I had the pleasure of attending this year’s Jefferson Jackson Bailey Dinner last week. There I heard Gov. Dannel P. Malloy’s fine speech outlining many of the very good things he has done as governor. One line on another topic stuck with me, however, because I agreed with it and because it terrified me. The governor referred to Congressional Republicans as “barbarians” at the wall. The analogy is apt. Yet, the really scary thing to remember is that the historical Barbarians managed to take down the Roman Empire.

(Updated 6:03 p.m.) Remember when the Connecticut State Police Union endorsed Dan Malloy for governor in 2010? Today the union’s president describes its relationship with Gov. Dannel P.

(Updated 5:30 p.m.) Her appearance in a 2010 World Wrestling Entertainment ad for the Make-A-Wish foundation was less than two seconds and her name wasn’t even mentioned, so the Federal Election Commission decided to give Linda McMahon’s 2010 Senate campaign a pass.

If I were outgoing state GOP Chairman Chris Healy and my state had been a glaring outlier in the Red Tide of voter discontent in 2010, I would have spent my remaining days in office engaging in introspection as to the cause, and working with my State Central colleagues to ensure a smooth transition for the next chairman so things go better in 2012.
