Can't buy me votes

Word that Steve Pagliucia plans to drop another $5.4 million into his campaign account for the stretch run in the Democratic U.S. Senate primary race, raises the obvious question: is my turkey going to offer praise for Pags as before it provides me with a Thanksgiving experience?

And faced with the seemingly endless placements on radio, TV, web banners and who knows where else, I've got to raise the obvious question: does he truly think that he will be able to deliver on his promises for jobs, Wall Street regulation and everything else offered up in those endless spots?

And the same question fairly applies to his challengers: as the 100th member of the Senate, lowest of the low on the seniority list, do Pagliuca, Michael Capuano, Martha Coakley or Alan Khazei truly believe they can bring "change" to Washington?

The turkey, cranberries and pumpkin pie will go down a lot more smoothly than the pablum being offered in this spending spree.
