"Ned Lamont has a messy desk"

Looking for a Monday chuckle? Check out this new ad for the Ned Lamont Senatorial campaign designed to get Joe Lieberman's camp to focus on the issues.

"But since a national television audience doesn’t stop his campaign from distortions, half-truths and outright lies, why should anyone expect him to keep it honest while running millions of dollars worth of attack ads in Connecticut?" says the Lamont web site, referring to some on the fibs told by Lieberman in last week's debate and the nasty ads they've been running. "Since Senator Lieberman said he 'works hard' for those contributions, we’ve created our own attack ad … one that goes after Ned. Hopefully that will ease the burden created while tending to the corporate interests and political action committees filling his campaign coffers."
