The Washington Post and Hartford Courant have endorsed Joe Lieberman while the New York Times backs Ned Lamont with this rousing show of support:
Mr. Lamont, a wealthy businessman from Greenwich, seems smart and moderate, and he showed spine in challenging the senator while other Democrats groused privately. He does not have his opponent’s grasp of policy yet.Ehhh…he’ll do. Mark on Decision 08 hits it:
Basically, it’s a poorly written screed that spends hundreds of words saying one thing: we don’t like George Bush, and since he’s not running, Joe Lieberman is his proxy.IMHO, I refuse to believe that petulant Connecticut voters will jettison an experienced Senator who has voted with the Democrats 90% of the time for a dilettante who claims he’s ready for the Senate because (as his latest commercials note) he once volunteered to teach school in Bridgeport.
Extra – From the Lamont blog: “Ned will be on the Colbert Report, taking on ultra-conservative pundit Stephen Colbert.” “Ultra-conservative”?!? Bwahahahaha!!!
