Re: “Amid Turmoil, Sanders Launches 'Our Revolution' Political Group

Would that trip to Cuba be led by Republican former Lieutenant Governor Brian Dubie, who famously has made numerous trips to Cuba (including delivering 100 Vermont heifers to Cuban farms)?

I'm sure Comrade Brian is burnishing his revolutionary credentials rights now. Along with his other Republican comrades like Senator Jeff Flake, Senator Dean Heller, Congressman Reid Ribble, Representative Mark Sanford and Representative Tom Emmer -- among some of the Republican elected officials making trips to Cuba. Did I hear them shouting "Viva La Revolucion!" as they were engaging in life's struggles in Cuba?

Ah, red-baiting, the last refuge of right wing scoundrels...

Re: “GOP Official Says Bernie Sanders, Chris Pearson Violated Law

Brady Toensing clearly learned his craft well from his mother and step-father --- Republican attack dogs who infamously pounded the airwaves pushing the Monica Lewinsky scandal and smearing Valerie Plame for partisan purposes.

Ms. Toensing and Mr DiGenova honed the art of using their legal credentials to make multiple bogus claims against Democratic opponents, throwing up ridiculous and groundless claims in an effort to sully the reputations of their opponents.

As a partner in the DC law firm run by his mother and stepfather, Brady has continued that fine tradition of using shameless and baseless partisan attacks on opponents.

Not surprising that the Vermont Republican Party -- despite claiming at times to be different than the ugly national party - continues to rely on Toensing to import similar Atwater/ Rove tactics to Vermont.

Re: “Lisman Spent More Than $113 Per Vote in Failed Race for Governor

Outpacing Skip Vallee, Rich Tarrant and Jack McMullen!

Well done Mr. Lisman... a new Vermont record.

And they keep trying to convince us that rich business guys are who we should put in charge of public funds.

Re: “McAllister's Out; Other Legislative Incumbents Fare Well in Primaries

This story relies on incomplete numbers in the Grand Isle House race -- once all the towns reported in, Mitzi Johnson's lead was much larger in the end than reported here. Her large margins in the towns of South Hero and Grand Isle more than made up for her weaker numbers in North Hero, Alburgh and Isle la Motte.

Additionally, it appears that Andrew Julow, not Ben Joseph (as reported above), secured the second place position - albeit by a narrow 10 vote margin that could end up being challenged in a recount.

According to the Associated Press, the final numbers for the race were:

Johnson 772
Julow 560
Joseph 550
Hill 298

Re: “Media Note: Rutland Herald Editor Says, 'It's Not as Bad as It Looks'

"It's Not as Bad as It Looks"....

Was that before or after "It's just a flesh wound" and "'Tis but a scratch!" ?

Re: “With $95k Loan, Dunne Breaks Pledge to Limit Self-Financing

All five serious candidates for governor are millionaires according to their previous financial disclosure forms.

The simple fact is that our campaign finance system makes it hard for anyone without means to get elected -- if you can't pony up your own money, or don't run in wealthy circles of friends who can fund your campaign, you're in trouble.

This is just one symptom of that reality.
