    Only because our political horizons are so diminished by radical right Republicans and corporatist Democrats does seem "bold".

    Patrick supported an ill-fated gas tax hike, an increase in the sales tax, and casinos to the point of distraction as "revenue" soluitons.  After 6 long years of austerity and attacks on worker's rights (not as earth-shattering as our Republican friends but serious nonetheless) we get this proposal.

    I will be fighting to get these reforms passed, but I'm not going to complement Coca-Cola's legal counsel.

    Progressives need to get over politicians.
