Deep Thoughts by David Bernstein

The Boston Phoenix’s David Bernstein has some questions for the next Minority Leader of the Massachusetts House. Don’t let Bernstein’s left journalist credentials fool you, nor his snarky and Schaedenfruede-ian tone: there are some legitimate questions Brad Jones, Lewis Evangelidis, even Sen Minority Leader Richard Tisei, should consider during a quiet walk through the woods.

4) In 2004, the state party said that its losses were due to a “Kerry wave.” In 2006 it was an “anti-Iraq War wave,” and in 2008 an “Obama wave.” As chairman, what wave will you blame the 2010 election results on?

5) In your analysis, how many Democratic legislators must be actively under indictment or ethics investigation for the Republican Party to gain seats in an election?

 We’re now standing at two indicted state senators, a Senate page wanted for armed robbery, a House Speaker and House Majority Leader under investigation, and a growing number of hacks and other state employees arrested for theft, not to mention a transportation system about to collapse, and a billion-dollar deficit. I mean, the only way Democrats in this state could piss off the voters anymore would be if they named Alex Rodriguez the head turnpike toll collector and his contract allowed him to give daily wedgies to Bobby Orr and Tom Brady.
