When the going gets weird, the weird turn pro...

or so the Late Hunter S. Thompson once opined.
Such might be the case today for Woburn's state rep Pat Natale whose last act of defiance in the 4th Middlesex special election was to release a glossy mailer that features a figure resembling his wife holding her nose and grimacing at thought of dirty politics.
On the other side is a somewhat defensive letter from Joyce Natale extolling Pat's virtues that runs over some half hearted stabs at two of his current rivals for the senate nomination. The big issue that Pat has suddenly glommed onto is his opposition to giving in-state tuition to the offspring of illegal immigrants...must keep Raoul and Lucia out of UMass Boston's night school after all.
Dirty politics indeed....
In all it's a desperate, shrill & gaudy exercise in last ditchery on the part of someone who ought to know better.
