BOSTON (AP) - Tea party-affiliated candidate Mark Fisher is one step closer to the Republican primary ballot for governor.

On Monday the state party officially certified Fisher, who went to court to try to get on the ballot after he said party officials violated their own vote-counting rules at the party’s state convention in March to block him.

A little news from my own state. The Powers That Be wanted to appoint milquetoast Charlie Baker.

Well, the people will now have a say!

The Dems are not happy about this. The GOP-e is positively livid over this I’m sure. It seems the biggest enemy of the tea party is the GOP/GOP-e.

The republican party played its usual shenanigans at the convention. Their worthless candidate lost four years ago and will likely lose again this year. He, like Tom Dewey, wants to be anointed the republican nominee, and then be anointed Governor.

But in a democratic republic, it doesn’t work that way.

An “Indy” if you will, for people to vote for to say metaphorical stick it in your ear. Oh how delicious! Imagine a cadre of “cranky” voters who vote for him to send a message, just because. That would be nice....

I was raised there myself and it doesn’t get much more crooked or corrupt than the politics in Mass. Between the welfare for the illegals to over taxation and an over abundance of police....not much resemblance of the state I once was proud to be part of. I loathe driving through the wretched state now.

I hope Fisher steamrolls Baker. And then whatever POS the Dems put up. Let the Games begin!

Fisher for governor. Fine, got that.

But here we are in a critical election year and I haven’t hear a PEEP about ANY candidates running for Congress on the “right” side of the ledger.

Is anybody even trying to add some red to our depressingly blue Congressional delegation here in the Bay State? Please tell me that at least ONE candidate will challenge Nikki the Dunce in my home district!

Come on, folks! Let’s hear some conservative NOISE this year!

The only person I’ve heard of is liberal republican/independent Richard Tisei, who is a continual loser running against corrupt whatshisname.

I’m in Quincy and haven’t heard about anybody running against Lynch, who’s the most conservative democrat in the delegation.

Massachusetts is the epitome of a RED state (Blue is Conservative, kids - don’t use the media newspeak colors).
