…as a UN Nuclear inspector in Iran, I’m sure her eagle eyes are just what Ahmadinejad is looking for in an inspector; at least that is my thought after reading this:
“I know there were people following, including people from the Brown campaign who have been very aggressive in their stalking. I’m not sure what happened. I know something occurred. I’m not privy to the facts. I’m sure it will come out, but I’m not aware of that.”.
I’m not privy to the facts!? Lets look at that picture again:
After that performance maybe the idea that she gets her foreign affairs info from her sister isn’t such a bad thing.
Perhaps this is a blessing in disguise for the democrats, if she continues to act this idiotic in public they can blame a possible Brown win not on a republican surge but on the worst candidate evah!.
…that I promised at the begining of the day.
In the diner nobody knew much about the election but when I talked about it every person but one expressed an opinion and that opinion was all Scott Brown. Once I mentioned that the difference was the passage of Obamacare or no that seemed to cinch it.
At the Butcher Shop it was empty but nobody was really talking about the election. Only Kathy expressed an opinion and it was in support of Coakley. It seemed as if nobody was really interested in the subject.
I don’t know if this is good or bad news, but it is what it is.
Today I’m going to be meeting a friend of mine at the local coffee shop for lunch. They have first rate fish so it will be hopping a bit.
After lunch I’ll hit Romano’s to pick up something to cook for supper.
It is a great opportunity to make an experiment, I’m going to bring up the Brown Race and see what people say.
Let’s see if there is any excitement. His abortion stance certainly doesn’t excite me…
…but the Boston Phoenix must be actually scared because they are trying to paint him as anti-abortion…I wish.
Update: The Right Wing Gaming room left a comment on my earlier post concerning the subject. He lives in a different part of the state so It will be very interesting to see if he is hearing different things than I am. How about it fellow gamer, what are you hearing up in the Northeast corner of the state?
…were stated today by Jules Crittenden.
Fortunately for Coakley, this is Massachusetts, and she’s up against someone with a lot less name-recognition and the full strength of the Mass GOP behind him … snort … excuse me.
We have a history of electing Republican governors but never republicans representatives, During the height of that streak we couldn’t get republicans to run in districts let alone win in ones where they did. I can’t remember the last time were the democratic super majorities were challenged. The Mass GOP has all the competency of Lt. The Honourable George Colthurst St. Barleigh.
Meanwhile, she’s got heavy union vote insurance in this special mid-winter election. There is no reason to think she really has anything to worry about.
The teachers and public employee unions are going to go all out on this election, with an economy in the tank these guys know where their bread is buttered and are not going to do anything that they perceive could effect their job future…and it will.
And the worst of it:
As for the Globe, while the due diligence is impressive, I sense a nose-holding, “She’s timid and inept, coddled diddlers, but we need her to carry on Ted’s legacy” final endorsement coming on.
Last night was game night, 4 guys excluding myself showed up, all vote and all are independents. Not a single one believes Brown has a chance. I have yet to speak to an actual voter in person who thinks so.
I’ll still vote for him, and I’ll make the case for him with whoever I can but I’m not going to get my hopes all up nor my knickers in an uproar if he loses. I may be known for my mindless optimism but I’m just not seeing anything on the ground to support it here.
Speaking of mindless optimism and Lt. George…
This election has every chance of going the way of that trial.
Update: Glenn is right, we should still go all out, but we should do so with eyes wide open.
Update 2: Camp of the Saints links, thanks.
My first thought was rats abandoning a sinking ship with the prospect of an even bigger electoral swing. While resetting internet connections and puttering around the house it hit me that this is going to be very bad news for the country.
As long as the prospect of losing an election was in the back of their minds, we have some leverage over these democrats concerning Obamacare. There was the possibility that they might be persuaded to kill the bill.
But like Japanese pilots in world war 2 they have decided to give their seats to the emperor of
socialism government healthcare. The prospect of changing the country and creating a dependent population is too juicy, the post congressional rewards given by the party are too lucrative, their loyalty/fear of party and the powers behind it overrides any worry about what the voters think or what the bill actually contains.
The prospect of regaining an inordinate amount of seats pales before the prospect of this bill passing. Once passed it will NEVER be repealed and the damage to the country will be significant. These Kamikaze Democrats will give up their seats for
Soros the sake of Obamacare. They will have a much greater long term effect than any of their predecessors over the pacific.
Like other great society programs it will take a generation for this damage to really reach its apex, it will do so just in time for me to be the right age to get the full beating from it.
Elections have consequences. Never forget that when as a nation we collectively did this do ourselves by embracing the empty promises of hope and change.
And as always reaping the government we deserve.
Update: Wingnut moi? But hey a link is a link, and I say thanks for it. Just to clarify something; I’m sure there are those on the left who actually believe that socialism in general and socialized medicine in particular is a great idea. They are welcome to that idea. It is because of that belief that some are willing to die politically for their emperor. Dodd is is both a true believer and a corrupt bastard.
