Today at the WGBH radio studio, I had the wonderful good fortune to hear an interview with new MA-10 GOP nominee Jeff Perry. As we know, Perry is a strident conservative who wants to repeal Obamacare, is a “hardliner on immigration”, has a shady past in his police career, etc.
At some length, Jeff Perry vowed he would make hay by tying his Dem opponent to Nancy Pelosi. And gosh, maybe he'll succeed.
But, uh, Jeff, have you really thought this through?
For whom, exactly, should we assume you'll vote for as the next Speaker of the House?
The orange guy, right?
- The guy who said the financial regulation bill was “killing an ant with a nuclear weapon”?
- “A G.O.P. Leader Tightly Bound to Lobbyists“?
- This guy?
- “Not the hardest worker in the world … by 5 or 6 o'clock at night, you can see him at bars.” (Not that there's anything wrong with that, mind. The less he does, the better.)
et ce ter a.
How about it, Jeff? How about we have good ol' Next-Speaker Boehner here in MA for a big fundraiser, a few rallies, a nice fat photo op? How about a hug?
Whaddya say, Jeff?
