Float An Idea

Athenae makes a great point in her look at the Lamont campaign: more floats.

If I had the time and money, Jeff Miller would not go anywhere in the district without something like this following him around.

I’d probably add a few oily hand prints on the truck to go with a series of short hits:

Miller prefers:

  • Corporations over Cobia
  • Tar balls over Turtles
  • Petroleum over Porpoises
  • Natural Gas over Nature’s Grace
  • Profits over Paradise

Just a few reminders of his vote on offshore drilling.

Bloggy Stuff

John McKay at archy is approaching his half century and is hoping to achieve 75K hits before then, a couple of weeks. He wants to do it “honestly”, not multiple visits from the same people. If you haven’t dropped by in a while make the effort – the “50” makes people weird so it could get interesting.

I’ve added Anecdotes from a Banana Republic, a Lebanese Riverbend to the roll. She lives in Beirut and has a sense of humor about a very unfunny situation.

Cut To The Chase

Juan Cole on the Connecticut primary: Lieberman’s Defeat
