  •  Ah, the man who beat Honey Fitz, and here's how: (11+ / 0-)

    Fitz had a "bimbo eruption", and JMC found out about it. He booked the Howard Theatre (since demolished and notorious) and took out ads in all the Boston papers announcing something to the effect:

    "Rep. James Michael Curley will give a series of talks called "Great Lovers in History: From Cleopatra to Toodles".

    "Toodles" was Honey Fitz' showgirl lover.

    He never had to give the speech, as Fitz pulled out of the race altogether citing "poor health". But I wish he had given the lectures. Curley could TALK.

    You know you're a yellow dog Democrat when you admire James Michael Curley.
