Nutroots: Hey, That Schlesinger Guy Is Pretty Sharp!

The Lefty bloggers are all gushing over CT Republican Senate candidate Alan Schlesinger after yesterday's debate with Ned Lamont and Joe Lieberman.

Man, how sad is that? They see their guy floundering because he can't gain traction with any voter who isn't on board with the nutroots and Republicans are rallying behind Joe.

So they figure, hey, if they can just convince CT Republicans that this Schlesinger guy is the bee's knees then maybe they'll vote for him even though he hasn't a snowball's chance in hell of winning. Because unless Republicans (and Republican-leaning Independents) drop their steadfast support for Lieberman it's Ned Lamont who doesn't have a snowball's chance.

Ace puts it this way:

Connecticut Republican voters -- go out there and vote for Schlesinger! Because Jane Hamsher told you to, and you're as retarded as she thinks you are!
Gee, Jane. You've opened my eyes! Why vote for Joe Lieberman when we have a perfectly good Republican in the race? What was I thinking? Jeez.

Nice try, sweetheart.

Now, what else have you got?

Heh.

UPDATE:
Dean Barnett muses about this silliness:

Perhaps the Nutroots have turned over a new leaf and henceforth will practice a more civil form of political warfare. Either that, or they think simple-minded Republicans will be gulled into supporting Schlesinger because heÂ’s winning rave reviews from the left wing blogosphere.

Markos, please listen to me – I know you think yourself a kingmaker, but Republicans really don’t care what you think.

Tell you what, guys. If you like Schlesinger so much, you vote for him.

Heh.
