Lamont’s campaign is spending $93,000 this week on a series of statewide television ads that call Lieberman a “turncoat.” One ad suggests that Connecticut residents should wear their coats inside-out to protest Lieberman’s general election campaign.
Lamont predicted the ads will appeal to his base and undecided voters. “It was a humorous look at a guy that’s been a lifelong Democrat who overnight changed his stripes,” he said.
So we go from “subverting the democratic process” to “turncoat” in a matter of a few weeks.
This is what happens when one doesn’t worship at the altar of the Nutroots. Those who don’t must pay the price.
