Finally, it's here.
This Tuesday is primary day which means I'm working my tail off trying to cover the races. The entire media and political world seems to be here and I'm in the middle of everything. Simply put, there is no time for me to watch local stuff right now.
I know, whaa, whaa, what about Danbury, whaa, whaa. Look, it's simple, unless you've been living in a case for the last six months, something really big is going on in the Democratic Party. A three-term senator is facing the political fight of his life and everyone from the New York Times, Washington Times, and Boston Globe, to the BBC, MSNBC, and CNN are here right now.
I just do not have enough time to cover the primary races and watch everything that is happening in Danbury right now and really, what's happening? BOE catching heat over their pick because African-Americans are upset?
Ah, where were you guys when Davis needed your support?
Where were you during the nomination process?
I could go on, but I hold back for now (unless this nonsense about the BOE not caring about the African-Americans in Danbury continues). Complaining AFTER the nomination process speaks volumes.
What else is happening? Pauline Basso running against Bob Godfrey? One word: landslide. If Basso thinks hanging out with the xenophobes waving for illegal immigrant sign in Bethel last Sunday will win her any votes, she's in for a big surprise. It's amusing how the Republicans didn't take challenging Godfrey seriously so they threw wacko Basso a bone. I'm very happy she's in the race, I have enough outrageous comments from her on video to last a lifetime.
Hmm, anything else? Festivals all over the place (nice). Democrats still doing next to nothing in terms of their visibility in the area (can anyone name three people on the DTC), Republicans taking their marching orders from the big house, local broadcast of political meetings is on the table (but unlikely), and the people are the ones who are getting screwed in the end.
In other words, nothing much is happening. I'm off to cover the race of the year. I'll be back to talk about this dysfunctional city later.
