Romney PAC donors revealed – Southie Shore? – DeFranco: liberal lion – Sal still making everyone nervous

LIMITED LIABILITY CITIZENS: What good is sticking to the "corporations are people" message if the faceless corporations just turn out to be actual people? I’m getting such mixed signals from Restore Our Future, it’s almost as if they aren’t legally allowed to coordinate with the Romney campaign. (PI)

SHAMROCK TATTOOS: Television producers are looking at creating a Jersey Shore-style reality show about South Boston. (Keller) Since no one on the cast of Jersey Shore is actually from the Jersey Shore, does this mean this new show is going to feature kids from other areas placed in South Boston or will it be kids from South Boston living on Revere Beach or something? I think it’s fair to say that most of the goons living what they think is the "Southie" stereotype are probably from the suburbs anyway. Scott Brown needs to cameo in October.

AVERT YOUR EYES: Do you want to know what’s behind the Telegram & Gazette’s paywall? Super giant photos of Worcester-area reps. I did not need that much O’Day in my face this early in the morning.

I MISS HERB: Marisa DeFranco finds her winning campaign strategy: telling everyone she’s pro-deficit spending. (Salem News)

TRIVIAL: If you’re not down with the twitter boxes, I announced yesterday that the waiting list is now open for the MassterList Trivia Challenge. If you want to come with a team of 3-6, sign up and, even better, tell me you’re actually coming, and everything will work out. I’ll see the rest of you when you all just show up outside the Rattlesnake without any preparation.
