Outgoing (thank God) Governor Malloy has unveiled his official portrait, when he should probably have kept it hidden under its blanket, and it’s a doozy. The viewer is left uncertain what he’s seeing: Dannel being fitted for a funeral suit? A stiff, immobile cast on the man’s right arm, the unfortunate result of a skiing accident? The mind boggles.
Connecticut has suffered under a continuous chain of poor governors since at least Lowell Weicker’s tenure, so Malloy’s coming and going isn’t a moment of much importance, but it’s a shame he’s leaving this cartoon behind.
On the other hand, I suppose it’s fitting.
