Personal Aside: Obama Supporter Douglas Kmiec Denied Communion and Ray Flynn (Remember Him?) Endorses Hillary Clinton.
Ray and Doug: the Double Talk Twins.
The news that former Boston mayor Ray Flynn endorsed Hillary Clinton is sickening but not surprising. I have always felt he is a duplicitous Irish pol-phony from the time he followed me on what then was the Catholic Family Radio network and broadcast his firm support of Dignity. Anyone who works his head off for Bill Clinton for president while at the same time announcing hes pro-life then accepts Clintons appointment as ambassador to the Vatican then, when his term is finished and George W. Bush is running, endorses Bush and is held forth as a man of conviction, moving to Romney and, after he loses, now to Hillary Clinton, qualifies, does he not? He says he is for Hillary in the Democratic contest and leaves his options open to endorse John McCain after Obama gets the nomination (unless Obama can get to him first). Talk about a charlatan whos all over the lot seeing what job he can pick up next.
Doug Kmiec, as I wrote recently, is an entirely different case. While Flynns worth is minimal to any side he embraces, Kmiec is a thorough-going brilliantly intellectual, highly burnished with all the sharp edges rounded off traitor along the lines of the legendary Kim Philby. He has just announced as an advertisement for himself that he was denied Communion because he is a supporter of Barack Obama. This announcement was probably made to win points with the Obama people as a martyr.
If Obama makes it, Kmiec will be nominated for a senior post in the judiciary, maybe Supreme Court. With a Democratic Senate as is likely, he would be a cinch to be confirmed.
