2013 Candidate Questionnaire Responses!
 

November 2, 2012

You Want a Rally?

by at 6:39 pm.

This is a rally. I took this pic before the rally started, I had to leave…I could barely get in and out to get some pics.

Around the corner, still more people. The entire floor was crowded. The cars lined up for blocks around.

Only a few more days until Election Day…if you have not volunteered, now is the time! My weekend is full of GOTV and I’ll be doing it on Tuesday as well.

    The choice of Ramahlo’s Gym was pitch perfect. In all honesty, this wasn’t the largest or most inspirational campaign event I have ever been to.

    But, in terms of complete framing of a candidate in the context of the operating narrative, this was the best. Sure, the “Unity” event in 2008 held the title. That production was a huge affair.

    Tonight was much more of an organic, homespun, grassroots offering. It grew out of the people power of the Warren campaign. It was her and it was Lowell, as if there is a difference without distinction.

    So often, it is the “stage” that draws focus. Tonight, the principles shone brightly, but even more so in the gritty ambiance that could only come from Ramalho’s Gym.

    Where has Kerry been during her campaign? His less than lukewarm support says it all in my opinion.

  3. Jack Says:

    RIL,
    His “lukewarm support,” as you call it, says what, exactly?

    Senator John Kerry today begins the delicate task of campaigning for Senator Scott Brown’s political opponent while not alienating himself from his junior colleague.

    Oddly enough, with Brown’s desperate campaign style, laying down a scorched earth approach, trying to destroy his opponents credibility, Brown is alienating himself from Bay Staters.

  4. Matt S Says:

    John Kerry is in Springfield tomorrow. He’s not invisible.

  5. joe from Lowell Says:

    His less than lukewarm support…

    C’mon, we’re talking about John Kerry here. “Lukewarm” is his highest setting.

    …says it all in my opinion.

    Ah, yes. Opinion leader John Kerry. You know the old saying, “As goes John Kerry, so goes Theresa Heinz Kerry, except when she doesn’t.”

  6. Right In Lowell Says:

    When Teresa says jump, John says yes dear.
