When it comes to the MBTA, meet the new boss, same as the old boss. I always thought that when a new administration came in, they were supposed to clean house. New hacks for old hacks, you might say. But in this long MBTA winter nightmare that is the legacy of bust-out Gov. Deval Patrick, the new GOP regime is merely shuffling the deck. The other day I spotted the name of Thom Dugan on an MBTA document. Strange, I thought, I recalled a Deval coatholder of that same name who had a hack job (“director of budget”) at the state Department of Transportation. Guess what – […]
Whitey Bulger is gone from Boston, but Bench McCarthy is here to take his place.

No, I don’t mean the fiasco of “medical” marijuana in Massachusetts, although, yes, that too did begin with the hack’s hack ex-state rep, district attorney and Congressman getting 3 of the state’s 20 licenses last year after the traditional nationwide search.

This blindingly brilliant insight from America’s Gigolo came last week at the White House Don’t-Call-It-Islamic-Terrorism Conference. This is the confab where Obama again mentioned America’s Muslim founding fathers. You know, like Osama Ben Franklin. Then they floated their Jobs for Jihadis program for the genocidal ethnic cleansers, I mean aspiring rappers, who are turning their lives around. You’ve surely seen the list of proposed new Islamist anti-poverty agencies: Be-Head Start, the Jobs Corpse, etc. But […]
Looks like Jonathan Gruber’s in for some real legal trouble.
