I may have spoken too soon.
The New York Times almost certainly went to print with Republican oppo. There'd be no fatal sin in that - if disclosed - but the long habit of Richard Blumenthal's self-description, including the very speech in 2008 the Times is on about, may have been honest. Which would make Linda McMahon the liar, even if it doesn't exculpate Blumenthal completely.
Time will, uh, may tell.
Update (6/1): Added to paragraph 2:
- the parenthetical in sentence 2 with the link to DailyKos
- the dependent clause at the end of sentence 3
