Rep. John Tierney's really bad day
John Tierney has “admitted” that the almost hilarious gambling
controversy swirling around his family might indeed impact his re-election bid.
… Really? Do you think so, Congressman? … The quotes from his two brothers-in-law are simply
classic Boston. One example: “Tierney is the biggest liar in the world. … He
knew everything that was going on in my family for years. He sat with bookies
at Fenway.” … What? No Bruins or Pats games? Those bastid bookies!… Though it's tempting to bet big on Tierney's political demise, watch him get re-elected. The Hack-Progressive Alliance will come through
for him in the end. The former will work hard to turn out the vote. The latter will look
the other way as long as Tierney keeps delivering the progressive goods. It’s
how it works in this state.
