The spunky spokeswoman hired by the state Democratic Central Committee, Colleen Flanagan, will be leaving to go back to work for U.S. Sen. Chris Dodd.
Since Dodd announced he wouldn’t be seeking reelection, Flanagan has been fairly quiet. However, she just couldn’t help taking a few last swings at Republicans on her way out the door.
Here was her parting message to members of both parties. It’s entitled “Every (Attack Husky) Has its Day”:
“I wanted to take a moment and let you know that this will be my last day at Democratic State Central. As of Monday, February 1, I will be working for Senator Dodd in his Hartford Senate office. The opportunity to work for Chairwoman Nancy DiNardo and the party during this incredibly exciting election cycle has been a fantastic one, and an experience from which I’ve learned a lot. While I’ll miss the back-and-forth with my good friends Chris Healy, Jim Barnett, Ed Patru, and the rest of the gang on the other side of the aisle, I won’t miss the constant buzz from my BlackBerry indicating a Google alert for any one of the 563 candidates from all parties running for various offices throughout the state, the general stress and anxiety associated with campaigns, or watching Linda McMahon make cameos in WWE storylines and Rob Simmons pull yet another teabag out of his pocket.”
Upon learning of her departure, Republican Party Chairman Chris Healy said Flanagan is “An able advocate with a bright future.”
Ed Patru, Linda McMahon’s spokesman, sent back a lighthearted response in reference to a Hartford Courant article in which Rep. Larry Cafero, R-Norwalk, mistakenly called Colleen, Kathleen.
“Who’s Kathleen Flanagan?”
