Chris Murphy for U.S. Senate in 2012!

A lot has happened since my last post, and a lot will probably happen between this one and my next post, but there are two things that I must mention:

1. Joe Lieberman is not running for re-election. Good riddance.
2. Chris Murphy has announced that he will run for U.S. Senate in 2012.

I was pleased by the first thing, and so thrilled by the second that when I saw @ChrisMurphyCT‘s announcement tweet [image below], I re-tweeted it to my loyal followers in the Twitterverse and then tweeted about it myself.

To my surprise and delight, I received a video response to that tweet from our future junior Senator:

Thank you Chris Murphy, for the kind words. And thanks also to anyone reading this who still has a bookmark to spazeboy.net or subscribes to the RSS feed. I haven’t forgotten about this blog, I’ve just been focusing most of my free time on graduate school lately. As the saying goes though, since Chris Murphy’s entry in the U.S. Senate race has re-energized my will to blog, “I’ll be back.”

Sometime after graduation.
