Chris Dodd, the fellow who used to be our Senator, but moved to Iowa, missed more than half his votes in Washington, all for a measly 1% in the polls, has now failed to make it on to the ballot in New York.
The New York Democratic primary requires 5,000 signatures to get on the ballot. Did Dodd fail to get even 5,000 New Yorkers to sign on? Even alien-loving Dennic Kucinich managed to find enough supporters in New York to get himself on the ballot there.
I have always believed that Dodd had absolutely no chance at becoming president, especially since the left-wing blogosphere has a demonstrable, painfully awkward and visible priapism for him and his campaign.
Despite enormous investments of time and energy on his part, Dodd has caught fire only in the sense of self-immolation, despite the embarrassing declarations of "Dodd-Mania" by some CT lefty bloggers.
We may see Dodd pulling his daughter out of Iowa schools and actually making some Senate votes in the near future. Dodd's journey is almost through.
