    So much for the evolving Donald Trump the real thing was back on display last evening at Trump Tower. I wanna thank the media, he said. The media has covered me very fairly the last two hours! After last night, you can now refer to Lyin Ted Cruz as Dyin Ted. If AMC made a series about him, it would be called The Walking Ted. The Texas senators motto is TrusTed, but last night Cruz was dominaTed in Pennsylvania, humiliaTed in Rhode Island, toasTed in Connecticut, decimaTed in Delaware and just plain defeaTed in Maryland.

    Gov. Deval Patrick is reportedly on the short list of potential running mates for Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton and Bay State political analysts say he could be the perfect pick because he could help win over the partys progressive wing and shine in head-to-head debates. I think hed be a terrific choice, said Philip Johnston, former chairman of the Massachusetts Democratic Party. He is viewed as a strong progressive, and I think he has great credibility with both Clinton and (Bernie) Sanders supporters. The New York Times reported yesterday that Clintons advisers are compiling a list of 15 to 25...

    Rafael Ted Cruz, Jr. had a big problem last night with New York values. His problem was, New York values a chance to actually vote for the candidates. So the Empire State didnt cancel its primary, or pick the delegates in smoke-filled back rooms, the way Ted Cruz prefers to have the fights fixed for him by his Republican-in-name-only (RINO) handlers. Another problem for Cruz: hes the favorite son of Calgary, Alberta. Donald Trump is the favorite son of Queens, New York. They werent counting Donald Trumps votes last night in New York, they were weighing them. And for the...

    A sex-abuse scandal at Phillips Exeter Academy widened on Tuesday, as police said they are investigating multiple allegations of misconduct and abuse involving former faculty members at the prestigious New Hampshire boarding school. The announcement came less than a week after the school publicly disclosed that Rick Schubart who held positions as chair of the history department, director of admissions, dorm adviser, and coach during his nearly 40-year career had been permanently barred from campus after admitting to sexual misconduct in two cases dating back to the 1970s and 1980s.

    BOSTON (CBS) North Shore Congressman Seth Moulton seems like a nice guy. Hes young, good-looking, and the product of an admirable record of military service. His victory over Congressman John Tierney in 2014 was a breath of fresh air. But Wednesday night he improperly compared Donald Trump to Adolf Hitler, and he ought to be called out for it. At a Boston Globe forum, Moulton said people should read the history of how Germany elected Hitlerand just try to understand the analogy [with Trump]. As evidence, he cited a news account from the early 1930s suggesting Hitlers anti-Semitism was...

    There are only two factions left now in the Republican party. Trump and anti-Trump. Gov.

    Boston Herald ^ | 3/10/16 | Joe Battenfeld
    The greatest threat to Gov. Charlie Baker’s re-election right now isn’t a Democrat — it’s his own party and soon-to-be-nominee Donald Trump. Baker’s power grab on the GOP state committee and denouncement of Trump have alienated him from many party activists, and more importantly, the 311,000 Massachusetts voters who cast ballots for Trump. That’s a big problem for a GOP governor who got just 115,000 votes in his own primary in 2014 and beat Democrat Martha Coakley by a slim 40,000-vote margin. The bad blood could even leave Baker vulnerable to a Republican primary challenge in 2018, especially if Trump...

    SALEM MA— A Salem Superior Court judge has sentenced Philip Chism to life in prison with eligibility of parole after 25 years in the murder of Danvers High School teacher Colleen Ritzer. Chism, however, was sentenced to 40 years in prison for each rape and robbery count. This means Chism, 17, won't be able to seek parole until he is 54 years old. Prosecutors wanted Chism to spend at least 50 years in prison for Ritzer’s rape, robbery and murder before he is eligible to seek parole. His attorneys wanted Salem Superior Court Judge David Lowy to impose a sentence...

    Thousands may have mistakenly registered to vote with the United Independent Party in the Massachusetts presidential primary thinking their choice would let them draw a ballot for their favorite Republican or Democrat — only to learn later it doesn’t, the state’s top election official told the Herald. In Massachusetts, voters not enrolled in a party can choose which primary to vote in. But the United Independent Party is a party like the others, and its members will get a blank UIP ballot unless they formally switched by midnight last night. “My concern is this: I don’t want people who want...

