I called my sister, who's a player in the party (and lives on Beacon Hill), she said she was disappionted in his performance.

/when she lived in Concord NH, she did a lot of fundraisers at her house. She was one of the heads of the Democratic machine in NH some years back.
// have pics of Clinton, Gore and Kerry at her house.

Being the dick that I am, I photoshopped a few of them just to tease her.

What's the big deal.  He's going to be fine.  Maybe he'll take a day off, but he'll surely be back in the office in only--


Oh, he's a Democrat.  He'll be on the street very soon.

Seriously. He should have lied about his whereabouts and stealthily jetted off to Argentina to screw his mistress on the taxpayer dime. He'd be back in the US congress in a year or two.

Massachusetts state gov't is so farked up that even moving to Connecticut was a major improvement. I'm just anxious to see what happens when these states really get to the end of their financial rope. Glad I'll be observing from afar when it does...

To find states at the "end of their financial rope," you really have to go to a red state.

It pays to be a politician. If any group thinks they can use your contacts you are in for a payday.

not exactly doubling (125k to 200k) but close and he was going beyond this in the world of politics and he knew that. This was probably for the best for him anyway.

I guess I stand corrected. I though his new salary was gonna be 250k.

Is this the thing to do now...quit?

Eh... just do what every one else in the state does. Move to NH and make the same mistakes there fresh.

Corrupt shiat heel... Now he'll just rake it in in the private sector.
 
2013-05-23 08:26:16 AM
He couldn't farking wait it out another year and a half?  Then again considering the corruption scandals with this guy he should have resigned a long time ago.  But of course instead of getting ousted out he gets rewarded with a job that basically doubles his pay.

This is just further proof that the Demnocrat Party is thoroughly corrupt and evil and should be banned as a terrorist organization.

As far as scandals go those seem pretty tame if you can even call them that. Dude fell asleep and crashed his car? gimme a break.

Missouri recently got together and banned Sharia law - we're well on our way to protecting Real America from the dirty democratic influence and muslim brotherhood puppet masters!

2013-05-23 09:42:38 AM
He's getting twice as much money to head up a right-wing lobbying group.  Problem?
 
2013-05-23 09:54:40 AM
I remember that crash...  happened in I-190 at like 5am a couple of days after... I think it was the Halloween storm that knocked out power for days.  He was driving around 'inspecting' the storm damage.

Now, I can almost accept the 'fell asleep at the wheel' argument... that ALMOST flies.  The Staties in MA are total db's and would all slit their grandmother's throat to run a higher up on a DUI charge, so I don't think he was faced or anything.

Still... the Crown Vic he was driving was TRASHED.  I drove past the wreck...  I am amazed he didn't get dun killed.  The section he wiped runs through a cut out granite hill... so if you go off, it'll make for a really bad day.

The only states that I can think of running into those types of problems are California and Illinois, and Massachussetts runs pretty similar to them. The only thing keeping Mass in the game is a well-educated populace, and as things get worse in New England the kiddos are stopping by for their degree and taking off for greener pastures(myself included).
