    is that there will always be those people, and they will repeat whatever the line-du-jour coming from Fox News and Howie Carr is. In my city of Newton, I went into Dunkin' Donuts last year with an Elizabeth Warren sticker on my shirt after a canvassing shift. Two guys started doing fake Native American war whoops and told me Warren was working in court against asbestos workers and didn't have a proper law license.

    Maybe those guys voted. People on the doors sometimes told me they were voting for Scott Brown. But Warren won Newton 67-32 and won by 8 points statewide. The GOP always will get their 35-40 minimum baseline, even in Massachusetts. If we do our thing right, we'll beat them.

      and  the special election is what brought us Brown.

      I understand how the election went and did my part by voting and volunteering but no matter their silly behavior or lack of information,many of these people vote.

      •  Sure (0+ / 0-)

        They always will vote and, with one exception, they lose anyway. I'm just saying we're not doomed to lose every special election because of Scott Brown. We all know what we have to do and enough of us are doing it that we're going to win.

        •  That's fine, we want the same result but (0+ / 0-)

          I just resist the  casual dismissing of the other side  because it is exactly what the right does and as we saw once in MA and in across the nation in 2010, we can't take anything for granted.
