Get a truck!

Wow, you would think Charlie Baker was a Democrat or something with the bad press he's gotten in the days leading up to his formal announcement that he's seeking the Republican nomination for governor.

With Scott Brown mania continuing to grip the world, the solid ground work that Baker has laid to date seems to be evaporating like Martha Coakley's poll numbers. First you have the Herald hitting him over the head with the fact he's raised a slew of cash from the folks who worked in his former industries -- health care and government.

And now we have the GOP faithful saying he's um, dull. How long will it take someone to call him an oversized Mike Dukakis, a right-leaning wonk?

Heck, the next thing we know, Christy Mihos will be calling himself the average guy in the race -- because he can't pay his bills.

Can any of Charlie's kids sing?

Some people think they are supporting Baker to push out Christy.

GOP Old Guard in tandem with Globe and Herald pick your candidates for you

GOP Old Guard in tandem with Globe and Herald pick your candidates for you. Journalists don't believe in coincidence and neither should you.

Frank Phillips, the Boston Globe's political columnist, must be getting frightened that Christy Mihos is becoming too popular because of his inaccurate attack against him.

Whaddya think?

Way too conspiratorial for me. Besides, I don't think the state GOP is that well organized!
