MSNBC’s Chris Hayes says, “This ad’s basically a masterpiece.”

It’s not every day a political TV ad goes viral.

But it’s happening with Carl Sciortino…

Carl is the definition of a true progressive leader — he supports prosecuting Wall Street bankers, increasing Social Security benefits, passing Senator Warren’s student loan bill, and reversing Citizens United.

His special election is right around the corner on October 15, voters are just starting to pay attention, and he needs our support.

The first poll of the June special election for the open U.S. Senate seat in Massachusetts is not encouraging:Ed Markey (D): 44Gabriel Gomez (R): 40Undecided: 16Now, even though it’s Massachusetts, it’s not surprising this is a close race. Witness Scott Brown. And like Scott Brown, Republican Gabriel Gomez is selling himself as a guy who’s above the political fray, who says he sees “‘a lot of unproductive noise and bickering’ in Washington and thinks he can help fix problems.”Gomez is anything but that. 
He’s nothing more than a swift boater, the spokesman for a right-wing, secretly funded group called the Special Operations OPSEC Education Fund. That’s the group that spent nearly $500,000 attacking President Obama in the 2012 election over supposed leaks about the operation that killed Osama bin Laden. That’s apparently not “unproductive noise” in Gomez’s world.Which perhaps makes Gomez less like Scott Brown than, say, Alan West. Whatever the comparison, that’s not what the Senate needs.

Anyway, now that I’m 30, and thus of a constitutional age for the U.S. Senate …

recall-all-republicans-2012:

I figure that when November rolls around I might as well write myself in when I vote for the Senator from Tennessee, since:

a) I’d STILL sooner take a cheese grater to my testicles than vote for Bob Corker.

b) The official Democratic Senate candidate, Mark Clayton, is a certifiable whack-a-doodle, as much as any Republican short of Todd Akin.

c) Said candidate has been disavowed by the Tennessee Democratic Party.

d) Said Tennessee Democratic Party STILL hasn’t, for its “write-in” admonition, vetted or circled the wagons around any other specific candidate within the party, all of whom are basically unknowns even at this stage in the game.

e) Not like I could do any worse of a job than any current member of Congress.

Since the Tennessee Democratic Party didn’t care enough to even bother to pay attention to the race, then I will be voting for the Green Party candidate for U.S. Senate.

His name is Martin Pleasant.

That’s his web site so you can get some info on him. I’m voting straight-Democratic Party all the way, except for U.S. Senate. Martin Pleasant has my vote for Senate.
