Fear And Loathing 2010: I’m In Love With Massachusetts, I’m In Love With The Radio On

13 October 2010 @ 20:48

My previous two reports on Stacy McCain’s trip to the Bay State can be found here and here.

-Last evening I talked with Stacy, Roxeanne de Luca, and DaTechguy as they were holding a special meeting of The VRWC: Boy Howdy Branch in Stace’s room at the Marriott in Newton, Massachusetts.  Amidst the pleasantries, I wanted to get a sense of what they’ve been seeing there and what they’re sensing about the situation since they have had their ‘boots on the ground’, as it were [in Roxe’s case, I think it was stilettos — a man’s allowed to dream, ain’t he?].

Anyway, all three seem to feel that the situation in the bluest of blue states is favorable to the cause of The Restoration.

If you know anything about the Land Of The Bean And The Cod, you know the fact that a number of seats may turn Republican is incredible.

Without breaking any confidences, I can tell you that the three Happy Warriors are in good spirits.

-A short while after I got off the phone with the Boy Howdy Trio, Stacy posted a quick report on the fact that King Barack The Unready is coming for a visit to The Commonwealth on Saturday to help his friend, Governor Deval Patrick [aka: Obama-Lite], who is seeking re-election.  Word is His Bleeding Majesty will appear in Newton, which is in Bwarney’s District.  If Barack The Unready can work his mojo like he worked it for Martha Coakley against Scott Brown, then we may pick up a Governorship.

One wag commented at this post:

Do you think he’ll visit his Aunt Zeituni, while he’s in town?


DaTechguy also posted on this story here.

-Early this morning, Stacy posted an article over at The American Spectator on Bwarney Fwank’s struggle to get re-elected as he faces the first serious challenger he’s had in over a quarter of a century [former Marine and young businessman Sean Bielat].  A highlight:

“Mr. Bielat, please stop interrupting me,” Frank said during a Monday debate on Boston’s WRKO radio, after the Republican had objected to one of Frank’s numerous distortions. Before the debate was over, as Jonathan Strong of the Daily Caller noted, Frank complained eight time about being interrupted. It was as if Frank thought he was back at Harvard — where he taught undergraduate course in the 1960s — and his GOP opponent was an impertinent sophomore.

Bielat yesterday summed up Frank’s attitude: “‘Don’t talk. I’m talking. I’m the congressman. You’re here to listen to me.’ That’s the way he’s approached his constituents. That’s the way he’s approaching this race. And that’s the way he was approaching me [Monday].”

For nearly three decades, voters in the 4th District have evidently been happy to re-elect the biggest know-it-all in Congress, but 2010 is not just any mid-term election year. Voters everywhere seem to have lost patience with being lectured by politicians and, like Bielat, they’re in a mood to interrupt.

-In a companion posting over at The Other McCain, Stacy delves deep into the psyche of the rotund refuse-spewing Representative [if that doesn’t cause him nightmares, nothing else will]:

Scapegoating other people for your problems is a psychological defense mechanism that allows the narcissist to resolve his cognitive dissonance, to wit: “I think I’m wonderful, but not everyone seems to share this perception and I need to distract them (and myself) from evidence that I’m not as wonderful as I’d like everyone to think I am. Therefore, someone else must be blamed for my errors, and anyone who calls attention to my flaws must be ignored or shouted down.”

Such is the psychodrama being played out in the 4th Congressional District….

Look…I’ve lived in New England my whole life.  I remember when Bwarney worked for Mayor Kevin White during the days of forced busing in the early 1970’s.  He has been on my radar since 1969 [I will admit I was tempted to gouge my eyes out a few times because of this, but then I wouldn’t be able to look at the ladies].  He has always been an arrogant jerk of a human being who, because he is a reliable Leftist, has been able to get away with his act for four decades.  I can assure you that every word of what Stacy wrote is spot-on.  Fwank is a menace and a bore.  It’s about time he retired for medical reasons: the voters have finally had enough and are sick of him.

-Later on, he posted about a controversy that has erupted in the neighboring state of Maine in one of their Congressional races.

-This afternoon Stacy posted a report on the interesting race going on in MA-10, which is an open seat.  Former police officer and Republican nominee Jeff Perry is running against Norfolk County DA Bill Keating.  DA Keating is the proverbial hack politician who has been around forever.  Mr. Perry is a TEA Party favorite.  The Dems have launched a smear campaign against him.  Stacy has the details along with a video interview, one of Jeff Perry’s ads countering the smear, and audio of a conversation between Michael Barone and WRKO radio talk show host Howie Carr.

-DaTechguy has been hanging with Stacy these past few days and, surprisingly, it looks like he will live to tell some tales.  For now, we’ll just have to contend ourselves with his well-done, boots on the ground reporting.  Here’s a highlight from his most recent posting:

What we found were people who were volunteering for phone banks and a mood that reflected that old Scott Brown feeling.

Can’t fight the feeling.

-Check out these other two from DTG, here and here.

-DTG also writes for and his latest article is up.  A highlight:

I was speaking with a prominent Tea Party member in the eastern part of the state she has been doing the heavy work of going door to door on days off to talk to voters, passing out literature and pushing her candidates. The report I got was astounding.

Over and over doors were about to be closed until the voter heard the Magic word “Republican”. When the voter heard that word, doors were opened, literature accepted and thumbs up given.

My paisan even got an Instalanche out of the deal.

A restraining order waiting to happen.

    “The home of the bean and the cod.
    Where the Stacys talk only to Roxys,
    And the Roxys talk only to God. “

    Hmm, as Alice said in Wonderland, some of the words seem slightly changed.

    LOVE the caption. Too funny.

    Wonderful round-up of what’s been going on in the Bay State – and how a few crazy bloggers are adding to the fun.

    As for stilettos: sorry to say, but I was sporting a pair of super-cute ballet flats yesterday. Left my knee-high girl-power boots at home.

      Roxe: How’d you know I liked knee-high girl-power boots better than stilettos. Mrs. B. had a pair when I first met her and we were dating – one the reasons I knew she was The One.

    Wore heels tonight. Ran into RSM at a bar. Think he was too drunk to notice footwear, so you can’t ask him for details.
