Old friend Chris Dodd is not running for re-election. Surely he knows something we do not. No way he does not run unless he is positive of a Republican victory. This man has escaped a half dozen of the most impeachable offenses ever to become known in this country's history. How ? From taking 5,000 checks from Buddhist monks as co-chair of the DNC in '96, to waitress sandwiches with Teddy Chappaquiddick to the Banking scandels. His fingerprints are all over everything Freddie and Fannie, and Franklin Raines is singing like a songbird from what I hear.
Teddy's dead - as dead as the entire Kennedy name in Martha's Vineyard. I suspect now that Uncle Walters gone as well, the eviction notices should start to roll in when Caroline's book bombs.
Just five minutes ago, the newsflash pops up on FOX - OLYMPIA SNOWE IS NOT RUNNING NEXT FALL ! The bas news is getting any person with an R beside therir name elected. Things are a changin' in Maine however, and I have hope for the first time in a while.
Collins isn't really all that bad if one looks at the circumstances she is always placed in. She plays ball with Dirty Harry or gets no soup for her constituents. She was re-elected two years ago, and would be much more conservative with the right team backing her. I know her family personally, as they run a hardware store just a few miles from where I grew up. It has been in the family for several generations.
Bawney's gone in the House. Now he is free to spend all his time helping out running the pimpmobile out of his basement for little boys. Both Barney and Chris are now eligible for prosecution after their last day in office. Food for thought !
I believe New Jersey will also be searching for a new candidate for the Lout's seat. Is Torricelli free yet ? The average tenure and age for the Democrats in the senate is approaching dust bowl comparisons. 26 seats up for grabs for them versus 12 for the Republicans. With the country about over the edge, I feel good about our chances. Snowe is a Goddess in Southern Maine, and could be elected for life. She knows what Chris knows. She knows what Dirty Harry knows. How must he feel,, after the way he has ran roughshod over the Republicans since '06 ?
I think I will have a cocktail before supper tonight and ponder what is in our future. The good stuff tonight ! Tonight is top shelf news !
