Lieberman Pounding Lamont

Well, looks like there will be no joy in kookville, mighty Neddy has struck out.

Sen. Joe Lieberman has increased his lead over Democratic challenger Ned Lamont to 17 percentage points, according to the first Quinnipiac University poll taken since the two faced off in a debate earlier this week.

Lieberman, who is running as an independent after losing the Aug. 8 Democratic primary to Lamont, leads the Greenwich businessman 52 percent to 35 percent among likely voters in the poll released Friday. Republican Alan Schlesinger trailed with 6 percent and 7 percent were undecided.

Predictably the dogs by the fire at the lake are petulant.

All I want to know is this — Democratic leaders like Harry Reid and Chuck Schumer may make pale endorsements of Lamont as the Democratic candidate, but they don't have the stones to say that Joe Lieberman is not running as a Democrat and that his actions are bad for the party and he hurts Democratic chances to take both the House and the Senate in the fall. The CW on this one seems to be they don't want to piss off Joe and drive him into the arms of the Republicans, so they take him at his word that he will caucus with them if they just STFU.

Christy Hardin Smith seems to feel this will be a bad day for Lieberman:

The Lamont campaign rolled out its latest ad — starring Connecticut's senior Senator Christopher Dodd. Something tells me that Turncoat Joe is going to be a little more petulant than usual today.

This is just the first of many things going on between now and election day. DNC Chairman Howard Dean will be campaigning with Ned at a rally in Hartford today at noon — if you are in Connecticut, it should be a great event from everything I'm hearing — so take your lunch hour with Ned and Howard Dean!

If you aren't happy with what you are hearing about poll numbers or establishment Democratic support for the Connecticut Senate race, well, here's the solution: get up off your butt and do something about it – you can volunteer for Ned's campaign, for canvassing, or calling, or whatever, by checking here.

The Kossacks are still convinced that Lamont is going to win:

I'm optimistic because the energy in Connecticut is palpable, more so than what Lieberman's mercenary ground team can muster. I'm optimistic because we haven't seen or heard the last of Schlesinger. And I'm optimistic because I believe in people-power. It ousted one of the most powerful Democrats in Congress in a primary. It helped Tester win a crushing primary victory in Montana despite being tied in the polls on election eve. And it helped Jim Webb win his Virginia primary despite not running a single television ad.

This is the year we're turning the political world upside down. And Lieberman is destined to be a casualty.

Matt Stoller, My DD's incredible 12-year-old blogger, remains upbeat:

And then there's Schlesinger. It's too bad there are only three debates, but he's starting to get air time on local news and he's being quoted in news articles. It's unlikely he'll stay at 6 percent, since there is a hardcore Republican fringe that hates immigration and Social Security as much as he does and will vote their hearts on election day.

Irony of ironies, it appears that the liberal bloggers are pulling for the Republican and the conservative bloggers are pulling for the Independent.

Hugh Hewitt: KerryHaters was on this story a long time ago. How could the elite media not have asked these questions before now?

Ankle-Biting Pundits: Our friends Pat and Kitty at Kerry Haters deserve the blog equivalent of a Pulitzer for their coverage of Kerry's intricate web of lies regarding Vietnam.
