Blumenthal survives?

If this is as bad as it gets, I think he'll pull through. I don't trust this poll entirely, though. WWE CEO Linda McMahon making a race of it against Connecticut's AG, while moderate and popular former GOP Rep. Rob Simmons still trails by double digits? Rasmussen polls seem more and more like Zogby polls (or just random numbers) every day.

Problem: I have lots of opinions on politics and culture that I need to vent. If I do not do this I will wind up muttering to myself, and that's only like one or two steps away from being a hobo. Solution: I write two blogs. A political blog that has some evident sympathies (pro-Obama, mostly liberal though I dissent on some issues, like guns and trade) and a culture blog that does, well, cultural essays in a more long-form manner. My particular thing is taking overrated things (movies, mostly, but other things too) down a peg and putting underrated things up a peg. I'm sort of the court of last resort, and I tend to focus on more obscure cultural phenomena.
