But it is also true you have kick-ass gender politics, in addition to being a radical feminist.

The headline? “Romanoff roars into virtual tie.” There you have it, friends. I thought the campaigns must have had some interesting internal polling information that at least one side had been leaking to the media for the past week or so.

Post to follow later!

Over at ColoradoPols, which has been all pro-Bennet all the way, they put up a post yesterday “So. . . What if Romanoff Actually Pulls it Off?”, when all year long all they’ve done is mock him and mock his efforts in the primary. The Denver Post is going into overdrive to protest their little Wall Street Senator–apparently, bringing up the source of Bennet’s big bucks is going too negative in their view.

The link you sent pretty much sums up why I’ve always thought Bennet was a complete tool. With Democrats like Ritter and Bennet, who needs Republicans? Romanoff is also an Ivy-league carpet bagger, but at least he came to Colorado and made something of himself in one line of work, and built up his expertise and competence. Bennet just went from appointment to appointment with Daddy’s help. I don’t have too many illusions that Romanoff will be a Front Range Russ Feingold–but at least he worked to get where he is.

Incidentally, everyone running for the Senate here is an Ivy Leaguer except for Jane Norton, who went to Baa Ram U. Ken Buck went to Princeton, and Romanoff and Bennet went to Yale (Bennet was Yale Law.) WTF?

Could you pleez pleez pleez write a post about Bennet, before the mail election ends?

I’m kinda skeered that the Fix Is In, and moved to Romanoff — why am I the last to know that Romanoff co-chaired the Colorado DLC?

I’m hella suspicious that the Denver Post and other press has veered away from Bennet. I think it’s due to Bennet’s last minute kabuki about Congressional reforms — if he kept his big mouth shut, they woulda made it a shoe-in, but now they’re making him work for it. Either way, there’s no guarantee Romanoff won’t go Blue Dog and cash in, once he pleads “oh, no, the big bad GOP’s too big to fight without corporate cash”c

But happy, pleasant, and “consistent.”

Not to rain on anyones parade, relative mediocrity is the lot of most of us.

Mary Poppins? Isn’t there a more interesting metaphor?

From way back in the 90s, when I still watched the show. Thanks for the link, Janice!

But, to be honest, I think the Simpsons nailed it even better with their Sherry Bobbins homage (as illustrated by this video mash-up): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o_ltjFJVysE
