I’m amused by the transparency of Healey’s anti-Gabrielli TV screeds. Does no one else see through them?
She knows that voters appreciate authenticity and conviction and will favor a real Republican over a lukewarm Democrat every time, which makes Patrick the more formidable opponent. She also knows that no likely democratic primary voter is gonna take her advice. So she’s gambling that her perceived discomfort with Gabrielli will make him more attractive and thus siphon votes from Patrick. Yeesh!
Deval should make a point of jokingly thanking her in public over the week-end.
