Hey, look! It's Connecticut's newest senator, seated front row at last night's UConn women's basketball game. I think for Blumenthal this expression qualifies as "exultant." Loosen the tie, Dick! Given his ethics troubles during the campaign, I sure hope he paid for those tickets...unlike another prominent politician.
