Howie Carr live thread. (Interesting post on Scott Allen Miller's blog, which is linked to WRKO, today: "Echoes of Cellucci?
"I have become aware of a story about Governor Deval Patrick that is about to break. I can't share it with you now because it's embargoed but I so want to. It's the first scandal of his administration. It's not a huge one, though, and it will be explained away by his sycophants and spinners as an honest mistake. Even if it is, will Patrick do what's right to make proper amends for this supposedly honest mistake? Stay tuned (now that Patrick has convinced you to tune back in)..."

Today's Howie Column
There's an auction for Celtics tickets in "The Howie Carr section" for the Feb 9 game.
What are they, masochists?
I think it's time to start a dossier on Gov. Deval Plastic, because when he's ready to get bigger than governor of the Commonwealth, people will need to know what a huckster he really is. From the clinton DOJ, to corporate token, to the jail birds he set free, to his unregistered sex offender brother, to his unpaid taxes, to his loans on that mansion in the Berkshires, to his plastic campaign rhetoric, to his encouraging the Solons to violate the constitution by refusing to vote on the Marriage Amendment on virtually the eve of his inauguration, to this tidbit offered by Scott Miller. It's a start, anyway.
breaking--Kerry will not run!
But he'll just change his mind again next month.
I'd like to run the POS.......right off the fantail.
OK moonbats now take those damn Kerry bumper stickers
off your cars!
"Senator John F. Kerry plans to announce today that he is bowing out of the 2008 presidential race, and will instead remain in Congress and seek reelection to his Senate seat next year, according to senior Democratic officials.
"Kerry, a Massachusetts Democrat, plans to say he will remain in the Senate to recommit himself to efforts to extricate the United States from the war in Iraq. His decision to stay out of the presidential race reflects a realization that he would have had an uphill climb in capturing the Democratic nomination, given the other party heavyweights who are already in the race, according to the officials, who spoke to the Globe on condition of anonymity.
"Kerry plans to make his plans known with a speech on the Senate floor this afternoon, and is taping a message to e-mail his supporters to explain his decision.
"Kerry, the party's 2004 presidential nominee, has been acting like a 2008 candidate virtually since he lost to President Bush -- traveling the country, spreading money to other Democratic candidates, and keeping in place a campaign infrastructure that was ready for another presidential bid.
"But according to Kerry associates, the senator's plans changed dramatically in the fallout of his election-eve ``botched joke" about the education levels of US troops. The harsh reaction to that incident -- from many Democrats as well as Republicans -- displayed to Kerry the extreme skepticism within his own party about whether he should mount another run.
"And, with polls giving front-runner status to Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton of New York and Senator Barack Obama of Illinois, Kerry realized that he would face formidable adversaries in the quest for the Democratic nomination. Clinton, Obama, and a host of other candidates have been busily hiring campaign operatives and signing up key fund-raisers in recent weeks."
"On Iraq, Kerry has emerged as a fierce war critic after initially supporting the invasion of Iraq. He has spoken of his war opposition in a similar vein to his efforts to bring the Vietnam War to a conclusion in the early 1970s.
"Kerry's announcement freezes in place the various Democratic aspirants to his Senate seat. Massachusetts hasn't had a vacant Senate seat since 1984 -- when Kerry himself won his first six-year-term -- and several members of the state's all-Democratic congressional delegation have expressed interest in running for the Senate if Kerry retired."
>>Kerry's announcement freezes in place the various Democratic aspirants to his Senate seat. Massachusetts hasn't had a vacant Senate seat since 1984
Sorry Mahhhty. Sorry Bahney. Sorry Tierney...sorry Deval (in
case he had thoughts of going for an "open seat")
I think I asked you this question but I'm confused. When the Red Sox land at WRKO will they pre-empt Rush?
Durint the regular season, no, though there will probably be some during spring training. As a rule, daytime weekday games and Wed. nights will be on WEEI.
Press release via WRKO:
>>The 2007 season initiates WRKOs new 10-year partnership with the Red Sox. The station will air all regular season games with the exception of Wednesday nights and weekday afternoons, which can be heard on sister station WEEI 850 AM. In addition, WRKO will carry 15 Red Sox Spring Training games from Florida beginning February 28 against Minnesota.
Here are the games that will wind up pre-empting Rush,
unless WEEI winds up with them instead:
Monday, Mar. 5 - Sox vs. Dodgers 1:05p City of Palms
Wednesday, Mar. 7 - Sox vs. Mets 1:05p City of Palms
Thursday, Mar. 8 - Sox vs. BlueJays 1:05p City of Palms
Wednesday, Mar. 14 - Sox vs. Pirates 1:05p City of Palms
Friday, Mar. 23 - Sox vs. Orioles 1:05p City of Palms
Tuesday, Mar. 27 - Sox vs. Pirates 1:05p City of Palms
Thursday, Mar. 29 - Sox vs. Drays 1:05p City of Palms
...depending on where you are you might still be able to
pick up Rush during those few times.

