  • Mitt’s got your number, Marco Rubio

    Boston Herald ^ | 4/6/12 | Howie Carr
    Can we all agree that, whatever else he is, Mitt Romney is a numbers man? And that’s what his pick for vice president is going to come down to — numbers. Mitt wants to count to 270, as in the 270 electoral votes he needs to win. No need to make his decision anytime soon, because it’s a long, long way to Tampa. But right now I’ll go with the conventional wisdom and say it’s U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio. First, the number 29. That’s how many electoral votes Florida has. John McCain got 173 electoral votes, but after the 2010...

    When will this Republican war on women end? Strippers are women too, you know. And now comes this report of the EBT [Electronic Benefits Transfer] Card Commission, suggesting that perhaps the state should comply with new federal laws and stop providing the layabout community with free lap dances. This is practically a hate crime. Bad enough they’ve already banned EBT cards at package stores. They sell limes at packies [package aka liquor stores], and single moms need limes, you know, to ward off scurvy. It’s for the children. One recommendation was to “eliminate cash benefits and require POS (point of...

    Cheryl Jacques is back in the news, this time accused by the State Ethics Commission of throwing her not-inconsiderable weight around in an attempt to make her brother-in-law’s dental bill disappear. Basically, the ex-solon is accused of asking the eternal question, “Do you know who I am?” although in Fakes’ case a more precise inquiry might be, “Do you know who I was?” First she told the dentist’s receptionist, and then the dentist himself that she was — drum roll please — a “judge.” An administrative judge, in Industrial Accidents. A judge who makes $97,000 a year, compared to a...

Deval Patrick asked this morning on network TV: “Gov. Patrick, what exactly are you and your pint-sized lieutenant governor trying to cover up by refusing to release his cellphone records from the morning he wrecked a state car at 5:20 a.m. while driving 108 mph, after which your scandal-ridden state police began a massive cover-up as your minion gave a series of preposterous explanations, each one more unbelievable than the last?”

    If your name were Joseph Patrick, your candidacy would be a joke. That is of course a paraphrase of what Eddie McCormack said to Ted Kennedy back in their 1962 Senate debate. But it’s just as true now of Teddy’s great-nephew JoJoJo Kennedy. So what if he doesn’t have any qualifications. He’ll drive off that bridge when he comes to it. Actually, he does have a record, and that’s the fact that his name is Kennedy and he doesn’t have a record, a police record that is. For a Kennedy, that’s quite a record to run on. Somebody said yesterday...

    Howie Carr Show thread for the week starting with his Sunday Boston Herald article about the mayor of Boston, prone to malapropisms ("together we can beat prostrate cancer"; "jumbletroms" meaning Jumbotron). The outcome of the big game tonight will influence how Patriots fans refer to it tomorrow: It'll be either "WE won" or "THEY lost". Hopefully either way we won't see "a few knuckleheads" acting like lager louts out in the streets of Menino-land tonight. Actually I'm sure we will.

    How profoundly America has changed since January 2009. I was pondering this the other night during the State of the Union address. Did you know that our elite military units like the Navy SEALs are now examples of America at its absolute finest? Why, wasn’t it just a few years ago that Sen. Dick Durbin was comparing these very same troops to the Khmer Rouge and Joe Stalin’s Red Army? What used to be Dick Cheney’s hit squad is now a beacon of freedom. But now of course the president is a Democrat. When Durbin spoke a Republican resided in...

    Howie Carr thread for the week starting with his Sunday Boston Herald column, "All Goes Wrong For Dudley Do-Right". Excerpt: (more below)-- Mitt Romney just can’t close the deal. Twelve days ago, Mitt was the toast of the GOP. This morning he’s just toast. Twelve days ago, he’d won a “historic” two in a row — Iowa and New Hampshire — and he had a double-digit lead in South Carolina. Now it turns out Mitt didn’t even win Iowa.

    Say what you will about Mitt Romney, but here are two words you’ll never hear him utter: “Open marriage.” I raise this only because I’ve noticed something lately about another of the Republican candidates, namely Newt Gingrich. Women don’t like him. I mean, they really detest him. This problem predates last night’s “Nightline” interview with his second wife, Marianne, who proved once again that hell hath no fury like a woman scorned. Good luck avoiding those ABC sound bites today, now that they’re all in the public domain. Whether or not either of his first two wives was on her...
