Lieberman Leads Lamont 49 To 38

This runs against the "question the timing" stuff, as the lead has actually narrowed since the last poll by Qunnipinianainaninniac.

Still, that's a pretty good lead.

You know what I said about Lieberman dropping out of the race under pressure from Democrats? Yeah, forget I said anything about that.

Here's an additional side-benefit: With Lieberman now with a commanding, well-nigh insurmountable lead, all the attention that would have gone to Kos and the lefty nutroots is greatly reduced. Yes, they won a Democratic primary. But they can't win a general election, which is what counts.

Brit Hume was chuckling his ass off yesterday as he read Lamont's statement claiming to be a fiscal conservative. On one hand, I have to admit, laughing out loud as you read a statement from a candidate is not, precisely, "fair and balanced."

On the other hand, it was pretty funny, and I think Brit Hume should get to enjoy himself at somone else's expense every once in a while. He hasn't been on the Sunday show with Juan Williams for weeks; he needs a new mouse to bat around.

Correction: I originally wrote that the lead had opened up, as I was comparing it to the 46-41 edge shown by Rasmussen. But Qunnippiac says their last poll showed a 53-41 edge.

Oddly, both candidates lost support since the last poll (as did the Republican candidate). Lamont gained a scary 1%. I suppose that means more people are open minded and still deciding, but, with Lieberman at 49%, he doesn't need many undecideds to break his way.

Nits and Pieces: I wrote "has... shrank." I guess that's a good reason not to split up verbs. You get lost. I changed it to "has... narrowed," as "has... shrunk" sounds funny to me.

Thanks to CraigC.

And thanks, generally, to everyone, especially Phil, for being on nit patrol. Sometimes I get to these mistakes, othertimes I let them go, as I consider a rather slapdash regard for spelling and grammar an essential part of the Ace of Spades Lifestyle (TM).

The AoS Lifestyle is all first-draft, baby.
