Lanny's Friends

By now we're all used to elite Washington insiders picking random comments on the internets and attributing them to unnamed "bloggers," so Lanny Davis's latest version of that in the WSJ editorial page - the Democrats' best friend - is no surprise. I was somewhat surprised by this however.

A friend of mine just returned from Connecticut, where he had spoken on several occasions on behalf of Joe Lieberman. He happens to be a liberal antiwar Democrat, just as I am. He is also a lawyer. He told me that within a day of a Lamont event--where he asked the candidate some critical questions--some of his clients were blitzed with emails attacking him and threatening boycotts of their products if they did not drop him as their attorney. He has actually decided not to return to Connecticut for the primary today; he is fearful for his physical safety.

Dollars to donuts he's talking about our friend Richard Goodstein who spent his time disrupting events, not asking critical questions.

It's nice to know just how dishonest "our" players can be. Lessons learned.
