Next time, skip the Herald

Thank heaven the Tea Party Newsletter is there to guard the taxpayer wallets from that noted spendthrift Lt. Gov. Tim Murray. At least that's better than snickering about his sobriety.

While State Police said icy roads were to blame for the early morning rollover in central Massachusetts, the Herald's resident ethicist questioned the results of a Breathalyzer test that Murray requested at the scene.

Few can say the story is run-of-the-mill. The state's No.2 is out for coffee and a Herald in the wee hours and decides to head up from his Worcester home to survey storm damage in Sterling along a pitch dark road. He hit black ice and totaled the Crown Vic he had been assigned from the state motor pool.

Wise enough a politician in today's age, he asked for a field sobriety test which came out 0.0.

Bizarre? No doubt. Backed up by a state police report (that noted an arriving trooper almost wiped out on the black ice), the normal reaction of most human beings would be to say thank goodness he didn't get hurt or worse.

Trying to stick Murray being wasteful of taxpayer cash? Priceless.

My own advice to Murray: it's never worth getting into a car to try to buy a Herald. Next times, stick with coffee.
