Happy Halloween!

It's almost midnight now, and time for some scary stories from Porcupine....

...about a United States Senator who invited the head of the KGB to come to America, and help him in his Presidential bid. So desperate was he to win that he contacted the brutal head the the secret police force, who had just finished summarily executing the head of the Hungarian revolutionaries who had tried to overthrow their Soviet masters, and offered "to arm Soviet officials with explanations regarding problems of nuclear disarmament so they may be better prepared and more convincing during appearances in the USA." And also, "[He] believes that in order to influence Americans it would be important to organize ... televised interviews with [Andropov] in the USA." Uncle Walter and Auntie Barbara were implicated in this scheme.

....Or perhaps another story about the other Senator from the same state, who told college students that they had better study up, or they would find themselves 'stuck in Iraq'. Look and the video here, and decide how 'funny' YOU think he is...




....And of course, the story about the Congressman who would become be in line to become Chair of the House International Reations Committee, despite his close friendships with the brutal dictators Fidel Castro and Hugo Chavez...
No, children, these are just scary Halloween stories....
Unless you live in....(cue music)
MASSACHUSETTS!

The saddest commentary about the quality of leadership that we have, spoken in his own words.

Post-election: Hi Porcupine. I think you have diagnosed the problem for the Mass GOP better than anyone. I think the one positive outcome I saw was the Jeff Perry was reelected and Healey did well in Sandwich, where he had a nice fundraiser for her. So where there was any sign of Mass GOP life, the Republicans did quite well. It has been spooky around here on the Cape; there's been so little evidence of Mass Republican activity. So perhaps new people will uet invigorate this grand old party in Massachusetts. I have enjoyed your posts tremendously throughout this campaign season. Thank you for giving us such thought commentary and perspective. I can't wait to watch the cities and towns of Massachusetts get the bill for Patrick's free preschool for everyone, free all-day kindergarten, extended schools days and school years. Talk about promising a chicken in every pot! He is operating right out of the FDR playbook. It will be funny to watch what happens when the bill comes. Cheers,
