The Democracy Strikes Back: D-Day for Holy Joe

I've been following the Connecticut Senate race (at just about every political site there is) and don't have much to add, except that it would warm my heart to see Joe "I'd say that the Bush recession would be followed by the Dean depression" Lieberman slink away in defeat.

Color me shocked that Lamont's been able to mount a serious challenge at all given the inherent advantages an 18-year incumbent enjoys. The fact that he's actually expected to win today is mind-boggling and speaks to the complete ineptitude and the attitude of entitlement of both Lieberman and his campaign team.

Good luck Mr. Lamont. May all the votes be counted accurately.
