Baker’s Double in Boston Globe?

Would Charlie Baker by any other name be more electable?

From today’s Boston Globe (print headline):

06baker01Baker working to project a warmer image

GOP candidate for governor vows to listen, not repeat ’10 mistakes

SWAMPSCOTT — Seated next to his wife on Thursday morning in the sun-soaked foyer of their sprawling home, Charles D. Baker said friends had approached him after he lost his 2010 challenge to Governor Deval Patrick with a damning verdict on the level of authenticity he had projected on the campaign trail.

“The guy I know, I didn’t see him,” Baker said they told him.

Lauren Baker laughed, “I even felt that way.”

Hey, imagine how we feel. We thought his name was Charlie.

(Not to get technical about it, but going from Charlie to Charles D. doesn’t exactly “project a warmer image.”)

Crosstown, the Boston Herald still thinks he’s (Two-Time) Charlie. Witness the Bakerama in today’s edition:


Picture 1


I count ten Charlies total for the two pages. And not a Charles D. in sight.

Now maybe the whole Charles D. thing is just one more example of the stately local broadsheet trying to sabotage the electoral chances of a GOP candidate. (The Globe also calls him Charles D. in the photo caption and in the headline of the digital edition.)

So . . . will there be a Baker’s Double in the local dailies for the coming year?

Two-Time will tell.
