Another Sad Moment For Lynnrockets

Please have some patience with us for a few days. We’ve suffered another loss today. As many of you know, I lost my mother last month. Unfortunately I was forced to put my 15 year old dalmation, McKenzie to sleep today. It will take a little while to recover from this loss. I apologize for the inconvenience.

Here is a video clip of the Beatles playing their White Album song, “Martha My Dear”. A lot of folks do not realize it, but it was composed by Paul McCartney and was written about his English sheepdog, Martha. I would like to dedicate same to my McKenzie now.

God bless my ‘Kenz, I love you…

Your pal, Kev.

Bostonians Are Now Down On Scott Brown

The bloom has come off the rose. Bostonians are now turning against recently elected Republican Senator Scott Brown in droves. This became apparent on Tuesday when the clothing challenged Brown submitted an editorial which was printed in The Boston Globe. The opening two paragraphs are as follows:
BY ELECTING ME to the US Senate, the people of Massachusetts sent a clear message: Washington needs to get its priorities straight. Voters believed I would be the best candidate to fight for jo9bs and a stronger economy, keep our country safe, and serve as the 41st vote against the health care reform legislation debated in the Senate.

After my election, Washington politicians began an aggressive push to bend the rules and force their unpopular health care bill on an unwilling nation. They went into secret negotiations to make up their own rules, and eventually found a way to circumvent the will of the people by using the reconciliation process to ram through their health care bill. For the last year the American people have been shaking their heads at the closed-door meetings, sweetheart deals and special carve outs. It has been a very ugly process, and caused many Americans to lose faith in their elected officials in Washington. (The rest of the editorial can be read here)
Little did Scott Brown realize that his editorial debut cracked open a hornets’ nest of dissent against him. Below is only a small sampling of the negative comments left by Brown’s constituents on The Boston Globe‘s website. Please enjoy witnessing how the tide has quickly turned against Massachusetts’ newest and nudist Senator.
Hello, Scott. I knew you when I worked at the old Hyde Park Cooperative Bank. I hope you enjoy your short-lived senatorial job.The GOP, of which you are a part, is no longer the Grand Old Party. Now it is the GAP, God Awful Party and I’m sad that you misinterpreted the voters who put you in the Senate. As Mclaughlin says as he signs off the Mclaughlin-Group TV show … BYE BYE.

We elected you, pumpkin, because you look good naked and your opponent couldn’t spell Massachusetts.

Try not to read anymore into it.

Talk about spin control. This op-ed could have just have easily been written by Boener, McConnel, or any other of the Republican right. Brown is failing to prove that he could be the independent, moderate voice that he ran as. The repealing acts are doomed to fail and are little more than a political ploy. Republicans simply want to keep negative energy about healthcare in high gear until November.If he really cared he would focus solely on cost containment.

He is farther to the right then the majority of his constituents, representing only a fraction of the US electorate. Talk as much as you want about the last election, it doesn’t change the fact the MA is one of the most liberal states. His victory was a combination of unbelievably good timing, a poor opponent, crazy amounts of national support and good looks. If Brown keeps this up, I can guarantee this senator won’t win reelection.

Scott, you’ve got two years to polish your resume. You can follow in Romney’s footsteps: criticizing your home state to the dittoheads down South, then going off into the sunset.

Should have mentioned that I work with the recruiters from these medical device companies and none of them are going anywhere. Scott, you’re just a miserable liar.

Senator Brown, I didn’t vote for you. My candidate lost. Nonetheless, I expect that you vote with the Republicans, that you’ll vote in the way the people who elected you would want you to vote. And as that happens, I won’t call you a tyrant. I won’t call you a fascist. I won’t compare you to Hitler or claim that you’re attempting to turn the United States into a dictatorship. Because, you know, I understand that I lost an election. I understand that there will be another election. In the next one, I’ll have the opportunity to vote you out of office. I hope that a majority of people will also take that opportunity.

I’d like to know if Scott Brown has yet to actually read the legislation he condemns. He admitted last week he hadn’t.

I don’t see any indication that he’s done anything except receive his marching orders from Boehner and McConnell. Now there’s independence for you.

I never liked Kennedy’s personal life BUT he voted the way I wanted him to 98 percent of the time. You do not represent any of my views. And watch Rachel Maddow, she calls your bluff too.

