· And now it's personal: PJ Media's Roger Simon has an interview with Joe Lieberman (not at the link yet, I guess they're still editing the video) that scored a Drudge link and crashed the site for awhile. This has the Lamont people hoppin' mad:

Joe Lieberman’s initial public foray into the blogosphere comes in the form of an exclusive interview with the right wing ideologues behind the miserably-failing-despite-the-hype “Pajamas Media.”...

Ouch. I wonder if "miserable failure" will lose to "beaten by an independent" in a Googlefight a couple months from now. We shall see...

· The big news of the day is, of course, the new Quinnipiac Poll that shows Lieberman leading Lamont by 10 points among likely voters

...Lieberman, a three-term Democrat running as an independent after losing the party nomination in a primary, is favored by 49 percent to 39 percent over Lamont in the three-way race. Republican Alan Schlesinger trails with 5 percent.

The race has tightened slightly since an Aug. 17 poll that showed Lieberman leading 53 percent to 41 percent...

Some interesting numbers here:

...The Quinnipiac poll showed that Lieberman has higher favorability ratings among likely voters, 51 percent to Lamont's 31 percent. While Lamont has slightly higher favorability numbers among Democrats (47 percent to 43 percent), Lieberman far outdistances his challenger among likely Republican and unaffiliated voters. Seventy percent of Republicans view Lieberman favorably compared to 12 percent for Lamont, and 48 percent of independent voters view Lieberman favorably compared to 30 percent for Lamont.

Unaffiliated voters outnumber Democrats and Republicans in the state.

"Lamont wins among those who say Iraq is the most important issue to their vote, but that is only 35 percent of the electorate," Schwartz said. "Lieberman wins on all the other issues voters say matter most to them, including terrorism and the economy...

· Joe has gotten a nice boost here: 50 former Congressmen, Senators, Clinton vets launch 'Dems for Joe' Lieberman

...founding members include former Sens. David Boren (Okla.), Bob Kerrey (Neb.), John Breaux (La.) and Dennis DeConcini (Ariz.); former Reps. Mel Levine (Calif.) and Leon Panetta (Calif.), who served as chief of staff to President Bill Clinton; former Clinton Agriculture Secretary and former Rep. Mike Espy (Miss.); and former Clinton CIA Director James Woolsey...

Meanwhile, the Lamont blog is touting its own endorsements from Mark Warner and Wesley Clark, as well as People For the American Way.

· Finally, readers may be interested in this interview with Ned Lamont appearing in the Jewish Ledger. Some of the more interesting questions they ask: "Where did you stand in terms of Israel and its conflict with Hezbollah in Lebanon? Do you think we should be negotiating with them and with Hamas? -- Two people who did not support Israel during the recent conflict were Reps. Maxine Waters and Marcy Kaptur. Both declined to back a House resolution denouncing Hezbollah and its terrorist actions against Israel. During the conflict, these women came to the state to campaign with you. What do you say to Jewish voters who, as a result, question your support for Israel? -- Along the same lines, Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton - who have had a rather contentious relationship with the Jewish community over the years - campaigned for you very prominently during the primary. What would you say to those who question your relationship with the Jewish community because of this?"

You can read the answers in the full interview, here.
