I'm going to focus on Big Mass for this post.
I said yesterday I would've supported Ben Affleck in the primary and seriously considered him in the general (and if Scott Brown weren't the nominee from across the aisle, Ben would have absolutely received my vote in the general). If you don't realize how bad things are now that Ben's said no to a Senate run, CBS reports Edward Markey has filed papers for the seat.
How old is Ed Markey? He seems to have spent at least 100 years in the House of Representatives.
And he's nothing to get excited about. Now if Delahunt came out for this seat, I'd be thrilled. He was a fighter in Congress. But Markey? He's a lot like Barney Frank -- big talk on MSNBC, sell you out in the halls of Congress. Bill Delahunt is actually older than Markey (Delahunt is 71) but he is a fighter and that's important.
Markey's just a joke. The other names don't make me feel better. Michael Capuano is nothing but Nancy Pelosi's little bitch boi and they tried to ram him down our throats before (but the state went with Martha during that primary). So I'm just not real eager to see this primary.
If Ed Markey's the idea of 'new' and 'nvoel', we are all in trouble.
Tomorrow night, I'm blogging about last Friday's episode of Fringe. Don't drop by if you're waiting until Saturday to see it or you will get spoilers.
