disinformation is out and about in connecticut

the national news are all a'gaga over word that lieberman has pretty much given up the ghost on his get out the vote plans.

too bad that doesn't seem to be the actual reality. jane "i'm comin' tho my head is hanging low" hamsher tells us at fdl:

except according to people on the street, that isn’t what’s happening. rather than take dictation from marion slimefels, we contacted folks who actually took the time to check out the claim. maura visited the stamford office for lieberman this morning, and has this to say:

i drove by the lieberoffice in stamford and even pulled into the parking lot to get a look at what’s going on, and it’s packed with liebershirted people. just as much or more activity than usual. i also passed two liebershirted people on a sidewalk in another neighborhood when i was driving to the dentist this morning, so i assume they’re still out strong canvassing.

it could be he’s considering stamford the last stand for lieberman, but it seems unlikely that he’d still have so much activity here and none anywhere else.
and in hartford, truebluect says:

i went to the new haven office this morning and i spied rosa delauro’s campaign manager — she loaned out her field people to joe for the race. and they know new haven better than anyone. the lieberman kids were running in and out, "give me new lists" — they give them a street at a time. they go, they do the street, they come back, thumbs up, they go do another street. i saw 50, 60, 70 people coming and going. they’re not rolling over.
this thing is not over, not by a longshot. the internal polling of both candidates says that the race is much closer than the q-poll indicates, and it’s all down to the ground game now. lieberman is trying to de-incentivize the lamont gotv effort with disinformation. if you care about a victory on tuesday, get yourself to connecticut.
jane goes on to say that it's a party goin' on out there in connecticut, so if you're within driving distance, get yourselves out there and have some fun while you do some work!
