Wait – what? Democrat Rep. Ed Markey, who is seeking the Massachusetts Senate seat vacated when John Kerry became Secretary of State, straightened out his Republican opponent, Gabriel Gomez, in a debate last night over a question about the Keystone XL Pipeline.
“It’s really not math. It’s just arithmetic. It’s very simple arithmetic. It’s not as complicated as math,” Markey said regarding the pipeline, which he opposes and Gomez supports.
Obviously, Markey should remain in the House with his pals Hank “Guam Is Tipping Over” Johnson and Sheila Jackson “North And South Vietnam Are Living Peacefully Side By Side” Lee.
Although, come to think of of it, maybe Ed’s the perfect replacement for John “I Actually Did Vote For The Bill Before I Voted Against It” Kerry. Nah, I’m pulling for Gomez.
In Markey’s defense, Democrats have always had a problem with math – er – arithmetic – er – I’m confused. I wonder if my first grade teacher is still alive? I have a question.
