My latest for Anger and Loathing in Boston reports on the dueling Union/Tea Party rallies in Boston: a peek:

As the day progressed the Union forces got more and more agitated particularly when Radio Host Graham handed out fake “doctor of love” notes parodying the events of Wisconsin. His presence seemed to drive the union people wild, even stranger was the reaction to State Rep Rich Bastien (R Gardner) who mingled with the crowd to try to hear them out but was greeted by Nazi salutes by a self-proclaimed Jewish woman in between vulgar epithets.

The final irony of the protest is on display here:

I’ll have a post with all my videos from the rallies up before I leave the house today.

Michael Graham has been following the McGovern campaign and what he is hearing is unbelievable:

I like to think I’m a jaded, cynical observer of Massachusetts politics, but when I read Rep. Jim McGovern’s claim to support cracking down on illegal immigration, I literally gasped out loud.

McGovern told the MetroWest Daily News that he “wants improved border security, visa monitoring and workplace enforcement and a streamlined process for coming to the country legally.”

Remember this is Massachusetts, the big liberal state that supposedly wouldn’t care about an issue like this, the state that the NYT insists there is no chance for any Republican to win in congress this year and McGovern is suddenly talking tough on immigration? But it gets better!

After repeated Internet searches, I couldn’t find one. So I called McGovern’s press office and asked them to send me a record of any such votes. Among other things, his office sent me – no joke – McGovern’s co-sponsorship of the House version of the McCain/Kennedy amnesty bill of 2007.emphasis mine

So he is counting supporting Amnesty as a vote to enforce immigration, and he expects the people of Massachusetts 3rd district to fall for that? There are 10 colleges in Worcester Mass. alone, do you think that some of them might be able to read his record?

If that’s not a reason to support Marty Lamb in ma-3 I’d like to know what is?

And Yes he was once a democrat, don’t forget, so was I, so was he and so was this guy.

Nice to have you visit. You can find my tea party videos under the tag Voices of the Tea Party and also at youtube at My Youtube Channel.

You can find my interviews with Michael Graham here and here

Update: BTW I disagree with Michael on this. If it was a two man Race Michael would be right on the money, you can’t attack the voters when people KNOW their neighbors. This is what is hurting democrats nationally when hitting the tea party. In a three man race his only chance it to get that 35%-38% of the electorate that is far far left energized that hates the tea party.

He is only playing the only card he has.

Who was on stage twice yesterday once before the Plymouth County GOP straw vote and once at the end. Our clips here are from is speech before the vote:

I had to split this into two parts because it ran just over 10 min for YouTube and the other embed programs are iffy on wordpress.

Lucky for me I am a bit faster than my waistline looks because I almost missed him at the end of the event, but managed to chase him down as he was leaving and he was kind enough to come back in long enough to talk to me. Hey when you’re nice to Da man in Da Fedora he bumps your videos ahead of the line.

The Don’t get cocky advices has been coming from everywhere. It’s good advice.

Update: Welcome Michael Graham fans, come take a peek around. My latest examiner column talks about the changing fortunes of the GOP. Over the next few days I’ll be posting more interviews to go with my slideshow from the Plymouth Event so keep an eye. If you are tea party fans you should check out my coverage of the Twin city tea party, and my first interview with Michael in April before boarding the Tea Party express and covering the 4/15 DC rallies. Next week I will be in Washington for Blogcon and will be covering the 9/12 marches in person. Hope to see you there.
