Massachusetts Gov. Patrick breaking promises already.

One of his campaign principles was:

In my administration, state government will model what it asks of its citizens. As the state replaces its vehicle fleet, for example, new purchases will be hybrid or other fuel-efficient vehicles. Our public buses, subways, and trains will be as clean as technology can make them.

So, what does he do once he's governor? He gets the state to pick up a $1200 a month lease bill for a gas-guzzling Cadillac that gets 19 mpg.
Different rules for the peons under "enlightened" democrat rule here in the Peoples Commonweath.

HT to Michael Graham, who has more on Governor Patrick.
