The Dialect of Boston

    Word: Corrupt Midget


    Former state Senate President (and former University of Massachusetts president) William Bulger. George Daher chief justice of the Boston Housing Court hurled the epithet after Bulger cut funding for the court in retaliation for Dahers refusal to hire a Bulger crony. Herald columnist Howie Carr picked it up and then in typical Carresque fashion used it to death (sometimes substituting a simple CM).
