  • 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...

    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...

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...

    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...

    Democrats are all in a twitter over the recent revelation that Mitt Romney likely paid an annual average of only 15% of his income in taxes. They ignore the likelihood that he also likely paid an average of 10% of his income in annual tithing to charities as required by his Mormon faith. Democrats are banking on the premise that this sort of class envy rhetoric might help them in a year when the public has become conditioned to blame capitalism for the economic woes that have beset the country these past three years. As a presidential candidate, how does...

I had him on my radio show last night before the polls in New Hampshire closed, and I tried to get Newt to explain what’s gotten into him. He seemed surprised that some people might be taken aback by his...

    Sometimes, when I’m talking to Ron Paul supporters, I feel like I must have been out of the room when they started ladling out the Kool-Aid. This isn’t a campaign, it’s a cult. You don’t have to wear a tinfoil hat to be for Ron Paul, but it helps. Maybe he should change his name to L. Ron Paul. Four years ago, most Ron Paul supporters had this goofy, stoned quality about them, like Hempfest attendees. They’d tell you how, like, George Washington used hemp in the Continental Army, dude, and if it was like totally good enough for the...

    I’m glad I thought to ask Mitt that question about Uncle Omar – that headline looks great on the Drudge Report this afternoon. “Romney: I’d Deport Obama’s Uncle" It was a no-brainer. I was just surprised he didn’t know who I was talking about at first. I understand that he wouldn’t read Barack’s narcissistic memoirs, but hey, Uncle Omar’s been in the Boston papers for months now.

    A mug shot is worth a thousand words. And these BPD mug shots from Occupy Boston tell us quite a story, namely, how greasy and dirty you’ll look if you stop bathing for weeks at a time. Until they were run out of Dewey Square, the howling-at-the-moon hippies were protesting the fact that they can’t find jobs. And it is true that the vast majority of those lugged early Saturday morning are unemployed. Imagine that — how could a potential employer not be bowled over by, say, Jonathan Landry Kenyon, age 19, a drifter from Freedom, Pa. Look at that...

The FBI — which vowed confidentiality to the tipster — also could take a hit if it comes out that the agency was involved in the leak, experts say. The FBI did not return calls yesterday. The woman’s identity was made public yesterday in a Boston Globe story on Bulger’s life of the lam. Her background, photo, husbands, career...
