In deeds race, one candidate knows who Keytar Bear is, another doesn't

Politico reports that while Suffolk County Register of Deeds candidate John Keith had Keytar Bear at his formal campaign kickoff this week, Steve Murphy had no clue who Keytar Bear was.

Keytar Bear's a familiar sight to anybody who's spent time walking around City Hall - something Murphy didn't have to do since he had a free space in the City Hall garage while he served as a city councilor.

Politico did not ask the other two candidates in the race - Margherita Ciampa-Coyne and Joe Donnelly - for their views on Keytar Bear.

This is basically the "how much does a gallon of milk cost?" tossed at out-of-touch presidential candidates...Boston style.

Steve Murphy Has A Vanity Plate

S1M on his Lincoln. True Vanity.

I am Old School Boston that has evolved. Steve Murphy is Old School Boston stuck in 1952. I would be shocked if he didn't have Cardinal Cushing saying the rosary on his IPod.

Vote for John A. Keith. I know Registry of Deeds doesn't sound like much, but it is one step in further smacking around the corrupt culture that we pay for with our taxes.

Will this have any effect on the quality of work done by the department? I had to email the registry twice to change my home's address to the correct location. What they had in the system was an address 12 miles away in Hyde Park. Not even a similar address.

S1M?

Forgive my relatively new-Boston ignorance. What's S1M?

I'd assumed

The "S" was the closest the RMV could come to a dollar sign, and the intent was at a glance to say "$1M", shorthand for "I've pocketed over a million dollars of taxpayer money by averaging a 7-hour work week for years"

I'll be voting for him

I also plan on supporting any candidates I learn of who are running against long time office occupiers. The good majority of current serving politicians really are just self serving.

I might dislike Murphy

By on

But I could care less about his knowledge of pop culture in Boston.

I would much rather want him to explain why he is qualified for the office he seeks without using politician speech to obfuscate the fact that he is utterly unqualified.

Could you care less? I'm sure most of us could.

Yes

But not that much less. Slightly less.

(note- that pedantic error of mine is a big hang up for a friend of mine.)

If you have reached that level of not caring when you could not care at all, the proper phrase would be "couldn't care less". I always try to have that level of caring in reserve, just in case.

Read the rest of the article

It has some back and forth on that as well. I gravitated to the Keytar Bear angle because, well, Keytar Bear!

But, yes, that would be an interesting question for a candidate forum, such as the ones that Murphy has yet to deign to attend.

As a registered Dem, what will my ballot look like for ROD options? If I don't support Murphy, do I have to write in?

Keytar Bear is an independent

with a background in open space real estate and coffee cup finance. Plus you'll get a free CD with a write in vote. Keytar for Boston!

Nice attitude!

Murphy: "I have a lot of friends and loyalty from my years in public service and that transcends the campaign." READ: I've got this coming to me. No need to run.

Can't Murph

By on

Go work in the dreaded private sector for a change? And why do we vote for a Register of Deeds? Can't they just hire a hack after an exhaustive nationwide search?
