incumbent privilege, ugh

joe lieberman has gotten precisely what he deserves. and yet the times reports:

“As I see it, in this campaign, we’ve just finished the first half and the Lamont team is ahead. But in the second half, our team, Team Connecticut, is going to surge forward to victory in November,” Mr. Lieberman told cheering supporters last night.

such hubris! here's hoping the general election campaign goes unutterably badly.
