3. The BMG kiss of death. Blue Mass Group endorsed Gloribell Mota in the state rep race. Slaughtered! They endorsed Tim Schofield in the Allston-Brighton council race. Crushed! Earlier this month they endorsed Tim Flaherty for state senate — pummeled! And Jamie Eldridge for US Rep — Demolished!
Uh … yeah, we sure can pick 'em. Just wait 'til we get casinos: BMG says put it all on
red black — baby needs a new pair of shoes!
Every once in a while, some nice person tries to blow smoke up our whatzis and says “Oh, but you're so influential!” And we always get a lot of flak here over our endorsements. And they're fun, and we like doing them, and we like encouraging those who we think are good candidates. But I would bet that we move only a handful of votes — particularly when there's more than one good choice. The action isn't happening online, it's happening in the neighborhoods. And there's usually someone here who knows the race better than we do, and tells us so. (Striker57 would seem to be on a roll, e.g.)
Anyway, the less said about The Mighty BMG, the better. It ain't about us three — QED.
