(I don't know why you wanted me to change the picture, Tim;
the other one looked just like you! hee-hee)
Tim Tagaris wrote a brilliant diary on MLN and KOS about the campaign. That, coupled with David Sirota's piece, pretty much cover the campaign to the point that I've decided not to write an opinion piece on the election; these guys got it knocked.
I'll probably just do a post-mortum from my own perspective, and not try to analyze the shananegans that went on in the corridors and back rooms of power.
Or maybe I'll express myself through video. If I can take going over all that old footage yet again.
Read Tim's diary over on MLN.
And if you haven't yet, read David Sirota's piece on the aftermath.
They tell it pretty much like I guessed. The outcome of the election was clearly affected by National Democrats, National Republicans, and Joe Lieberman's relentless lust for power.
Sadly, there's just not much room for an honest, decent man like Ned Lamont in that equation. Sure, some mistakes were made by the campaign; but the deck was obviously stacked against us. It was a million-to-one shot to begin with, and we've made it farther than I ever thought possible.
All the same...I wouldn't have missed it for the world.
