From the Boston Globe endorsement of Khazei for Senate, via Daily Kos, comes a ringing endorsement of something I think we ought to become more and more skeptical of, that mythical "progressive" politician who is skillful at building coalitions with "private interest groups" and therefore can get things done by compromising everything in the expediency of business:

It moves away from Reagan-era skepticism about government without relying on traditional government programs to provide all the answers.

How then, pray tell, does it move away from Reagan-era skepticism? Give me a fucking break. These so-called "change" candidates that marry the interests of activists and business are about as real as the mythical single girl sought by straight couples whom they don't actually want to know, but wants to be treated like a prostitute for free.
