On message

You really have to admire the message discipline of the Democrats. One of Dodd’s potential opponents is Linda McMahon, former head of the World Wrestling outfit. Connecticut Democrats have been attacking her, making what is a quite accurate charge that it is not the PG family friendly entertainment that she claims it to be. Unless, […]

Olbermann exposes the liberal media

The news is too depressing. I can’t bring myself to emit yet another rant against the weak, helpless, impotent, inadequate, incapable, ineffectual Democrats who “control” the United States Senate. If they had sat down in April and tried to figure out a way to simultaneously wreck the Health Care system (even more than it already […]

It ain’t so about Joe

There has been much weeping and gnashing of teeth about Joe Lieberman, with many trying to divine the reason for his health care obstructionism. Steve Benen at the Washington Monthly, points us to a new theory: There’s been ample speculation about what motivates Lieberman, and what compels him to be so profoundly annoying. My hunch […]

The Europeans are ahead of us again

It is somewhat heartening that our European friends, they of the socialistic health care systems and reasonably contented populaces, have begun moving toward something I’ve been advocating for years: taxing the income of certain non-productive elements of our society, i.e., the bonuses of the bankers who have been systematically destroying our society. Britain is imposing […]

Upcoming nuptials

This holiday season has seriously cut in to my blogging time, no doubt to the relief of many. Yesterday, my wife and I hosted an event sponsored by the Groton Federation of Democratic Women. Some Democratic men showed up as well, though I am somewhat reluctant to admit we segregated ourselves into a separate room […]

Dodd sets the record straight

I’m not sure what I think of this. Part of me agrees that, as Dodd says, we should set the records straight. The other part of me feels that it’s a fools errand to even respond to the Republicans patently absurd claims that they have been shut out of the health care process. In fact, […]

A mystery-unsolved, at least by me

According to this morning’s Day, McDonald’s sales are slumping. Now, don’t get me wrong. This is a good thing. I don’t expect to die happy, but I will die at least slightly contented if McDonald’s predeceases me. Still, there’s something about this story that mystifies me. Here is the reason McDonald’s is doing poorly: “I […]

Some great rock and roll

I am basically taking the night off, this being the first day in a while when there is no where I have to go and nothing I have to do. Now that I’m finished with work that is. By way of recompense, or added reward, depending on the way you look at it, let me […]

Ned Lamont in Stonington

Just returned from the Ned Lamont meet and greet in Stonington. Quite a crowd turned out to hear Ned’s thoughts on what ails the state. Below, Ned with various Drinking Liberally regulars. I’m still undecided, but I have to admit I feel a lot of affection for Ned. I also feel we owe him some […]

Too true

Joe made a big mistake abandoning his makeshift little party. Of course, Joe has a habit of abandoning people and things after he no longer needs them.
