Democratic Sen. Chris Dodd (Conn.) on Wednesday announced that he will not seek another term after facing a tough reelection bid.
Dodd's decision to retire is another blow to the increasingly fragile Democratic majority in the Senate.
Last time I checked, Dodd was polling poorly and his replacement, Dick Blumenthal, was the most popular politician in the state. Last time I checked, Blumenthal had a hilariously large lead over presumptive GOP nominee Rob Simmons (59-28. 59-28!). Last time I checked, The Hill never let facts get in the way of fellating the Republican establishment.
A few hours later, The Hill amended its story to note that replacing the trailing, scandal-ridden candidate with one who has a 2:1 lead in the polls was not such bad news for the Democrats after all.
