Courant Buries Palin Exoneration



The report on the ethics probe exonerating Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin of any ethical wrongdoing in the so-called “troopergate” investigation was tucked away inconspicuously in the Hartford Courant.

The paper's front page on Election Day was devoted to a bidding made by a company that had been implicated in the ancient Rowland scandal, which occurred several years ago.

On the Courant internet site, the brief unadorned story was accompanied by an advertising box asking, “Is Sarah Palin Dumb?”

Verily, the age of Obama is upon us.

No doubt the Courant burried the story because it did not wish to disturb Bill Curry and other of its columnist who gave such play to the politically motivated story on the day of the election.

The paper has endorsed Obama as president.

Not a good day for the progressive Palin hunters at the Courant, Colin McEnroe among them, though they can consol themselves by reflecting that the report exonerating Palin will not be seen by those who have been exposed to their fanciful imaginings.

MCENROE is a bright guy, and entertaining, but hard to listen to when making excuses for Obama when he asked the two muslim women to be excused from the photo op.

Go Tom Scott and Ryan!

The Blumenthal Burisma Connection

Steve Hilton, a Fox News commentator who over the weekend had connected some Burisma corruption dots, had this to say about Connecticut U.S. Senator Dick Blumenthal’s association with the tangled knot of corruption in Ukraine: “We cross-referenced the Senate co-sponsors of Ed Markey's Ukraine gas bill with the list of Democrats whom Burisma lobbyist, David Leiter, routinely gave money to and found another one -- one of the most sanctimonious of them all, actually -- Sen. Richard Blumenthal."

Dave Walker, Turning Around The Misery Index

Dave Walker, who is running for Lieutenant Governor on the Republican Party ticket, is recognized by most credible political observers as perhaps the most over qualified candidate for Lieutenant Governor in state history.
He is a member of the Accounting Hall of Fame and for ten years was the Comptroller General of the United States. When Mr. Walker talks about budgets, financing and pension viability, people listen.
Mr. Walker is also attuned to fine nuances in political campaigning. He is not running for governor, he says, because he had moved to Connecticut only four years ago and wishes to respect the political pecking order. Very few people in the state think that, were he governor, Mr. Walker would know less about the finance side of government than his budget chief.

Murphy Stumbles

U.S. Senator Chris Murphy has been roughly cuffed by some news outlets, but not by Vox, which published on April 16 a worshipful article on Connecticut’s Junior Senator, “The Senator of State: How Connecticut’s Chris Murphy, a rising Democratic star, would run the world.”
On April 15, The Federalist mentioned Murphy in an article entitled “Sen. Chris Murphy: China And The World Health Organization Did Nothing Wrong. The lede was a blow to Murphy’s solar plexus: “Democratic Connecticut Sen. Chris Murphy exonerated China of any wrongdoing over the global pandemic stemming from the novel Wuhan coronavirus on Tuesday.
“’The reason that we’re in the crisis that we are today is not because of anything that China did, is not because of anything the WHO [World Health Organization] did,’ said Murphy during a prime-time interview with CNN’s Anderson Cooper.”
