Whatever Happened to Ned Lamont?

Here's a polling gem (uncovered by Matt Drudge) that you probably won't find on tonight's edition of "Countdown." Looks like the poster boy for the Daily Kos/Keith Olberman wing of the Democratic Party is headed for an election day whuppin,' courtesy of Joe Lieberman.

Still, at least Mr. Lamont has been consistent in sustaining his beliefs. Wish we could say the same for the Democratic senate candidate in Virginia, Jim Webb. According to John Miller at NRO, Mr. Webb has had a real change of heart when it comes to Bill Clinton, a man whose administration he once described as "the most corrupt in modern memory." Yesterday, Clinton was on the stump for Webb, raising money for his effort to unseat George Allen. Regarding his newfound-friend-and-champion-fundraiser, Webb said "things had changed."


Hat tip: Powerline.

The fever swamps of the ultra-left blogosphere are not deep---indeed the left and Dems are characterized best as victims of dimestore psychobabble---but they are flecked everywhere with will o' the wisps of autistic wrong-headedness. Lieberman now leads Lamont by 17 points, but the loony-tuney crooners of craziness have some crack-brained observations at My D[elirious]D[elusions] and, of course, DailyDwarfism which believes that Chris Dodd will ride into town and drag nonsensical Ned to victory on imaginary coattails that only exist in the drug-addled minds of chronic recidivist confabulators.

Leftie blogs are worth reading only as a cautionary tale of what happens to the mind with too many stimulants, depressants, anti-depressants and self-administered BS.

Sniffing their own farts gets these people off, and they have legions of loonies who can't think, but can read enough to drink the Kool-Aid and join the lemming plunge.

I am a long time admirer of James Webb, (I think I've read all his books, and his newspaper commentary has always been well-reasoned), and I cannot begin to express how disappointed I have been in him. His objections to the Iraq War just seem to have driven him off the deep end. Lots of folks agree with his arguments on that subject, but his cure is worse than the disease.

I never thought I'd see Reagan's secretary of the navy in McGovern's and Clinton's party.
