    To follow up on Lanny Davis’ comments from yesterday:

    Yesterday at this time Lieberman was a dear friend under attack by hate-filled extremists. Today, he is The Enemy. Lanny Davis is first and foremost a political terrorist, and if asked he will go after Lieberman they way he has gone after Republicans and women who accused WJC.

    Yes MW that is a very good point. If Lieberman thinks he has any friends in the Dem party, he better think twice. Party above all else should be the motto for the Dem party, much like it was for the Nazi party. – Lorica

    Not that this should surprise Lieberman. Remember the ’04 election? Gore thru his support publically, big announcement and everything, behind another candidate in the primaries without even having the common decency to call Lieberman beforehand and let him know, and Lieberman was his running mate in ’00! Lieberman heard about it when he was asked by reporters what he thought about it. That’s the Democrats for you, best friends today, tomorrow they throw you under the bus without so much as a word.

    It is the “day after”, so to speak, and the Connecticut Democratic party is in shambles. They have nominated a candidate who not only has little chance of winning in November, but who also blew a big lead going into the Democratic primary yesterday.

    As if this were not bad enough, there is the Jim Crow-esque anti-Semitism and race-baiting of the nutroots who ran his campaign. This almost cost Lamont the nomination, and it most likely will cost him the general election, patricularly when it becomes clear that it will hinder Lamont’s efforts among Republicans and independents. Worst of all, the nutroots will see yesterday’s victory as an endorsement of not only their candidate but of the nutroot’s tactics. Do you really think they will tone it down after winning?

    This is Lamont’s Catch-22 – the tactics that helped him squeak by yesterday will hurt him in November. If he moderates his views, the nutroots will eat him alive. If he “stays the course” and continues to play to his racist, anti-Semitic base, the majority of voters in Connecticut will wrinkle their noses in disgust. And if it turns out that someone in the Lamont campaign had anything to do with the shutting down of Lieberman’s website, there could be indictments in the near future.

    Get ready for the filthiest campaign in history. So far.
