Doesn’t it sometimes seem like almost every sanctimonious jerk in politics and the left-wing media has some kind of connection to Massachusetts?
The commonwealth has become a magnet for a hugely disproportionate number of America’s most obnoxious know-it-alls — they’re not all natives, but so many of the nation’s most insufferable idiots have spent time here, and they all have one thing in common: They’re smarter, more moral and just generally better than the rest of us, and they want to inform us of their superiority 24/7, whether we want to hear about it or not.
This state has turned out more jokers than the old Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Clown College in Sarasota ever dreamed of.
It’s amazing. Normal people come here, to go to college or on vacation or make a movie or something, and they suddenly devolve into … Kennedys.
Take Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez — please, take her! Boston University. Another freshman in Congress — Sen. Mitt Romney, the former governor who began his late-life D.C. career be-clowning himself with a hysterical anti-Trump op-ed in The Washington Post.
Speaking of which, how come every national sex scandal also has a Bay State angle? Just Wednesday, the owner of the Post, leftist billionaire Jeff Bezos, was outed by the National Enquirer as conducting his extra-marital affair with a “busty” former local TV anchor in, among other places … Cambridge.
Also this week, Kevin Spacey was arraigned on sexual assault charges in a Nantucket courtroom, and Sumner Redstone, the 95-year-old CBS mogul, settled all his lawsuits with his mistresses — well, one of them anyway.
Bay Staters infect the entire nation, with the worst infestations inflicted on our neighboring states. The mayor of New York City, Warren Wilhelm Jr., aka Bill DeBlasio, is from Cambridge. Not a surprise, right, especially after he just said that there’s plenty of money, it’s “just in the wrong hands.”
