I'm Betting On Deval Patrick!

That's right. On my radio show today, I bet $1,000 that electing Deval Patrick governor guarantees higher taxes in Masssachusetts.

Here's the bet: If Deval Patrick doesn't raise my Massachusetts state taxes (not local ones--this isn't a trick or a trap) within two years of taking office, I will write a $1,000 check in Mr. Patrick's name to the Fisher House Foundation.

Now, I don't know about you, but for me, $1,000 is a lot of money. But I won't lose a minute of sleep over this bet, because I've got science on my side. Surely you've seen this equation before:

Liberal legislature + Liberal governor= Higher taxes.

Bet? No way! It's a sure thing.
