Calibration check on Brown/Coakley.

You’re at the MLK Day Breakfast in Boston and the two candidates for Senate are talking.

  • One candidate uses the opportunity to make a stump speech.
  • The other candidate – who did not – later criticizes the first one as being ‘inappropriate.’
  • One candidate ‘received polite, seated applause’ but enjoyed a ‘tepid reception at a stronghold of Democratic politics.’
  • The other is ‘received warmly, shaking hands and taking pictures with well-wishers during pauses in the morning’s event.’

Quick: which one is the Democratic candidate, and which other is the Republican one?

Yes, indeed, we live in interesting times.
