This paragraph summarizes exactly why Dodd is playing the games he is playing:
That's why we can't let the story die, and it leads me to one aspect of the article I'll take issue with. Why the fawning over the Courant's coverage? I suppose it has been good compared to the national media, but that should be a given. It's a Connecticut paper; they ought to be covering Connecticut's corrupt senator a lot closer than the LA Times. But asking one question, with no follow-up, every month or two is far from the hard-hitting journalism Hemmingway seems to think we are being treated to.
Speaking of the Courant, Capitol Watch linked the NRO article here, and Instapundit linked it here.
