54. Yes and I also would have preferred Lamont to win over Lieberman
Do I think she used good judgment trying to show Lieberman was kissing up to black voters? No. Do I think she was overzealous about her candidate? Yes. Do I think she was thoughtless..Yes. Do I think she intended to offend black voters? No...because that certainly wouldn't have helped her candidate. Did she apologize? Yes. That's something I have never seen Andrew Sullivan do when quoting from the "The Bell Curve".

But if that isn't enough...her candidate Lamont lost. I can think of no greater punishment for her offense. We are now stuck with Joe Lieberman.
