Today we joined the country in stomping, spewing and demanding some action. Sure, the wheezing attempt at making the Benghazi murders and attacks into a conspiracy is crap. Now though, wingers have some substance to their hysterics.
We dealt with the IRS focus on Tea Party-type groups seeking tax protection and on the DOJ collecting […]
OK, politics fans, it’s long-time US Rep. Ed Markey for the Dems against venture-capitalist Gabriel Gomez for the GOP. They won the MA special-election primary to replace US Sen. John Kerry.
We did drift into the First Suffolk MA Senate (squeaker win by Linda Dorcena Forry over Nick Collins). Unlike the Markey/Gomez contest, she should […]
We careered from one issue to the next to another today in a recap of trends and events. For the promised links:
ABC and WaPo released a large poll revealing the solid majorities across demographics in support of same-sex marriage
The Republican National Committee claimed to detail what they learned from losing the last election (and 5 […]
We’d figured on double speculation — interim appointment to very recently ex-Sen. John Kerry and the winner of the special election for his last two years. Our Gov. Deval Patrick beat us out by naming the interim (William “Mo” Cowan) a few hours before the show.
We stuck to who’s likely to run on Dem […]
An annual U.S. Senator election seems to be our thing in MA. We’re about to do it yet again. John Kerry looms as Secretary of State, opening up an interim appointment, followed by a bruising battle to fill the rest of his term (through 2015).
We’ll join the speculatiion on who’s in or will be for […]
A day before President Obama reveals the gun-violence-reduction proposals from VP Biden’s panel, we surmised. Atypically, Mike was more optimistic than Ryan, specifically in thinking that an assault-weapon ban was possible. Ryan noted that the House Republicans could block anything they wanted to and that they would here.
We talked about gun registration and tracking and […]
Our President found himself and fertilized his courage. We chat up some of the evidence, most recently two of his three cabinet picks are gutsy — Hagel for Defense and Brennan for CIA, if not Kerry State. He is, in campaign lingo, fired up and ready to go.
We talk about what this might foretell for […]
Mostly pleased but also disappointed at this week’s (thank God, at last) fiscal deal. Yeah, yeah, we know all the pending fights — debt ceiling, demands for services cuts, sequestration, and more — in the next three months. Yet just before the Prez starts his second term, he’s showing the skill, guts, and leadership he […]
