There have been some hopeful signs from reporters that they "get" the signifigance of the Lamont/ Lieberman race this Washington Post piece shows that there's still a few who are completely out to lunch.
What really stuck out like a skunk at summer camp was this paragraph-
The Connecticut race may be seen as an intensification of the partisan, polarized politics of the Bush era. Lieberman is paying a price for being an advocate of bipartisanship.
Lieberman is no advocate of bipartisanhip. Lieberman is an advocate of 1) Lieberman and 2) REPUBLICAN partisanship which he has absolutely no problem supporting. It's only when Democrats start to stand up to Republican bullying that he gets all hot and bothered.
