Once again, the Courant front-pages a throwaway piece from the AP that Ned contributed $500,000 to his own campaign for Senate. Joe Lieberman, on the other hand, went to Florida for a fundraiser run by Mel Sembler. A Republican crony who... well, just click on the link if you don't know about this guy. (I'm waiting to see if he and Mark Foley are buddies).
Joe's national list of Dems for Joe is filled with former members of Congress who are now big-time lobbyists in some of Joe's favorite areas -- health care, homeland security, major drug industry, defense, oil industry, insurance and health care. Joe has shown us he is for sale to the highest bidder that will do whatever he needs to stay in office.
Ned, on the other hand is not accepting PAC money, and by contributing his own money, he is not beholden to any special interests besides those of OUR state.
So, the next time you hear Ned has made a personal contribution to his campaign, it is just one more piece of the mountain of evidence that says Ned's special interest is US.
