The ad seems innocuous enough: Four Connecticut veterans appear on the screen to thank Sen. Joseph I. Lieberman for his support of the war in Iraq.
But Democratic Senate nominee Ned Lamont's campaign Wednesday compared the new television spot to the notorious "swift boat" ads that smeared John Kerry during the 2004 presidential campaign.
Let's see, the swift boat ads were about a bunch of vets saying bad things about John Kerry.
This ad is about a bunch of CT based vets saying good things about Joe Lieberman.
The TV spot features comments by Kyle Korab of Granby, Melissa Weaver of Colchester, Josh Clark of Willimantic and Mark Halle of Rocky Hill.
Unless the Courant somehow missed the mention of bad things about Lamont, this seems to be a case of the Lamont campaign trying to continue to endless summer attack of the Lieberman campaign. So much for trying to appear more moderate.
