“Predictions of my political demise by Rep Steve Vaillancourt appear to be greatly exaggerated,” Rep. George Lambert (R-Litchfield) wrote on Facebook after his convincing win over Manchester School Board member Robyn Dunphy in the District 18 state Senate primary.
Lambert was reacting to a piece the outspoken Manchester Representative had posted on his blog yesterday predicting Lambert would lose:”
In District 18 (Manchester Wards 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, and Litchfield), look for Ward 6 School Board member Robyn Dunphy to handily turn back Litchfield Rep George Lambert who is unique in the political world. I happen to like many politicians (mostly Democrats) with whom I disagree on issues, but Lambert is about the only person I’ve ever agreed with on most issues but still manage to despise. Only he could get away with heckling an homage to the late Warren Rudman on the House floor and then be allowed to stand at the well while voting was in progress. To know George Lambert is to never vote for him, and I suspect he’s well enough known now to be gone forever. Besides, I’ve received two very effective mailings from Dunphy and nary a word from Lambert.
Lambert posted a picture of a large black bird amid a formal place setting and wrote, "In response I offer Steve an invitation to a meal, here is a little bit of crow for him to chew on."
