The camera work made it unwatchable. Who the hell was holding the camera, Napolitano?
Misinformation and dirty tricks won’t help the Republicans. Try to play clean!
Coakley vs. Brown, the Very Special Election
Most readers are well aware that Tuesday’s Coakley-Brown contest in Massachusetts is The Big One, Elizabeth–as Fred Sanford used to say, and it actually is the biggest horse race since Secretariat won the Triple Crown in 1973.
That happens to be one year after the last Republican won a senate seat in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.
Thirty-seven years is a long time for one political party to have a lock on any state’s seats in the United States Senate but on Tuesday that string just may be broken.
On a political level, it’s the most important race since the one that ended on November 4th, 2008.
In 2009, Virginians and New Jerseyians sent duplicate messages to Washington concerning what happened last November. If they didn’t say they made a mistake, they did the next best thing by making it vividly clear that they still favored change they could believe in but the antithesis of the change Obama had promised.
In essence, after a year of seeing what Obama was plotting and perpetrating, those good citizens of Virginia and New Jersey said, “We want none of it! Not Obama’s incredible deficits that our kids and grandkids will be paying in perpetuity, not the multi-billion dollar bailouts, not the Obamacare scheme to nationalize health care, not the bowing and scraping to kings, emperors, and sheiks by an American president!”
They had enough after less than a year and on January 19th, the electorate in the Bay State will get their chance to protest, to just say no, to register their opposition to Obamanomics, to Obamacare, to the abomination America has witnessed over the last 12 months simply by pulling the lever or pressing a button for Scott Brown in the special election to determine who assumes “the Kennedy seat” in the United States Senate or who gets to sit in the peoples’ seat in the United States Senate.
The choice is pretty simple, really. Continue the Massachusetts status quo by sending party hack Martha Coakley to Washington to continue mind-numbing fiscal insanity and divisive politics or send the president and his congress another message of dissent.
Rarely has there been a time that demanded an infusion of new, revivifying blood into D.C. and to the nation, rarely has there been a better time to quote Howard Beale’s plea in ”Network” that we stick our heads out windows and scream, ”We’re fed up and I’m not going to take this anymore!”
That may be a tad extreme but the times are extreme.
Just two months ago, little known Massachusetts Republican State Senator Scott Brown, labeled “a hunk” by Monica Crowley yesterday, had as much chance of toppling the Democrat machine and Ms. Coakley as Ronald Reagan . . .

Coakley vs. Brown: Updates
What?? Me worry??
Complacent Martha or is it Marcia: Somehow, it doesn’t seem that Massachusetts A.G. is awfully worried about her Tuesday match-up with State Sen. Scott Brown for “the Kennedy seat” in the United States Senate.
For one thing, she’s staged a lackluster, non-campaign as if she knew from the start she would end up a loser even though, at the start, she seemed a shoo-in to head to D.C. to be that crucial 60th vote for Obamacare. (That assumes Harry Reid doesn’t pull an end run and goes to the reconciliation ploy needing only 51 Democrats to foist that obamanation on the American people.)
For another thing, Martha Coakley really seems as if she doesn’t want the job.
As Brian McGrory writes for Boston.com in an article titled, “Race Is in a Spinout,” despite her claims to have traveled the state meeting tremendous people, “If she did, it was under the cover of darkness, with an assumed name . . . Literally, she all but vanished. She refused to debate on TV unless it was exactly on her terms. She went days without venturing out in public:” http://bit.ly/8qLU4S
Not exactly the best way to win a seat in the Senate.
A Kennedy Weighs In: A scion of the Kennedy clan doesn’t seem too worried either, not even concerned enough to get her name straight.
Speaking to reporters after President Obama tried to rally the troops and dragging out the worn-out Bush card to blame GWB for every problem in the universe, Rep. Patrick Kennedy (D. R.I) repeatedly referred to “Marcia Coakley,” . . .
