showcased all throughout the Town Hall Tea Party Era a few years ago,
Massachusetts is hardly immune to right-wing buffoonery. Our crackers
are every bit as clueless as flag-waving imbeciles elsewhere; as for
elected officials, until recently we had a Republican in Washington
who tossed Wall Street's salad in the Senate steam room every chance
Let's be honest: it wasn't really a fair fight.
Anyone who follows #mapoli knows that the dean of the Massachusetts political twitterati is the Phoenix's own David S. Bernstein -- the man responsible for such runaway hits as #mapoliwithanimals (now a popular Tumblr, as well), #ScottoSawIt (after Scott Brown was fooled by fake Bin Laden death photos), #HowCambridgeShouldPickAMayor, #FakeMATown, #ReplaceItWithMitt, and #FakeMAPoliExitPolls.
Our roving photogs were out and about on election night; this is what they saw.
Don't hate me because they want me. You, they could take or
leave, but me, they are totally hot for. My name is Scott Cardwell and I live
in a swing state. Okay, it's not Ohio, but it is Virginia. And as I write this,
with two days remaining until the election, we are considered a "coin toss"
state. So, me and my fellow Virginians are being hard-sell, heavy petting,
under the shirt, over the bra, wooed to within an inch of our lives.
If NBC talking head David Gregory, the moderator of last night's
US Senate debate between Republican Scott Brown and Democrat Elizabeth Warren,
did not watch a recording of the first debate, then shame on him for being
lazy. WBZ's Jon Keller, the first time around, admirably covered what Gregory
wasted a good 20 minutes of valuable air time probing.
As promised, KARL ROVE's political action group CROSSROADS GPS is spending over a half-million bucks to flood Massachusetts airwaves with this new 30-second slop-bucket of a campaign ad (see below), which attempts to smear Scotto Brow's surging Senate opponent ELIZABETH WARREN by handcuffing her to the Occupy movement.
