    But if this is just on YouTube, he has even bigger problems: there have only been 14,800 views!  Considering most of those are probably viewed outside of Massachusetts, Markey's message is not exactly going viral.  Dancing dogs get more than that in an hour!

    I haven't been following this race.  What's the problem with Markey that he can't break away from a GOP challenger?

    •  Simply put, he's a terrible candidate to run (1+ / 0-)

      a state-wide race.  He's always had the luxury of running in deep-blue, well-educated suburban districts, and doesn't play well with working-class and rural voters.  As repugnant as Stephen Lynch may be from a progressive perspective, he was probably the better choice to run a state-wide race.  I still think Markey will win (I don't think the state party will allow themselves to get Coakleyed again), but it will be a closer race than it should be.