Howie Carr, Dec '04:
>>Memo to John Kerry voters: It's time to peel those Kerry bumper stickers off the backs of your Volvos. It's also time for you - or your butler - to take down the campaign yard signs from in front of your mansions. What part of ``It's over, you lost!'' do you pukes not understand?
I started seeing MORE Kerry stickers after he lost.
People getting them on in anticipation of '08, of course.
Scandal? Patrick took money from somewhere he shouldn't have?
Sure, A dem in MA is above the law. We all know it.
First hour: "The end of the line for John Kerry (at least for prez)"
"At least Al Gore may win something (nominated for best documentary, A Convenient Lie)...what's Kerry gonna win?
WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 24
Senator John F. Kerry plans to announce today that he will not run in the 2008 presidential race, and will instead remain in Congress and seek reelection to his Senate seat next year, according to senior Democratic officials. What would you like to say to the junior senator from Massachusetts?
Michael Barone of U.S. News & World Report will join us to talk about last night's State of The Union address. Check out Michael's book The New Americans: How the Melting Pot Can Work Again.
CHUMP LINE! Call 617-779-3469 and leave Howie, Sandy or Happy a message about today's stories or anything else buzzing around your bonnet and we may play it back on the air!.
Former presidential candidate and junior senator from Massachusetts John Kerry has announced he will not run for President in the 2008 election....
Are you sorry that we will not have John Kerry to kick around anymore?
Terry McAwful will be on Friday--ask him about it...
LOL -- as I recall it, there wasn't a "harsh" reaction. It's just that after the "HALP US, JON CARRY" sign made the internet -- and the news -- he was a complete laughing stock (as he should have been all along of course; it just got harder to ignore!)
I have a woman in my town who has a license plate that says "ALGORE". Pathetic!!!!!
John Kerry's Bad Rap
Anyone catch Kerry's speech in the Senate? Howie said that that's where he was announcing he wouldn't run (is that normal? to announce a non-candidacy on the Senate floor?), but he also gave a "history lesson" on the split between Shiites and Sunnis (?!) -- the rest was apparently too boring even for Howie to make fun of. What's the story?
A license plate??? Talk about a true believer! (Did you notice whether she carries around an inflatable raft in case global warming/rising sea levels come upon us suddenly?) ;-)
Ted K doing a lot of Wizard of Uhs cuts today!
I'm just hoping that I wind up parked next to her somewhere. I would love to have a dialog with her.
I get Rush on a CC station [pair]. They have preempted him for the minor league games.
A dialog, hmmmmm? Bet you could sell tickets to that one! LOL!
happy 60th birthday Col. Hunt! (5 yrs older than Howie)
I can't seem to connect with either windows or winamp.
Yes I checked and both of those are down but Real Player
connection works (real player is freeware, though the
owner is a big lib...who lost big money on Air America!)
The Real Player connection working fine (they're in ad break right now and just ran promo for Ingraham)

Moonbats mourn Kerrys choked-up exit

Now will the moonbats finally peel the old 2004 Kerry-Edwards bumper stickers off their Volvos?
What a shame that we wont have John Forbes Liveshot Kerry to kick around anymore! From Do you know who I am? to Do you know who I was?
Somewhere, Manny Ortiz weeps. Who will the windsurfing caucus back now? In Green Bay, theyre draping Lambert Field in black crepe. What happens to the magic hat he wore during ... yes, Christmas in Cambodia? Can he get back to training to run again in the Boston Marathon, not to mention hunting that 24-point buck that he claimed he stalked down on the Cape.
Americas Gigolo is out of the fight. Who will be K-Feds role model now?
John Kerry did a 180, and now well never see his DD 214.
Another thing well never see again: his Harley hog. Now he can go back to his real motorcycle roots - the Ducati Paso 907 IE.
No more will he see him out on the campaign trail at midnight, announcing the late scores from the American League in his true-fan style: Yankees 2, Red Sox 3.
The rumors started last weekend, and the key development was the appearance of Liveshot at a wake on Sunday for the mother of an elected county politician north of Boston. When John Kerry shows up at a wake in Malden or Medford, you know hes running for reelection to the Senate, although the way the story was told to me, some of Kerrys oldest habits were on display outside the funeral home where the wake was held.
It was cold, damn cold, and we were all waiting in the line to get inside, the local pol explained. And then that !@#$ %& Kerry shows up - and he cuts the line!
Look for more from Howie Carr in tomorrows paper.
