A Song for Dodd
The Connecticut liberal outpost of the blogosphere is curious, and probably smells like an old cheese. But it likes to take credit for an awful lot. They claim their "people powered media" is changing the political landscape.
Chris Dodd has won almost universal praise from these pants-less shut-ins. He was the only member of the state delegation not to roundly drub MoveOn.org over their smears, and they adore him.
So, if these left-wing bloggers are so powerful, and so heavily influence the politics of our age, how come Dodd can't get out of the basement? His polling numbers still hang somewhere between those of a squirrel from Tallahassee named Reginald, and those of a shirt once worn by Barry Goldwater. Even someone named Margin of Error is beating him.
So the above song is dedicated to Chris Dodd, and all his blogging minions. "Nowhere Man." And it is done appropriately in the psychedelic & hallucinogenic trappings of the Yellow Submarine Film.
Isn't he a bit like you and me? Thank God, no.
