When it comes to humor, the annual St. Patrick's Day Breakfast tends to be a mixed bag. (After all, not every Massachusetts politician is a born comedian.) But whether the jokes work or don't, they offer a road map to the themes currently preoccupying the state's political class. The standouts this year? Tito Jackson's attempt to unseat Boston Mayor Marty Walsh; the prospect of Democratic Attorney General Maura Healey taking on Republican Governor Charlie Baker in 2018; and President Donald Trump's immigration policy, which was played for laughs, but also elicited a few heartfelt pleas for local tolerance. Adam Reilly and Peter Kadzis dove deep on the 2017 Breakfast and what it tells us about the state of Mass. Politics with Gintautus Dumcius of Mass Live and the Springfield Republic and Lauren Dezenski, author of Politico's Massachusetts Playbook. Listen!
