In today's edition of The Boston Globe columnist Scot Lehigh goes after gubernatorial candidate Charlie Baker for going to a fund raiser for Bill Hudak, a candidate for nomination as the Republican contender for the Sixth Congressional District.
Per Mr Lehigh, Mr Hudak is a "Birther" and referred to then Candidate Barak Obama as Osama bin Laden. The second is the kind of campaigning that is very low rent and should be avoided by all reasonable people. The first is an issue that has passed its prime. Further, at this point I would hate to see the President impeached for his birth certificate, only to find him replaced by Vice President Joe Biden. That would be going from the frying pan into the fire. Plus, it is strange to me that the Democratic Party would know that Mr Obama wasn't born in the US and then thought it could keep that under wraps for three, four or five years. This was an interesting question in 2008, but it should be long gone as an issue in 2010.
But, having established, I hope, that I have no support for Mr Hudak's comments, I wonder, since I have been down in Virginia for several days, on vacation, if Mr Lehigh has done a similar column denouncing Democrats who have not distanced themselves from those who call the "Tea Party" movement racist.
