Have the wheels finally come of the Scandal-Free-Lotto-Express bus? For some time it has been known by political observers that Tim Cahill has zero chance of winning the Massachusetts’ governors race. A point hammered home by the 538 blog in the New York Times this week, when they said Cahill’s chances are zero. The only group of people in the Commonwealth who seemed to think that Cahill had any shot were Team Cahill themselves.
That brings us to the Five Stages of Grief and Loss:
We have watched all summer as Team Cahill has worked it’s way through denial. They keep saying there is a chance that Cahill could win, when in actuality there isn’t.
Now with today’s screed in the Boston Herald against Howie Carr, Tim Cahill if not the whole team has reached the stage of Anger. The op-ed/column/rant comes across as full of anger and vitriol. Filled with fantasy’s of a coronation of Charlie Baker. It’s as if in his whole political life Tim Cahill has never been challenged, never been in the position of being the odds on unfavorite.
Prince Charles, the rightful heir to the throne of Weld, Cellucci and Romney rides in to evil Deval’s Kingdom of Taxachusetts on his shiny white pony.
Taxachusetts is a land where poor little Howie and the rest of the people have been suffering after four years of evil Deval’s misguided leadership.
In an uproar, the citizens, led by the brave warrior Howie, rise up and unanimously declare Charlie Baker lord of all Taxachusetts. Howie and his brave white knight Charlie Baker ride off into the sunset together hand in hand, rainbows fill the sky and we all live happily ever after.
Quite a fairy tale isn’t it? I bet you feel all warm and fuzzy just thinking about it.
The next three phases should be interesting. Oh, before I forget, what is it that they say about not picking fights with people who buy ink by the barrel?
