    (Snip)Not all is entirely well in the Commonwealth, though. In cities and towns far removed from the shiny new towers of Cambridgeís Kendall Square or Bostonís Seaport District, the economic picture looks much dimmer. Meanwhile, cracks are showing in the edifice of state government itself. The Department of Children and Families, the Probation Department, the state crime lab, the board that regulates compounding pharmacies, the state Labor Departmentís unemployment system, the Health Connector website ó voters have come to know all these terms as shorthand for the kind of bureaucratic failures that make them doubt state governmentís ability to help...

    Elizabeth Warren: The Rich White Manís CandidatePosted By Daniel Greenfield On October 15, 2014 @ 12:58 am In Daily Mailer,FrontPage | 7 Comments The political establishment with its clouds of consultants, advisers and fixers rarely bothers glancing out of its enclaves of wealth and privilege to take stock of America. Instead it taps at the virtual pages of the paper of record on the appropriate app, nods its head at having its prejudices confirmed and moves on.And that is why the Elizabeth Warren political express remains convinced that a wealthy professor and government insider who occasionally says all the approved...

    In recognition of his support for marriage equality in Massachusetts, Republican gubernatorial candidate Charlie Baker on Thursday was endorsed by GOProud, a Republican marriage equality advocacy group. Baker, who recently released a web video highlighting his break with the national Republican Party on the issue of gay marriage, said he was proud to earn the group's endorsement. ďIím grateful to be endorsed by GOProud, and share their support for free markets and respect for individual rights that includes marriage equality," Baker said in a statement. "The work of organizations like GOProud, and the pro-marriage equality candidates they support, is critical...

    Sucker=xx=xx Bad news: After Republicans spent $400,000 in sickening ads to hijack John Kerry's old Senate seat, a terrifying new GOP poll shows an incredibly close race: Markey (D) 45, Gomez (R) 44% And the election is in JUST TWO WEEKS away I know you're a top President Obama supporter, so you need to know that the next 36 hours are critically important for the President. If we lose this seat, Mitch McConnell will be a step closer to: -blocking every single sensible gun law -completely repealing Obamacare -tearing apart Social Security and Medicare President Obama needs you to finish...

    Of course, the problem with urging people to use a hashtag like this one is that thereís a way to measure your adís effectiveness. And this one isnít doing that well. If you donít count current Markey campaign and other Democratic political staff, political consultants, abortion-rights groups that are backing Markey, journalists writing about the ad, and people mocking the hashtag, about 13 real honest-to-goodness people have actually tweeted or retweeted this hashtag in the ten hours or so since it was posted online.
  • Conservatism Lost a Battle, But Not the War!

    Dear Patriots. We lost! Obama-supporter Gabriel Gomez beat Conservative Republican Michael Sullivan in the Massachusetts primary. Gomez will be the Republican candidate in the special election to fill the U.S. Senate seat vacated by John Kerry. Without repeating all of Gomez's two-faced actions again, I will inform you that Gomez endorsed Obama for president, contributed to his campaign and vowed to support Obama's agenda on a host of issues. Yes, you heard me correctly; and this guy claims to be a Republican. Michael Sullivan was the real-deal character-driven constitutional Conservative in the race. But as I stated, Sullivan lost. Our...

    Mayor Thomas M. Menino is expected to announce tomorrow that he will not run for re-election ó passing up on the possibility of a historic sixth term amid ongoing health woes ó sources tell the Herald. Already the cityís longest-serving mayor, Menino is expected to make the announcement at a press conference tomorrow afternoon. Menino, 70, was hospitalized for two months last fall with a variety of aliments, including a blood clot, a spinal fracture, and diabetes. Speculation has swirled since then about whether the mayor would run. So far, only City Councilor John Connolly has announced for the race....
  • Why Scott Brown might run for MA governor, not Senate

    Itís not often an ex-senator gets a shot at his old job just months after losing. So Scott Brown is widely expected to jump at the chance, running in a special election for John Kerryís seat that presumably will become vacant within weeks. But there are compelling reasons for Brown to pass on what would be his third Senate campaign in four years ó and heís thinking long and hard about them. Topping the list: In 2014, he could run instead for Massachusetts governor, a job that Republicans have had much more success winning and keeping, as Mitt Romney can...
