Brilliant Analyis Of The Lamont Win
You MUST check this out from Kossack "thereisnospoon", here:
Let's face some cold, hard facts, people. We didn't do this, because what we supposedly DID was impossible to do--in any politcal climate.Go read the whole thing. It's brilliant.
In one corner, you had a bunch of unpaid volunteers, Internet rabble-rousers, and an inexperienced politician whose highest post had been County Selectman.
In the other, you had the three-time Senator, former vice-presidential candidate, visible party statesman, Bill Clinton, Hillary Clinton, Harry Reid, Barbara Boxer, the other popular CT senator Dodd, most of Organized Labor, the women's groups and the environmental groups, most of traditional Democratic party support, paid lobbyist support, paid armies of GOTV staff, the slick ad money, the top DLC consultants, and a 3 to 1 budget gap.
I'm sorry. That's not David vs. Goliath. This isn't even the NBA champions versus a rec league team.That's more like an ant vs. my shoe.
And the shoe lost.
