    I think he’ll be, as he has been, his own worst enemy. If he runs as an independent, maybe he’ll draw votes away from the Republican candidate.

    That guy is creepy. I know for a fact people in Oregon don’t like him. What makes him think Massachusetts will be any different??

    I just sprained something when I did that eye roll.

    I’m just hoping he throws lots and lots of money at his campaign because nothing would be more pleasing to me than to see him lose it and it’s frankly an impossibility for this creep to win. Hoping he blows a big wad on his campaign. His funders obviously don’t know how poisonous he is.

    As a … consultant on family issues and human rights with service in more than 30 countries

    Lively conveniently forgets to mention that his expertise is in destroying families and eroding human rights.

    This is what happens when we as a country keep moving the goal posts on what qualifies as insanity. As America lurches more and more toward the insane right, people like Lively become emboldened and start to believe that they are mainstream and electable; and unfortunately in some cases (in their communities) they’re right! Cases in point, Bachmann, Palin, Delgaudio, etc.

    “After long contemplation and prayer I am convinced that I should run for Governor . . .”

    Today’s lesson: Sometimes, God just wants to have fun.

    Massachusetts is a progressive state. Why would anyone vote for this guy who would take Massachusetts back to the ’50s (the 1850′s?)

    So, if he doesn’t win, which is what will happen, does that mean god doesn’t exist or was it just another moment of god acting mysteriously?

    I only bring this up because in the last election all of the GOP said that god wanted them to run.

    Well, if he draws money from sociopaths that might otherwise go to Republicans, THAT would be a good thing.

    I hope that in addition to being sued in a real court for promoting state-sponsored pogroms, Bay State voters should be reminded that this transplant first gained notoriety in Massachusetts for hiring a convicted child molester to run a coffee shop intended to serve as a purported safe space for high school drop-outs and other teen-agers at particular risk.

    He’s confused thick skin with thick head.

    This may prove to be delightful.

    “Sometimes, God just wants to have fun.”

    Absolutely. And I’ve learned that about the time that some loon starts declaring that God said this or that (which just happens to coincide with what their ego said), wackiness occurs. Perhaps voting booths in conservative district will spontaneously combust, or maybe Lively will be attacked by a swarm of lobster, but something fun will surely happen.

    Just thought I’d share this quote from Susan B Anthony
    “I distrust those people who know so well what God wants them to do, because I notice it always coincides with their own desires.”

    clearly delusional.

    Thanks Byron. Great quote.

    And … just to venture off into religionland for a moment … I marvel that they never notice that it’s the complete opposite of scriptural precedent. Almost all of the prophets in the Bible tried their very hardest NOT to have to tell people what God wanted.

    Jonah hopped a ship in the opposite direction, Isaiah objected that he couldn’t because he was, well, a potty-mouth, Moses stuttered and required a miracle (burning bush) to be convinced, Paul was temporarily blinded. In general, proclaiming what God said/wanted/thought was not something you took up lightly.

    In fact, declaring what God wants/thinks/plans/says is a very big risk, biblically. It’s one of the Ten Big No-No’s. “You shall not misuse the name of the Lord your God, for the Lord will not hold anyone guiltless who misuses his name.”

    Okay, back from tangent.

    Back on a tangent: it’s a pod of lobsters.

    Personally, I prefer a pot of lobsters, a plate of lobsters, or even a roll of lobsters.

    I welcome Scott Lively’s candidacy for governor of Massachusetts. Whatever time and money he spends on this quixotic quest is time and money he can’t spend on something that is more dangerous to us.

    It’s just grift. Send him money for his “campaign,” he’ll get himself a nice new wardrobe and some free vacations.
