Senator Dodd just got his first primary opponent yesterday when virtual unknown Merrick Alpert announced his candidacy at his home. Alpert has no prior experience but apparently has the money to burn. A few hours later he would go on Fox News, where his appearance was more important than a White house press briefing going on at the same time. Alpert's talking points in this clip are straight out of the republican handbook. Earlier in the day he called Chris Dodd "Bambi", and that Dodd was part of the "culture of corruption" in Washington.
Dodd also has to contend with two real republican weasels who are vying for his job in the U.S. Senate.
Should be an interesting 18 months until the election. Or as one CT journalist succinctly put it,
"Somewhere, Glenn Beck and Rob Simmons are smiling."
