Mr. Tom Foley, once a Republican Party choice for governor, is being touted as a “class act” by the same people who, a few days earlier, insisted he was a millionaire grim reaper who had destroyed a small town – Bib something or other -- and eaten all of its children.
In an apparent compliment, Mr. Rick Green of the Hartford Courant calls Mr. Foley’s long anticipated departure from the race “eloquent,” though not quite as eloquent as Governor-elect Dan Malloy’s victory.
And all that muck in Bridgeport? Forgetaboutit!!! says Mr. Green. Some muckrakers rake, and other shove the stuff under the rug.
If only “the grassy knoll conspriracy (sic) theorists” who want to plum the Bridgeport mess would follow suit, Mr. Green would happily call them eloquent too, an odd posture for the muckraking proprietor of “CT Confidential: What’s Really Happening” to strike.
