  • Slippery slope for ‘slick’ Rick

    Boston Herald ^ | 9/25/11 | Howie Carr
    I never thought Rick Perry was going to be the next Ronald Reagan. But who knew he’d turn out to be the next Mumbles Menino? At least the governor of Texas picked the right place to turn into a pumpkin — Orlando, home of Disney World. That GOP debate Thursday night was a political NASCAR race. All the fans got what they came for — a massive crack-up on the far turn. Remember two weeks ago when everyone said Rick Perry was ready for prime time. It turned out to be a “monstrous lie,” to coin a phrase. Here is...

    Howie thread for the week starting with his Sunday Herald column. Just before 10 am now, as what is now Tropical Storm Irene heads through the northeast. Here on Boston's North Shore I can tell you from our Eyewitness Weather studio (where I look out the window and witness the weather) that it's light rain, not really windy. (It may pick up later but the storm is weakening though I'm sure it's a lot worse west of here)

    Boston Herald ^ | 8/26/11 | Howie Carr
    Mitt Romney vs. Rick Perry — this primary season is going to be class warfare at its most entertaining. It’s barely even started, and already you hear callers to Rush Limbaugh saying, “Rick Perry dittos.” And the dying broadsheets are already ramping up to defend Romneycare, trying their damnedest not to trip over anybody in Massachusetts who’s had to pay a $2,000 fine for the crime of having no dough. And it’s not even Labor Day yet. So let us consider the profound, irreconcilable differences between these two men. Rick Perry goes to rodeos, Mitt Romney goes to Rodeo Drive....

    (K.D. of Cambridge writes): "I work in a two-person office with my boss. He listens to Rush Limbaugh and other conservative talk shows while we are in the office and when we are driving in the car to a job site. I am finding it harder and harder to listen to those shows, which I find increasingly offensive. In the car, I generally can tune it out by bringing something to read. Would it be rude to bring a personal music player to the office and listen to it with headphones while I’m working, explaining that I find listening to...

    “Do you, Patches Kennedy, take this woman, Amy, to be your lawful designated driver?” Another Kennedy wedding on the Cape today — big night for package (liquor) stores and state police sobriety checkpoints. But somehow it doesn’t seem the same — so many things seem to be missing from the traditional Kennedy wedding. For starters, a Catholic church. Didn’t the Kennedys used to get married in Catholic churches? Caroline at Our Lady of Victory in Centreville, Maria Shriver at St. Francis Xavier in Hyannis? Now Patches gets hitched at the compound. Forget “celebrating” Mass, these nuptials will be “officiated” by...

    Staring blankly into the camera, this is mob boss James 'Whitey' Bulger's mugshot following his arrest after 16 years on the run. Police in Orange County finally arrested the fugitive on Wednesday alongside his long-term girlfriend Catherine Greig. Now detectives in California plan to quiz Bulger over claims that he may also be the infamous 'Geezer Bandit'. An elderly robber who looked remarkably similar to Bulger has never been caught despite carrying out as many as 17 bank raids over the past six years. Police believe Bulger may have carried out the robberies in Orange County - where he is...

    Legendary Boston crime boss James "Whitey" Bulger, who has been on the run for more than a decade, was arrested Wednesday in Santa Monica, multiple law enforcement sources told The Times. Bulger, 81, has been the subject of several books and was the inspiration for "The Departed," a 2006 Martin Scorsese film staring Leonardo DiCaprio, Matt Damon and Jack Nicholson. Bulger fled Boston in late 1994 as federal agents were about to arrest him in connection with 21 killings, racketeering and other crimes that spanned the early 1970s to the mid-1980s. He was arrested by the FBI inside a building...

    Fugitive on run for 16 years wanted in 19 murders, inspired film 'The Departed' LOS ANGELES — James "Whitey" Bulger, a notorious Boston gangster on the FBI's "Ten Most Wanted" list for his alleged role in 19 murders, has been captured near Los Angeles after living on the run for 16 years, authorities said Wednesday. The FBI tweeted his capture along with his girlfriend, Catherine Greig, early Wednesday morning. Santa Monica Police Sgt. Rudy Flores said the agency informed him of the arrest.

    Mitt Romney got beaten up by a girl yesterday. OK, so it’s not PC to call the former governor of Alaska a girl, but you know what I mean. Sarah Palin big-footed Romney big-time, not to mention Rudy Giuliani, who last night was in Dover, N.H., where he couldn’t have gotten arrested even if he’d tried. But for Palin, yesterday was mostly about putting a pie in Mitt’s face. As one of my listeners put it: “Romney has RomneyCare. Palin has no PalinCare. Advantage: Palin.” Poor Mitt. She hit him over the head like he was one of those giant...

    Here is what Mitt Romney should say at his official announcement in New Hampshire on Thursday: I’ve been running for president for almost 20 years now, but this time I’ve got a real shot, and I can sum up my edge in one word. Boring. That’s what I am, boring. I’m Dudley Do-Right, a straight arrow. I’m not Arnold Schwarzenegger or John Edwards, if you follow me. This year, boring is good.

    Here are the first three words Willard Mitt Romney needs to say in Michigan tomorrow, but never will. “I screwed up.” The only way for Willard to move on, get some closure, etc. on this grand fiasco of RomneyCare is to finally man up and admit that in 2006 the Democrats in Massachusetts beat him like a rented mule. Acknowledge the undisputable truth that, thanks to his raw political ambition, we have tax-paying American citizens being fined $2,000 for the crime of having no dough, to quote The Band. Oh, and by the way, illegal aliens still get free health...
