The funniest thing about lieutenant governor races is that candidates
don't have their own placards. Instead, their name is a footnote on
lawn signs and literature, a metaphor that hardly needs further
explanation. Nonetheless, the massive function room at Suffolk Law
School's Sargent Hall was jammed for today's debate, and, judging
from the high interest level, that might have even been the case had
organizers not provided box lunches.
The more I get into Alex Zaitchik's excellent Glenn Beck expose, Common Nonsense, the more I've been thinking about Boston's pathetic second tier gasbag, Howie Carr. It must hurt to know that no matter how much ignorance and manufactured populism he vomits, he'll never have a fraction of the flag waving slobs behind him that nationally syndicated frauds like Beck enjoy on radio and television.
