Somebody smash this man's keyboard: Part Two
Charlie Chaplin, professional computer destroyer, on the case again!
I'm not even going to describe our next victim, just read these articles (or skim them it doesn't take long to get the point):
So let me get this straight: Howie Carr is best columnist at the Herald - if not the city - as he is a bulwark against those nasty money grubbing liberals who soak tax payers and try to get gay people married and blah blah blah. Yet, in the span of one week, Howie has written the same column THREE F----ING TIMES. What is this, "Back to the Future"? And trust me, this is a small sampling. Howie only has three columns, which he has repeated ad infinitum for as long as I've been unfortunate to pay attention: the column on some "pol" who is "hacking" money, the one about his best friend Whitey Bulger, and the one where Howie is better than everyone because he voted for our idiot president. This are his only topics. For eight years. That's about 150 columns a year, right? The mind reels.
And here's the truly frustrating thing about this: I have no doubts that Howie is 100% accurate. The state of Massachusetts is an open sewer of corruption and privilege. So basically, this man has made the fact that my state is a haven of "hackery" boring?!?! Is that even remotely plausible? Yet, it has happened. I can't read any of his columns past the first paragraph without feeling the need to take a long nap. Not even the Bruins have inspired this much yawning in Boston.
Truly, the champion of the Blue Collar worker in Taxachusetts needs to either save his bile for a weekly expose or have my cat break his keyboard and stop the madness once and for all.
