Rats Off A Ship

Christopher Dodd, the would be King who built his personal treasure through shameless political reciprocity and the invention of an impenetrable shell-like hair varnish, is the latest democrat incumbent to volunteer for the private sector. His announcement followed that of Byron Dorgan's by one day.

Dodd was vulnerable as a candidate in progressive Connecticut, a state that has little problem with proportionate scandals. However, Dodd's involvement with Countrywide Mortgage as well as his poorly timed endorsement of Fanny and Freddie just prior to their collapses, made him a bit too embarrassing even for Connecticut voters.

The move by Dodd will make it much more difficult for Republicans to pick up the senate seat.
