Dianne Jumps the Shark

According to the Globe, the Herald, and PolitckerMA, Sen. Dianne Wilkerson plans to run a sticker/write-in campaign as an (ahem) Democrat in November. She anticipates not getting 228 votes in a Saturday recount to reverse her loss to Sonia Chang-Díaz.

Meeting last night in Dorchester with 300 fans, she heard what she wanted to hear from an audience that apparently is as unrealistic and graceless as she. Meanwhile, she's lost Gov. Deval Patrick's backing; he's moved on.

If she goes all sticker on the voters, she'd face a challenger on the ballot, which is comparable to being an incumbent in voting. Moreover, she would likely put herself in an unfortunate class of undermining her party in a general election.

She seems determined to destroy her political career. It's good she could have a day job as a lawyer.
