Gooooooood MORNING, Massachusetts Members of Congress!
Did you SLEEP well?
[UPDATE: Jove nods: I switched out Frank and Caputo. My bad, and thanks to reader jack for pointing it out. The basic point remains.]
Hi, John Olver!
Hi, Richard Neal!
Hi, Jim McGovern!
Yeah, hi, Barney Frank. [UPDATE: Excuse me, that’s Barney Frank]
Hi, Niki Tsongas!
Hi, John F. Tierney!
Hi, Ed Markey!
Hi, Michael Capuano! [Michael Capuano.]
Hi, Stephen Lynch!
Hi, William Delahunt!
…Why the colors? Because of this map, of course:
…Members of Congress who have towns whose voters went for Scott Brown are in red; Barney Frank (who is blessed with a Boston district) is in blue. They’re all Democrats, so no need to distinguish there. Interesting, huh? And it makes me want to ask a couple of questions:
- How do the people on that list really feel about the current health care bill in the Senate? More importantly, how do they think that their constituents feel about it?
- Do they really think that it’s appropriate for Senators Schumer (D-NY) and Kerry (D-MA) to use crude sexual imagery when referring to their constituents? Particularly the ones that are really, really motivated to vote?
I think that these are questions that really should be answered. Soon.
