Has Massachusetts' run of gubernatorial mediocrity from both parties finally ended with the Democrats' nomination of Deval Patrick? He certainly seems more interesting than any of the candidates from the last few elections. Take, for instance, this line from incumbent Lieutenant Governor Kerry Healey's victory speech after winning the unopposed GOP primary:

Excuse me?
