It’s a dreary, rainy night here at the FDL safe-house. Ned the Fighting Koi is swimming happily in his bowl on the desk and all is quiet except for the sound of the rain on the roof. Nights like this, sometimes, you know these satin sheets can feel so cold, and this big bed seems so empty and forlorn.
And tonight, I just feel sad. Lonesome. "Why, Rex, why?" you may ask, "You’ve got everything a 60ft. theropod could want. You’re handsome, successful, well-respected in your field, and now you’ve even got your own press agent. What’s to feel so blue about?"
Because, Gentle Readers, sadly, Dan Gerstein appears to have been forbidden to talk to reporters any more. From the New Haven Independent:
Asked to comment on the "anti-Democratic" charges against Lieberman, the campaign’s new press secretary, Tammy Sun, responded:
"Supporters of the Nedster may be focused on political gamesmanship and party politics, but Joe Lieberman is more concerned about what is best for the people of Connecticut. He believes they deserve better, which is why he’s running as an Independent Democrat on a message of unity and purpose."
What?! New press secretary? But what about Dan-O the Idiot Boy?! But-! But-! We were having so much fun with Danny! You can’t take him away from us now! He was the best thing about the Lieberman campaign!
But sure enough, this "Tammy Sun" vixen makes a cameo at the end of the parade video that went up over at CT Bob’s place last night. How dare they? What on earth are they thinking? Dan Gerstein is Ned Lamont’s biggest ally in the battle to unseat Rape Gurney Joe! Oh, woe! Why, God, WHYYYY?!
Who, I ask you, is going to phone up the major media outlets and go into hysterical tantrums? Who else could be bothered to float such obvious and easily debunked lies? Who else could possibly be so thin-skinned, humorless, and narcissistic that sending them out to do battle with the blogs is like sending a man into a lion cage wearing a suit made of pork-chops?
Dammit, Dan, come BACK!! The Lamont campaign needs you! And more importantly, I need you.
And that’s why I am being forced to swallow my pride and make this Late Nite Booty Call. (more…)
