Lieberman's Loss

I think Jonah Goldberg says it well for me:

What Lieberman’s showing really reveals are the limits of the supposedly “people-powered movement” behind Lamont. According to initial reports, Lieberman was strongest in Connecticut’s vestigial blue-collar areas. Lamont, a multimillionaire limousine liberal, represents the modern McGovernite rank-and-file of the Democratic party. His most ardent supporters are more likely to carry a laptop than a lunch bucket, and they are still inclined to blame America first.

Though Lieberman may — and probably will — be reelected as an independent, it’s sad news that he’s a pariah in his own party. But it’s hardly surprising.
