I think it’s safe to say the race is over:

Sen. Joe Lieberman has built a 17-point lead over Democratic challenger Ned Lamont, according to the first Quinnipiac University poll since the two faced off in a debate this week.

Lieberman, running as an independent after losing the Aug. 8 Democratic primary to Lamont, leads the Greenwich businessman 52 percent to 35 percent among Connecticut likely voters in the poll released Friday. Republican Alan Schlesinger trailed with 6 percent, and 7 percent were undecided.

I’ll ask again: where are the nutroots now?

Lamont propaganda artist and Hollyweirdo Jame Hamsher is getting desperate; she’s praising the Republican opponent now.
