Kos in Ned Lamont Senate Ads
Markos Moulitsas Zuniga, the proprietor of DailyKos, is seen in ads for Ned Lamont, who is running against Joe Lieberman in the Democratic primaries. Presumably, he is meant to represent the “netroots.” While I’m clearly not the target demographic, I find them rather strange and am not sure why they would motivate someone on the fence to get off the Joementum bandwagon.
Jim Geraghty observes that, “It seems to me to be a form of a Public Service Announcement, warning that if you run against a hawkish Democrat, Markos Moulitsas and his Daily Kos band will break into your house and surround you with a creepy, not-quite-right enthusiasm.”

The Lamont campaign implores:
Please forward these ads to your friends. The success of the campaign depends on our ability to spread messages like these virally to friends, family and networks both online and offline.
It’s the least I can do!
What would the launch of a blog be, without a bug? Comments are buggy… thanks for the emails, working on ’em and they’ll be back.
That’s the can-do amateur spirit!
