Ned Lamont: a threat to democracy
Have you noticed that there's none of the usual process reporting about the Connecticut senate race?
We hear all these analyses about what Lamont's challenge means, but I haven't read a single thing that discusses the simple fact that Lamont's lead is due in large part to his waging a nimble, intelligent campaign with some of the wittiest political ads you're likely to see, while Lieberman's campaign has been disjointed, reactive and dull.
That, more than anything else, has been responsible for Lamont's remarkable 29-point swing over the last two months.
You'd never know it because the chattering class has worked itself into a lather about this race. There's an avalanche of weird analyses out there, most of which defy simple logic.
