Connolly: “To make anything out of it is partisan politics.”
The Washington Post finally got around to addressing the Connolly video Ben broke and has been featured on over a dozen local and national blogs, as well as Sean Hannity’s television show. Said Connolly’s spokesman as a response:
“It was nothing more than a joke. Everyone in the room laughed. To make anything more out of it is partisan politics.”
Right. And telling a room full of Democrats at a Democratic committee meeting celebrating the inauguration of a Democratic President by rallying support for Democratic candidates and joking about giving the other party the wrong date of the election is… what? The essence of bi-partisanship? Or as Sean Hannity might say, “Working across the aisle, Connolly-style”.
