Mitt goes for Michigan rap-stoner vote – Kennedy: Stop using Ted in ads, Brown: Nah, I’m good, bro – BFFLs: Brewer and Patrick – Lawrence

BAWITDABA: Somewhere in Michigan there is a Republican voter whose thought process is going something like this: "Well, Rick Santorum is the kind of conservative I want in the White House… but Kid Rock is a national treasure and he’s with Mitt (Globe), so I guess I am too." Is Kid Rock the Michigan Springsteen? (AP)

L-TOWN: Former Patrick aide Ron Bell, who you’ll remember had been suspended from his position with the Patrick administration since a drunk driving arrest last year in Brookline, is the new chief of staff of… wait for it… Lawrence Mayor William Lantigua. (Eagle Trib., Herald)

GOVS: Gov. Deval Patrick doesn’t seem to have made a friend out of Arizona governor Jan Brewer over the weekend. (Herald)

SEN. HONEY BADGER: Patrick Kennedy: Senator, stop using my dad’s name to push your agenda on contraception.
Scott Brown: No.
Ted Kennedy’s Ghost: Seriously, cut that crap out. (Globe)

Scott Brown: Let me see….. Yeah, still no. (AP)
