Ed O'Reilly Talks Plain
Everyone, including candidate Ed O'Reilly knows he's walking under huge legs in trying to unseat long-term U.S. Senator John Kerry. The Gloucester lawyer is neither cowed nor seemingly does he need sleep.
I bumped hips, figuratively, with him at the Ward 11 and 19 candidate forum at Boston English last night. (I'll post on that when I can find all the endorsement results.) He'd been to Springfield, New Bedford and who the devil knows where else that day. He doesn't seem to acknowledge that this primary is allegedly Kerry's.
Join him and us at Left Ahead! on a special Wednesday podcast to talk about his campaign and why he thinks progressives and even wishy-washy lefties should peep about with him...but not to find their final resting places.
You can listen live on Wednesday, September 10th at 2:30 p.m. here. Within an hour you can go there or to Left Ahead! to hear the show on a player or to download the MP3 of it.
Related Thingummy: We'll be sure to ask O'Reilly about the truncated near debate he and Kerry will have with John Keller on WBZ TV at 8:30 a.m. Sunday, September 7th. It's limited in format as well as to 20 minutes during a very sparse eyeball time.
...and Kerry?: For those who ask why we don't give John Kerry a say, we'll do that as soon as he permits. We've asked on and off since March. Congress and campaigns have not allowed, his staff say. In fairness, we have not asked every week, but as of last week, we heard he was headed to D.C. for a busy session, making it impossible to give us 30 or 60 minutes on the phone until after the primary. We haven't ignored our Junior Senator.
