Jun 05: Risk, Kids Killing, Angry Prez, MA Dems
Jun 4th, 2010 by Sam

What’s on my mind….

RISK: What do Wall Street, Big Oil, climate change, saving for retirement, and wearing helmets have in common? Human are LOUSY at assessing risk.

KIDS KILLING KIDS IN BOSTON: Not my problem, you say? Well, if altruism makes you nervous, don’t you at least want these kids to be productive citizens so they can contribute to your social security fund? Oh that’s right…you want the government to keep its hands off your social security.

ANGRY PRESIDENT: Am I the only one that actually prefers that the President keep a cool head in the face of a disaster? Does that mean I am somehow emotionally-challenged?

A THRILL SEEKER’S PARADISE – THE MASSACHUSETTS DEMOCRATIC CONVENTION – Well, maybe not, but… Did the Scott Brown election light a fire under the Dems? Does the success of Dems in the mid-term elections hinge on the unemployment rate? Does it matter if the state auditor talks crazy sometimes?

What do you want to talk about?

Scott Brown. He makes you feel wooonderful. He says all the things you want to hear. The guy your girlfriend warned you about – “I’m just afraid he’s going to break your heart”.

But, he’s soooo irresistible. And we watch you go, knowing what’s coming, a little mad at you for putting yourself in this situation.

But, you’ve always been there for us, and so we’ll be there for you when it all falls apart. In two years. We’ll be there.

Brian McGrory expands here:

I’m going to need some Advil and a cold compress, please. I’m the Massachusetts Electorate, and I have what is bar none the absolute worst hangover of my entire voting life.

Seriously, I was so drunk on power, so caught up in the moment, so free of any of my usual inhibitions, I can’t remember what’s gone on these last two weeks. Think, Electorate, think. What did I do? (cont.)
