That's what Peter Wolfgang, executive director of the Family Institute of Connecticut, argues. He tells me: "Dodd was forced out by the Left because he was a sure loser. But he was a sure loser because the people of Connecticut finally held a high-ranking member of the majority party responsible for his misdeeds. And that was only because of the work of grassroots activists who relentlessly shined a light on Dodd's failures. The conservative movement in general and the Tea Party movement in particular should take a bow. Regardless of whatever may happen next in the race for Connecticut's Senate seat, today they slew a giant."
We thought she'd never ask.
