Years ago there was a joke (at least I think it was a joke) that Michael Dukakis was earning a handsome income in his post-political life because Democrats were paying him small fortunes not to endorse them, but times, not to mention levels of desperation, change.
This is probably the best news Sean Bielat has heard all week:
In a last-minute move of desperation, Barney Frank called in former governor and presidential-nominee, Michael Dukakis, to help him rally support…amongst his base in the liberal town of Brookline (well, maybe not so liberal anymore). Finding a Barney Frank event these days is harder to do than one might think. Despite the fact that Frank is truly fighting the reelection campaign of his life to republican challenger Sean Bielat, he’s staying peculiarly quiet and randomly popping up at small events amongst democrats.
Why Dukakis? Because Walter Mondale was unavailable.
Just listen to the energy Dukakis brings to a “blame Bush” (aka “get out the vote for Barney”) semi-rally:
A half-dozen Brookline residents are now convinced to not vote for Bush again.
