Mexican Radio by Wall of Voodoo. It's grating and terrible.

flash mobs are almost as stupid as twitter. Just a bunch of people with too much time and a desperate need for attention.

It's like the state wants to kill public transportation.

Boston:
$1.25 per bus ride
$1.70 train
$59 for monthly pass to use both

Carcieri is a douche. What is even odder about the whole thing is that Providence which for all intents and purposes is Rhode Island since the state is so tiny has an openly gay mayor.

@16

You are right but in a state like MA none of the seats are really that competitive. Frank doesn't even have a challenger most elections and I wouldn't be surprised if the other districts in the state are similar in their lack of competitiveness.

Really @4?

Do you live here? It may become slightly more republican on a state level because Deval Patrick sucks but there is still a long way to go before the state elects a republican to the U.S. Senate. Barney Frank's district captures some liberal Boston suburbs but mostly stretches down into places like New Bedford and Fall River where he still has a lot of support. Also the bluest state becoming slightly more republican really doesn't mean much. Out of the 150 state legislators only 24 are republican. They really have nowhere to go but up.

The primary for Kennedy's seat will be a bloodbath but whoever wins that will most likely have a senate seat for life.

Since Lord Basil has been wrong about everything I find these assertions reassuring.

Although these people are making a scene I think the fact that there is no actual policy behind their screams makes it almost humorous.

@6 do you even know what the public option is?

Aug 6, 2009 cbc commented on American Football.
Soccer is populare here because Seattle so desperately likes to think of itself as uniquely un-American and some sort of special liberal bastion of the U.S.

Too bad Des Moines has gay marriage and cities like San Francisco, Boston, and New York are just as if not more liberal than Seattle but somehow aren't lame enough to latch onto soccer for soft warm feelings of "We"

Just when I think Seattle couldn't get more whiny and lame. It's hot get the fuck over it. It's hot every day in a lot of places including the northeast basically all fucking summer. Plus they have a think called humidity and real winters.
