  • This guy is down to Earth.

    { At this point in the race, though, King said he’s not a potential spoiler. “If I thought that, I wouldn’t be running,” he said. }

    If King can’t see that,then  he has inadequate judgement for the job!

    Beware of the tea partiers, they can be worse than a skunk in the wood shed during an election.

      They are rummaging through you trash looking for Tax free meals!

        The tea partiers  seem to be good  at stirring up a turd or two. I hope this November we will be able to level the field.

    “”I’m sure that neither of us would like to see the same thing happen again here in Maine, with so much at stake both here and across the country,” Woods wrote in a letter that said the two candidates “share virtually the same independent positions.””
    ***********************************************

    Mainers…..it’s OK to scratch your heads over this one…You’re not alone in thinking that “their virtually same independent positions” (plural) is somewhat of an oxymoron.

    Of course, either or both of them could choose honesty and openly clarify themselves for us with the courage of their “virtually same” convictions, whatever they are.  

  • Track the media coverage on King in this US Senate race and you will see that it is, overall, extraordinarily positive (some blatantly so, e.g. read the reader comments under some King BDN stories). One media trick is to put up objections to a candidate only to shoot them down. We need a better way to collectively “follow the media coverage” just as we “follow the money”. Ideas, anyone?

       Fox News is excellent at that trick.

      • Most of the media do it. If one understands who the media is seeking to promote, and  not (no easy task) things that happen start to make a lot more sense.

    Whoa, yeah!!!
     
    We’re gonna need a website with unlimited capacity that any Mainer can access. Every time an article is published it can be linked under the candidate’s name with the news source, reporter and article date documented. Each article link can have interactive ability with any Mainer wishing to rate and input the article’s, media’s and/or the reporter’s bias. There should be a comment box.  Maybe the articles could be sorted by issue, date, or source as well as the (default) candidate sort.
     
    An American Colonial town crier would be confused how to tack it on the Town Hall door, but certainly jealous of the new technology!!!
