Brian McGrory, Boston Globe columnist, gets it absolutely right todaywhile writing about Matt Amorello’s continuing fall from grace. Thecolumn is a little too maudlin and finger-pointy for my tastes but themain theme is dead on target: Massachusetts government is filled withunder-qualified men and women who got their positions by beingpolitically reliable. The same thing that helped speed the collapse ofthe Soviet Union, to take this point to extreme hyperbole in the leastamount of time possible. Huh. Who ever could have thought such athing. Politics as usual really does have a downside.