Now Willamette Week says “the personal attacks of Senator Bernie Sanders’ supporters are causing him to cancel his show.” Wolfson says on Facebook “Okay, I’m done…If progressives that I have spoken for during the past nine years on radio have lowered themselves to label Hillary a ‘fascist’ or the ‘spawn of Satan’ and worse, I have too little faith in politics to continue.” Wolfson doesn’t...

    New York values — Ted Cruz seems to think he has a pretty good idea of what exactly they are. So does Donald Trump, although his definition is exactly the opposite of Cruz’s, and The Donald has the advantage of having lived in N.Y., N.Y. his entire life. Which brings us to “Massachusetts values.” There’s less debate over those, I dare say. There are certain things — actually, many things — that all can agree indisputably represent “Massachusetts values.” A sign that says “EBT Accepted Here.” Moving a fire hydrant from out in front of your mansion. Potholes. Third bathrooms....

    LITTLETON (CBS) – Donald Trump’s Massachusetts headquarters was vandalized with vulgar graffiti. The front entrance at the Trump state campaign headquarters in Littleton were spray painted with a phallic drawing, a curse word, and “Nazi” written in large letters. Trump’s Massachusetts headquarters is located on King Street. The controversial presidential candidate is currently leading polls in the Republican party. “These types of acts are surprising and certainly not representative of the kind of town that Littleton is and the kind of people who live in this community.

    Boston Globe executives summoned managers of its new distribution partner to a meeting Sunday to discuss widespread delivery failures, but the day ended with finger pointing and no clarity about when all home subscribers could once again count on getting their newspapers. Behind disruptions affecting up to 10 percent of daily subscribers are two basic problems, both sides said. ACI Media Group Inc., which took over home delivery in Greater Boston last Monday, has yet to hire enough drivers to cover every route. And many of ACI’s new delivery routes lack any logical sequence, leaving drivers criss-crossing communities and making...

I mention this only to set up a question: How often do you see Mr. and Mrs. William Jefferson Clinton together? So now Clinton is going to be the Trump Slayer? He’s going to take down the big bad billionaire? The bumkissers are touting Clinton as the guy all the ladies love, unless of...

    It seems a majority of Massachusetts voters actually prefer boring to blustery. In a recent poll that gauged support for governors across the United States, Baker earned a 74 percent approval rating from Massachusetts residents, a level of support no other governor could reach. How does Baker make boring so appealing? He seems to have figured out three qualities that are critical for getting things done, even in a state where his own Republican party is still a distinct minority. For one thing, he plays well with others. Unlike his predecessors, Baker goes out of his way to make nice...

It announced that next Tuesday evening, the new governor will be lighting a “Christmas tree” at the State House. No muss, no fuss, no controversy. It’s Christmas, so a Christmas tree is going up on Beacon Hill. Merry Christmas! Granted, it’s a small step on a long road, but after eight years of the PC malaise that marked Deval Patrick’s disastrous tenure, at least a bit of...

    Since McDonald's launched an all-day breakfast menu last week, a number of their franchisees are not 'lovin' it' and say it has been a nightmare. Franchisees say that serving breakfast all-day has slowed down service, lowered average bills and sparked utter chaos in the restaurant giant's kitchens. Twenty-nine operators overseeing 226 different locations in the US were surveyed by Mark Kalinowski, an analyst for the Japanese finance company Nomura. He found that since the new menu items were added last Tuesday, many of the franchisees were struggling. 'In small stores, the problems are vast with people falling over each other...

    Stations must provide other candidates airtime on request NBC affiliates may want to get their stop watches out when Donald Trump hosts Saturday Night Live. Per FCC rules, qualified candidate appearances on non-news broadcasts are subject to the "equal opportunities" requirement, which requires TV stations who give airtime to one candidate to offer other qualified candidates for the same office an equivalent amount of airtime on the station. NBC could ask the FCC for a ruling that the show was a bona fide news broadcast or news interview program or documentary, and thus exempt from the requirement, but that would...
