Prince Patrick, Changing The Political Culture of Massachusetts... drunk, well-connected supporter at a time.

Now, the Duke of Deval (whose five-day, multi-million dollar coronation begins in two weeks) isn't responsible for the fact that one of his insider pals used her influence to get off the hook for an OUI. He's also not responsible for the fact that, according to police reports, she's an arrogant jerk.

Nor is he responsible for the leaders of the legislature already announcing that "B-A-U" begins the day he's sworn in.

But Massachusetts voters are absolutely responsible for believing that this life-long political hack would be anything other than, well, a political hack.

Prince Patrick's campaign for governor was a remarkable example of one of the great Natural Truths:

"The secret of success is sincerity. Once you can fake that, you've got it made."
