It's not morning in Connecticut

Joe Lieberman's team can't even make a fake New Age meditation tape. Holy Joe's new ad is supposed to lull the viewer into blissed out submission with serene images of the "good things" Joe has accomplished over the last eighteen years.

A Kos diarist has confirmed that the stills identified as sunrise footage are in fact sunsets in Santa Barbara. (One of them is shown here.)

The newest ad - which seems like a combination of Stewart Smalley's "deep thoughts" and a Viagra ad for when the time is right - appears to show a sunset.
Yes, the sun is setting on Lieberman's political career, and his adviser Dan Gerstein continues to insist that it's a sunrise.

The next Lieberman ad will feature a chinchilla loose in the woods and insist it's a bear.
