Kerry Healey, who styles herself a moderate, pro-choice, “Weld Republican,” has announced that her choice for president is an anti-choice, anti-gay rights, right-wing Republican who has lately been cozying up to the most extreme elements of the religious right, appearing on the vile Family Research Council‘s “Liberty Sunday” broadcast and arranging private meetings with nutjobs like Gary Bauer.
From today’s Globe:
In 2008, Massachusetts may have a Republican primary that pits Mitt Romney against John McCain and a Democratic primary that pits John Kerry against Hillary Clinton. If you had to cast a Republican ballot, whom would you choose and why? If you had to vote Democratic, who would it be and why?
HEALEY: Mitt Romney. The governor is an exceptional leader and will be successful at whatever he chooses to do.
This dude has undercut Kerry Healey every chance he got, he’s veered so far right that he’s driving in the breakdown lane of our political highway (oof — there’s a metaphor gone badly wrong!), and yet Healey is still playing the loyal second-in-command. That shit is scary.
