    Well, he’s consistent, though. He’s not one to fall a few votes behind in Florida and concede. No, sir, he wants to make sure that every vote counts–and I don’t just mean the votes of registered Democrats, either. He’ll stay in the race until every Connecticut citizen has a chance to say who they want to be their next Senator.

    So, does that mean you’ll be supporting an independent run by Lincoln Chafee when he goes down in the GOP primary to the Club for Growth-backed candidate?

    And moderate Rep. Joe Schwarz (R- MI) who lost a primary battle to a more conservative candidate. You’re sending him money and encouraging an independent run, right?

    And you guys would both agree, I presume, that the effect of all this electoral polarization on both ends of the color spectrum (red versus blue) is to further weaken the two-party system’s stranglehold on the rest of us?

    Sadly, no. Our current system of first past the pole will prevent a viable 3rd party from forming for the forseeable future. Media is just too expensive. And the donations go to likely winners.

    Lamont self-funded his primary campaign to the tune of $4M. Without that, Lieberman wins in a walk.

    On second thought, perhaps a party of the millionaires, by the millionaires, and for the millionaires would have a shot. Oh wait– we already have one of those.

    Nevermind.

    That’s what I used to hear about how we’d never loosen the union hammerlock on public schooling and develop viable alternative education without ’em – just you wait, ‘enri ‘iggins!

    Yeah, but the teachers don’t get to write the laws. 🙂 Truth-be-told, I’d love to see it. I just don’t think it’s even possible, let alone likely.
