The impotent state of the Massachusetts GOP gets plenty of ink on the front page of today’s Boston Globe. But the story by Matt Viser seems contented with 1-party rule. Only in the 17th paragraph of the story does Viser write:
Critics say that having such one-party dominance on Beacon Hill results in more checks and fewer balances and limits creative tension in the political process.
More checks is apparently a used as a pun here, as in more government spending. How not funny.
I interpret Viser’s unnamed critics to mean people who vote Republican.
