Mike Capuano will by far make a better Senator than Martha. He gets it. Thereby making his constituents the winners.
Think what he could do in the Senate. An institution where some Somerville savvy can go a long long way. Like it has for him the House.
Just think of how pissed John Kerry will be with Cap on the scene. Cap knows Kerry is useless and will work for the people of Mass with that in mind. He’s in it alone. By his second year it will be obvious to everyone that Kerry is still the junior senator. John Forbes will be begging for a cabinet position.
However, it probably won’t happen. Attacking Martha because at one time she favored the death penalty will change 10 votes at most. Is that the best your people can come up with Mike?
That said, Martha won’t be a bad senator, however she won’t deliver the good like Cap and might be more interested in being a national political personality. That won’t endear hers to other Senators. I hope Martha is better than that.
Mayor Menino’s next term will be sad to watch. We will watch him go down like Humphrey Bogart in the Caine Mutiny
[More after the flip -- Ed.]
Mayor, you are pushing your luck. The emperor will be completely naked in 2two years. You should have gone out on top.
I’m curious if Mike Flaherty lost any real vote numbers because of the Yoon partnership. We do know the Yoon people will show up and vote. And ,the council candidates people will be coming out to vote and many don’t like the mayor.
However many are also jealous. “Why should Mike Flaherty gets this thing? My guy should have it.” So they’ll vote for the mayor so their guy can get in four years.
George “Half-Man” Regan is one smart bastard. He’s like the neighborhood drug dealer. He gave me a taste of publicity and now I am jone-zin. First the Insidae Track. Then a Howie Carr column, then a story about his client Ernie Boch, Jr offering a bounty for my true identity well boasting he will have Howie “terrorize” me “every afternoon.”
Then, because of Half-Mans brilliant P.R. campaign I got my name in a Joan Vennochi column. Quote and all.
But now, the spigot has been turned-off. This is pure hell. I need my fix. Only one thing for me to do. Put “Half-Man Regan” on the pay roll. Grab that monkey, place it right on my back and chase that high again.
BTW. Congrats George “Half-Man” Regan. He is just the second public figure to receive a nick name here. The first of course is Dan “Search and Avoid” Conley. .
Are you making calls for your City of Boston candidate or Senate candidate? If so, and you believe Howie Carr has shown a long and continued pattern of indecency then please print out this list of his sponsors and give them a call and let them know how you feel. There aren’t many names and should be nothing after calling hundreds of voters.
Are House and Senate members aware that the vote taken to replace the Attorney general should a vacancy occur is done by private ballot? That’s right. You can tell the Speaker you did what he wanted and then vote they way u want. Awesome!
Dan Conley should convene a grand jury on the massacre the Bruins served on the Carolina Panthers Saturday night. Holy Moly. The panther trainer had to run out to the ice with a towel to soak up blood five times. FIVE TIMES! Once in a game is a bonus for fans.
Phil Kessel who?
One more thing.
The difference between Ernie Boch, III and Howie Carr is EB3 is a wise ass. Howie Carr is a fresh prick. Huge difference.
