The Great and General Court of Massachusetts, aka the Massachusetts Legislature, is made up of 160 Representatives and 40 Senators. Right now there are a whopping 16 Republicans in the House and 5 members of the GOP in the Senate.
You might think right-wing radio work would be hard to get. Not so.
The Howie Carr Show ("drive home with Howie") is a hit here, and in the Bay State.
Born in Maine, Howie Carr is a firecracker. He wrote a book or two about the Boston mob, and hates Mike Barnicle. Howie's alleged pet name for his wife for many years was "Submit."
This week Howie is broadcasting live from The Big E Fair in West Springfield and relentlessly heckling Governor Patrick because of the Kirk appointment to the U.S. Senate. The political maneuvers and good ol'boy Democrats make him sick!
Yesterday afternoon's broadcast was about Howie Carr exercising great discipline. He apparently was able to hold back on fried dough and milk shakes in order to save room for a double cheeseburger with bacon, in between two glazed doughnuts.
