Just Me March 15, 2005 Makes you wonder about the sanity of those voting. spacemonkey March 15, 2005 or their sobriety. Which may lend some credence to the poll result. wavemaker March 15, 2005 Folks — this is the online website of The Boston Globe. Sort of like asking guests at a Bar Mitzvah if they like the wine. D. Carter March 15, 2005 I think Kennedy got kicked out of Harvard for cheating; maybe this is just more of the same. bsp March 15, 2005 Looks like breathalizer tests done during different parts of the day Old Coot March 15, 2005 Was Mary Jo Kopecne allowed to vote? Aaron March 15, 2005 Is it happy hour already in Boston? bsp March 15, 2005 Looks like hourly CO2 results from a stranded whale while it slowly dies on the beach Mike March 15, 2005 Hmmm, one of the best-educated and healthiest cities with the most vibrant commerce in the country and they’re liberal? I just don’t get it. Why isn’t Alabama or Texas like Mass.? wavemaker March 15, 2005 Mike — Jay isn’t liable to back me up on this, but it is one of the misconceptions of the rest of the country that Massachusetts is a wacky liberal state. It isn’t really THAT liberal….We can’t even get the City of Boston to extend the bar closing hour past 1:00 a.m. bsp March 15, 2005 It’s not how long the bar stays open, but the quality time you spend getting liquored up. Jack Tanner March 15, 2005 ‘Is it happy hour already in Boston?’ There is no Happy Hour allowed in the People’s Republic. The state knows better than you how to bring in customers. Pat March 15, 2005 Oh…wait a second…the question actually read: “What is Senator Kennedy’s favorite thing to consume at breakfast?” A(lcohol)- 75% B(ourbon)- 12% C(ognac)- 5% D(aquari) E(ggs)- 3% F(rench Toast)-6% Mike March 15, 2005 Wavemaker, What bars are you going to?? As a resident of Boston for the past 3 years, the bars I go to close at 2. By the way, I gave the idiot Senator a D. And Jack is right, no happy hour allowed here in the Commonwealth. Mike Rich BR March 15, 2005 At first glance, the poll results reminded me of Saddam Hussein’s Iraq before liberation, but the 6% was an anomaly. Perhaps those free souls were out-of-state voters. McGehee March 15, 2005 Either that, or Teddy’s getting a little extra support… From which, the “Manzeer” or the “Bro”? Julia March 15, 2005 Uh, these voters (cheaters?) probably haven’t seen the latest news that came out today about what a fiasco the Big Dig is. Give that news awhile to sink in. (pun intended) John S. March 15, 2005 I know you’re all sick of Masshole-bashing, but they really are a bunch of idiots. Or at least 75% of Boston Globe readers are. But we already knew they’re idiots. They read the Globe. Steel Turman March 15, 2005 Well, he DOES have plenty of relatives and drinking buddies. Added to the addled readers of the Globe … sounds about right. wavemaker March 15, 2005 Mike — Gee dude, you got me — MGL CH 138, SEC 12, 33, 33A, 33B “A pouring license can not be barred from serving alcohol between 11:00 a.m. and 11:00 p.m. on any secular day. Local authorities may grant extended opening hours between 8:00 a.m. and 11:00 a.m. and extended closing hours between 11:00 p.m. and 2:00 a.m.” However, in Boston, due to the inordinate and unfettered power given to local “neighborhood associations” to virtually veto any liquor license application, waaaaaay too many bars close at 1:00 — tell me where you’re enjoying the extra hour — I’ll bet they’re not in residential neighborhoods! Nonetheless, vestiges of Puritanism stubbornly remain, was my feebly made point. Maggie March 15, 2005 The Big Dig….. Jobs all over the place… Cost overruns all over the place…. Massachusetts very happy. Taxpayers ended up with what? Something like 8 billion dollar tunnel/road construction job that needs MAJOR REPAIRS! But Kennedy delivered the cash to the home town. Another reason for TERM LIMITS and/or LINE ITEM VETOS. Steel Turman March 15, 2005 I posted today that the Big Dig is 14.5Bil and the Chunnel only cost 21Bil … something wrong there. Omni March 15, 2005 When I point out that people tend to turn their noses up at the virtuous, and lavish attention and affection on the evil and worthless, they don’t believe me… go figure. epador March 15, 2005 F is now up to 8% since you posted the link, he he he. Rod Stanton March 16, 2005 Is it becaus M is the first letter in murder and Mass? Bruce March 16, 2005 I blogged on that Ch. 5 forum question a half-hour after it went online. After the first handful of responses, it was running 13 to 1 AGAINST Uncle Ted there. I smell some serious juicing going on. click here Old Coot March 16, 2005 Karl Rove is on the job, “F” is now at 10%. patrick March 16, 2005 Did we all forget that although “W” recieved over 50% of the vote it wasn’t much over 50%. Mike March 16, 2005 Wavemaker, you should head over to the bars/clubs on Boylston St. and Faniel Hall area where you can stumble out at 2 am! Also, like Bruce said above, this is the website for Channel 5, Boston’s ABC affiliate. Boston.com is the website for the Boston Globe. Swede March 16, 2005 Yes, Massachusetts is that clueless! Here’s a thought – move the few conservative voters left in the state to the Berkshires, alternately send any western liberals east, extend Kennedy’s Big Dig debacle on a north-south line from the New Hampshire line to the Rhode Island border, roughly following the I-95 corridor; thereby detaching the eastern half of the state (including Cape Cod of course) – and let the Gulf Stream carry it to Europe. Everyone would be where they belong and be happier as a result. Seems like a win-win to me. wavemaker March 16, 2005 Mike and Bruce — Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh excuse me….Channel Five — home of Marjorie Aaronson and Paul LaCamera….A MUCH more moderate opinionmaker! Trouble with the Boylston Street bars is I prefer not to smell vomit when I’m enjoying my Sapphire. I do much appreciate the “aspiring models” (read “cosmetologists”) at Soncy, there aren’t an abundance of 20-something women who prefer their men with gray hair. Thanks for making me feel old, you snake. Henry March 16, 2005 Patrick, George was the first president to receive over 50% of the vote in recent election history. That by itself is pretty significant. Even Clinton, the left’s savior, never got it.
