Noticed on Twitter a new person tweeting me about ma-10 who is pushing the narrative of Jeff Perry as bad cop et/al.

the user is named TeapartyUsa1 and has under 30 followers. Most likely a paid tweet to go after republicans in the last weekend of the campaign as his tweets are directed to suggest that the GOP dislikes the candidate.

It’s a cheap but inexpensive trick and an easy way to make $8 an hour but what else can they do:

With less than a week to go before November 2, it appears that Keating’s campaign is going with a “duck and cover” strategy and hoping the liberal base will deliver on Election Day (sound familiar?). In the past two weeks, Keating has pulled out of three debates, citing “other commitments.” He is probably wise. His past performances have done little to inspire confidence.

At a breakfast forum hosted by the South Shore Chamber of Commerce on Tuesday, Keating twice said he would not have voted for the stimulus package. “I would not have supported that,” he said. “I would not have supported that particular stimulus package.” Later that day, his campaign released a statement saying that Keating “misspoke”: He would have voted for the stimulus, though he would have preferred “something more targeted to rebuilding our infrastructure.”

Keating has also flat-out refused to say whether or not he would support Nancy Pelosi for House speaker in the event that the Democrats retain their majority. When asked during a debate in Plymouth earlier this month, Keating, faced with frustrated audience members shouting, “Yes or no?” remained steadfast in his waffling, saying he would “keep an open mind.”

Meanwhile in ma-6 Tierney ducks and covers from his wife’s federal guilty plea

The Republican went after Tierney for not disclosing to the government millions of dollars that were in an account his wife managed for her brother, Robert Eremian. Eremian was indicted in August on charges that included racketeering, money laundering and operating an illegal gambling business.

“The congressman takes great pains to look at my financial disclosure report and to say that I have $1 million in Bank of America stock,” referring to information Tierney has publicized. “That’s my wife’s money. The congressman knows more about my wife than he does his own.”

In case you’ve forgotten the details:

The wife of Democratic incumbent Congressman John F. Tierney pleaded guilty today to charges she helped cover up her brother’s $7 million ownership stake in a Caribbean gambling operation by falsifying his federal tax returns.

And in ma-4 Sean Bielat raises money from the people who know Barney best:

Documents filed with the Federal Elections Commission show that in September, the Republican Bielat outraised Frank in the congressman’s hometown of Newton, $31,249 to $13,785.

He has also out-raised him overall.

And mind you these are the seats that the media is noticing. Democrats are pouring incredible amounts of money into ma-1 and ma-2 supposedly safe seats while Jim McGovern is in the fight of his life in ma-3 and Nikki Tsongas worries in ma-5.

If only democrats had tens of thousands of people to canvas today in Massachusetts to help out, oops sorry those guys are at the John Stewart Rally today.

The Big Red Wave will be a lot of fun.

Oh and expect the Wave is to hit va-9 too.

Never had a general instalanche before so rather than hitting the sack here is a summary of posts on my road trip with Stacy McCain. I should note the Massachusetts races were covered with McCain on his trip to Mass as we did daily road trips.

You’ve found that Scott Brown Feeling

There is absolutely no reason why we can’t win all of these seats if you give time and effort, we can’t do everything but all of us can do something!

And it goes without saying you should hit Stacy McCain’s site, just keep scrolling.

Update: And don’t miss Stacy’s latest on the Bielat/Frank race

I talked to Jeff Perry at his Quincy HQ today:

ma-10 was the only race that the national media before the last month gave republicans a chance to win. It will be the start of the Big Red Wave.

Yesterday in a flashback to January Robert Stacy McCain was in the passenger seat as my grey Buick LaSable cruised down Rte 128 (I95 for you non Bay Staters) to check what is going on in the southeastern part of the state.

What we found were people who were volunteering for phone banks and a mood that reflected that old Scott Brown feeling.

Sean Bielat talks to Stacy and I at the Newton HQ

The mood of the people we talked to wasn’t just enthusiasm for Bielat it was downright ugly for Barney as Stacy reported in his Spectator column.

“The way he talked to his constituents, it just turned my stomach,” Debbie said, talking about an August 2009 town-hall event in Dartmouth, Massachusetts, attended by some 500 citizens who overwhelmingly opposed the health-care bill that was then working its way through Congress. “I said to my husband, ‘I don’t care who’s running against him, I’ll work for them — and I’ll work my heart out.'”

Stacy gets a shot in Norton

Debbie didn’t want her photo taken but she was there to make calls and before we could leave a 2nd person joined her to man the phones.

From there we headed East toward Plymouth

Plymouth had ooph for Perry and Quincy (above) had even more
Perry’s HQ in the city of the Pilgrims was hopping as volunteers called voter after voter to highlight the campaign. You could see the oomph and the excitement in the volunteers but you could also see some frustration as desperate democratic “smear and fear” attacks came harder.

That didn’t slow them down and at all however and at the Sean Bielat HP in Newton the mood continued upbeat. The phones were constantly in motion and the volunteers excited at the prospect to defeating Barney Frank continued to double their efforts to keep Frank on the defensive.

This has paid huge dividends. Barney has already felt the need to bring in Bill Clinton, with President Obama also heading to the state the race is likely much worse than the official polls are showing.

.

This kind of feeling is what I’ve been seeing all over the state for months and the NRCC has finally taken notice starting to kick into the ma-4 race (Still hoping to see some national dough in ma-1 ma-2 and ma-3).

One of the wonderful side effects of the fights in Massachusetts is the tying down of Monies that Frank and other Massachusetts dems would normally be distributing to democrats all over the country, but with fights all over the state the congressional delegation is keeping the purse-strings close.

One thing is for sure the last time Stacy was here he saw Massachusetts shock the country. I suspect he will be reporting that the aftershocks of the Big Red wave of November 2nd will be even stronger.

And by then my heart will have reached its normal rate after Stacy Driving my car.

Word of advice to bloggers: never give Stacy your keys!

Update: Even as we did all this Stacy had the time to report on some Democratic Anti-Semitic action in Maine
