Joe Boncore wins 1st Suffolk and Middlesex Special

A pity. Comment from progressivemax: "As you alluded to, this election is only temporary. One of the Progressives can run again in the General Primary Election on Thursday (yes Thursday) September 8th. Hopefully only one Progressive will run, preventing a split vote. It still will be a tough race since Rizzo’s votes are more likely to go to Boncore, than a progressive." - promoted by Bob_Neer

The prize for the best (and possibly only) word rhyming with "Lumpenproletariat" goes to jconway. (And thanks to Wikipedia for this definition: "Lumpenproletariat is a term that was originally coined by Karl Marx to describe the layer of the working class that is unlikely ever to achieve class consciousness and is therefore lost to socially useful production, of no use to the revolutionary struggle, and perhaps even an impediment to the realization of a classless society.") - promoted by hesterprynne

Commenter centralmassdad observes: "The MA Democrat platform in a nutshell: we support the election of Democrats so that Democrats can be elected. Other than that, we really have no reason to exist." - promoted by Bob_Neer
