The running of the rich: Is wealth changing Connecticut politics? - StamfordAdvocate
If you're a Republican running for the Senate and you just have to own a yacht, make sure you christen her Freedom or maybe Lady Liberty or hows about Opportunity.
What you don't want to do is give her that vaunted name in the history of the seas Sexy Bitch. And while we're at it, Odalisque ain't a hell of a lot better. It means harem slave or something like it in Turkish so that one pretty much hits it out of the park. It's foreign, it's sexist and it's a little kinky. Heck of a job hitting the trifecta.
Of course, none of it matters a tinker's damn because none of the Republicans seeking Chris Dodd's seat have a snowball's chance in hell.
