This is me after the convention concluded with the wonderful showing by Ned, enjoying a cigar and a brewski in the De Stefano For Governor tent. About 1/2 hour after this self-portrait was shot, I ended up at a North End cajun restaurant for the after-party (how fucking cool is it that Ned's campaign selected a funky, hip-hop, full-of-soul restaurant for the after-convention party?)
And yes, I'm wearing a Stetson. Best hats evar!
Lamont had the smallest tent compared to the big buck campaigns of Lieberman, Malloy and De Stefano, but after an informal poll I took of the delegates, Ned's tent rated the BEST free food of the convention! I was mistakenly advised that Lieberman was serving sushi, when in fact it was burgers and booze they were pushing on their reluctant constituents. Guess those lame-o slap sticks ate into their catering budget. Ned served mighty fine cajun food. Tasty and messy....mmm-mmm-good!
And De Stefano's campaign had the busiest bar and best music by FAR, but we all know us Italians are great when it comes to throwing a party.
I'll post more tomorrow, as it's coming up on 1AM and I have to be back in Hartford at 9 for the rest of the conventions, and it's about an hour away, so I'm gonna go to sleep.
Thirty three and a frickin-third percent! Yowsa! As someone mentioned over on FireDogLake earlier tonight, Lieberman must be shitting string right about now.
