That didn’t take long.
Dick Blumenthal, the 4th wealthiest member of the U.S Congress, has been dubbed “the most liberal member of the Senate,” according to a piece in CTMirror.
Connecticut's all Democratic House delegation ranks number 4 on the liberal meter, according to the National Journal.
By way of contrast, departed Senator Joe Lieberman was ranked 50th, which places him in what some editorial page editors amusingly call the “vital center” of American politics. That vital center has moved considerably to the left during the past two decades, and Democratic support for President Barack Obama’s quasi-socialist economic and social policies suggest a further progressive movement towards Eugene Deb’s political vision -- which will effectively turn the clock back to the 1912 presidential campaign.
