The Ominous Parallels

One of Massachusetts Democratic Senate candidate Martha Coakley’s associates shoves John McCormack of the Weekly Standard (video at link), when he attempted to ask the candidate a question.

Recall that it was Dede Scozzafava’s meltdown when interviewed by McCormack in October that helped to put her campaign on the national map — and not in a good way.

Scozzafava, a very liberal Republican eventually dropped out — and then proceeded to back Bill Owens, an equally liberal Democrat to take her seat over fellow Republican Doug Hoffman.

Owens of course won, and then immediately reversed himself on about 57 varieties of campaign promises. So what does this latest attempt by a distaff liberal candidate to intimidate a journalist with the Weekly Standard portend?
