A Morality Play

Colin McEnroe has nailed it once again in his blog and most particularly with this statement:

"Ragaglia's story provides further proof that Rell's moral leadership is almost entirely symbolic."

And that is the point.
Do you think anyone is listening??

MAYBE back when the Great Unwashed of CT elected John Rowland (and Jodi Rell) once, twice, then three times, they didn't realize they were opening the hen house for the fox ... but now?

The only reason (besides the legal details) Rell was not swept out of office along with Rowland was her assertion, and the G.U. of CT's desire to believe, that she knew nothing of the crimes being committed. Her excellent portrayal of the pure, dedicated, warm and fuzzy (but apparently oblivious) Lt. Gov. understudy has earned her the starring role as the pure, dedicated, morally upright and virtuous Gov., but maybe the spotlight shines too brightly on her in this part:

"Ragaglia's story provides further proof that Rell's moral leadership is almost entirely symbolic."

In the minds of the G.U. of CT, two things qualify Rell for the leading role: her years of experience at the Capitol (at the elbow of the -most corrupt?- Gov. in CT history) and her perceived integrity and righteousness.

"Ragaglia's story provides further proof that Rell's moral leadership is almost entirely symbolic."

Perhaps this time, the G.U. of CT will elect, not the candidate who SEEMS brisk and efficient, like he could get things done, nor the candidate who oozes virtue and kindness and with whom you'd want to share a glass of milk, but someone who has ACTUALLY ACCOMPLISHED SOMETHING: run a municipality, for years, successfully, amidst the muck of politics.

One more time:

"Ragaglia's story provides further proof that Rell's moral leadership is almost entirely symbolic."

Wake up, CT!
