The accolades just keep pouring in

Dodd voted most corrupt politician of 2009. He certainly has my vote, but why limit it to just 2009?

    Quite a few democrats on the list, hmm. Well, anyway, with so many able competitors on the list and, I’m sure, disappointed candidates who had stellar years but failed even to make the finals, I wonder how Dodd is celebrating the honor. I can think of at least two or three others who were equally deserving. What are his chances of being reelected?

    The list is in alphabetical order, not some sort of ranked order.

    I post this as a “public service” to fellow commentators who might be ready–as I was– to sputter and fume about why Rangel was at the bottom of the list instead of the top.

      Say it ain’t so – If Dodd’s on top, where he belongs, than the alphabetical order is just coincidence, like the universe ordering itself out of chaos.

    WASHINGTON, Sept. 23 — On June 23, 1967, Senator Thomas J. Dodd, Democrat of Connecticut, was censured by the United States Senate for diverting $116,000 in campaign funds for his personal use. The vote was 92 to 5.

    “I think a grave mistake has been made, and I am the one who must bear the scar of that mistake for the rest of my life,” Thomas Dodd told a hushed chamber. His voice broke, and he was led off the floor in tears. Four years later, he died a broken man
