    I also enjoy Mr. Heroux's bright eyed and bushy tailed cluelessness - He's going up to Beacon Hill to help change things. There is ONE way things run up on Beacon Hill, the way the Leadership says it will, and no other.

    Mr. Heroux told us in his campaign, "don't vote for the party, vote for the person".

    Really? In Massachusetts? Is he kidding? Rapists, killers, money Launderers elected and re-elected time and time again. Is he that naive?

    Clearly, he doesn't understand this state, so one wonders if he will do anything except say "Yes sir, no sir, right away sir" when commanded.

    One of two things will happen next election:

    1. He will enjoy all the perks of this job (funny, no mention that he has ever had any private sector work in his life) and do it until he drops dead in 50 years.


    2. He will get up to Beacon Hill, realize what a ceaspool of corruption, incest, nepotism, corruption and cronyism it is and serve on and only one term

    Perhaps we should start a pool?

    A government that governs least, governs best. Unfortunately, with most liberal Dems, the opposite philosophy is in play. More government, more regulation, more control, more hand outs, more taxes, and less individual freedom and responsibility.
    But since most people in MA and other wacky liberal states have been exposed to the Democratic Party non-sense since birth, they think that that is the normal.

    Oops. I mean "mess up". The filter won't let you type screvv. It's profane.
    Tell it to my 'threaded fasteners". Can I use screwdriver? Yup.

    Wow, yet another Paul Heroux fluff piece! That makes one when running and now this one - will this be a regular thing?

    How many did the Sun do when Scott Brown was elected? How many times did the Sun endorse Mr. Brown.

    If you're wondering the answer is a big fat zero.

    But enjoy this fluff piece on Mr. Heroux. We shall refer to him as "The new Demcorat darling of the Sun Chronicle".
