That was an excruciatingly stupid thing to do.  And it's going to feed all sorts of democrat/liberal attacks against republicans and conservatives.

There must be other Republicans who have better control of their vocabularies, better self-control and better judgment.

A lot of us on here knew who he was and supported him losing his bid for the senate.. the guy is a flaming liberal and why he calls himself a R is beyond my comprehension -  he believes in all the same things as John Kerry.

You would have thought that, but the last few years have demonstrated a depressing trend among republicans who've put the cart before the horse and open their mouths before their minds.

Gabriel Gomez, like most Massachusetts Republicans, would be a centrist Democrat in almost any other state. There is not a single Republican now serving in statewide office in Massachusetts. The state legislature is currently 84% Democrat. Conservatives simply cannot get elected outside of a handful of legislative districts; they are vastly outnumbered by the liberal voters who absolutely dominate the Western part of the state, as well as the "128" ring around Boston.

Consequently, what you sometimes get are candidates who represent a more traditional Democrat/Eastern liberal Republican point of view who run as Republicans in order to get on the ballot against either entrenched incumbents or kooky leftists like Senator Elizabeth Warren, who won in spite of views that place her to the left of Barack Obama, and possibly, of socialist Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders.
We are entering revolutionary times. The law is no longer equally applied. The media are the ministry of truth. The Democratic party is a revolutionary force. And it is all getting scary. -VDH

These are the electable, "establishment" candidates so many people want us to elect in primaries-- including some on here.

That's how NYC got its last "republican" mayor.  Emperor Bloomie didn't want to have to work his way up the democrat party patronage chain, so he skipped it by signing up with a very compliant, very liberal "republican" party in NYC, and the rest is history.
