What was DiNatale thinking?

Hard to know, after reading this story in today's Globe. But it's fair to say that his status as a credible observer of state politics is in serious jeopardy.

And what's with the tepid reaction from UMass? A statement from Frederick Sperounis, UMass-Lowell's executive vice chancellor, makes it sound like ostensibly netural pollsters on the state payroll moonlight as political consultants all the time. To wit: "The university does not see any legal or ethical issues associated with Mr. DiNatale's work, but will review all the issues raised and will take appropriate action if warranted."

Contrast this with DiNatale on DiNatale: "It's hairy; there's no question about it. You're working at a public university, and when you poll...on basically your bosses, OK, you get [expletive]."

Finally, is it just me, or does DiNatale bear an eerie resemblance to Elliott Gould?
