Healy Visits Dodd Cottage in Ireland

(h/t Shelly Sindland

CTGOP Chairman Chris Healy was in Ireland for the last few weeks on a honeymoon tour of the land of his forefathers.  While visiting the Emerald Isle, Healy took time away to visit U.S. Senator Chris Dodd’s Irish “cottage”:

Healy visited the controversial homestead of Connecticut’s Senior Senator on July first and says after seeing it in person, it is quite the pad. Healy, who could also have a future as an Irish Tour guide, took home video of the 12 acre estate with a panoramic mountain view of the “Twelve Points of Ben”.

There’s a photo – check it out.

    Luckily, in the matter of that damn Inishnee cottage, Senator Dodd has been completely vetted by none other than Team Dodd!

    They say there just isn’t any “there”, there. The implied quid pro quo with Edward Downe is absurd and unprovable. The eyebrow raising appraisals are perfectly explainable. The Republican charges of “illegal gifts” are just scurrilous partisanship. And there weren’t any home improvements made that Dodd didn’t pay for?

    For all those who think myself and other Dems should say yes to a Dodd re-nomination, I simply ask, “Don’t we deserve more re-assurances about that cottage?” After all this is the state that sent Rowland to jail for sweetheart deals involving his vacation cottage and his D.C. condo.

    So I say forget Chris Healy. Let’s send Paul Bass to Ireland. Let him spend a long weekend in the cottage. Let him ask about town and dig through the land records. Then allow him interview to interview Bomstein, Downe & Kessinger. Afterwards if Bass says there’s no “there”, there, then and only then should we all rest easy.

    Otherwise as a party, Dems should be terribly concerned about what might be lying in wait as a potential 2010 post-convention suprise. Because something has drawn Tom Foley, the ex-Bushie Ireland Ambassador, into what should be an unwinnable contest. And something has Chris Healy dragging his newlywed wife to Galway.

    Is there a “There”, there? That’s what I want to know.

    Word is Healy’s has other pictures to show. Maybe he has pictures of Barney Franks and Teddy Kennedy on the back deck. Now, there’s one heck of a mental picture!

  3. Did Healy have permission to tramp all over the Senator’s property, or was he trespassing? I’d hate to think the CT chairman of the Republican Party was a blatant lawbreaker.

    I don’t know Bob. Looking at the picture, I didn’t see any “Posted: No Tresspassing” signs.

    Maybe Healy was just snipe hunting?

  5. Probably he was “tripe” hunting.

  6. Healy reminds me of my ex-husband (who is in the cheese business) who took me to visit a grana padano factory in Italy on our honeymoon.

    Womanly advice to Healy: he is now EX husband. Just make sure to keep things in perspective in terms of what is important in your life.

  7. …..who took me to visit a grana padano factory in Italy on our honeymoon.

    I married a knockout with the heart of Mother Teresa in 2002.
    (Scooper and CTBob have both met her and will attest that she’s out of my league).

    I had the whole honeymoon planned;
    Arrive in Paris, spend a couple of days, rent a car travel to the coast for a day or two then on to Italy where we would spend a day or two in Milan…….

    That’s where I got into trouble.

    “What are we going to do in Milan?” she asked.

    “We’ll, take a tour of the Alfa Romeo plant of course!” I replied; realizing as I saw the look on her face it was not to be……..

    We went to Barbados instead.
