THURSDAY NOVEMBER 29
Tempers are raw between rival Republican presidential candidates Rudy Giuliani and Mitt Romney today after a lively debate that included what the Romney camp called a nasty attack by Giuliani. Who do you think won the debate?
Bestselling author and Television’s most photogenic talking head Michelle Malkin will join us to talk about the democratic plants in last night’s republican debate.
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!
Two members of the board that appointed Judge Kathe Tuttman now want her booted from the bench, charging that former Gov. Mitt Romney did not inform them of her involvement as a prosecutor in a botched case that freed a child rapist. We will speak with fellow Governor’s Council member MaryEllen Manning about the probabilities of this action.
Carr’s lucky this Sandwich pair isn’t after his lunch:
“A Cape Cod woman is suing the National Enquirer, claiming that two stories it published about a supposed “love child” with Senator Ted Kennedy were untrue. In the suit, filed Tuesday in US District Court, Caroline Bilodeau-Allen of East Sandwich says that “virtually every critical fact which [the Enquirer] reported is false and defamatory.”
“The Enquirer published two stories early last year - on Jan. 30 and Feb. 6 - alleging that Kennedy and Bilodeau-Allen began dating in 1983, before Kennedy’s divorce from his wife, Joan, was finalized, and that Bilodeau became pregnant in 1984. (Bilodeau-Allen was unmarried at the time and is referred to as Bilodeau in the stories.)
“The tabloid further alleged that the senator, then in his early 50s, begged Bilodeau, who was in her early 20s, to have an abortion. The Enquirer also claimed that he gave her expensive gifts, including a black Mustang convertible, a purebred Shar-Pei, and $15,000 cash in exchange for her silence.
“As a result of the stories, the suit claims, both Bilodeau-Allen and her son have had their reputations “ruined.” Though he’s not named as a defendant, the suit singles out radio host Howie Carr for “mocking Christopher for his ‘love child’ status” on his talk show. Both Bilodeau-Allen and Christopher are now on antidepressants and under the care of psychologists, according to the claim.”
It might be that the LibRat’s don’t care if they’re caught jacking with debates.
Yup...more on this at http://radioequalizer.blogspot.com
“TOLD YOU SO!
“Chastised Then, Rush Proven Right Over YouTube Debacle
“Since the debate aired, it has emerged that questions were planted by Democrat operatives, including declared supporters of Dem presidential candidates.The resulting fallout has proven a huge blow to CNN’s credibility, since it co-sponsored and aired the forum. Even notorious media suck-up and rival cable talker Joe Scarborough thinks CNN knew about the plants in advance. One audience member who asked a question about gays in the military even turned out to have an official role in the Clinton campaign!”
Inquiring minds wanna know!
ahh, so Rick”rabbit”Miller is getting a team to manage eh?
”Gee officer, that’s a funny lookin chauffeur's cap you're wearing
Remember Whitey "just happening to be" behind an armored truck that hit a bump, and some bags of money fell out?
There was an accusation made of Guiliani (that, or
something related) at the debate last night and he
quickly denied it (”well first of all, the story’s
not true”)...something that had come on on Drudge
the day of the debate.
Aw jeez, you mean that actually happened?
that's probably where Drudge caught wind of it.
And surprise, surprise, he was recognized by some witnesses...
whew! I bet those witnesses kept a low profile and some REAL tight buttcheeks for quite a while.
Gotta run! catch Ya later
Since it caused a traffic jam, I would imagine that the police could put 2+2 together from missing money and Whitey’s driverless car.
So, what was the story that Marine Medivac guy was talking about before they cranked up the tunes and hit the dump button? Something about Billy Bulger and a $500k payoff?
It can’t be 25 State street. That wasn’t very “alleged”, according to “The Brothers Bulger”...
‘course the Midget wasn’t indicted, much less convicted...
no idea—I heard that too...Howie said something like
“We can’t prove that...”
Stop the insanity by electing judges
By Howie Carr | Friday, November 30, 2007 | http://www.bostonherald.com
Heres a modest proposal: Lets start electing judges in Massachusetts.
I know, itll never happen. The powers that be have a vested interest in the dysfunctional system that keeps throwing up, literally, the likes of Kathe Tuttman, Maria Lopez, fill in the name of your own least favorite black-robed megalomaniac hack - the list is endless.
Here is how a lawyer now gets to be a judge in Massachusetts. He/she is either a prosecutor, working for relatively short money by legal standards, or a private attorney who is starving to death in the Dreaded Private Sector.
The wannabe judges are all looking for the same thing, and it isnt justice.
They want early retirement - a lifetime appointment, with a guaranteed pension from day one, thanks to the infamous involuntary disability provision. Starting pay: between $129,694 and $151,239.
Talk about feeding at the trough. Massachusetts judges have what is quite likely the cushiest job in the world - 30 working days vacation, 20 sick days, five educational days, five personal days and 15 federal, state and county holidays.
Thats 15 weeks off, year in and year out.
To score his judgeship, the shyster begins contributing money to politicians, usually candidates for governor, who nominate the judges. Sometimes, if hes really hungry, the lawyer gets his parents, his in-laws, and his secretary to max out to the local member of the Governors Council, which has to rubber-stamp the governors nominees.
I say, lets eliminate the middlemen. Instead of giving money to candidates running for office, let the would-be judges go on the ballot themselves. OK, maybe most of them would run unopposed, like the legislators do. So what? At least the threat would be out there. Why do you think illegal aliens dont yet pay in-state tuition at state colleges? Because solons were petrified of retribution.
Does anyone think Judge Tut-tut is worried, or even embarrassed, because her liberal idiocy resulted in the murders of two newlyweds? One of her pals, the chief justice of the so-called Superior Court, says Tut-tut is now living every judges nightmare.
Au contraire. The nightmare every judge dreads is not being a judge anymore, not having all those court officers parking their car and kissing their rear ends.
By the way, perhaps youre wondering which pol Judge Tut-tut hitched her star to? The answer is, Robert B. Reich, the moonbat candidate for governor in 2002. She gave him $50 on April 4 and $100 on Sept. 6. Its the thought that counts.
Thats what Mitt has to answer for in this whole sordid mess - how did his staff miss the contributions to Robert Reich?
But Mitt didnt care all that much about judges. He knew who was applying for the judgeships - the kind of bust-out lawyers he wouldnt have hired to fight a parking ticket for him when he was CEO of Bain Capital.
Mitt preferred prosecutors, on what we now know is the erroneous assumption that prosecutors are not social-planning liberal do-gooders, as Dapper ONeil would say. He didnt want a Willie Horton on his watch. Instead, he gets Daniel Tavares.
Some people are trying to put a stake through the heart of this grotesquely corrupt system - every year Holyoke police Chief Anthony Scott files a bill for the election of judges.
And for his trouble, Chief Scott and his bill get treated with less respect than anti-spanking advocate Kathleen Wolf. Im not kidding.
Meanwhile, Gov. Deval Patrick is rounding up the usual suspects. The case of Judge Tut-tut, a former assistant Essex County district attorney, will be investigated by Kevin Burke, the former district attorney of Essex County. The traditional book will be thrown at her - a comic book.

voted against” remark). Sponsor? ...Log Cabin Republicans.
I can't keep up with the other thread.