Scott Brown…serving the second shortest term as a MA senator !

You lost Scott on the HC bill, now stop whining! The Repukes had 8 years and did nothing! Actually they did something double our national debt from approx. $6 trillion to $11 trillion!

Scott….. Are you really this stupid? Let me spell it out to you. If you want to repeal the health care reform bill you will need a majority of 2/3 in both the house and the senate and then you would need to have a presidential veto. The likelyhood of this occurring ranks up there with Haley,s comet smashing into earth before you’re banished back to your truck.

The health care reform bill is law. You lost!!!! Get over it!! Where do we find these people?

I don’t know which is a bigger laugh, you or the column you wrote today. We know you’re a novice in congress, but really! Your own GOP, with a majority in congress and a Republican president, used reconciliation 31 times to ram home tax cuts to the tune of $2 trillion+ dollars, money put into corporate pockets that could have helped a lot of Americans get affordable health care. And you sit there at your computer, singing the garbage glories of these corporate usurers you hack for. Get a life, please– Preferably out of electoral politics. President Obama and Nancy Pelosi did a big favor for those of us without insurance– the unprivileged, unchosen elect, whom you and your cohorts ignore on a daily basis in congress.

I present a challenge to all the republicans that are against the health care reform bill because it is socialism. Are you willing to make a pledge that you will not participate in any government subsidized programs? Let start with public transportation then we have public schools, interstate highways, social security, medicare, medicaid, policeman and fireman and on and on and on. So if you really do not want socialism do your part by fighting back and pledge not to use any federally funded government services. Lets not be hypocritical and choose which services are and which are not deemed socialism.

A sure way to defeat in the next election — fighting yesterday’s battles. You lost. Move on. You’re a freshman senator in a minority party, and your election actually caused HCR reform to pass.

Another whiner who in two years will be a commentator on Fix News….

Brown, your fifteen minutes will be up soon. You do not represent Massachusetts with the falsehoods you are attempting to spread about the health care law. Over time the popular provisions of the law will come into effect and the exaggerated cost estimates and doomsday scenarios will fail to materialize. You and everyone else who’s based your career on refusing people access to health care will be finished.

Good Riddance.

Scott Brown, you are a pawn of the Republican Party. You voted for the Romneycare in Massachusetts then flipped-floppped and voted against Romneycare writ large on the Federal level. Now, like a right wingnut you believe you can repeal the bill. Hey, news flash: Obama can veto it…did you forget that part of the constitution?

Hey Scott:

How does it feel to be between a rock and a hard place?? This election was GROSSLY misled and many of our new Senator’s voters are now embarassed that they voted for a tea party candidate – yup- the w h o r e d out the intellegent state Massachusetts, one of the healthiest, wealthiest, most educated states to donors from the ignorant red states.
Oh, and we heathens here in Massachusetts, gay marriage and all, still have the LOWEST DIVORCE RATE in the nation. While the bible-thumpers get married for the third time and look down their noses at us craaaaazzzy liberals.

This ain’t Alabama, Scott, and you are going to be history very soon.

Scott if you want to be in Washington, you need to be the Senator of all Massachusetts citizens. Yes you won a majority but it was not a landslide and I will just bet that no one knows that better than you. So, on that basis, you need to be a bit left of center in this state rather than a little right of center. Still center but not so much right, because for many of us who do vote regularly, that will make you wrong.

BTW, anymore anti-Massachusetts OP-ED pieces like this one and your defeat will be assured. Frankly, I did not like it when Mitt Romney used Massachusetts as a laugh line in his presidential campaign and I won’t like it any better if you speak ill of our home state either. Maybe you’ve been in Washington too long already.

I note that after, what?, two and half months you still do not have an E-MAIL address for your office in Washington. Might not be your fault but it is very annoying. I have some things I want to talk to you about.

In WAY over his head, Brown thinks he’s important. He couldnt be less relevant – the newest member of a minority party that just got steamrolled on the most importante vote in decades. He refuses to condemn the haters with their Hitler flags, and thinks we’re gonna reelect him? Right.
He’s gonna last about as long in the Senate as Nutty Professor Joe Kerrigan lasted as Sox manager.
41 – what’s that your IQ?

