» Ned Lamont Gets Sucker-Punched from Blue Crab Boulevard
By Ned Lamont! I read the reports of Ned Lamont attacking Joe Liebermans criticism of Bill Clinton in a speech to the Senate in 1998. I didnt blog about at the time. I thought it was pretty cheesy, but it really didnt seem to b... [Read More]

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

My worldview is shaken. I was very comfortable with "I know it's a lie, I read it in the NYT." But now, if I believe they're lying, that makes Lieberman bad and Lamont good. Luckily, I do have a good memory. I just write this off as a fluke and go with everything else NYT has written opposing Lieberman and supporting Lamont and apply my lie scale. But my faith in the NYT's consistency is shaken!

Will the real Ned Lamont please stand up...please stand up

MayBee

Right twice, but... c'mon, Lamont is running with the big dogs now. The press is superficial and looking for quick headlines

The press shouldn't be dealing this this superficial stuff. No, the press should follow the blogs that follow Lamont, and focus on the kiss, and the sunset/sunrise commercial, and whatever it was that made Joe deserve blackface treatment.

Hilarious.

Lew, hon, nobody's perfect, not even the NYT.
Right Said Ned

Seriously, can a guy named "Ned" actually win?

Ellers Ellison "Ellsberg" McWilson

Jealous much?

Ned Lamot has had his statements on the floor of the Senate, has a law degree, and is author of the New York Times Best Selling Book “How Would I Act in 1998?” His comments often lead to front-page stories on most major newspapers in the country. And he has one of the most-read blogs on the Interent, after just 9 months of blogging. I love how all you super-important rightwing bloggers attack me, I mean him, just to get traffic.

I bid you GOOD DAY, sir.

Neddie-not ready is really named Theodore but goes by one of those cutesy rich nicknames that make him more lovable and no I don't think a guy named Ned can win as dogcatcher much less senator..Put a fork in him...

John Blake

Ned Lamont's great-uncle Corliss was Stalin's American paymaster to such as Alger Hiss, J. Robert Oppenheimer (whose portrait hangs in KGB Headquarters off Moscow's Dzerzhinsky Square), and the Rosenbergs. Corliss Lamont's generation-long support of self-proclaimed Communist Party activists and institutions, subversive of every American ideal, is an extraordinary indictment of vicious Statist tendencies which Connecticut's latest extreme-left Senatorial candidate inherits. Had Ned an ounce of character or integrity, regardless of actually thinking for himself, he would welcome discussion of his immediate progenitors, proudly proclaiming fealty to their "misunderstood" ideals. What's the matter, Ned? Afraid someone might call a spade a spade? Bring-um shovel... we'll need one to bury you with, come November.

"Seriously, can a guy named "Ned" actually win?"

Now just a diddly-arn minute.

Tom Maguire

Will the real Ned Lamont please stand up...

I think he IS standing - now get him a box.

Jealous much?

This is killing me, and my houseboy too.

GOOD DAY, SIR!

Lamont, you big dummy!!

"Who knows what evil lurks in the heart of Lieberman?" The Shadow knows!! Ned Lamont *is* the Shadow.

Lamont is learning what it's like to live in a glass house.

Folks can whine about the attitude of the Times for all eternity; Lamont ought to upgrade his own message management, starting yesterday.

True. Part of his message has been the shoddy way Leiberman treated Clinton in 1998. If the NYTs bring that up at dinner, he's going to have to have an answer. He didn't. The same is true of any of the other poo he and his surrogates have been throwing around.

This was always going to be his problem in using the DKos and Hamsher blogs so much in his campaign. We saw it coming- did he not?

Lamont Admits It's an Act - Writes Book

Mister Snitch!

Best. Thread. Ever.

MayBee

Legally, Ned Lamont can go after the NYT for non-adherence to JOM principles.

BumperStickerist

To shamelessly rip off a phrase popularized by one Duncan Black, I'd say Lamont Supporters are just a bunch of Whiny Ass Titty Babies. Examples:

Digby - Whiny Ass Titty Baby
Hamsher - Whiny Ass Titty Baby
Markos - Whiny Ass Titty Baby
Hardin Smith - Whiny Ass Titty Baby
Duncan Black - Whiny Ass Titty Baby
Greenwald - Proxically Whiny Ass Titty Babies

Bumper, YEP!

------------------

Lieberman's staff on Saturday called Lamont's recent criticisms hypocritical in light of a 1998 letter sent by e-mail. However, Lamont said he stands by his position that the public rebuke exacerbated the situation.

OH flipping priceless...tell me the Lieberman campaign spammed TownHouse with a copy of theis email. Just spamming Hamsher with it would be great.

Ned is going to announce term limits for democrats and earmarking for all government expenditures.

windansea

he's going to "announce" it??

Long live King Ned!

Jor

HEH, gotta agree, Lamont shoulda seen this coming.

Jane

Ned is going to announce term limits for democrats and earmarking for all government expenditures.

Well that is going to bum out porkbusters, who just won a big victory on the earmarking business.

Slartibartfast

Perhaps Lamont objects to what Lieberman said, but is giving him props for style?

Nah, probably not.

Slartibartfast

Lamont always has this out:

"I was for Lieberman's rebuke of Clinton before I was against it."

Works for me.

Rick Ballard

I dunno, Slarti. Unready Neddy just doesn't seem to be able to project the same level of insincerity of which Kerry showed such mastery. If you listen to Kerry for five minutes (don't forget the large emesis basin), you understand that there is no level to which he will not sink in pursuit of self advancement. With Neddy the lack of skill at prevarication is almost instantly obvious. I have no doubt that he fully shares Kerry's "me, first, last and always" principles but he is truly a clumsy neophyte wrt the ability to project them.

BTW - don't refresh - leave and reenter and the repeats will stop.

Slartibartfast

Hey, even those of us who've been around for a while can screw up now and again. Even without alcohol.

clarice

Rick, I have marveled at the capacity of Kerry to draw a single vote because (while you correctly note he's far batter at this than Lamont) he still is so obvious. I think his fans must be hypnotized by his odd speaking style.

He says his mother's last words to him were "integrity, integrity". She sure had his number.Mine to my son would be,"I love you and you have always made me proud to be your mother."

**bEtter, not batter*****8

Sue

Clarice,

I never believed that story anyway. He makes them up as the situation warrants.

Extraneus

You guys have probably seen this, linked at Drudge.

Ahh, but the key point is to show your "in-ness" with the In-Crowd by calling them "WATBs". That way you can feel hip and exclusive, and you know its witty and sardonic because Atrios made it up!

Unready Neddy just doesn't seem to be able to project the same level of insincerity of which Kerry showed such mastery.

Oh, man - I was in favor of laughing out before I was against it (and settled for a Coke-spray).

AST

When you think that Lamont criticized Lieberman for not defending Clinton's use of an intern for his sexual gratification, it tells you a lot about the values of neo-progressives like MoveOn and Kos, and the hypocrisy of their positions on issues like sexual harassment.

This is a Democrat intramural fight. The press is liberal but it's not Kos liberal. If Lieberman were a Republican, they'd have buried his response to Lamont's criticism.
