The story confirms for us cynics why Deval would want to do this.
Opponents of the streamlining legislation say it would provide the state too much power and allow developers to steamroll legitimate opposition. They also say the state’s Energy Facilities Sitting Board, which would be expanded under the new bill to include representatives from municipalities and environmental groups, is an unfair arbiter, because its mission is to approve energy projects as opposed to protecting the environment.
This bill will allow more than wind farms to bully thier way into communities.
My long standing hunch that Deval is nothing more than Ivy League-corporate minded-make money-screw the little guy-smartest guy in the room-take advantage of every opportunity-elitist kind of guy is now a very high probability.

This is why I think Pags can beat Deval next September. This senate race is good prep for him.
Like now he knows to shut his goddamn mouth about Romney and Kennedy and concentrate on his election. And now he knows the Celts thing can only go so far and won’t need it in Gov’s race. And now he knows how bad Deval is and how is base is disappointed.
He knows he can get his 15% ( probably much more) at the convention and take it to the voters in September capturing all sorts of blocks from Democrats, Independents, environmentalists, business people, ….
Great Great effort by Michael Flaherty regardless of what happens today. I told you years ago that those Flahertys are smart people who are great campaigners and campaign strategists. They are a big reason why Steve Lynch is who he is.
This caught my eye today. The Herald comments on DeLeo not endorsing any of the Senate candidates.
Hmmm, I wonder if Deleo is thinking of handing the A.G.’s job off to himself if Martha wins this. (Which she should) Endorsing someone makes it look self-serving. Bobby could go in to serve out the year remaining in the term without running for re-election. Go out in style.
Of course he has to get 81 reps to vote for him. And it is a secret ballot you know?
My friends in Cambridge tell me Galooch has been everywhere since the hit and run.
Good move Anthony. When you keep seeing a guy it’s tough to stay pissed off at him for something that doesn’t involve you.
WEEI Sports radio has really picked it up a notch.
Competition is good.
