Teabaggers didn't limit their favors tonight to the Delaware and New Hampshire senate races (although they were yummy and thank you very much). In an open House seat rated as a toss-up by many pundits, Republicans nominated a town selectman, Jeff Perry, over the former state treasurer, Joe Malone. Perry is not a Scott Brown type, although he is very good-looking (hmmn, is THAT what the Tea Party is all about--a kind of weird eroticism? Palin, O'Donnell, Bachmann, Brown, Perry--not bright but ..... i
Perry is far too conservative for Massachusetts, even the 10th district (Cape Cod and the Islands). Perry describes Health Care Reform Act as a step toward socialism, opposes cap and trade, does not support gay marriage, is pro-life and pro-death penalty and loves him some 10th amendment.
Democrat Bill Keating, the district attorney of one of the three counties comprising the 10th CD, is a liberl Democrat with excellent credentials, including a stint in the state senate where he visibly opposed the bullying tactics of senate president Billy Bulger, brother of the notorious and elusive Whitey Bulger.
This race is no longer in the toss-up category, folks, and it could have been--in a Malone-Keating match-up.
