Get the Butter: Blumenthal is ‘Hopeless, Doomed, Toast’

Manchester Journal Register edit page editor Keith Burris pens this pre-obit/op-ed – “How to lose an unlosable race” — on the dismal performace of Connecticut AG Dick Blumenthal, who once led Republican senate hopeful Linda McMahon is polls by scores, but now only by single digits.
