    I wasn’t nervous for a minute. RI voters know who is looking out for them.

    If this election cycle has taught is anything, it’s that fake twitter followers cannot vote. That seems to have been a tragic miscalculation on the part of Anthony Gemma which was then repeated by Brendan Doherty.  

    On another note, I wonder if we’ll see a Gablinske-Brien ticket of some sort in 2014? The Sour Grapes party! Good luck, guys!

    Bob,
    It really bothers me that Rhode Islanders, progressives included, are willing to set aside a candidate’s character and record of dishonesty. How can you stomach Cicilline and Fox? To me, they both represent weak ethics, entrenched machine power, shady back-room deals, parochial “I know a guy” philosophy, and a willingness to fib and obfuscate at all turns. I get being anti-Republican. What I don’t get is being pro-Cicilline or pro-Fox.
    I don’t think this is a victory for progressives, or anyone. It’s continued embarrassment for a Rhode Island unwilling to vote against incumbent democrats, ever.
    Ultimately, the embarrassing “old Rhode Island” now continues with these two in power. We needed a change, and we missed it.
