What’s on Governor M. Jodi Rell’s Christmas shopping list? Gag gifts for Democrats and gubernatorial candidates running for her seat. Rell announced the contents of that gift-giving list at a Monday morning meeting of the Middlesex County Chamber of Commerce in Cromwell, Conn., the Hartford Courant reported this evening.

As part of an annual tradition, Rell read off her list in the style of “‘Twas the Night before Christmas.” She said she wants to get Democratic Senator Chris Dodd “one of my old scarves to cover up the big bull’s-eye on the Senator’s back.” And for Senator Joe Lieberman?
