    who put himself through law school and then used his law degree to represent unions.  Exactly which Brown voters find that a compelling story?

    I prefer Markey over Lynch, but it is very clear to me that the DK Front Pagers have been given orders to slam Lynch.  Lynch probably does not represent the state of MA well, but he is a very good fit for his Congressional district (which is why he should stay there). He's being treated like a Republican here, which interestingly makes his comment about the establishment being against him pretty true.

    Gentlemen, you can't fight in here! This is the War Room!

      I have never had any direct contact with a DK front pager in my life but I've gone hard after Lynch. He is easily my least favorite Democrat in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, and an entirely unsuitable Democratic nominee for U.S. Senate. He's spent 20 years winning elections with dog-whistle appeals to the racist, anti-gay, anti-choice, anti-environment, anti-progressive element of his home base.

      Now he's flat-out lied about his "no" vote on the ACA, and flip-flopped on marriage equality and choice to run left, while continuing to engage in the hippie punching that's worked so well in the past.

      Republicans...think the American standard of living is a fine thing--so long as it doesn't spread to all the people. And they admire the Government of the United States so much that they would like to buy it. Harry S. Truman

      will generate antagonism from most liberals and Democrats on his own, no marching orders needed.

      Not to mention he's "pro-life," supported the invasion of Iraq, etc.
