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.”
-- Daniel Kish, a senior adviser to Pombo, in an email
In fairness, he was upset over a Connecticut editorial that was opposed to ANWR drilling. You know how irritating that can be.

Well, as a Connecticut resident and registered voter, it is almost enough to motivate me to move to California just to vote against him! Even if it was just 'teasing' as reported by the Roll Call “You caught me in my ongoing ribbing of Andrew Whelan, who was born and raised in Connecticut and works in our press shop,” Kish wrote in an e-mail to HOH. “He’s a great, smart and talented guy who understands the link between economic progress and access to energy supplies, and gives back as good as he takes it. I always tell him the country doesn’t run on nutmeg.” ( for the full article.)

As it is, I'll have to be content to vote for Ned Lamont at the primary (and at the general election!) and Joe Courtney.
