I've got to wonder: when is Russell going to endorse Rivers?

OK, the dust has settled. Russell's had a few days to get used to the idea that his political life is over.

The question is this: when is he going to endorse Rivers?

There's a been a lot of talk about unifying behind Ridgefield Barbie, no matter how unearned, undeserving, clueless and ignorant she may be so that we can get someone... anyone... in the seat with an R after their name.

But none of that talk seems to have seeped over into the 18th District, where Jon Russell brought all of his abysmal campaign skills from his disastrous run at Congress to an equally disastrous run in at the state representative level.

In large part, Russell himself bears the responsibility for that. In another part, a complete political moron by the name of Gary Wiram bears responsibility for helping Jon acquire the reputation of sliminess he's achieved, with a series of slithering pieces that seemed to mostly fail to mention that he was still getting a pay check from Russell... what little Russell could afford given his unbelievably awful fund raising abilities.

Hopefully, all of Russell's supporters have learned some valuable lessons here. Now the question is this:

Will Russell unequivocally endorse Rivers?

And why am I not holding my breath, since he hasn't done it yet?
