Only in MA can you have two Dems run against each other and have both of them beat the Rep candidate.

Mass and Vermont have the most rational and sensible voters in the Union. I wish I could honestly say that the Spirit of Massachusetts is the Spirit of America. Unfortunately that will never happen.

I lived in Massachusetts. All the crazies live there. God help us if their brand of liberalism is extended to the rest of the nation. Vermont too. Its the only state where a child rapist can get probation. Pathetic.

Secondly, Cahill is drawing a bunch of Rep support in his indie bid.

I have never met anyone from Massachusetts who wasn't rude, crude, and all around a jackass. Seriously, what is up with that state? Perhaps this poll reveals some of it.

Raliegh, as i said, i lived in Boston for many years and yes, the people there are some of the most angry, bitter, rude and unhappy people you will ever meet. Makes New Yorkers look like a person from Tennessee.

I was born and raised in Massachusetts. I don't understand why every southern states citizens makes us out to be these horrible/rude people. We had this trucker drive up from Tennessee, we gave him coffee, got him lunch, then he calls his company and says something to the effect of, "get me out of the north as quick as possible, they are assholes up here."

Of course you're going to meet rude people sometimes, we work our asses off up here. However, you can't run into that one rude person out of a handful and say that we're all like that.
