Stupid Howie Carr…

I don’t want to do this. In fact I really hate the thought of having to type these words but here they are: Howie Carr is a must-read today.

(shivering in self-loathing and disgust)

For the first time since Wade Boggs was still roaming the Sox infield, Howie Carr breaks a sweat and puts out a Sunday column that is worth his enormous salary. Inventive, snarky and brutal — a reminder of how dangerous he could be if he felt like trying on a regular basis.

I, however, would have added the following entry:

Hack columnist — Hackasaurus Howiecarrus  This beast tends to rest on past laurels. While other species are out “contributing” this lumbering, overweight, navy-blue blazer sporting dinosaur forages off the honorariums given to him by slower, stupider followers. The species manges to hold two jobs but still only work for about 4 hours a day. Somehow, it still is able to convince harder-working, poorer species that he is struggling alongside of them. Only time it breaks a sweat is on the way to the buffet table, cash a check , or to tell a Bill Bulger story for the 2,685th time.

Sounds like someone is jealous because they didn’t write this article. The article, for the most part, is right on. There is so much of this stuff going on in Massachusetts that the financial waste is tremendous. Think of the savings to taxpayers if this wasn’t going on. This is one of the reasons I left Massachusetts. Those in charge kept taking and taking. Shame on them for doing so and shame on you for speaking on their behalf.

I’m not quite sure why you’d think I disagree with it. I did link to it after all, didn’t I?
My problem with Howie stems largely from the fact:
1) He is a hack columnist who hasn’t broken a sweat in God-knows how many years.
2) His columns tend to be summaries of his radio show from the day before
3) He makes millions of dollars a year, lives in a Wellesley mansion, works four hours a day, and somehow listerners/readers buy his “man of the people” schtick.
