Happily, it is what it is

RE “A woman of few words” (Metro, Nov. 9): Gee, isn’t Brian McGrory a bit premature taking the gloves off on the woman who got elected just days ago? He might want to contrast that with the mini-coronation the local media delivered two years ago to one of the most profoundly average politicians this state has seen in years.

If it helps, you should think of this like a Bill Belichick press conference. He never says much, but when you look up, we’re in the playoffs again.
