The governor is mad at the Legislature and the Legislature is angry with the governor and I couldn't be more pleased with the lot of them. The donnybrook over the sales tax hike, pensions, and ethical reforms is turning into a textbook example of the blessings of divided government. Everyone benefits when the different branches of government compete to convince voters that they care most about us. With any luck, the spirit of discord now rampant on Beacon Hill will make its way down to Washington.
