I count coup on Senator Chris Dodd (D-Countrywide).
False modesty be damned.
I do not claim the scalp – that honor is collectively shared by the VRWC as a whole – but by God I will count coup on the man. He’s going out the door, and he didn’t want to go, and his party’s leadership didn’t want him to go. He’s going because a lot of people – including myself – kept reminding the Connecticut electorate that Chris Dodd was a corrupt suckweasel of a Democrat; and while as a Republican I may be worse off with Richard Blumenthal entering the race, as an American I’m better off with Dodd leaving it.
So good job to everybody else who helped take Dodd down, too.
PS: So, who should be next on the list?
