Dodd spokesman calls Tea Party Patriots “Tea-baggers”

Extreme, fringe, and tea-baggers … this is what your Senator thinks of all of you. And the very fact that he has had to resort to using fowl sexual language to describe his constituents gives you a good indication of the state of his campaign.

Chris Dodd won’t improve his chances of re-election with talk like this. In one easy to read statement, Dodd’s campaign manager called hard working constituents Extreme, fringe, and tea-baggers. High School!

Dodd’s campaign manager, Jay Howser, said that the tea-baggers have nothing to offer.

“The great thing about the far right wing, extreme group of tea-baggers who have entertained us throughout the summer is that their idea of free speech is akin to shouting down opposition, drowning out debate, and in Connecticut, encouraging Sen. Dodd to commit suicide with painkillers and alcohol,” Howser said. “No responsible American, regardless of their political beliefs, thinks that this fringe element has anything valuable to offer to our country’s discourse or debate.”

This is what Chris Dodd thinks of you. Chris Dodd who did not know what VIP meant, did not know that the stimulus contained an exception for AIG bonuses (even though he put it in the bill), did not know the value of his Irish cottage and clearly did not know as chairman of the banking committee that the banking system was collapsing,

Dodd man walking indeed (Picture from Instapundit).


It’s on thing when Media people get their jollies using now well known sexual slang to describe suburban housewives, grandmothers and other hard working New Englanders protesting an out of control, big spending, overbearing government, not to mention a Senator who seems to have some serious and regular lapses of judgement. But when a representative of the senior Senator from Connecticut uses this kind of language … it smacks of desperation.

Welcome Free Republic readers and thank you. Please also take a moment to read this post on Chris Dodd.

Callers yesterday put the number at anywhere from 1000 to 2000 and the Courant is reporting 1500 (more on that article in another post). Amazing considering the rain and the time of day. You make a little mobster proud.

RVO Chatter Darlene (and now official Tea Party reporter) sent me these pics (via her Facebook page) from yesterday’s Tea party in Hartford. You can see more there. Sorry I could not be there but … well … I was working. But it looks like “a good time was had all all.” Rain was not about to stop New England patriots from turning out.

But this one is my personal favorite. Faith is beautiful drenched … but the dump Dodd sign is a nice touch.
