Sir Donald Berwick (D) to run for Governor of Massachusetts. …That’s *Massachusetts*.

You know.  That place with the hill?

Best known, of course, for his advocacy of (and eventual fall over) health care rationing, Sir Donald Berwick has modestly decided to run for Governor of Massachusetts:

“As a doctor, an educator, an innovator and someone who has dedicated his professional career to making things work better and to helping people – I am ready to lead,” the Newton Democrat said in a statement announcing his candidacy.

In other news, NSTAR announced likely lower rates for its Boston customers, thanks to new energy production estimates that take into account increased output from its new Granary Burying Ground facility.  Turns out that the kinetic energy that can be currently derived from Samuel Adams, John Hancock, James Otis, Robert Paine, and Paul Revere spinning in their graves is enough to power several turbines.

*No, he really was knighted.


PPS: I have been asked to note that “a statewide election featuring an architect of some of the most unpopular features of Obamacare ought to be a big honking signal in the sky for Scott Brown to enter this race.” …True, that: he should.

  1. I think Brown is waiting to see the results of the Special Election, If Gomez pulls off a win, I’m fairly certain that would make Brown’s decision for him, I just hope to God he doesn’t try to carpetbag in New Hampshire.

    1. I hope he decides to run regardless. He proved it can be done, he made a name for himself on this issue, what would prevent him from running a “Remember when” campaign against Berwick?

      1. He might run for Senate if Gomez loses, but quite frankly he might as well run for Governor, at least serving a term for Governor if successful keeps his name brand alive and sets him up for a nice rematch against Warren.

          1. It is if your Mitt Romney and only see it as a path to the White House, Celluci and Weld did decent enough jobs.

  2. Also you forgot John Adams, John Quincy Adams, Henry Cabot Lodge(both), John Winthrop, William Bradford, and especially Captain Myles Standish ( who must really be upset with Mass. considering the likes of John Kerry a war hero). I’m sure all of them are spinning in their graves just as vigorously.

    1. Yeah, but their graves are scattered all over the place. The Granary Burying Ground has enough spinners in one location to make for efficient conversion. 🙂
