    Gotta LOVE this. The drums are beating, and the hunt is forming. Soon the creators of the economic holocaust will face the music:

    [size=+5]Dodd's political stock tumbles in Connecticut[/size]

    WASHINGTON (AP) - Democrats may want to start thinking about a bailout for Senate Banking Committee Chairman Christopher Dodd, whose political stock has slipped amid the financial meltdown.

    As a five-term Democrat who blew out his last two opponents by 2-1 margins in a blue state that President Barack Obama won handily, Dodd, D-Conn., should be cruising to re-election in 2010. Instead, he's feeling heat from a Republican challenger eager to make him a poster boy for the tumult in the housing and financial markets.

    A recent poll showed former Rep. Rob Simmons running about even with Dodd, a former national Democratic Party chairman.

    Poetic justice. And it's just beginning. See how the perpetrators back and fill..... it's going to be a clean sweep in the next election. Watch this space......

    Mods: feel free to merge under this thread title ("Dodd's political stock tumbles...."). Thanks.

    Not that this news is not worth two, three, or a THOUSAND new threads. Chris Dodd is to America's economic health as a 3-pack a day habit is to physical health.

    30 years in the Senate is way-y-y-y too much. Time for some new blood. Like me, for example!! :D

    Ted Stevens... 40 years... resulted in conviction..
    John McCain... 26 years...
    Bob Dole... 27 years... now promoting promiscuity of old folks by pimping Viagra..

    Do you want to amend the constitution to stop the evil Chris Dodds??? Or is this one of those situational applications once again..

    And Robert "The REAL Wizard" Byrd (D-WVa) has been there since Grover Cleveland was president.

    Obviously Ted Stevens over-stayed his mission; Dole (sex for the elderly.... some day you'll appreciate his work :eek:) and McCain -- both LESS than Chrisshy D-uHP-o-uHP-dd (hiccup).

    Look, drunken Dodd helped destroy the U.S. economy; it's time to move on. He should just resign now and save the tax-payers the money and anxiety of even the prospects of more of his tired game. ... really.
