Coming a bit late to this…but it’s worth a look: Via Lamontblog, the campaign blog of Ned Lamont, who’s trying to nab Joe Lieberman’s spot on the November ballot, a feisty new Lamont campaign ad. It features video of George W. Bush but the voice and statements of Lieberman, and ends with the capper, “If it talks like George W. Bush and acts like George W.

Dear Reader,

This feels like the most important fundraising drive since I've been CEO of Mother Jones, with staggeringly high stakes and so much uncertainty. In "News Is Just Like Waste Management," I try to unpack the reality we all face and how we can rise to the challenge. If you're able to, this is a critical moment to support Mother Jones’ nonprofit journalism: We need to raise $400,000 to help cover the vital reporting projects we have planned, and right now is no time to pull back.
