The Craziness Hits Close to Home
You'd think Trump's Massachusetts campaign headquarters would be in a major city like Boston, Springfield or Worcester, at least in an affluent Boston suburb town. No, they chose 45 Main St., Hudson, a crappy, dying little burg you'd usually have the sense to drive past, and quickly, considering there's not a whole helluva lot going on. In fact, it's precisely where you'd put a doomed campaign in a state that's already deeply in the tank for Crooked Hillary.I just found out today that Trump's Massachusetts campaign HQ is in my home town. Man, am I gonna have fun with this... #birtherism— Robert Crawford (@jurassicpork59) September 18, 2016
We're a town without jobs, without a legitimate industry since Intel shut down and the hi tech bubble burst years ago.
Since the high tech bubble burst, Hudson's chief vocations are now arson and rubber-neckingStill, Trump's state campaign chairman, Vince DeVito, is valiantly putting lipstick on this pig of a town by saying that Hudson is a refreshing change of pace from the bustle of Boston and that we have a "recent business renaissance" (which, in the wake of the hi tech bubble ka-boom, I guess is dogwhistlese for our 20+ year-old Wal-Mart that thoughtfully made room for Trump's campaign HQ by putting some Mom & Pop operation out of business). In other words, Hudson's the kind of hill you'd choose to die on when every other large town or city tells you you're persona non grata.
Still, Trump supporters here have a "can-do" attitude, with one town resident saying, "Massachusetts is probably a lost cause, unfortunately. I wish it weren't, but it probably is." I may pay a visit to Trump campaign HQ on Election Night when Trump loses the state by at least the 23 points he's projected to lose by. I'm sure there will be lots of wicked discouraged teabaggers staggering in their grief down Main St. to Chubby's packie and not for a tonic.
Oh, man, am I gonna have fun with this.
Just don't be surprised if I have to set up a legal defense fund later this fall...
