Some Republicans have been griping about Shays's endorsement of Lieberman: Ex-Donkey Blog calls him a "liberal weenie." I still think it's interesting that none of the big-name Republicans have recoiled in horror from this. Yet.
John McCain will stump for Rell at a pricey fundraiser later this month. McCain's a great choice: CT Republicans favored him over Bush in 2000, remember. I wonder if Rell would play some part in a McCain Administration, should one come to pass in 2009. A big victory this November would put her in the national Republican spotlight, for sure.
There is still trouble over the clean contracting bill, which has twice been vetoed because of anti-privatization language. Some of that language has been removed, but now Rell wants it all gone. Is there a reason why the privatization stuff has to be in this bill?
Lastly, the Navy, which has been forced to keep the Groton Sub Base open, will now commence bleeding it dry. Three of the subs stationed there will move to the west coast. One of them, irritatingly, is the USS Connecticut.
What else is going on, today?
