"Degrees of conjugation" in Delaware

The indespensible Celia Cohen at Delaware Grapewine neatly sums up Delaware in describing a politically connected law firm:
No one who knows anything about Delaware ever talks about degrees of separation. What matters in this little state is degrees of conjugation -- how many ways people are connected to one another.

Celia is 100% about the "inside baseball" personality stories. She documents the waxing and waning of various real and imagined Olympian deities. Delaware gives her the perfect little terrarium for this type of reporting.

If she were even 1% about policy, I'd have a great deal more respect for her.

Jason, I agree that Celia is mostly about inside game, but you have to do politics in order to do policy, and in order to do politics in Delaware you have to know the players.
As for anonymous: Pointless, lame flames will be deleted.

Anonymous: Democracy is not at issue here. This is a blog, not a unit of government.
I reserve the right to remove comments for the same reason radio stations reserve the right to bleep their callers.
While I enjoy the conversation with readers, I have no problem removing comments along the lines of "[Person] is a [body part]."
