Unfortunately for America, Connecticut voters aren’t casting their votes today in the Lieberman/Lamont race because if they were, Ned Lamont would win and the US Senate would be rid of the pathological, warmongering narcissist Joe Lieberman (CFL-AIPAC).

The poll, commissioned by Daily Kos, found that Ned would handily beat Joe by 8 points today. That Ned was willing to enter the race last year when the geniuses at the head of the Democratic Party were telling everyone to shut up about the war, put his own money into challenging the war lobby by beating its own toad prince in the primary and then fighting him and his Democratic Senate buddies in the general, is to his credit. He awakened the shiftless and the recalcitrant up to the reality that the party’s voters wanted their candidates to do more than smile, kiss babies and be Not Republican. We want them to end the war.

We owe him and everyone who worked on his behalf a great debt of gratitude.

Thanks, Ned.
