Lazy Day Open Thread
Chris Bowers, in a MyDD post, has announced the results of polling done by MyDD and Courage Campaign to analyze the CA-50 special election results in the race between Brian Bilbray and Francine Busby for the seat vacated by convicted felon Randy “Duke” Cunningham. This story is full of fascinating bits and pieces for all of us who care about the effort to rid CA-11 of Richard Pombo, and I’d be interested to hear how SNTP readers think the information from this polling might apply to the Pombo-McNerney race.
Meanwhile, Jon Carroll of the SF Chron wrote a column yesterday that was a reflection on another Chris Bowers post (he’s everywhere!) that should be required reading for every candidate in the Democratic Party. He hits the nail squarely on the head.
Finally, for your daily dose of Pombo putridity, I’ll leave you with this gem from Jesse Lee over at the DCCC Stakeholder:
They're good people:“Connecticut should have its statehood taken away from it. The foolishness of its pampered residents should be demonstrated to others by a government program to bulldoze the entire state, salt the land and construct a windfarm to supply NYC with electricity. And its residents should be relocated to Guantanamo Bay where they can take a number behind the 3 who hung themselves this weekend, since they seem so intent on suicide.”In fairness, he was upset over a Connecticut editorial that was opposed to ANWR drilling. You know how irritating that can be.
