Observations on politics, the media and life in Massachusetts and beyond from the left side of the road.

There are flip-flops and then there are full reverse double axels with a degree of difficulty of 4.0 Myth Romney has just pulled one of those off.

From a man who ran for US Senate as, by his own definition, "effectively pro-choice," Romney has now come full circle -- and in just a matter of six months. The Mittster now supports the Human Life Amendment, which shoots way past overturning Roe v. Wade and straight on to offering 14th Amendment rights to balls of cells -- at the expense of the women carrying those cells.

He has zoomed right past support of state rights (a usual winner among the hard right) and over the right hand cliff of the "right to life" movement.

In his quest to disrespect Sam Brownback and Mike Huckabee in the buy-a-vote contest in Ames, Iowa this weekend, Romney has pandered like he has never pandered before -- a rather strong statement coming from this corner.

It's amazing he can look at his pretty faces in the morning.
