Ned Lamont has won the primary in Connecticut. This is not just a victory for the "netroots" and "people powered politics."

Tonight's result reflects an increasingly popular desire for the return of accountability. For the return of sanity.

Entrenched power has been asked to make way for those that intend to represent the people. This is democracy at its finest.

The door has been opened and notice has been served to those who have long overstayed their welcome.

And if they won't go quietly into that good night, we may just have to throw the bums out.

Congratulations to the people of Connecticut, those that worked so hard for Ned Lamont and for members of the "reality based community" everywhere.

There is a long road still ahead but tonight...
