Either that, or Teddy's getting a little extra support...

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.

It's not how long the bar stays open, but the quality time you spend getting liquored up.

There is no Happy Hour allowed in the People's Republic. The state knows better than you how to bring in customers.

Oh...wait a second...the question actually read:

"What is Senator Kennedy's favorite thing to consume at breakfast?"

E(ggs)- 3%
F(rench Toast)-6%

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.

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.

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)

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.

Well, he DOES have plenty of relatives and drinking buddies. Added to the addled readers of
the Globe ... sounds about right.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
