Mike Capuano, in all his astuteness, claimed that harsh discourse lead to the shooting of Gabby Giffords when he said:    “What the hell is going on?  There’s always some degree of tension in politics; everybody knows the last couple of years there’s been an intentional increase in the degree of heat in political discourse. . . . If nothing else good comes out of this, I’m hoping it causes people to reconsider how they deal with things.”

Then when stumping for union support, he made us proud at a rally in Mass supporting the unions of Wisconsin:   (https://sosmass.wordpress.com/2011/02/24/proudly-from-massachusetts/)

Every once and awhile you need to get out on the streets and get a little bloody when necessary

Capuano has every reason to give Weiner the benefit of the doubt, even after Weiner has come out and admitted something that is entirely different from what he originally claimed.   According to Capuano: Political Cartoons by Jerry Holbert

“Based on what I know, he has made some inappropriate decisions and taken some inappropriate actions. But none of them violate the law or violate his oath that I am aware of,” Capuano said Thursday during WCVB-TV’s “On The Record.”

Capuano has not yet made up his mind about challenging Scott Brown.  On so many other topics Capuano is quick to speak, and is a voice of reason.  On his running for Senate we must wait with bated breath.
