Everything You Need To Know About Gabriel Gomez In One Sentence

From Gomez’s announcement and first press appearance today:

“Sure, I’m running as a Republican, but I’m a new kind of Republican,” he said in his speech. “Obviously as a Republican I hold some conservative views . but I’m an independent thinker, and I have no interest in going to Washington to engage in partisan trench warfare.”

There’s a word for the “new kind of Republican” Gomez represents. That word is “Democrat.”

His first day on the campaign trail and he’s already running against the Republican Party. If MA GOP voters make Gomez the nominee, he’ll do it even more.

And why wouldn’t he?  Gomez supported Obama in 2008, he gave money to uber-liberals like Alan Khazei and he was donating money to Democratic candidates just a few months ago.

Any time a Republican candidate says he’s a “new kind of Republican” and an “independent thinking,” he’s really telling you he’s going to spend his time bashing the GOP.

Natural Truth of the Day

For several months now, whenever the topic of enrollment in the Affordable Care Act came up, I've been saying that it was too soon to tell its ultimate effects. We don't know how many people have paid for their new insurance policies, or how many of those who bought policies were previously uninsured. For that, I said, we will have to wait for Census Bureau data, which offer the best assessment of the insurance status of the whole population... I stand corrected: These data won't be available at all. Ever.-- Megan McArdle, Bloomberg View.
