Best Bloggers Evar!

It's been a hectic 24 hours for me. Coming home early yesterday evening to find this blog front-paged on a number of high-profile, national blogs was a bit of a shock. Unreal, even. My counter jumped from about 800 to over 10,000. Whoa!

Until yesterday, I was happily slogging along with maybe 10 or so hits a day. No pressure, nice and simple. And suddenly, BAM!!! I'm on Joe's radar. DeanFan84 is totally responsible for this, and thanks to him I fear I might have to flee the state if Ned doesn't win the primary!

(How's the sailing around San Diego? Many computer jobs there? Just askin'...)

Actually I'm very grateful to him, and to all the local Connecticut bloggers. In fact, I'm being terribly remiss by not mentioning all the wonderful Blogs here in Connecticut. The political scene here, wild as it is right now, is being covered by a group of terrific people. They're smart, concerned, and angry about what's been happening to our country.

These folks put in amazing amounts of time and effort to getting the word out about Ned Lamont. Most volunteer in other ways, too, by collecting signatures, attending events, shooting video and taking pictures, and button-holing Lieberman with questions any time he appears in public. I'm very lucky to have fallen in with this group of dedicated Democrats.

Give these blogs a visit, read their posts, and say Hi. And visit them often.

(And if I forget anyone, go easy on me, OK? Send me a note and I'll add your blog. I apologize in advance.)

...among others to be named as soon as I think of them.

And stay's the best way to keep your focus.

And what do you mean, might have to flee the state?

Bob, we are the Good Guys. We're patriots in so many people's book, just for actually standing up and insisting that the Democratic Party and its elected representatives stand for things, --good things.

Not often do you get a campaign like this. Right v. Wrong.

Let me state flatly, no matter who wins in August, Ned Lamont will go down in history as a brave hero. Someone who believed he could make a difference, and with the courage to try. And Joe Lieberman? Despite his Mr. Integrity act, he will be rembered as a typical, phony politician.

No, I do agree with's just I was saying that if Ned doesn't win, I'm gonna be on the hit list when the goon squads come looking for us. It's a joke, you see.

Bob -
I am one of the thousands who have been pointed to you via one of the bigger blogs (crooksandliars in my case) and all I can say is well done!

I'm probably different than the others who have come here in that I am a CT native and converted Ned-o-phile. I am currently in college down in NC, but I'm graduating in 2 weeks and moving back to the nutmeg state. Among other things I'm setting up a young democrats chapter in the 8th state senate district, working to get a democrat (Steve Berry) elected in that district, and ensure that Joe Lieberman does not get reelected. Thanks for all your work and your commentary, I'm definitely adding you to my CT politics blogroll! Keep up the good work!!!

LIberal Yankee, thanks! That's awesome. "Ned-o-phile" LOL!

Keep in touch when you get back, and I'm sure I'll meet you at some Ned event.
