I'll say this for Ned Lamont (other than the obvious thing: he's not Joe Lieberman), he lacks nothing in the Stones For The Big Fight department. Check this out. (H/T Shakespeare's Sister). It includes a video of Nixon talking about Vietnam. Really, give it a whirl.

I'd love to see him actually run this bad boy on TV. Anyway, it's only a matter of time til some pundit, either pro- or anti-Lamont picks up on it, and it makes it onto the TV or print news.

Excellent. Didn't know about Nixon's complaints about a timetable for withdrawal. An amazing condmenation of not just Lieberman, but the W admin as well.

But we're no longer "staying the course", which W says he was never about (despite numerous videotaped speeches of him saying "stay the course"), nope. We're staying until the job is done. And since General Casey came out and said that we could probably hand things over in 12-18 months, I have to wonder, what "job" will be completed. The complete dissolution of Iraq into full blown civil war and anarchy, instead of the heightened sectarian violence we have today?

full blown civil war and anarchy

Hard to see that "we" have anything else in mind, based on the past few months. Just a daily procession of young American soldiers into the meat grinder.

Sorry. "heightened sectarian violence" should've appeared in quotes as its really a gross understatement of the situation there.

I think you nailed it, as a description of the past year or two.

But things have gotten completely out of hand lately.

Hell of an ad. I do wish they'd show it -- the CT electorate is one that would be repelled by Nixon in a big way.

You'd think so. Afterall, Connecticut's Lowell Weicker is best known for two things: being the most prominent GOPer to come out against Nixon during Watergate, and winning as an Independent years later.

That said, Lieberman is so far ahead of Lamont right now, I don't know what to think about Connecticut.

I'm from CT. I voted for Weicker when he lost against Lieberman, and then again when he ran for governor.

The Republicans in CT are putting their money behind Lieberman as the actual Republican running doesn't stand a chance and Lieberman has always been a conservative.

Don't let the blue state tag fool you. You don't become home to one of the wealthiest counties in the country because of altruism. 3 out of our 5 congressional reps are Republicans.

I'll be voting for Lamont. I'd rather vote for Ralph Ferucci (Green) but my hatred for Lieberman is too great.

Even though CT is part of the "tri-state area" I admit I haven't followed the Lamont-Lieberman race at anything but the national level.

What's your take on things, Ded? Is Lieberman's lead that solid? I also heard that Lamont didn't look too good in the debate, at least according to fellow Connecticuter Toast, at Two Glasses. You agree?

I never find out about the debates until after they happen. You'd think that the news media would make a more concerted effort to get the word out.

I heard from one source that Lieberman looked like a moderate between two extremes in the debate. But if you want to believe that Lieberman is a moderate, I've got some swampland to sell you.

Yes, the latest polls show Lieberman ahead. But some of us aren't taking the poll calls anymore because we're sick and tired of the fucking phone ringing all fucking day. So his lead may be real, it might not.

Don't feel bad about not knowing what's going on in the CT races. Tri-state area or not, there's too much people need to keep informed on regarding their own state. I don't know what's going on in the NJ races and not much about the NY races.

Yeah, I don't know much about the NJ races, or even the NY races that don't touch my district.

I think NY will see an complete rout this year. Dems in a walk.
