Matt Bai, why don’t you stick your head up your ass!
The know-it-all scribe for The New York Times, who thinks he’s smart and everyone else is stupid, former student of Bridgeport Regional Business Council President Paul Timpanelli, wrote this in an exhaustive Sunday Times Mag piece about Connecticut politics:
Paul Timpanelli, who runs Bridgeport’s business council — and who, as a young Democratic politician back in the 1980s, gave me my first summer internship — is just old enough to remember the tail end of that era, and over lunch at one of Bridgeport’s few really good downtown restaurants, he marveled at how party politics had changed. Specifically, Timpanelli was talking about how state Democrats failed to rally behind Dodd earlier this year — how they seemingly did not know how to offer an endangered incumbent, a man who served for 30 years in the Senate and became a giant of state politics, any incentive to seek re-election.
Matt, what the hell do you know about downtown restaurants? Have you tried them all? Joseph’s? Ralph ‘n’ Rich’s? Café Roma? Épernay? Tiago’s? Two Boots? All downtown. Care to write a review on each one? Or perhaps Matt meant to write new instead of few?
Matt, here’s a list of city restaurants in case you want to offer a second opinion:
Sorry for the delay in releasing mayoral poll results. The sampling was split into two phases to test a variety of issues and subjects. The second phase is currently in the field. I cannot release any information until I’ve had a chance to review data with folks we’ve commissioned to do the poll. I hope to have a weekend session to review the data, with an update next week.
