"Well Damn Sam. I'm rubbing my eyes and looking at the news, asking myself if it's really real. I remember what a rush it was when Joe Duffey won the primary in 1970. We were flying.
The three way is a major drain. Duffey lost because the Dems were divided. Joe L. is foolhardy to think Repugs will prefer him, rather than picking up the seat for themself. They want that subpoena power to stay with them.
The woodshed better be reserved for the week. There is some kind of back room deal in the works on Rummy and Lieberman. Chris Matthews joked about it on Keith Olberman's show. That's the second reference to it in a week. That helps the CT race, but what kind of Sec of Defense is he gonna be?
It was so hard to vote against an old friend. It made me sad. The day Gore announced Lieberman as his running mate, I was in D.C.on CT. Indian tribal business and celebrated the news of Joe on the ticket with Joe Duffey and Anne Wexler, the other key McCarthy, Duffey person. It was a memory lane thing. We were all good friends.
It was a gorgeous day here in CT. I went to vote at the Nathan Hale School. There were two Lamont people at the road, on each side of the driveway, so people would know where to turn in. Then another one at the edge of the path into the school. No Lieberman people, anywhere. I felt encouraged.
I went to the beach to chill and see if I could fathom how my little group of Holocaust survivors voted, without prying. it's been very difficult for them to decide because they were angry at Joe for Iraq and wished he would admit he was wrong. but then the war started in Isreal and Lebanon and their fear, I think made them seek hardliners, like this is good for Israel. I think this is the reason the poll margins narrowed. Plus Ned saying Isreal has the right to defend itself, was a turnoff to pro Palestinians, strong group here in CT. Ned will have to clean that up, or it will cut into his support, big time.
This race is a doozie, but then, aren't they all? It's been so fun nailbiting with ya'al.
Now Condi, them was some birth pangs. It's a new dawn, color it peach."

"I suspect that yes, they can hear us pretty clearly now. Sam Seder made a great point concerning all the nasty remarks made by various media people to the effect that demonizing the blogosphere was akin to demonizing the telephone. What a hoot. So true."
