Ned Lamont is going to lose.
How do I know this? Because Stinky Stoller famously opined that candidates for office must run from racist blogs at all costs. And Ned Lamont, who all but employs a real racist -- the kind who thinks blackface is funny satire -- assuredly wants to get elected, right? I mean, sure, I believe him when he says that he has no idea about blogs, has never associated with them, and probably has no idea who all these people are following him around. Surely he'll take Stinky's sage, well-written advice, and drop Racist Hamster like there's no tomorrow.
But wait! Lamont is standing behind his woman! Why? I'd suggest that there are two alternatives, neither of which is mutually exclusive, both of which are probably true: The lefty netroots aren't ready for primetime, and no one cares, as Democrats are ok with racists anyway.
Stinky, by the way, fearless, pasty, smelly crusader against online racism, thinks that blackface is "edgy".
