Let me finish the rest of the editorial:
Kerry Healey is a far better candidate and a far better person than the campaign she waged.
Really, really, she is! She is! Take our word for it! If only she had the ability to get her word out and talk about the issues, this would have been a totally different race. $15 million clearly wasn't enough money for her to do that! She sides with the people of Massachusetts on the issues, that's why she thinks ALL public schools should be charter schools. She's fantastic and super in every way, but that evil, deceitful Deval Patrick won't let you know any better. I mean, he's not the one showing negative ads, but that doesn't make it Kerry Healey's fault that she didn't get to talk about issues!!!!!!!!!!!Remember how, just today, I questioned whether or not the Herald would be willing to enter Shilldom? You know, the place where the truth doesn't matter and only spin counts? Well, they went and did it. What a bunch of hacks.
It would be one thing to write a clearly contrived editorial (as the Herald did with Tom Reilly during the primary) if they thought their candidate had a chance - but when there is no such hope? We all know newspaper editorials aren't as important as some would think, but newspapers certainly aren't going to be ecstatic to illustrate just how useless their editorial space can be during the middle of an election.
Boy was I wrong!
