Ned Lamont’s bid to capture Joe Lieberman’s Connecticut Senate seat took a quantum leap last week when Lamont captured enough votes to force a primary against Lieberman. Jane at FDL has a great roundup of what the establishment is saying about Ned.
Because it occurs to me that there must be many people rethinking their positions. And I wonder what they?re doing tonight:
* Chuck Schumer and the DEMOCRATIC Senatorial Campaign Committee, who has so far refused to commit to support the DEMOCRATIC nominee in the Connecticut race?.
* Harry Reid, who cut a bad deal with Holy Joe to support him if he?d agree to run as a Democrat (Joe promptly punk?d him)?.
* Hillary Clinton, who issued a bunch of bullshit claims about Joe?s fictional opposition to Social Security privatization in support of him?
