Available at many tables at the gay pride festivities…..
And, here’s a summary from Mass Resistance in case you haven’t seen it:
Running to the left: “I’ll be a pain in the butt to the GOP”
Earlier in the week, Gomez released a statement saying that he if elected he intended to be considered “a pain in the butt” to the Republican Party, and that he “will go to work on them” to “support allowing two people to get married, whether they are gay or straight.”
This is not surprising given that Gomez had supported Obama in 2008 and had donated $500 to the Obama campaign, and said he supported Obama’s positions on immigration and gun control. Gomez also gave $1,000 to ultra-liberal U.S. Senate candidate Alan Khazei. (Yes, that’s the same Alan Khazei who hired infamous gay activist Kevin Jennings to run his non-profit group.)
On the abortion issue, Gomez claims to be “personally pro-life” but says that Roe v Wade is “settled law” and he would do nothing to take away a woman’s right to an abortion.
Should anyone vote for this guy?
Republican politicians in Massachusetts think they have the routine down pat: that they can be as left-wing as they want, and conservatives will vote for them because the Democrat is always “worse.”
In this case an argument can be made that as bad as the Democrat is — and Congressman Edward Markey is really bad — the differences between him and Gomez are largely in degrees. They both basically support a lot of the same policies. But Gomez has already said he intends to work hard to change the Republican Party. That’s a big danger.
Personally, we’re going to blank out the ballot on June 25.
O.K., let the flames begin folks. Comments always welcome…
