Margery Eagan: Barney Frank’s Brookline stronghold flirts with Sean Bielat

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 — the capital of Moonbat-istan — be breaking for Republican Sean Bielat?

For 25 years I’ve lived in Brookline, where Republicans admit they’re Republicans at their own risk. Yet I haven’t seen so many lawn signs for a Republican since a few courageous matrons put a “Weld for Governor” 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 Frank’s fall from grace that a few brave Brookline-ites are ready, again, to risk their neighbors’ wrath.
