  •  The only reason Bob Massie didn't win (0+ / 0-)

    would have to have involved kidnapping him... Otherwise he would have beaten Warren 99-1. But in the real world...
    Elizabeth Warren was given nothing... The GOP in their stupidity turned her into a star... Then turned her into a nemesis... Then she ran for the Senate when no other top tier candidate would.

    There was no other candidate in that race who could had made it a competitive primary...What they did was a formality.

    •  I don't see it... (0+ / 0-)

      Massie had been out of politics for several years thanks to health issues, and he'd lost in the primary during his one previous attempt at office.  Why do you think this time would have been different?

      •  It's a running joke on DKE (3+ / 0-)

        Back when DKE was Swing State Project, there was this Massie supporter who, to a comical degree, was pushing for Bob Massie and explaining how awesome he is.

        When that happened, we started making it into a big joke, that Massie is some unstoppable politician who would easily win all 50 states if he ever ran for president (except he is so awesomely gracious that he refuses to run simply because he doesn't want to humiliate his opponent).

        We know that Massie is pretty much a nonentity, but we like to play around with it.
