What A Difference 11 Months Makes…

Do you remember what the Patrick Administration spent last July doing?

Carefully explaining that they would not kill cute, furry, beloved-by-children animals.

Yep, it seems like a distant memory but the Administration was pinned down for a healthy chunk of July 2009 by the Franklin Park Zookeeper’s threats to shut down the zoo and let the state decide what animals would…ahem…be victims of cost-cutting..

Now, I’m a big fan of the zookeeper in question, but as a zookeeper not a political mastermind, so it was a curious sight to behold.

The contrast with the present day is pretty clear. The GOV has found his political footing and is doing a creditable job of throwing political punches.

Time flies in Massachusetts politics.
