I was willing to give State Rep. and House Speaker James Amann the benefit of a doubt about his mealy-mouthed support of Joe Lieberman, but my patience has run out. I've had it with this guy. I can no longer avoid the obvious:
James Amann is a pig-headed and stubborn throwback to the days of political favoritism!
Not only is he lazy about trying to learn about Ned Lamont's stance on the important issues, but he endlessly crows about it publicly as if that's a GOOD THING! From today's Norwich Bulletin:
"I don't know Ned Lamont. I don't know anything about Ned Lamont. He has zero experience," Amann said.Yes! Fine! We all understand that you're too goddamned lazy and condescending to bother finding out a single thing about the voter-selected Democratic Nomineee for US Senate! Congratulations, you moron. We're all deeply impressed by your stunning display of ignorance!
"I know Joe. He's helped me in the past, he's been a friend and he's experienced."Ah, I see it all so clearly now. What matters most to you is personal favoritism and political peearage, rather than the FUCKING ISSUES THAT AFFECT THE VOTERS!
Is this an example of the type of leadership that you stand for?
James, if you'd even once brought up a position that Ned Lamont stands for on an issue, and then explained why you disagree with it, that would be fine. I would respect that, even if I disagreed with you. That's what a political leader SHOULD do.
But you insist like a total dumbass that what matters to you MOST are the favors Joe has done for you.
This CAN'T be what you're all about, is it?
Listen up, stupid: the political landscape is changing, and you're rapidly becoming a liability rather than an asset. Either adapt and get with the program, or one day sooner than you think, you'll find yourself sitting on the sideline, wondering how you screwed up so badly!
Because it's obvious you're not the man we thought you were.
