Sal and the Hack-Progressive Alliance
sums up the latest chapter in the Sal saga. ... I'm equally interested in the debate here
over Sal's future. It cuts to the heart of the Hack-Progresive Alliance
, i.e. progressives' toleration of a certain degree of hackery as long as the progressive goods are delivered. Not all liberals tolerate or like the alliance. But judging by some of the comments at BMG, there's more than enough cynics on the left to keep the Hack-Progressive Alliance ticking for quite a bit longer. ... Hub Blog was somewhat impressed with Gov. Patrick's recent call for reforms.
But it's still just talk at this point. ... BTW: Joan was right.
