More internecine Republican strife

I'd missed this, and I bet I'm not the only one: On Sunday, the MetroWest Daily News ran an op-ed by Chris Egan, who--along with his father Richard and brother Michael--was a George W. Bush "Pioneer" in 2004.

Basically, Egan complains that the Massachusetts GOP was AWOL as Boston-based Fidelity Investments began looking into a big North Carolina expansion. Sometimes Egan blames Ranch Kimball, the state's secretary of economic development. Sometimes he actually seems to blame Governor Mitt Romney.

What makes Egan's piece especially weird is that he's reportedly a member of LG Kerry Healey's finance team. Obviously, this raises a bevy of questions. Did Egan have Healey's blessing to write the piece? If so, is she trying to disassociate herself from Romney's economic legacy? And does she really think she could pull this off? If not, what in God's name is going on here?

It's no surprise that Jim Rappaport has bad things to say about the current incarnation of the Mass. GOP. But Egan's rant confounds me.

Any thoughts?
