Threatening the General Court [by keeping the field organization to lobby for issues] - how’d that work out for Mitt Romney? To enforce your will, Deval, you would have to be able to knock off a few of these bums, and that requires an electorate that’s bright enough to make rational decisions. Given that [the people] just elected you, how would you rate their ability to handle sharp objects safely, let alone vote their own enlightened self-interest?
Without explaining the subtle differences between "threatening" the legislature with a large army of people-power and threatening them via the force of Mitt Romney's angry voice to Howie, I'd like to point out that Howie just essentially called more than 50% of Massachusetts's voters stupid.
Why people who clearly disdain where they work and live continue to work and live there (when they have the funds to move and ability get good jobs elsewhere) is beyond me. It would be like if I decided to be a cook and make fish every day, when I absolutely detest 99% of things that come out of the sea. Howie Carr clearly dislikes most people in Massachusetts - yet continues to live with the "moonbats," who are starting to make up a plurality of the Bay State's population.
Howie Carr could be an entire class in Abnormal Psych - just what makes that guy tick could probably win a psychiatrist a big, moonbatty grant.
