  •  Too bad (5+ / 0-)

    it's not considered as shameful to be seen as doing favors for a crony.  I'm seriously disgusted that my governor has seen fit to use the office to reward someone who has personal connections with him.

    I've lost my faith in nihilism

    •  I don't think he did it for that reason (0+ / 0-)

      as a reward.
      I think he wants to have a very close working relatinship with said Senator so that he has input and some control over MA priorities in the Senate right now.

      Patrick is competant. He has shown it. He has his priorities straight. Although I have some initial learyness (mostly because the guy has no experience on the Hill), I will reserve judgement for now.

      Patrick has been a very good Governor. I have felt good being in his hands as a constituent. He's smart and thoughtful and down to earth and reasonable.