Senator Brown- You had your chance to be bipartisan. You failed. No Republicans came up with anything at all to contribute to the health care debate. Now you call it a fight. Stop fighting. Start working. This country doesn’t need any more mouthpieces. We have Sarah Palin. You were elected to work. Seriously, time to put aside the party and focus on the people. You should know that my family, hard working middle class people, immediately get a benefit from this health care legislation. At NO cost to the government. So, first, know what you are talking about when you start talking and second, work. JUST GO TO WORK!

So Scott you were for health care reform when it was called Romney Care, bit you are against it (the same general plan) now that it is called Obama-Care.

Anything else you want to clear up for us? You make about as much sense as congressman Lynch – Another phony who will be out of office next time around.

Mass. has wised up to that fact that you are about as independent minded as Sarah Palin. Fool me once…..

One and done for Mr. “41”

Senator Brown, you were elected to be an independent voice, but your actions in the brief time you’re served have betrayed you.

You have already spent time away from Washington campaigning for others. You are on the record as saying you hadn’t read the latest health care bill and were reserving judgement, yet as soon as the story hit the airwaves, within hours your were telling us your mind was made up. Either you are the world’s fastest reader or, most likely, your GOP masters yanked your chain to bring you back into line.

Actually, Senator Brown, you received massive TeaParty campaign donations by promising to be the 41st vote against health care. You weren’t elected to represent the Tea Partiers. And as to parlimentary procedures, of the 23 times reconcilliation has been used in the last 30 years, at least 14 were by Republican Congresses. And what is a filibuster but a parlimentary procedure. You still frequently sound like the Wrentham town official you started out being. This bill isn’t perfect, but it does begin to address some of the problems. And don’t forget, Senator Brown, that my tax dollars have been paying for your (excellent) health insurance for YEARS, since I live in your former state senate district. So if you’re entitled to state/federal funded health care, and voted for Romneycare, why can’t the uninsured elsewhere get a hand? Oh, right, because your party simply wants Obama to fail.

Brown lacks intelligence and gravitas to be an effective senator. A while back, when Brwonie was in the state house, I lived in his district. I met him at a charity event. I shook hands with him. There was nothing between his ears but wind gusts. He couldn’t hold a conversation or even get a complete, cogent sentence out of his mouth. And now to have him as one of my state’s Senators in DC is truly frightening.

Hey Scotty Brown – If you are so interested in jobs, then why don’t you get to work on this issue instead of wasting time with the right wing moonbats trying to repeal a law that would require O’Bama to veto his own bill. (Not going to happen)
Uh, Scott, the reconciliation process is part of “the rules” so there were no rules that were changed. And that “ramming through” you keep parroting the Republican line about, that was, uh, a majority vote of the elected Senators. As for the will of the people, when Barack Obama ran for office he promised to get this bill passed and he was elected. As for jobs, businesses cannot afford to hire people because of the high cost of health care. As for your cost figures, they are refuted by independent analysts. Enjoy your two years.

He is right, the fight is not over. It is over when we get Brown out of the Senate. He will be history in 2012.

Scott Brown:

You lost all credibility when you went on Fox News and questioned whether or not Obama was an illegitimate child/born out of wedlock.

You were elected on a fluke. A perfect storm of Coakley campaign ineptitude and uneducated far right sloganeering and imagery.

Since when does a beat up pick up truck and working class clothes (expensive fake ones at that) symbolize such high office?

You are a lame duck. You thought you would shake things up. Face it. You are meaningless piece of dust.

Face it, you are a poor sport and you have lost. And you deserve, you arrogant man. You wrote “’41” after your name assuming you were in some way important.

Hopefully, we will squeeze you out of Massachusetts and the neocons will spit you out for not going far enough to the right.

Give it up dude, attend Congressional sessions and move on.

So much for “Mr. 41st vote against health care!”

Enjoy your 1/3rd term. For somebody who was supposedly elected as a “referendum on Obamacare!”, you sure were irrelevant in the process.

And the centerfold gets his marching orders.

Next election cannot come soon enough.

Wait…I thought Scott Brown was for RomneyCare? When did he flip flop?

Once he’s dethroned, he’ll be all by himself
Scott will moan: “They wanted someone else!”
