More MA Politics

Charlie Baker is after Coupe Deval's head too, it seems.

Republican Charlie Baker, the well-financed CEO of Harvard Pilgrim, has jumped into a quickly swelling 2010 gubernatorial race only two days after Treasurer Timothy Cahill said he decided to switch political parties.

My suspicion is that Baker probably becomes the front-runner for the GOP side over Christy Mihos - who seems to be pinning his entire political future on a yet to be put before the voters "Proposition One".

All I know is that it's nice to see a primary on the GOP side, for a change.  If for no other reason than that it reminds us that there are at least 3 non-Democrats left in the freaking Commonwealth.

I don't usually talk MA Politics here.

But this is just a little too good to pass up.

Jumping the Democrat Party line and joining the ranks of unenrolled voters, Treasurer Timothy Cahill is positioned to take on Gov. Deval Patrick without a primary battle in which the sitting governor would enjoy the power of incumbency.

Cahill’s anticipated move also allows his to become the independent voice in the race - beholden to no party - and appeal to fiscal conservatives, Beacon Hill observers said.

Clearly Cahill doesn't seem to think the MA GOP has anything to offer him - a wise assessment (and besides, it appears that Christy Mihos has the socially liberal Republican market pretty much sewn-up already) and that he, a non-liberal on fiscal policies, has no chance against Gov. Spendy Free-Money McSpender among the commie-heavy Democrat Primary electorate - also a wise assessment.

But can we get him to stay there?

Massachusetts is in, more-or-less, free-fall.  Unemployment is spiking, the budget is projected to have a massive deficit, they're talking about sticking us with hundreds in new gas taxes (and that's just for starters), and serious, heated debates are raging as we speak to attempt to do something with these crucial issues...

... and our Governor, Mini-Barack, the Cadillac of Governors, Coupe Deval Patrick (D-MA) - is in the Caribbean.

Together We CanTM! Leave the state in a lurch, evidently.

A glimpse into the future of HopenChange

Well, to the extent that the liquidation of trillions in wealth is likened by our President as "just the gyrations of the market" and sort of like "political tracking polls" - and further to the extent that his Mini-Me is roughly 2-years ahead of Zero as Governor of the bluest state in the union - let's see how Governor Coupe Deval "Together We Can" Patrick is doing in those "political tracking polls" these days...

Uh, not so good.

How do you know you're in Massachusetts?

Well, for starters, an outfit that calls itself the Massachusetts Taxpayers Foundation - which is actually a huge business lobby in the Commonwealth - advocates for a gas tax increase that is actually 30% higher than the libtarded, light-working, Barack Mini-Me Governor.

Oh, and you'll notice from the linked article that other business groups - including the Chamber of Freaking Commerce - support this tax increase.

Welcome to Massachusetts - now bend over.
