Lamont v. Lieberman debate (video)
By all accounts, and by the MSNBC on-air poll, Ned Lamont won the debate against the Dem incumbent Joe Lieberman hands down.
Couple of interesting points. First, from John Amato, a video of the Wall St. Journal's John Harwood noting that Lieberman used Reagan/Bush talking points in the debate, doing nothing to separate himself from the Republican party, a major reason why Lamont appears positioned to win their upcoming primary.
Harwood: He used the old Ronald Reagan line, "There you go again," to Ned Lamont and he used the strategy that George W. Bush used against John Kerry in 2004Ã¢â‚¬Â¦Another creepy development is a statement from Lieberman supporter John Droney, who scolded Jews after a poll showed a slight edge for Lamont with CT's Jews.
"When he's in trouble like this, they all ought to rally to him. It's too bad that you have to listen to an Irish-American to realize that you've got to support your own home cooking."Note to Droney from a Long Island Jew: Do shut up. (C&L, Lamontblog)
