Breaking down winners and losers in congressional redistricting
By Howie Carr | Sunday, November 13, 2011 |

Let’s look at the winners and losers in the congressional redistricting.

First, Barney Frank. He thought he was a winner until he read the fine print. Supposedly he was telling people at the State House, as long as you give me Brookline and Newton, I’ll take Utah, by which he meant conservative GOP-leaning towns.

Alas for Barney, someone took him at his word. He now represents the Utah of Massachusetts — the Attleboros, Plainville, Wrentham, Franklin, Bellingham, Hopedale, Walpole, etc., etc.

Another bunch of losers: the limousine liberals of Cambridge. While the black precincts of the People’s Republic remain in U.S. Rep. Mike Capuano’s “minority-majority” district, most of the Beautiful People are now represented by ... Eddie Markey. Where did you say he’s from, Chauncey? Malden? Never heard of it.

I mean, you spend $4 million out of your trust fund to buy a mansion on Brattle Street and instead of being in the fashionably cool minority-majority district, you have to drive to some place called Winthrop for a candidates’ night. It just doesn’t seem fair.

But Eddie Markey is definitely a winner. He’s been bragging that he represents a district that voted for Marsha Coakley over Scott Brown last year. In other words, his constituents are as clueless as he is.

U.S. Rep. Steve Lynch came out on top, with a district that snakes out of Southie through white Boston precincts into even whiter suburban towns. Remember Rhodesia? Most of his black precincts in Boston, Randolph and Milton have been dumped into Capuano’s minority district. Needham, his biggest moonbat town, was annexed by Barney. Of course, the ethnic cleansing required some odd gerrymandering — east of Washington Street in West Roxbury is Capuano-land, west is Rhodesia. Somewhere, Ian Smith must be smiling.

U.S. Rep. Bill Keating thinks he’s a winner, with his new Cape/Bristol district, but he now represents two types of communities –— those he’s never been to (Bristol) and those he’s never won (the Cape). GOP Sheriff Tom Hodgson from Bristol may run against Keating, but Hodgson might be better off waiting until 2014 when New Bedford and (part of) Fall River aren’t getting out the vote to protect the welfare state.

U.S. Rep. Jim McGovern (D-Caracas) was another big winner. The moonbats’ moonbat picked up Amherst and Northampton. Now, if only Hugo Chavez’ medical condition wasn’t so dire. ...

Mike Capuano got what he wanted, except for the fact that Ayanna Pressley topped the ticket in the Boston City Council at-large fight last week. Eventually, uneasy will rest the white head that wears the crown in the minority-majority district.

The Legislature did U.S. Rep. John Tierney no favors. He lost semi-moonbatty Bedford and picked up Billerica and Tewksbury, which are most assuredly un-moonbatty. Plus, he’s got his brother-in-law’s pesky trial continuing in federal court.

First, Tierney said it was his jailbird wife who was just sitting at home in front of her computer, managing her fugitive sibling’s millions in ill-gotten gains.

Now it turns out Tierney was in fact hanging around his brother-in-law’s gambling palace on Antigua. What’s Tierney’s new story, that he was blindfolded and handcuffed at gunpoint and put on a plane to the Caribbean?

Ex-GOP Senate leader Richard Tisei, you’ll never have a better chance than 2012.
