If you have "no place to go," come here!

Dodd: "I don't want to bother you over the holidays...."

Now, that's a man who has the ask totally mastered!

500,000 calls...

"Thanks, Happy Holidays*, the best gift you could have given this country. Finally, finally we shut the door on these guys, at least for a few weeks."

NOTE * Hey, he included me!

NOTE And it was especially gracious of Dodd not to mention that the "support" from HRC, Obama, and Biden meant about as much as a bucket of warm spit.

gosh, that was gooood. he likes us, he really like us!

ok, i'm trying to be funny here- because it's so surrea and unexpectedl to hear a pol talking about intelligent people and active, participating citizens as if we were a good thing. i can't remember the last time i heard such. anyway, doddmania continues; i bet i'm not the only one replaying a bunch of the highlights of our first victory in the War to Preserve American Constitutional Democracy in some time. they're so rare, no wonder i want to relive them for a few days after.

"let's work to build up a majority." well, technically, they already are a "majority." he's admitting that people like lieberman and other "conservative democrats" are essentially the democratic wing of the republican caucus.

i think that evil wizard from the potter books puts a spell on their lips when they enter the senate chamber for the first time; they can't say "focused and strategically specific primary challenges," but he came close. we say it all the time, "we" progressives don't have anything remotely resembling a majority. dodd is letting on the fact that he understands this, and i thank him for showing us he doesn't think we're complete rubes.
