Getting ready for the Red and Blue Political Horror Show

Noticed on Twitter a new person tweeting me about ma-10 who is pushing the narrative of Jeff Perry as bad cop et/al.

the user is named TeapartyUsa1 and has under 30 followers. Most likely a paid tweet to go after republicans in the last weekend of the campaign as his tweets are directed to suggest that the GOP dislikes the candidate.

It’s a cheap but inexpensive trick and an easy way to make $8 an hour but what else can they do:

With less than a week to go before November 2, it appears that Keating’s campaign is going with a “duck and cover” strategy and hoping the liberal base will deliver on Election Day (sound familiar?). In the past two weeks, Keating has pulled out of three debates, citing “other commitments.” He is probably wise. His past performances have done little to inspire confidence.

At a breakfast forum hosted by the South Shore Chamber of Commerce on Tuesday, Keating twice said he would not have voted for the stimulus package. “I would not have supported that,” he said. “I would not have supported that particular stimulus package.” Later that day, his campaign released a statement saying that Keating “misspoke”: He would have voted for the stimulus, though he would have preferred “something more targeted to rebuilding our infrastructure.”

Keating has also flat-out refused to say whether or not he would support Nancy Pelosi for House speaker in the event that the Democrats retain their majority. When asked during a debate in Plymouth earlier this month, Keating, faced with frustrated audience members shouting, “Yes or no?” remained steadfast in his waffling, saying he would “keep an open mind.”

Meanwhile in ma-6 Tierney ducks and covers from his wife’s federal guilty plea

The Republican went after Tierney for not disclosing to the government millions of dollars that were in an account his wife managed for her brother, Robert Eremian. Eremian was indicted in August on charges that included racketeering, money laundering and operating an illegal gambling business.

“The congressman takes great pains to look at my financial disclosure report and to say that I have $1 million in Bank of America stock,” referring to information Tierney has publicized. “That’s my wife’s money. The congressman knows more about my wife than he does his own.”

In case you’ve forgotten the details:

The wife of Democratic incumbent Congressman John F. Tierney pleaded guilty today to charges she helped cover up her brother’s $7 million ownership stake in a Caribbean gambling operation by falsifying his federal tax returns.

And in ma-4 Sean Bielat raises money from the people who know Barney best:

Documents filed with the Federal Elections Commission show that in September, the Republican Bielat outraised Frank in the congressman’s hometown of Newton, $31,249 to $13,785.

He has also out-raised him overall.

And mind you these are the seats that the media is noticing. Democrats are pouring incredible amounts of money into ma-1 and ma-2 supposedly safe seats while Jim McGovern is in the fight of his life in ma-3 and Nikki Tsongas worries in ma-5.

If only democrats had tens of thousands of people to canvas today in Massachusetts to help out, oops sorry those guys are at the John Stewart Rally today.

The Big Red Wave will be a lot of fun.

Oh and expect the Wave is to hit va-9 too.

A lot of people are breathless on Cook’s moving Barney Frank from “likely democrat” to “lean democrat”.

Anyone who has been actually paying attention to this race on the ground has seen for weeks that all the momentum has been Sean Bielat way.

Anyone looking at Bumper stickers in the state over the last two years noticed a change.

Anyone looking at the competitive REPUBLICAN primaries and a VERY successful write in campaign with little or no state GOP help knew that something was happening.

Anyone who has been doing calling and canvasing in Massachusetts knows that unenrolled (Independents) are breaking Republican all over the state, and 51% of the people in this state are registered “unenrolled”.

The Big Red Wave is coming and it will wash over this state up and down the tickets, only the considerable number of 3rd party candidates (have they had some help?) put some of the republican wins in doubt. I’ve been making this case for a month and people have discounted it.

It’s going to be a long night for the donkeys and Massachusetts is not going to provide a whole lot of comfort.
