I don’t know how to explain to the Boston Globe how irrelevant the MA Congressional delegation is.

Oh, wait, I do.  This bit?

[Rep Joe] Kennedy’s vexation at the lack of congressional debate on what he called “another military conflict in another Middle Eastern country mired in yet another civil war” was aired by other members of the Massachusetts congressional delegation who are assigned to key committees with oversight of foreign policy and the military.

…As far as I can tell, there isn’t a Ranking Member to a full committee in either the House or the Senate Massachusetts delegation.  Looking over that delegation, in fact, and I’m struck by how utterly bland and forgettable it is. Elizabeth Warren is the best of a sad and sorry lot, and she’s not really that impressive. She’s also not on any of the particularly good Senate committees, which shows a remarkably clear-headed view of her utility to Democrats.  Perhaps too clear-headed: I prefer my Democratic establishment types to be half-asleep.

So, yeah, the MA Congressional delegation can keep shaking their fists in the air.  Their own party doesn’t want to give them a better platform than that; why should the rest of us?
