Train Wreck

David Sirota nails it. Connecticut for Lieberman is a train wreck:

As I said before - something has gone horribly, horribly wrong over at Lieberman HQ. Some D.C. insiders and corporate lobbyists have tried to question whether a first-time candidate like Ned Lamont is ready to be a U.S. Senator - as if somehow business experience doesn't matter and the only thing that does matter is being an insulated career politician with experience hobnobbing in the Senate club. But I'd say it's the other way around - people should be asking themselves, when looking at this kind of behavior, whether Joe Lieberman is fit to be in elected office, because clearly this is a guy who has lost control of his faculties.

Even Shays beat Lieberman to the punch in running away from Iraq. And now Lieberman is left stranded on an island with Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld, and maybe 25% of the American public at most, in basically defending the Iraq war as it is being presently conducted, and calling his critics Al Qaeda sympathizers.

And now he's freaking out. As is his press operation.
I agree with everything you say, but I have to ask: isn't lieberman still ahead in the polls? And if so, how the hell is it possible given what a bad campaign Lieberman is running?
