    He's my Congressman and I've met with him face-to-face several times to lobby on various things as a constituent.

    Just because the guy is Boston College and not Harvard doesn't make him dumb.

    Assuming that he was actually on that list (citation?) and I gave a rat's ass what Spy Magazine said 20+ years ago.

    •  Actually... (0+ / 0-)

      I love it when people call me a liar.

      To be fair, according to the article, Markey isn't exactly in the same class as the Republican idiots in this article, he was just not much liked or respected by his colleagues.

      And while you might not care what was written in Spy Magazine in in 1989, people who respect what journalism once was recognize nothing today can touch them in their field.  

      They were an amazing magazine...and were absolutely fearless.

      •  I stand corrected on the list (0+ / 0-)

        But whatever you think of their journalism, putting Markey in the same category as Alfonse D'Amato is just plain wrong. Period.
