It was the journalist Michael Kinsley who changed our understanding of gaffes with his observation that they occur not when people lie, but when they say what they really think. So, Sen. Karen Spilka — the consensus senate president in waiting — was in all likelihood speaking not only for herself but for a lot of Dems on Beacon Hill. And given the level of support they have shown for our Democratic gubernatorial candidates, Beacon Hill Dems seem perfectly happy to re-elect Republican Charles Duane Baker Jr. So it’s not unreasonable to ask: WTF are we doing here? Clearly, it’s time for new leadership.
