Andrea Saul’s Roadside Conversion

August 9th, 2012

A follow-up to The First Rule About Romneycare, inspired by Conservatives blast Romney on health care (Rosalind Helderman and Aaron Blake,Washington Post8/09/12 A4).


“To that point, if people had been in Massachusetts, under Gov. Romney’s health care plan, they would have had health care.” — Romney press secretary Andrea Saul yesterday on Fox, countering the Obama super PAC commercial that implied Romney was indirectly responsible for the death Ranae Soptic, who died of cancer after the Soptics lost their health insurance when her steelworker husband Joe was fired from GST Steel after it was taken over by Bain
“And Saul, yet breathing out threatenings and slaughter against the disciples of the Lord, went unto the high priest and desired of him letters to Damascusto the synagogues, that if he found any of this way, whether they were men or women, he might bring them bound unto Jerusalem. And as he journeyed, he came near Damascus: and suddenly there shined round about him a light from heaven: And he fell to the earth, and heard a voice saying unto him, Saul, Saul, why persecutest thou me? And he said, Who art thou, Lord? And the Lord said, I am Jesus whom thou persecutest: it is hard for thee to kick against the pricks. And he trembling and astonished said, Lord, what wilt thou have me to do? And the Lord said unto him, Arise, and go into the city, and it shall be told thee what thou must do. And the men which journeyed with him stood speechless, hearing a voice, but seeing no man. And Saul arose from the earth; and when his eyes were opened, he saw no man: but they led him by the hand, and brought him into Damascus. And he was three days without sight, and neither did eat nor drink.” – Acts 9:1-9


Maybe Andrea Saul will see the error of her ways and convert,

Or maybe Romney will throw her to the lions to avoid being politically hurt.


The original Saul converted from persecuting Christians to its reverse,

But Andrea Saul’s crime was much, much worse.


Saul converted after being struck from his horse by a mysterious light,

But Andrea Saul’s betrayal was a much more serious slight.


Would recanting her heresy be sufficient,

Or will she replaced by someone more proficient?


Saul 1 lost his job as Christian persecutor.

Will Saul 2 loose her job as Mitt’s main locutor?


Saul rebranded himself with a brand new name.

Could Andrea Saul get away with the same?


Indeed, could this be a trial balloon for Mitt’s own conversion

To attractIndieswith Romneycare in spite of the Tea Party aversion?


Mitt’s possible move to the center appears to have flopped,

Since the Rabid Right immediately that trial balloon popped.


But what if Mitt answers the Right’s call for Saul’s head

By giving them their choice of VP instead?


After all, it makes sense for the crimes of Saul

To be redeemed by elevation of the Apostle Paul.


Here are Hardball’s 8/09/12 reports about the right-wing reaction to Andrea Saul’s Romneycare flub and the increasing pressure on Romney to select Paul Ryan as his running rate.
