I knew there was something skeezy about this guy:
At a ceremony honoring veterans and senior citizens who sent presents to soldiers overseas, Attorney General Richard Blumenthal of Connecticut rose and spoke of an earlier time in his life.
â€œWe have learned something important since the days that I served in Vietnam,â€ Mr. Blumenthal said to the group gathered in Norwalk in March 2008. â€œAnd you exemplify it. Whatever we think about the war, whatever we call it â€” Afghanistan or Iraq â€” we owe our military men and women unconditional support.â€
There was one problem: Mr. Blumenthal, a Democrat now running for the United States Senate, never served in Vietnam.
Whenever I see people falling all over someone like that, and I’ve seen precisely that with this guy, I know something’s up. A need to be conned meets the need to con, yes, but in a case like this there’s something more.
Now, let’s see if the madness of crowds rewards him with a seat in the Senate. He is, after all, a Democrat, and so until he’s caught in bed with a dead horse or a live sea lion (have I even gone far enough?), he can basically do anything and Democratic voters will approve, except possibly if he says that he watches Fox News. That would disqualify him.
