Margery Eagan at the Herald says Brookline may be trending a little more toward Bielat than expected:
Oh my God, could bluer than blue Brookline â€” the capital of Moonbat-istan â€” be breaking for Republican Sean Bielat?
For 25 years Iâ€™ve lived in Brookline, where Republicans admit theyâ€™re Republicans at their own risk. Yet I havenâ€™t seen so many lawn signs for a Republican since a few courageous matrons put a â€œWeld for Governorâ€ placard on their lawn in 1990 and paid the price: social suicide. They were promptly shunned at Whole Foods. Their poor children sat alone in the cafeteria.
It says something huge about Barney Frankâ€™s fall from grace that a few brave Brookline-ites are ready, again, to risk their neighborsâ€™ wrath.
