Hey look!! I met the junior senator from Massachusetts - Sen. Ed Markey. He just won John Kerry’s vacation seat.
I didn’t realize how wicked tall he is. I did tell him he’s doing a “helluva job.” He chuckled and said “thanks.” We’re totally, like, best friends now.
Also, please excuse my hair, the hotel had shitty product and I look like I washed with Crisco. But whatever, my new bestie is a senator. So there.
Supposedly Terry McAuliffe wins narrowly in Virginia.
If you concede in an election, but then you end up getting more votes in the end, can you totally take it back?
My personal life has nothing to do with my ability to lead the state of Maine.
So I wasn’t surprised to learn about the whisper campaigns, insinuations and push-polls some of the people opposed to my candidacy have been using to raise questions about my personal life. They want people to question whether I am gay.
Allow me to save them the trouble with a simple, honest answer: “Yes I am. But why should it matter?” (Read More.)
There is nothing more pathetic than a political candidate’s Twitter and Facebook accounts after they lose.
It’s all breathless, every ten minute updates and then …. nothing. For days. And then maybe a sad little “I’m still alive” update.
A notable exception is Boston City Councillor Felix Arroyo who is tweeting and FBing like a boss. That’s right, Felix, you ran a damn good race. No hiding, baby.
The Democratic nominee for the State Senate 1st Suffolk District is Linda Dorcena Forry, a woman of color. Forry is a long-time state representative and a native of Dorchester.
Long known as the “Southie seat” and once held by Billy Bulger, the district covers neighborhoods across Boston, including Southie, Dorchester, Mattapan and Hyde Park.
Way to go Linda!! Let’s bring it home in June.
Also reported by HuffPo and the Boston Herald.
"The conservative-leaning Boston Herald was the first to know that Scott wasn’t running. "U are the first to know," he sent in a text message.”
I would just like to proudly say that Nate Silver has projected that Massachusetts has a 100 percent chance of going for Obama.
You can all say “Duh, we knew that.” But I like to brag.
Let’s just hope that carries Elizabeth Warren to victory, too.
(By the way — New York, Maryland, Rhode Island, Vermont, California, Illinois and Hawaii are with us.)
I live in Massachusetts. He lied about:
The binder full of women.
That he balanced the state budget or it was his leadership that created one. It’s state law.
Seriously — This man cannot be trusted to tell the truth. EVER.
