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."
Politics doesn't have many rules. You can get away with just about anything. Being a hypocrite usually does you in. As does, and I think Richard Blumenthal will get to this eventually, claiming to have a fought a war you didn't actually fight in.
