Colbert: Why Is Bush Running Away From Lamont?s Opponent?

Stephen Colbert wonders if Bush is refusing to endorse Ned Lamont?s Republican opponent in the Conn. Senate race because the president is so toxic these days. But Colbert also has another theory…

Kristol: Lamont Victory a Win for the Terrorists

We usually don’t link to people so inveterately immune to things like evidence and actual expert opinion, but if you really want to see delusion in the flesh, check out Weekly Standard editor Bill Kristol talking about how Ned Lamont’s victory helped the terrorists.

Feingold: Lieberman ‘Doesn’t Get It’

The hard-charging senator from Wisconsin swatted down Sen. Joe Lieberman’s claim that pulling out of Iraq would only embolden future would-be plane-bombing terrorists: ?Joe is showing with that regrettable statement that he doesn?t get it. He doesn?t get it.”

Lieberman Seeks to Exploit Terror News for Political Gain

Sen. Joe Lieberman seized upon news of the foiled British plane bombers to say that a victory for his Democratic rival, Ned Lamont, in November would constitute a victory for the terrorists.

  • You know, when John at AMERICAblog asked who was going to be the first one to exploit this situation for political gain, he thought it would at least be a Republican….

    Lamont Heads New GOP Bogeymen Lineup

    RNC Chairman Ken Mehlman has released a video titled “From NDR to Ned Lamont: The Democratic Party’s Transformation From Strength to Weakness.” Its message is obvious. Its logic is ludicrous—i.e. that only blind adherence to Bush’s failed policies will make America safe. (More after the jump….)

    Stephanopoulos: Rove Wants to Help Lieberman

    The ABC News host reports: “According to a close Lieberman adviser, the President’s political guru, Karl Rove, has reached out to the Lieberman camp with a message straight from the Oval Office: ‘The boss wants to help. Whatever we can do, we will do.’ ”
    Quelle surprise….

  • Also, top Senate Dems Schumer, Reid and Dodd throw their support to Lamont (but stop short of calling on Lieberman to drop his independent bid).

    Poll: Lamont 54%, Lieberman 41%

    With only five days to go before their Aug. 8 Democratic primary, the political novice has opened up a commanding lead on the three-term senator from Connecticut. (Even with the 3% margin of error, Lamont is dusting his opponent.) h/t: Huff Po

    Lieberman to Conn. Voters: Drop Dead!

    Well, we knew this was coming, but now it’s official: Sen. Joe Lieberman has created a new political party that he will use to appear on the November ballot if he loses the Democratic primary in August.

  • As such a move would amount to sticking his thumb in the eye of Conn. voters, the name of his new political party is deliciously ironic: Connecticut for Lieberman.

  • Maybe he should have picked something more representative of his backing: Lieberman for Lieberman

    Lamont Fends Off Lieberman With Fox News Sword

    Cute moment in Thursday’s debate in Connecticut’s Dem. Senate primary race: Sen. Lieberman tried to interrupt challenger Ned Lamont and Lamont silenced him by saying “...this isn’t Fox News, sir.”

    Lamont Seen as ‘Serious’ Challenger to Lieberman

    A key Democratic Party opinion-maker says this about Ned Lamont, who is challenging Joe Lieberman for a Conn. Senate seat: “He’s intelligent. He’s accomplished. There are no personal warts. He teaches in the Bridgeport public schools. How many people of his pedigree and background go do that?”

  • Paul Krugman: A Bad Day for Joe Lieberman

    The N.Y. Times columnist writes that the Connecticut senator is in trouble, as evidenced by neophyte challenger Ned Lamont’s strong showing at the state Democratic Party’s nomination convention. Lieberman’s problem: He consistently parrots GOP talking points and has fallen out of touch with Connecticut voters.
