When a 20+ year incumbent looks towards a popular governor for help, you know someone's desperate.
Lagging in two polls, U.S. Rep. Nancy Johnson, R-5th District, made a sweep through Danbury on Monday to rally support in the countdown to Election Day.I wonder if other Republicans include Alan Schlesinger.
Johnson was exuberant as she stood in front of City Hall to accept the support of Gov. M. Jodi Rell and other Republicans.
Seriously, Johnson is down in all the polls and like Joe Lieberman showed his desperation when begging Bill Clinton for help, Johnson shows her cards when begging Jodi Rell to stand by her side.
What even more laughable was Nancy Johnson not uttering the word Republican once during her stump speech.
Johnson spoke frequently Monday about her similarities with the popular Rell, and never uttered the word Republican.
"We're both street ladies," Johnson said of herself and Rell. "Street ladies aren't governed by parties. I never ran a problem by a political party to find a solution."
Memo to Johnson: people are not going to buy your garbage which is why your losing to Murphy in all the polls.
Jodi Rell didn't vote in favor of the Iraq War.
Jodi Rell didn't vote in favor of illegally wiretapping Americans.
Jodi Rell didn't vote in favor of the god-awful Medicare Part D bill.
Jodi Rell didn't accept campaign contributi...well maybe that's where Rell and Johnson are alike in that way.
