Video: Mr. Nutroots Goes to Washington

posted at 8:07 pm on November 2, 2006 by Allahpundit

Like Jeff Smith, Lamont’s got his own legion of Boy Rangers. Except instead of printing newspapers, they photoshop blackface onto Joe Lieberman and accuse him of being pro-rape.

Aside from that, though, the analogy’s perfect.

Well, that, and the $150 million difference in net worth.

Hey, remember during the big scene at the end when Mr. Smith said he wanted peace with the Nazis?

Hey Freshmaker, heck no! What a dweeb.

thedecider on November 2, 2006 at 8:10 PM

Fantastic.

I can’t wait until Lamont loses and Kos’ endorsement/victory record is 0 for a zillion.

Now if we can only get Kos to endorse Hillary in ’08.

Another reason to hate Jimmie Stewart and Frank Capra. At least it wasn’t, “It’s a wonderful life”.

“Every time a bell rings, a republican gets elected…”

E L Frederick on November 2, 2006 at 8:16 PM

Another difference: Jeff Smith won.

Alex K on November 2, 2006 at 8:19 PM

Should a political ad really make you think, “what a dweeb”?

lorien1973 on November 2, 2006 at 8:19 PM

Ned Lamont ” I paid the nutroots over 100 million dollars, and all I got was this crappy t-shirt”

sonnyspats1 on November 2, 2006 at 8:20 PM

“I’m Ned Lamont and I’m a big dork.”

CP on November 2, 2006 at 8:21 PM

nice commercial, I’m a big fan of Frank Capra

Defector01 on November 2, 2006 at 8:32 PM

Ya know I really like Jimmy Stewart. That ad was just,I don’t know, sacrilegious or something.

vcferlita on November 2, 2006 at 8:43 PM

So folks should vote for him because he can fantasize about making speeches to a room full of fictional characters. The possibilities are endless…

So is this the political equivalent of air guitar?

LB - the one that isn't LaShawn Barber on November 2, 2006 at 8:45 PM

1- Note how Kos lost his job.
2- Well, okay, I’m still stuck on the fact that he dumped Kos and the nutroots!

Pam on November 2, 2006 at 8:49 PM

That guy reminds me of a museum exhibit of early human artifacts:

He’s a wooden tool.

Phil Smith on November 2, 2006 at 8:51 PM

Perfect analogy of liberals – stuck in the past, creating make believe for their masses. By the way, I liked Mel Gibson’s version better in the Simpson’s.

jeffNWV on November 2, 2006 at 8:54 PM

Taking the Democrat Part in a gnu direction.

Over the cliff, into the river, crocs awaiting with mouths wide open. Come on guys, follow me!

fogw on November 2, 2006 at 9:03 PM

Great ad! Very creative! Thankfully however, this man will NOT be elected.

asc85 on November 2, 2006 at 9:12 PM

When they show Lamont flying a B-17 over Tehran and dropping cluster bombs…..THEN I’ll vote for him…..
Jimmy Stewart would have dropped this guy out the waist gunners window with a big yellow bow tied to his ass.

Limerick on November 2, 2006 at 9:13 PM

Exactly right, asc85.

EFG on November 2, 2006 at 9:15 PM

Am I wrong or did he look like Pee-Wee Herman in this clip?

Limerick on November 2, 2006 at 9:16 PM

Needs more cowbell.

EnochCain on November 2, 2006 at 9:25 PM

I’m Ned Lament, and I paid for this botched joke.

JammieWearingFool on November 2, 2006 at 9:30 PM

“I’m Ned Lamont and I’m a walking cock.”

Free Kurdistan on November 2, 2006 at 9:31 PM

sorry, that was kinda harsh. :(

Free Kurdistan on November 2, 2006 at 9:36 PM

Between the “wooden tool” (Phil Smith) and the “Cow Bell” (EnochCain) I’m in tears again.

Oh, and Jimmy Stewart would kick Lamont’s ass if he were alive. Imagine it…I am. *big smile*

This is a list of Hollywood actors who joined the military and fought in WW2. In the war on terror….there are ZERO.

Limerick on November 2, 2006 at 9:44 PM

I think Lamont is a moron, but I have to give his campaign props for this ad… it was great, and he actually looked the part. Of course, we know better….

DaveS on November 2, 2006 at 9:48 PM

Limerick, you gotta give kudos to Bruce Willis. He tried to volunteer but they told him he was too old, if I recall. Now he’s trying to get a movie made based on what Michael Yon reported.

DaveS on November 2, 2006 at 9:49 PM

I do…..Willis, Sinese, Keith, Tillman…..I know we have patriots….but gees….look at who is at the nutroot parties…..how many movies would Sean Penn have made in 45, or 53?

Limerick on November 2, 2006 at 10:11 PM

Sinese took time out to sit and talk with my son in Iraq for about an hour. Keith drove in one day like he wasn’t scared at all and gave them all a show.

Limerick on November 2, 2006 at 10:14 PM

I think that Brigader General James Stewart, U.S. Army Air Corps, would be appalled at this advertisement. Jimmy Stewart was a great, patriotic American. I can’t say the same for Ned Lamont.

DAT60A3 on November 2, 2006 at 10:16 PM

“I’m Ned Lamont and I’m one of the biggest dick-heads that ever ran for office.”

auspatriotman on November 2, 2006 at 10:32 PM

Lamont reminds me of Burt Ward from the classic Batman series more than anyone else.

Typewriter King on November 2, 2006 at 10:52 PM

Amazing what kind of video gee-whizzery you can buy for $12.7 million.
You might think for $12.7 million, a liberal Democrat could get elected in a liberal Democrat state — but Ned Lamont’s working hard to prove you wrong!

“I’m Ned Lamont and I’m a big tiny dork.”

CP on November 2, 2006 at 8:21 PM

Fixed it for ya CP – hope you don’t mind :)

No matter what will happen on Tuesday, I will drink two glasses of champagne (figuratively, ’cause I’m on a business trip): one for the loss of Ned Lamont and the other for Phil Angelides. These two little twits have been incredibly annoying throughout this campaign.

Entelechy on November 3, 2006 at 12:20 AM

I think this is really Greg Kinnear playing a candidate. pass the popcorn.

Texyank on November 3, 2006 at 12:58 AM

Is there any chance that the Lamont loss will be seen as a repudiation by the American people of Democrat/Leftist thought at least as much as conservative thought? When there is a legitimate alternative to Democrats people will jump on it–and in the middle of an alleged “blue wave” no less.

urbancenturion on November 3, 2006 at 1:00 AM

I find it interesting that they did not add any racial diversity to the Senate gallery. Lamont should have used footage from Billy Jack Goes to Washington. He could have had the kids from the Freedom School cheering him on.

rw on November 3, 2006 at 2:39 AM

That kid is in so far over his head.

Lazarus on November 3, 2006 at 2:53 AM

Am I the only one who found it creepy that Ned Lamont’s head and a gallery full of dead people heartily approved his message?

Sean M. on November 3, 2006 at 3:19 AM

Good grief.I’m sure that is his idea of the current senate. No women, no people “of color” and the need for a young, innocent, country nut root.

Hening on November 3, 2006 at 7:15 AM

Ah…

Better living through chemistry…

Corky on November 3, 2006 at 9:07 AM

I didn’t think it was possible for Lamont to look even dorkier, but I was wrong.

MoxArgon on November 3, 2006 at 9:51 AM

Limerick, a while back I read that Bruce Willis waltzed into a recruiters office after 9/11 but was turned back due to his age. Think I read it Here.

Lamont is a sick sick man, he doesn’t hold a candle up to a fictional movie character.
