So, I’m out holding a Warren sign with several others today at Chelmsford/Stevens, maybe 10 minutes before Art Ramalho arrived, and some gimoke slows rolls the intersection to yell out, “Fuck her! She’s a liar!”
Talk about being a prime candidate for Mike Hayden’s anger management seminar. The 3-5 openly hostile commuters (over 1.5 hours) all seemed to look the same, sorta like me. I even joked that I should make a bumper sticker that said,
This Middle Aged, Fat, Bearded, Angry, White, Male is NOT Voting for Scott Brown!
The best that we could come up with, as we waved at horn tooting, Warren supporters, was that these guys thought they had an “in” to some job and they lost out for some reason. That they then immediately blamed Democrats and “Equal Opportunity” for the maladies in their life. They’da been somebody, if it wasn’t for the immigrant or the lesbian or the (Insert Scapegoat Here). And as they wizzed by, down their disgruntled road, it made them feel some dignity(?) to scream out of their car at several retired ladies. Plus, the guy that looked like them, but was happily enjoying the warmth of the sunshine and camaraderie.
Hey, Pal-o-mine. It’s Scott Brown that is the liar. But, don’t take my word for it:
Update: On a more positive note, Art Ramalho came out to show support, this morning. We had a nice chat about the pro’s and con’s of being vocal about politics.
