Thank you Rand Paul and Dick Blumenthal. As if 2010 wasn't an exciting enough election year for political junkies like me, you two sideshows leaped onto the national stage for our entertainment pleasure.
The Connecticut Democratic Party Convention starts tonight, and some within the party are trying to keep Connecticut voters from having a choice in the election by blocking U.S. Senate candidate Merrick Alpert from addressing the delegates.
"I meant to say that I was a veterinarian, not a veteran," Blumenthal told a press conference in Hartford. "I left off the last three syllables to conserve time, so I could go back to work for the people of Connecticut."
