Bielat and Childs: who’s the bigger Dem? – BMG and RMG are hilarious mirror images – What will become of Mitt ’s Millions? – Cranberries!

PRIMARIES: With all the talk of Democratic primaries in congressional races, it’s about time someone paid attention to one of the only competitive Republican primary races we have: the 4th. Will it be former state mental health chief Elizabeth Childs or former Barney Frank challenger Sean Bielat that takes on presumed Democratic nominee Joe Kennedy in the fall? The two are at each others’ throats over who’s a bigger Democrat, leaving the poor voter to rely solely on John Walsh’s expertise in figuring out which red candidate is bluer.

I GUESS PEOPLE PAY ATTENTION TO THESE ROLLS CALLS: I love it when both Blue and Red Mass Group have nearly opposite posts. Check out the right and left on the House health care cost bill. And if you want to get down in the weeds, you can read Dan Winslow’s defense of his yes vote.

MITT MONITOR: What would happen to Mitt’s millions if he’s elected president? He sells a bunch of assets off and the rest gets put in a blind trust overseen by federal officials, that’s what.
