Kerry Healey's newest ad is also her worst. Not able to 'dig up' any new lies and distortions, she's sticking to the Ben LaGuer meme. The ad can be found here and everyone should watch it. We need to watch it so we burn Kerry Healey's image and record in our head. Never again, Kerry Healey, will Massachusetts elect a candidate who employs these tactics. They don't serve to elect a noble government, but one that will cheat and steal as it has during its campaign to actually get in office. Sometimes how you get there is important as what you do when you're there, because how you get there expresses exactly what you're willing to do once in office.
Citizens of Massachusetts have to ask themselves this question: Is Kerry Healey what we want in a politician? Do we want to elect someone who refuses to discuss the issues and instead spends millions upon millions trying to demean her opponents? Do we want a candidate who is willing to engage in open and honest discourse, or one who distorts the truth and plays by the gutter?
At the end of Kerry Healey's ad, she says of Deval Patrick, "He should be ashamed, not Governor."
No, Kerry Healey, you should be ashamed. You should be ashamed, not Governor. You should be ashamed, not Lt. Governor. You should be ashamed, not a Congresswoman, Town Selectmen or member of the Board of Education. You should be ashamed and driven out of government for good.
You should be ashamed at the politics you've been willing to resort to, rejecting time and time again new chances to engage in honest discourse. You should be ashamed at going way beyond the boundaries of taste and class. Most of all, you should be ashamed for proving to all of Massachusetts just how unworthy you are to sit in the Corner Office. The damage was self-inflicted and digging yourself deeper with new ads even worse than the ones that came before it will inspire no one: for shame, Kerry Healey, for shame.
