Federal Freeze

Wow! Liberal Boston Herald and Boston talk show host Margery Eagan actually wrote a nice article in today’s Herald revealing the absurdity of state and federal employee wage spending.

Couldn’t have said it better myself:

Probably the most ignored road sign in Virginia

Wow, what a day for Republicans nationwide. But, what a crappy day for Republicans in Massachusetts. I was convinced that we would pick up at least one seat, win the governor’s race, and repeal 40B. Not the case. I’m pretty sure that the results were the exact opposite of my entire ballot.

It’s unfortunate that we weren’t able to take advantage of the current political climate and turn Massachusetts a little more purple. The flawed candidacy of Jeff Perry squandered a ripe chance to pick up the most conservative seat in the state, which is now going to be held by a liberal who doesn’t even own a home in our district.

I’m still trying to catch up on the news of the election, so hopefully I’ll have a more in depth post later. Comcast has yet to hook up cable/Internet in our new dorm building in Quantico, so I was in the dark for most of election night. But, there’s sure to be much debate surrounding the Tea Party Senate candidates in Delaware, Colorado, and Nevada who lost and whether or not their candidacies were worthwhile. Stay tuned.
