Death Watch?

Finally, after weeks of hyperventilating, it’s the last day of what the New York Times today calls a “death watch” for reporters assigned to Joe Lieberman.

It’s all gotten a little silly, with the tone of the coverage veering with neck-breaking sharpness between last week – when a poll showed Lieberman trailing Ned Lamont by 13 points – and this week, with the gap most recently measured at six.

Surge or meaningless statistical anomaly?

You decide.
