More on Lanny Davis’ pro-Lieberman performance on CSPAN over at Kos, written by one of the callers to the program.

I watched just enough of the Lieberman-Lamont debate and Davis’ CSPAN appearance to pick up on the Lieberman campaign’s new theme that you just can’t rely on Lamont because he’s all over the place on a withdrawal plan for Iraq.

I don’t know whether that’s an accurate criticism of Lamont (I suspect it’s not), but it doesn’t strike me as a winning formula for Lieberman: you can’t trust this guy to fix the problem I created.

If you need help getting your car out of a ditch, would you turn to the guy who just drove it in there or to the stranger who stops to help?

Update: Score one for TPM Reader AS: “That might sound logical, but that strategy worked for Bush in his reelection!”
