somedude210: what_now: If he really wanted to be NH's Senator, if he really wanted to be a "moderate", he'd wait a few years and primary Kelly Ayotte, who is far weaker politically than Jeanne Shaheen, and is a little too teabaggery to make most NH residents comfortable.

that requires him to think, which clearly he has not done

Of course he has!! He's going to lose this race, but it will keep the donations coming in for another year, and keep him relevant on the talk show circuit for a while, and then his book on his political career "Binders Full of Women I've Lost To" will keep him as a news contributer.

Eventually, in an attempt to seem "moderate" MSNBC will give him a show.

FarkedOver: NeoCortex42: Also, the anti-Shaheen ads have been in full force for a few weeks now. I am not looking forward to the last month or so leading up to the election.

I live just south of Boston and these ads are annoying as fark.

But so informative.  I mean, who would have guessed that she was the single deciding vote for Obamacare.  I'm surprised the ads haven't claimed she personally authored the law and the the Supreme Court decision to uphold it.

92myrtle: Benevolent Misanthrope: WTF?  I don;t get this idea that someone running for Senate from a state doesn't have to actually live there.  Or Congressman, either.  Yeah, I know it happens, but... why would you vote for a carpetbagger?  It makes no sense to me.

They won't.  NH has a longstanding inferiority complex about being wholly dependent economically on Massholia and a lot of internal strife between the more rural (and GOP) interior/rural/Northern towns and the Boston-commuting cities (Concord, Manchester, Nashua, Portsmouth and surrounding 'burbs).  He isn't the first MA politician washout who's seen New Hampshire as a sloppy-seconds target where the shared Boston/NH media market makes it too easy to go venue-shopping without needing to give up one's native base of support.  They farking loathe carpetbaggers as a whole, but for a statewide office it's even worse because every non- Boston-commuting area of the state already has that built in suspicion of those amongst them cavorting with the enemy south of the border.  (And actually, with only 2 U.S. House districts evenly divided between rural and urban those are de facto statewide offices too).  So it doesn't matter if there's a strongish GOP base with affinity to his positions...because those voters--who are overrepresented in the GOP primary--happen to be the MOST hostile of all to carpetbaggers and the state's dependency on Massachusetts.

It's no-win.  And he probably won't make it out of the primary even if he does flood the state with money.

Exactly.  The fact that he's running here immediately after losing in MA has a lot of people pretty pissed.  It was obvious he was planning it for a while, too.  I took this pic last summer in Hampton:

The motherfarker should go back where he belongs.  NH isn't a consolation prize for not being able to make it in MA.

Also, the anti-Shaheen ads have been in full force for a few weeks now.  I am not looking forward to the last month or so leading up to the election.

Aar1012: FarkedOver: Cletus C.: FarkedOver: I hope everyone who voted for Scott Brown moves to NH.  Massachusetts would be a whole lot better off.

This world you envision sounds like a very scary place.

What, all those assholes rounded up and in NH?  Sure it sounds scary, but we can fence it off to the rest of the world.  New Hampshire would make a fantastic gulag.

But where would be go to avoid paying the "oppressive" sales tax of 6.25%?

/not voting for this carpetbagger

sales tax might be higher in MA but I think NH pays higher property taxes.  One way or another we're paying the piper.

Corvus: You were fooled Mass.

we were, and we regretted it (but really. Chokely ran a farking godawful campaign. You can't lay all the blame on us voters), but I think we made up for it in his reelection campaign :D

OK, I violated my "never read Internet comments" policy, but this one is actually pretty good.

"NH is our Mexico. We go there to vacation and shop, they come here to find work."
