Dodd Going Down
Just a quick update on the Man from AIG via Instapundit. He’s in deep trouble. At this point, it seems like one of those races where the GOP would almost be better off having him coast into certain defeat in November rather than having the Dems throw him under the bus in favor of a candidate who actually has a chance of winning. Even Gawker is ripping him.
“In other words, Chris Dodd is one of those terrible bastards who thinks his Senate seat is his birthright. “Every time I walk on the Senate floor, I feel that he’s vindicated,” Dodd once said of his father, because he is an entitled asshole.”
That’s pretty rough.
Gawker links to an exchange posted at The Hill’s blog with DSCC Chairman and overall New Jersey scumbag Robert Menendez, who claims:
Q: “Does the DSCC still support Chris whole-heartedly in light of these new numbers, and do they surprise you?”
Menendez: : “Are you serious? Chris Dodd is going to be re-elected. He’s a great senator.”
Q: “So the DSCC still supports him all the way?”
Of course, it’s quite possible this is just typical bluster before Dodd gets run over by a Vamoose charter. But we can always hope that Menendez and the Dems are as delusional as they sound about Dodd.
