Yeah Connecticut!

The BRAC (Base Closure and Realignment Commission) has voted to remove Groton Submarine Base from the list of military bases to be closed. This is great news for the state of Connecticut and, probably, the right thing to do. It never made a lot of sense to include Groton on the list anyway, since the submarine school and Electric Boat are located in the near vicinity.

Additional reactions from: OTB, Pray Connecticut, Chickbean.

I am sure that the saving of a blue state's base will do nothing to help soothe the rough feelings of Republicans in South Dakota.
