A couple of Democratic candidates in the Connecticut governor’s race, Ned Lamont and Dan Malloy, are lobbing verbal grenades at each other over who is the more “outsider” in this political year of the outsider. (Or so the politicos tell me.)
Ned Lamont is the guy who upended Joe Lieberman in the 2006 Senate Democratic primary, but lost to Lieberman, running as an independent, in the general election. Malloy was the long-time mayor of Stamford.
Rick Green, blogging for the Hartford Courant, says Lamont and Malloy are having “hissy fits”: http://blogs.courant.com/rick_green/2010/02/governor-connecticut-ned-lamont-dan-malloy.html.
Brian Lockhart, blogging for the Stamford Advocate, says Lamont unloaded an “out-of-nowhere nuclear assault” on Malloy: http://blog.ctnews.com/politicalcapitol/.
Me? I just want to point out that Lamont — who, like Linda McMahon, lives in tony Greenwich — spent $16 million of his own money on his campaign four years ago. This year Linda is expected to spend $50 million.
And I have one of my off-the-beaten-path questions for Malloy, about how the Stamford police botched the investigation of the 19-year-old local college student who, on June 25, 2007, posted on Wikipedia that Chris Benoit’s wife was dead — 14 hours before the three family members’ bodies were found in a murder-suicide.
Breaking news about Linda McMahon and retard jokes diverted me from the conclusion of my blog series on the “Benoit Wikipedia Hacker,” which I will post in the near future. In the meantime, here are links to the first three parts of the series:
Mayor Malloy last year endorsed Governor Jodi Rell’s nomination of Linda McMahon to the state Board of Education. Now, Linda was manifestly qualified for that position, but I’m just sayin’….
I sent Malloy a postcard invitation to my March 25 reading at Borders in Stamford for CHRIS & NANCY: The True Story of the Benoit Murder-Suicide and Pro Wrestling’s Cocktail of Death. If Hizzoner responds, I’ll let y’all know.
