Tierney wants 3rd party ad ban – T-Paw in Boston – Kerry rejects State talk – Foxboro elects anti-casino selectmen

T-PAW: Tim Pawlenty was in town yesterday, but not for the reason you think Tim Pawlenty might be in town. The former Minnesota governor has previously said he has no interest in being strapped to the roof of Mitt’s national campaign bus as the VP candidate, but was a bit less convincing yesterday.

WAR FOR THE NORTH SHORE:Congressman John Tierney is challenging his Republican opponent Richard Tisei to take the same “People’s Pledge” Scott Brown and Elizabeth Warren have in their Senate race and bar the use of third party ads. Not such a bad deal for an eight-term incumbent, huh?

SOUL OF WIT: In classic John Kerry brevity, the senior senator wants to “just kill all of that chatter now as much as one is humanly possibly able to,” when it comes to him maybe-sorta becoming Secretary of State and leaving Scott Brown in charge of yelling at NOAA.

WYNN LOSES: Foxboro voters say no to Bob Kraft and Steve Wynn’s casino plans by electing two staunchly anti-building-a-giant-resort-casino-here selectmen.
