Foley, A Classy Loser

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.

Those same people who called Mr. Foley the Grim Reaper (now redeemed) are calling Secretary Bysiewicz equally horrible names and calling for her resignation. They don't seem to remember that they are the ones who had her the frontrunner in the Governor's race way back when. A fickle bunch, to say the least. Especially when they win.

So that's it?

The Democrats wait until all the votes are counted? Go into Hartford, New Haven, and Bridgeport and "find" the votes they need to steal the election and that's it???

Congratulations everybody we now live in a 3rd world country! Constitution? We don't need no stinking Constitution!

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.”
