BobTube: The Ned Lamont Thank You Party

First of all, I had a great time at BAR on Thursday night. Thanks for the drinks and the pizza, Ned Lamont!

Allan Appel wrote up the evening for the New Haven Independent:

“I was running against two guys who said that, yes, the troops might begin coming home in ’07 or ’08,” [Lamont] said to a crowd made happy by plentiful pizza, beer, and wine. “But I didn’t know they meant 3008!”

Lamont announced no specific new initiatives he was working on in regard to the war or other matters, but his condemnatory remarks of the Bush escalation plan used language as stark, if not more so, than any that had emerged in his campaign.

“I think we should take the troops out of Baghdad immediately,” he said. “Shia and Sunni agree on only one thing, and that is that it’s OK to kill Americans. Bush doesn’t listen to his generals, to his commission, or to Maliki, who doesn’t want us, or to the votes of the American people. So, now, I think it’s time for Americans to stand up,” he said.

Then a voice called out from the attentive crowd: “We did, Ned, with you,” followed by rousing applause.



You shoulda been there. It was awesome. The video is below, but in order to have the full Connecticut Bob experience, I suggest that you go outside with your favorite libation and stare directly into the sun:

    OK, fine, I get it! The light was too goddamned bright! Jesus! What a bunch of crybabies.

    Like a tiny bit of permanent retinal damage is a BAD thing!

    Just because you post your drivel doesn’t make you better than anyone else.
