Another Dem Bites the Dust
Good riddance to bad rubbish! Senator Chris Dodd, the doddering buffoon from Connecticut, is announcing his “retirement” according to the Washington Post. Retirement, of course, being political code for “I totally suck and can’t even buy my way out of this one.”
Embattled Connecticut Sen. Chris Dodd (D) has scheduled a press conference at his home in Connecticut Wednesday at which he is expected to announce he will not seek re-election, according to sources familiar with his plans.
Dodd’s retirement comes after months of speculation about his political future, and amid faltering polling numbers and a growing sense among the Democratic establishment that he could not win a sixth term. It also comes less than 24 hours after Sen. Byron Dorgan (D-N.D.) announced he would not seek re-election.
The next election cycle is looking better and better already. I’m so glad I kicked 2009 to the curb (just not that into him) and set my sights on 2010. Not only does he have a nicer car, but he seems to be ready to kick some Democrat ass.
Funny how a rag-tag bunch of ordinary citizens, all while being ridiculed and demeaned by those whom consider themselves Smarter Than Us are having such an impact, huh? The Democrats are throwing themselves overboard, rather than fighting us for a life boat! The fact that the latest casualty is Senator Dodd just makes it all the sweeter.
I first paid attention to Dodd during the primaries last Presidential election and then only to totally make fun of him because he was so pathetic. Dude, he moved his entire family to Iowa and was STILL in single digits. I think he left the race at ONE percentage point (snicker). I suppose his poor performance was understandable, though. Apparently, he was far too busy kedoodling Mortgage Company executives for sweetheart deals. Oh, and screwing up the ENTIRE ECONOMY with his Fannie Mae/Freddie Mac stuff. (OK, I know SOME of it isn’t due solely to the “mortgage crisis”, but the rest of it is far too Economics-y and complicated for me – just as it is for our President, evidently.)
I don’t think he’s “retiring” out of any sense of shame for the damage he has done to this Country, however. I’m pretty sure he’s simply giving up because being a Senator isn’t that much fun for him any longer, having lost hisWaitress Sammich partner and all. (too soon? Nah.)
So, anyway, I just have this to say to Senator Dodd tomorrow:
Na na na na, hey, hey, hey Good-bye.
