The Journey to Crappertown

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.

“We have learned something important since the days that I served in Vietnam,” Mr. Blumenthal said to the group gathered in Norwalk in March 2008. “And you exemplify it. Whatever we think about the war, whatever we call it — Afghanistan or Iraq — we owe our military men and women unconditional support.”

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.
