Just got a call from someone claiming to be from a company called "NCIS Research" or something very similar, about the Senate race. He told me to keep in mind that Joe Lieberman was "the only candidate to run against George Bush twice" and that he would be caucusing with the Democrats, etc. Basically, he ran through a long list of great things about Lieberman.
Then he asked whether I'd be voting for Ned Lamont or Joe Lieberman.
"Alan Schlesinger," I replied.
A beat. "I'm sorry?" the man on the other end said.
"Alan Schlesinger. The Republican candidate?"
"Oh, of course. Thank you."
Four more days.
