I picked up this amusing bit about the Massachusetts Senate race from our friend Sancte Pater.
Things are looking so bad for Democrats in Tuesday’s special election for the Senate seat vacated by Ted Kennedy that MSNBC’s Chris Matthews is concerned there aren’t any left-leaning votes for his Party to buy.
“You know in the old days…if the Democrats faced this kind of a disaster in the works, you’d go back to your ones, the people you were sure are going to vote Democrat, and you’d make sure they got to the polling place,” Matthews told NBC’s Chuck Todd on Friday’s “Hardball.”
“You’d get them lunch, you’d get them a car. You’d make sure they got there, and in some cases you’d be buying people to get them,” he continued. “But I hear talking to somebody today there aren’t people up there in Massachusetts like that anymore”
Ah, the good old days.
