Gabriel Gomez is the Eddie Haskell of the Mass. Republican Party.
Only instead of sucking up to Mrs. Cleaver, in January the Republican candidate for the Senate was currying favor with Gov. Deval Patrick, begging for the interim appointment to fill the U.S. Senate seat vacated by John F. Kerry.
Actually, given Gomezs obsession with ethnicity, as shown in his obsequious missive, perhaps he should be referred to as the Eduardo Haskell of the state GOP.
In case you havent yet read his letter to Gov. Mini-Me, Gomez makes it clear that he is a Latino. A Latino of Latino background, he elaborates.
This is because he is a first-generation American, whose parents were born and raised in Colombia. Which means that Spanish is my first language.
According to Gomez, all of the above means that he would be a diverse voice. How refreshing a diverse voice from Cohasset.
Odd, that a Republican businessman would tout his alleged minority status six times, and the fact that he went to the Harvard Business School only once. Successful minority Republicans usually joke about their heritage, the way Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal did last week when he said in D.C. that he and U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren like to discuss Indian affairs.
But Gomez approaches the moonbat governor the way a Globe columnist would on bended knee. Appoint me, he says, and the nation would be hard-pressed to ignore your bold leadership. It would enhance your growing national reputation for bold and thoughtful leadership.
Wow. Not even the trust-funded Kool-Aid drinkers of Morrissey Boulevard pour it on this thick.
With your leadership, Gomez goes on, channeling Globe scribe turned Kerry coatholder Glen Johnson, Massachusetts could provide a shining national example.
Now the letter is out and Gomez furiously backpedals, trying to save his doomed candidacy. Yes, he did write that he supported Obama in 2008, but that didnt mean he voted for him. Whatever you say, Gabe.
But my favorite part is when Gomez says that the big issues of the spring will be immigration and gun control.
I support the positions that President Obama has taken and you can be assured I will keep my word.
That was then, this is now. Now Gomez runs around the state denouncing Obamas proposed ban on assault weapons. So much for keeping his word.
But lets give credit where credit is due. This one time, Deval did exercise thoughtful, if not bold leadership.
He threw Gomezs letter in the wastebasket.
I’m putting a Sullivan sign in my front yard. A block away from Ed Markey’s house.
