MILFORD, Conn. (WTNH) Was it something I said?
U.S. Sen. Richard Blumenthal might have been thinking just that after a near brush with death during a press conference Friday at the Milford Metro-North station.
Just as Milford Mayor Ben Blake started to say, safety, as you know, is paramount, a train came whooshing by the platform, inches from the senator who had his back turned and was partly standing on the yellow line.
The press conference was called after Blumenthal slammed Metro-North Railroad for collecting $552,000 in fines over the past decade for safety violations and defects.
better luck next time
So, the opening didn’t say Republican and thus I am likely considering correctly a Democrat, right?
As my Momma always said; Stupid is as stupid does.
He need to drop the fines to the METRO company, and fine himself for being so stupid. A U.S Senator...he crossed the line. FINE HIM.
Senator <--> Stupid
Yep!! He’s a dummycrat!! Ha ha.
Any one notice if Frank Underwood was in the vicinity?
It would not have made any difference. The retards of Connecticut would just vote in another one just like him.
The TV show House of Cards is closer to the truth when it comes to corrupt politicians in Washington and the Democrat party.
Close but no cigar...
“Dummy, update your Flash Player.”
“Ummm, ok....gee, it works now.”
Politicians telling us all what to do instead of minding their own business. Pretty symbolic.

Of course. And even in the WTNHNews8 video clip, the reportard and reportardette did not disclose that Blumenthal was a Demonrat.
“Reportard and Reportardett.” I like that.. Where’s the damn “LIKE” button on this forum?”
As Bugs Bunny once said....
Ah ha ha ha
What a Maroon!
On Monday morning, someone is going to lose their livelihood over that.
He lied about his military service:
Un-American dirtbags elected him anyway.

This probably should have been a ‘shoo-in’ for a Darwin Award BUT the ‘damn fool train missed’.
Lets just call it Karma and hope he continues looking for pianos falling from the sky and Coyote (Road Runner) type ‘accidents’ follow him around.
May he turn into “Joe Blftsk” a memorable Al Capp character who always had a dark cloud over his head, even on a bright sunny day.
This Blommingidiotthal character sold himself as a VN Combat Marine and when it was learned he wasn’t, the CT VFW backed him anyway and he beat McMahans wife for the Senate seat....with HELP FROM RNC AND THE GOPe and our ‘old friend’ Karl Rove.
Of course if the train hit him it would have been the trains fault and we would have had to sit through a ‘Heroes Funeral’....
Good thing the Train didn’t hit the Dog and the Pony.
That's not a misprint, folks. Here's a still photo from the video at the article linked above:
Is that a flying tiger kick?!
It was found out later the crewman put his foot out to keep the idiots brains away from sharp pieces of metal protruding from said train.
natural selection ... sometimes it just misses is doing its job
“Sen. Richard Blumenthal”
This Darwin award runner-up is only marginally more intelligent than the constituents who put him in office.
Like bringing a blowhard to a train fight.
Blumenthal is such an idiot.
It won’t play for me either, and I’m not going to try and unravel which security program is blocking their video.
We narrowly averted a disaster. Not that anyone decent would have missed Richard Blumenthal, but the crash would have been upsetting to the train engineer.
Did he deploy those rapid reflexes forged in the military and honed to a razor edge in battle in Viet Nam?
Beat me to it... a friend sent that to me yesterday.
Trains don’t care who you are or what your purpose is...
