Dick's Wife Joins Fray

How desperate is Attorney General Richard Blumenthal in his race for the Senate? Yesterday, he unveiled his wife, Cynthia, who wrote an email to supporters asking for money.

Waint a minute! She's got a million dollar in her checking account according to financial disclosure forms. The family is worth at least $60 million. What's she kicking in? I am as lilkely to click Paypal for this campaign as I am to declare I spent time in Vietnam.

I found the email odd. One of the things I had respected about Blumenthal is the privacy with which he has shrouded his family. Now he is throwing his wife into the, er, forgive the metaphor, front lines of the battle.

Oh, my. What has become of Dickie?

I believe that the state is a necessary fiction and that failing to combat it is the first step toward tyranny.
