Notwithstanding their earlier decision to quit and go home, state Demmerkrats, upon learning that the final episode of Lost will be broadcast Sunday night, not Saturday, decided to stick around beautiful, exciting Hartford and, as alternative entertainment, named Stamford’s former mayor as their party’s candidate for governor. A bitter Ned Lamont vowed to fight on.
“That asshole doesn’t even know how to spell his own name,” Lamont sputtered. “Dannel? Dannel? Give me a fucking break! Besides, I have millions of my own money to spend – Malloy’s on welfare. And I’ve got endorsements! Whatshisface – the mayor of Hartford, that PR, Perez? He’s going to campaign for me; or he will if his bribery trial ends okay. And, and, I deserve it! Everybody else in this goddamned election is a rich fuck from Greenwich, why not me?”
