    I’m doubtful that the conciliatory mood which some of our elected politicians are now displaying will last for more than a month or so. ” The Greatest Generation ” could teach not only our elected representatives but the populus of this country a thing or two about coming together to face daunting challenges.

    Bump gets elected and doesn’t know it’s Illegal to claim 2 residents for Tax kickbacks, Tierney gets elected, doesn’t know his Old lady is laundering brothers money, Patrick gets elected for doing nothing. there is no hope for change in this state. Give up and enjoy you whipping, the people like Obama’s Auntie are the Real Winners in this state!!!!

    I’ve got a question for the Spin-o-Meter… I keep hearing that it was the “unions” behind the GOTV operation on the Democratic side. I don’t know what the situation was in Boston, but my wife is an SEIU member here in Metrowest and we got NO push at all from them. All of the GOTV efforts here were launched from the regular town Democratic party apparatus. The SEIU never once asked for us to join any campaign effort.

    My wife’s employer, which does a lot of DPH contract work, urged us to vote against Question 3. But that request came from management, not from the SEIU.

    There are 29 cities and towns in Barney Frank’s district. It is interesting to note that 18 of the 29 communities voted for Bielat. But Brookline , Newton and New Bedford came to the rescue and Frank squeaked through with 54% of the total vote. Have you ever looked at the strange shape of Barney’s district? it is a worst example of “Gerrymandering” I have ever seen. It guarantees Barney’s reelection despite the fact that 62 % of the communities he represents voted for Bielat.
