Ned Lamont Takes on Stephen Colbert



Ned Lamont did a great job on the Colbert Report last night, even getting thunderous applause with this line:

I think George Bush is driving this country into a ditch and if Joe Lieberman won't challenge him, I will. I think it's time the Democrats stand up and propose a real alternative.
The Hartford Courant reports on some of his memorable responses and the backstage goings on:

The audience again burst into applause. In the green room, Hillsman said the moment suggested Jimmy Stewart, a reference to the Stewart movie, "Mr. Smith Goes to Washington."A Colbert staffer nodded.
After his appearance, people approached to congratulate him:

"You did a great job. He can be tough," she said.

"Lieberman is terrible," said a bearded young man.

"Can I get your picture?" asked another young man.
The audience, like the voters of Connecticut, sure approve of his message.
