Simmons outraised Dodd in 3Q.
970K for Simmons; 900K for Dodd. Please also note that Dodd’s spokesman carefully did not mention his candidate’s cash-on-hand while making excuses for Dodd’s lackluster third quarter, which suggests that the lobbyist crony* is having problems on that front, too. Couple that with his ongoing Countrywide problem, and one has to wonder what the next set of polls will look like… Moe Lane PS: Rob | Read More »
‘You almost have to feel sorry’ for Chris Dodd (D-CT).
Here’s a brief intelligence test. Question: If you are a Senator who has spent the last week bashing lobbyists in a desperate attempt to look like a populist, would you or would you not attend an elitist DSCC retreat designed to put Democratic politicians and K Street checkbooks in the same room? If the answer is “you would not attend,” congratulations: you’re smarter than Chris | Read More »
Dodd upset over questions about wife’s conflict of interest.
There are times when you don’t need to go past the title and subtitle: Dodd Says Questions About Wife’s Role in Health Care Industry ‘Offensive’ Sen. Chris Dodd, D-Conn., whose wife Jackie Clegg Dodd sits on the boards of four health care companies, disputes the suggestion that his wife’s career could pose a conflict of interest. It really does say it all, doesn’t it? We’re | Read More »
Chris Dodd (D-CT) thinks that you’re all a bunch of Nazis.
Because you can tell the difference between pouring water on a towel held over the mouth of three separate individuals (and under very carefully controlled conditions), and sending 17 million people to the gas chamber*. (H/T: Melissa Clouthier) But, do you know something? Don’t get mad. Get even. More here. Moe Lane *For the record: this comment does not mean that I deny you your | Read More »
A special St. Patrick’s Day message for Dodd, from the NRSC.
It takes a lot for me to admit to the existence of St. Patrick’s Day; like virtually everybody else who can legitimately claim full-blooded Irish descent (15/16ths, in my case), I despise this holiday. Drunken non-Celtic buffoons with bad accents vomiting all over the place doesn’t appeal*. So, it requires something special to get me to even acknowledge the iconography. This’ll do:
The first step in Lieberman’s reunion with the Democrats.
Not that he was ever really gone, but the formalities must be observed. Senate Majority Whip Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) said running as a Democrat is up to Lieberman, noting he has not yet had any talks with him about doing so. But Durbin said Lieberman this year has lived up to his promise to be a loyal and reliable vote on Democratic priorities. “I will | Read More »
Democrats attempt to take control of Connecticut Catholic Church.
Chris Dodd must be annoying people all over Connecticut. The paper didn’t even try to hide political affiliations for this one: After a priest stole $1.4 million from a church in Darien, state legislators have proposed a law that would regulate how parishes are controlled and operated. The state’s Catholic bishops rallied opposition from the pulpits at weekend Masses. The law essentially would strip the | Read More »
What, *another* ACORN voter fraud event?
The latest report on the Democrat-allied activist group comes from Connecticut. Nice to know that they’re branching out past the battlefield states: HARTFORD — The State Elections Enforcement Commission has opened an investigation into allegations that a community activist organization submitted at least 10 false voter-registration cards in Bridgeport. One of the phony registrations was for a 7-year-old girl in the Marina Village housing complex, | Read More »
