Well, maybe just Columnist Joan Vennochi, whose column this Sunday was titled "Angry at Beacon Hill? Vote Republican."
Maybe Ms Vennochi doesn't really want everyone to vote Republican, but she makes the point that Voting YES on Question 1 (repeal the Commonwealth's Income Tax) is not the way to send a signal to your local State Rep and State Senator. She suggests that people need to have the courage to vote the rascal's out, rather than just trying to send them a message.
But, she also points out the sorry state of the Republican Party in our Commonwealth, although she sees hope for the Party in an Obama win, with its expected exodus of higher ranking Democrats for the new Administration. The question is, is the Party ready to step up.
Her closing line is:
"The Question 1 vote will measure one facet of citizen anger. But if Massachusetts voters keep electing liberals, maybe they should get angry at themselves for doing it."
Good show, Ms Vennochi!
