon from Solomonia will be covering the Lamont-Lieberman in Connecticut election for Pajamas Media. He begins by comparing Lieberman and Lamont's websites for both content, technical savvy and taste. "It's like a blog war with voting, ballots and millions of dollars at play! Woohoo!" Lieberman apparently closed his comments section after having gotten the "treatment" from the usual suspects. You can read some of the comments right here. I used to think working in carnival freak show was a low-rent profession. But that was before I discovered what political infighting was like.

Clinton, Spitzer easily win Democratic nod:

With 95 percent of the vote in, the former first lady was leading challenger Jonathan Tasini, 83.2 percent to 16.8 percent, The New York Times said.

Union organizer Tasini had tried to ride dissatisfaction with the Iraq war, which denied Sen. Joe Lieberman, D-Conn., the party's nod for re-election in his state. Clinton voted to give President George Bush the authority to invade Iraq, but has become one of the intervention's sharpest critics.

Clinton and Spitzer Win

Lieberman's crew couldn't be running a more stupid campaign. One would think a guy who is going to be depending on crossover Republican votes to saver his ass from the Moveon trolls would not say right up front that he will vote partyline with the Dems if elected. Republicans probably figured that anyway, so they can only respect him less for so slavishly pursuing a party (the Dems) that has just treated him as a very public urinal.

And yet...Lamont's people are even more stupid. In addition to being the acknowledged butt-children of the rapacious currency speculator, they are out tonight with a muddle of an anti-war commercial (war dead recitation gambit coupled with "See me in my dark blue senator suit" overlay) that wholly misses the irony of the statue at the base of which the little Moveon urchin-in-the-rain is reading the list...General Lafayette! Nothing like framing a t.v. ad to squelch a virgin democracy, via the withdrawal of our military support, at the feet of a staue to the military hero from another land who helped birth our democracy.

This all proves that reality is far stranger than fiction. If this keeps up in this vein, together they might make the Republican candidate a viable choice!

Nice piece by 3case other than his silly belief that the "noble purple-fingered Iraqis" have determined that democracy is not within their cultural blood. And that a "stay the course" strategy of saying no amount of American blood and treasure is too little to NOT let us uplift the noble Iraqi people is a stillborn strategy.

As for Lamont and Lieberman...as a former CT resident, I see Lieberman is to the Left of 90 other Senators, and is more of an inside the Beltway crony of the Ruling Elites believing he is entitled to the Senator spot because he is Mighty Joe Lieberman than he is an effective servant of the people of the State. He voted for Iraq only because he is a huge Israel supporter.

Lieberman's desperation to cling to power and privilege is evident in him thinking that Republicans who still love Bush HAVE to vote for him, while he tries publicly to mend fences with the Left and big liberal Jewish donors by asuring them he will be all but in lockstep with Teddy Kennedy in the future.

It is the Republican's curse that they have not found a credible Republican to run against Lieberman, in fact, their candidates have been awful..

That said, many Republicans believe that Ned Lamont is less liberal than Lieberman on a variety of issues, that Lieberman is a played-out career politician, and a vote for Lamont would be in the interest of Republicans in dividing the Democrats.

I add that the Jewish donor base of the DNC, 50% of net contributions received, is also deeply divided and upset about the wisdom of the Lieberman coup and having to choose between Jews wanting Soros-like anti-Israel anti-West activism and those Jews in the Zionist wing.
