Joementum Is Slowmentum

Ned Lamont has grabbed the lead over Joe Lieberman in the Connecticut Senatorial race according to the latest Quinnipiac poll 51% - 47%. Both would easily defeat republican card sharp Alan Schlesinger, with Lieberman holding a decided edge in a three way race.

If there is one thing to be learned about this race, it's that the folks running Lieberman's campaign should be put on the Bob Shrum do not call these people, they have no idea what they're doing list. For a three term incumbent to be taken to the woodshed by a virtual unknown like Lieberman has so far doesn't say much about their ability.

One other thing about this race. Lieberman constantly says that Lamont is a one issue candidate, that issue being Lamont's opposition to the Iraq War. Lieberman should remember how he started his political career, as a Vietnam opposition candidate. I agree with Josh Marshall, it does appear that Lieberman has had his head in the clouds a bit too long.
