Ned Lamont

I confess to being out of the loop lately when it comes to primary races, challengers and the like. So seeing Ned Lamont, Lieberman's opponent in CT, speak so eloquently, passionately and forthrightly on The Colbert Report last night really wowed me. Watch for yourself, below.

Lamont's been fighting an uphill battle against Joe Lieberman, a 35-year incumbent, about whom the only thing democratic is the letter "D" after his name. Joementum, as he's less than affectionately titled, is a verified Bush bootlicker whose quotes are more easily digested when assumed made by Bush himself. He supports corporations over people, no timetable on Iraq, and basically grovels about the GOP table like a starved mutt in search of scraps.

But, I digress. This isn't about Joe's fealty to King George. Instead, it's about Ned Lamont. He's got a voice that rings true: in politics, that's often a curse. But for many dissatisfied, disillusioned Americans it's like hearing Moses call from the wilderness about now. Idealism, passion, drive trump his inexperience. In fact, in the face of Leiberman, who has spoken about his position as though it were a lifelong appointment and about as interesting as watching geriatric shuffleboard, Lamont's personality shines even greater.
