  •  Your first paragraph (4+ / 0-)

    Ron Johnson managed to do just that in the 2010 elections here in Wisconsin. It's just a matter of looking competent and amiable while controlling your own message. Maybe the Boston media won't permit that, but the craven and lazy Milwaukee media certainly gave Johnson a free pass. I'm guessing the Johnson model is what the Republicans will try to use in any nominally blue state.

    •  Boston Globe isn't buying it (3+ / 0-)

      They had the "unpaid appraiser" story on the front page of the website yesterday.

      not sure about the Herald though.

      •  Maybe that's the difference (1+ / 0-)

        Boston has two newspapers. So the Globe, say, can be liberal, and the Herald can be conservative. In Milwaukee, we only have one paper, so they're afraid to alienate half the customers by being either liberal or conservatives. They're a bunch of fence-sitters. It's one thing to be that on your editorial page, but the Milwaukee paper is like that in their news section as well. They report A as well as Not A, even when one side is demonstrably full of crap. Apparently you don't have that problem in Boston, and you're lucky.
