Lamont Roundup

Look folks, I was prepared for another one of Stoller's pep talks.

I brewed beer and helped run Blue Jersey waiting for someone to say, "hey this is Jersey not CT."

When I heard Lieberman's speach I was pretty confused and nervous. I thought, dammit, we are not out of the woods yet. And we AREN'T. People, if you think that this story will die, think again. Think of how everybody in DC loves Joe. He's on TV almost as much as McCain...

If you think we can be complacent for a little while, think again. Get on that blogging high horse and keep at this race. Lamont's speech was simply awesome. If you stopped whatever you were doing just to listen to that moment Tuesday night, and got some goosebumps in the prossess, then blog on...

Keep on top of Joe right now. Because somehow, all the CW peddlers are selling these days is the line about how winning an election is (perhaps racist) a sure sign of loosing the next one.

Do I have to remind people, that for the last 3 elections Lieberman has been on the ticket, he has lost. (Sure 2000 was a close one). He's O'fur threee folks.

But some Democrats who take their talking points from the press will spread those lies like wildfire. Like those Zombie lies.

Somehow, whatever was put in the soup for the Lamont campaign actually turned out like soup. Not like something that reselmbes Elmer's glue. The recipe won the election. Period. No need to hangwring. Those who helped by all means gloat.

Think. If it were the Republicans who had won an election, by hacking some websites, race baiting, having crazy people helping them get out the vote, the press would pretty much get on their calloused knees and commenced the countdown ... you know (sorry for the use of metaphor as an image fabricating device).

But nay, it was Democrats who put a Democrat in line for a sitting Democratic seat!!! The GAUL OF THESE PEOPLE!!!! Getting a net ZERO Legislative advantage!!!


PS. Come February or so, Vote for Stoller's post for best post of the year. I think he deserves it.
