Some pics from earlier today

The "banana guy" from the Bridgeport Wal-mart event. I think my buddy Neal had a problem with him. I may have to look at My Left Nutmeg to see what all the hubbub was about.

You know why everyone wanted to take this guy's picture?

It's because he's got "appeal". Tee hee!

Yes, go ahead and groan loudly; I deserve it.

How does Ned manage to look cool, calm, and collected while experiencing the thermal equivalent of slam dancing in a mosh pit on the fucking SUN? While squirming towards the podium with maybe a hundred other disgustingly overheated people, I think one of my permanent tattoos got washed off my body because of other people's sweat pouring onto me.

Yeah, it was repulsive.

When Ned wins, he's gonna owe me. Big!

Not really.

Although...I've always wanted to bang my wife in the Lincoln bedroom.

...while Lincoln is watching! LOL! But enough about my twisted fantasies...

Here's the Rev. Jesse Jackson with Ned Lamont late tonight in New Haven. I taped an interview by CT Blogger of Rev. Jackson after the appearance. We'll see the completed video on ConnecticutBLOG maybe late tonight or tomorrow; CT Blogger was a little star-struck but did a fantastic job with Jesse Jackson who, while clearly tired, had some fun at one point during the interview and playfully jabbed at the midsection of one of the BBC camera guys who was standing off to the side taping him.

Today was a good day. Tomorrow, I'll be working most of the day, but beyond that, it's "all Ned, all the time!"

Banana guy is a bad joke. The Kiss float resonates because there is lots of fundamental truths underlying the Kiss image.

But who thinks Lamont is "Bananas". This is 7 year old humor that has zero politcal impact.

An article in today's Courant ("Rivals Unite In
Wal-Mart Protest", August 3, 2006) reported that:

"Wal-Mart PAC had recorded a $1,000 contribution to
Lieberman's Senate campaign - a fact widely reported
on the blogs. Lieberman's campaign, however, says it
never accepted the check"

The article quoted Senator Lieberman's assertion that
"Wal-Mart PAC sent my campaign a check in March, and
we returned it a week later."

In this context, I thought that you all might be interested to learn the following:

1. The well respected non-partisan site Political
Money Line reports that Walmart Stores PAC contributed
$10,000 to the RETAIL INDUSTRY LEADERS ASSOCIATION
POLITICAL ACTION COMMITTEE AKA RETAIL LEADERS PAC
which in turn, on June 29, 2006, contributed $1,000 to
Joe Lieberman's senate campaign.

2. The site Political Money Line also reports that
that Walmart Stores PAC contributed $5,000 to the
ROCKY MOUNTAIN PAC, and that the Rockey Mountain PAC
contributed $1,000 to Joe Lieberman's senate campaign
on August 4, 2005.

4. The site Political Money Line reports that during
the 2005-2006 cycle, Walmart directly gave Lieberman
$1,000.

5. By contrast, Ned Lamont has not received a penny in
contributions from Walmart, directly or indirectly.
