Bubble Heads: Steve Lynch GOPers #fail

by at 2:48 pm.

The blog of the Blog of Record:

LOWELL TOOK center stage at times in last year’s Senate race between Elizabeth Warren and Scott Brown, with prominent city figures offering endorsements and frequent visits by each candidate, including a debate at the Tsongas Center. Now, with a special Senate election under way, the Mill City is poised to host a tug-of-war for voters yet again.

A “Lowell for Ed Markey” Facebook page was launched in late January, before John Kerry’s confirmation as secretary of state. Posts on the page show volunteers supporting the U.S. congressman’s bid for the seat vacated by Kerry have been at work here for almost a month, gathering signatures in Lowell and Chelmsford. Last week, the Markey campaign followed up with a corresponding Twitter account.

Markey’s opponent in the Democratic primary, U.S. Rep. Stephen Lynch, has called for Lowell to be the site of one of six public debates. Lynch has also won the backing of Lowell state Rep. Thomas Golden and former state Sen. Steven Panagiotakos. Lynch also hopes to win over Sen. Eileen Donoghue and lawyer Michael Gallagher.

No one on the GOP side appears to have made moves in Lowell just yet, but if the pattern continues, it could just be a matter of time before another future senator follows Warren’s footsteps into the ring at West End Gym to record a campaign spot.

At one time, Campi used to frequent the JMac & the Bear Show. What happened? Someone should tell the Blogger in Chief that John MacDonald has renounced his party affiliation, so that he can parlez with the business/political power clout of Lowell’s ConservaDem clique. JMac is flogging what some would call, the “Anthes Prerogative.

For those of you working on your Dispensary Permit Application, here’s a metaphor you might recognize.

    I didn’t get the metaphor at all.  I recognize the name Heinz, from the Penna Senator and Group Captain Peter Townsend, CVO, DSO, DFC.  But, I don’t get the connection.

    Maybe it is an age thing.

    No, I would say that JMac has exceeded the Anthes Prerogative, but I like the word choice, with its Catholic illusions.  Sort of like the Pauline Privilege.

    It looks like Lowell has become the Ohio of statewide elections, the tipping-point swing vote that a candidate must win in order to win the election.

    Just how many sidewalks and bridge repairs is a Senate seat worth, anyway? I think it’s time to find out.

    Jack~
    Will you define the “Anthes Prerogative”?

  4. Tax Payer Says:

    Is Mayor Murphy going to to pay or be charged for the destruction of property within City Hall. Malicous damage to property?

  5. Jack Says:

    Tax Payer,
    This diary is not about today’s story in the Blog of Record. If we choose to write a blog about this topic, feel free to chime in. If you are itching to speak, go here: Mayor Murphy’s statement on the City Hall Door

    First of all, I hope Eileen Donoghue looks at the platforms of each candidate carefully, because Lynch’s seriously sucks. Shame on Panagiotakos. Women everywhere should be kind of upset at him for endorsing a fairly backwards type like Lynch.

    “Just how many sidewalks and bridge repairs is a Senate seat worth, anyway? I think it’s time to find out.”

    Hahahaha awesome.

    Hey Tax Payer, you are really quite silly. Almost too silly to ban. Learn how to post on a blog, please, before you hurt yourself.

    Is taxpayer a reincarnation of remember in November?
