Could the bloodbath be starting in........Massachusetts?
    #11798046 - 01/09/10 09:04 PM (11 years, 4 months ago)

In what could be a brutal shot across the bow of the socialist fuckweasel Troika, there is a special election coming on the 19th to fill the Intrepid Submariner's Senate seat.  The Dems had nominated a faithful apparatchik to run for the seat, expecting little if any Republican resistance.  But, oh no, hold onto your little Red Books, my Komrades, a hitherto unknown by the name of Scott Brown has officially pulled even.  With, as they say in the record business, a bullet.

Quote:

Buoyed by a huge advantage with independents and relative disinterest from Democratic voters in the state, Republican Scott Brown leads Martha Coakley 48-47.




Of course, not all is quite as rosy as it might seem

http://www.bostonherald.com/business/healthcare/view.bg?articleid=1224249

Quote:

Even if elected The Dems are going to make Brown wait to be seated until after the crap sandwich that the people of Mass will be actively voting against gets rammed through.

Another source told the Herald that Galvin’s office has said the election won’t be certified until Feb. 20 - well after the president’s address.

Since the U.S. Senate doesn’t meet again in formal session until Jan. 20, Bay State voters will have made their decision before a vote on health-care reform could be held. But Kirk and Galvin’s office said Friday a victorious Brown would be left in limbo.

In contrast, Rep. Niki Tsongas (D-Lowell) was sworn in at the U.S. House of Representatives on Oct. 18, 2007, just two days after winning a special election to replace Martin Meehan. In that case, Tsongas made it to Capitol Hill in time to override a presidential veto of the expansion of the State Children’s Health Insurance Program.

Friday, Brown, who has been closing the gap with Coakley in polls and fund raising, blasted the political double standard.

“This is a stunning admission by Paul Kirk and the Beacon Hill political machine,” said Brown in a statement. “Paul Kirk appears to be suggesting that he, Deval Patrick, and (Senate Majority Leader) Harry Reid intend to stall the election certification until the health care bill is rammed through Congress, even if that means defying the will of the people of Massachusetts. As we’ve already seen from the backroom deals and kickbacks cut by the Democrats in Washington, they intend to do anything and everything to pass their controversial health care plan. But threatening to ignore the results of a free election and steal this Senate vote from the people of Massachusetts takes their schemes to a whole new level. Martha Coakley should immediately disavow this threat from one of her campaign’s leading supporters.”




Knaves.  Thieves, brigands and knaves.

Oh this is so delicious.  I don't know if he can actually pull it out but Coakley is not getting the auto media kiss and the polls are not running in her favor and she doesn't have more money and she is a piece of shit whore.  Well, maybe that last is untrue.  I don't think anybody has ever paid her for sex.

The blood is in the water... the dems are in a lot more trouble than they wish to admit. Unless Barry can make some drastic changes in the next three years, he is going to be the best thing that has ever happened to the republican party in recent history.  The last time the dems @#$#ed with healthcare, they lost 58 (or so) seats in Congress.  You would think they would have learned their lesson by now.

Quote:

Over at National Review’s The Corner, Victor Davis Hanson wrote:

    At home, Obama is becoming laughable and laying the groundwork for the greatest conservative populist reaction since the Reagan Revolution.

Keep in mind that Hanson wrote this last year, in February.

Now that there appears to be increasing regret among some in the media over how they lionized Obama, it is worth reading how Hanson began that blog post:

    Some of us have been warning that it was not healthy for the U.S. media to have deified rather than questioned Obama, especially given that they tore apart Bush, ridiculed Palin, and caricatured Hillary. And now we can see the results of their two years of advocacy rather than scrutiny.

    We are quite literally after two weeks teetering on an Obama implosion—and with no Dick Morris to bail him out—brought on by messianic delusions of grandeur, hubris, and a strange naivete that soaring rhetoric and a multiracial profile can add requisite cover to good old-fashioned Chicago politicking.

It’s worth reading all of Hanson’s post, as most of it has held up very well.

Quote:

I think we have done what we are going to be able to do in Afghanistan. I think that we should plan an exit strategy. Yes. I’m not sure there is a way to succeed. If the goal was and the mission in Afghanistan was to go in because we believed that the Taliban was giving harbor to terrorists. We supported that. I supported that. They’re gone. They’re not there anymore.




Now I am quite aware that there are many here who think we should walk away and that there is some support, though not as great as here, for that amongst the general electorate.  Some support, nowhere near a lot.  And the Present himself does not support that. Ms Coakley appears to be placing herself as softer than the Present, who is widely perceived as being too soft.  She is also positioning herself in the "Too Stupid To Go Out Alone" camp by asserting that the Taliban and terrorists are no longer present in Afghanistan.

I expect a clarification soon in which she will say she didn't say what viewers heard her clearly say.

I suppose I should have worded my post better.

I mean that I am neutral as to caring who wins the race. Since I have started following politics, both the Democrats and Republicans have been interchangeably atrocious.  I don't have the slightest hope in my body that either of these candidates will do the slightest bit of good.

Not to mention, I am not educated enough on the policy positions of either candidate nearly enough to support one or the other.  I'm busy enough trying to make sense of the policy positions of my own local representatives to delve deeply into those of another state's.

Here's a pretty good primer
http://www.lowellsun.com/editorials/ci_14171401
Quote:

Brown, a lawyer, state senator and 30-year veteran of the Massachusetts National Guard, understands that Americans' rights and safety deserve protection. He opposes civilian trials for terror suspects, arguing they should be tried in military court as war criminals. He wants to delay the closure of the Guantanamo Bay detention center in Cuba and halt the scheduled release of the center's 198 detainees to a U.S. prison or an anti-American country where they will be treated as heroes. Brown is smart to urge caution, knowing that 28 released detainees have returned to al-Qaida battle fronts in Afghanistan, Pakistan and Yemen.

Democratic candidate Martha Coakley wants just the opposite. She'd give enemy combatants all the rights of the U.S. Constitution, a federal civilian court
Advertisement
trial to spew anti-American hatred, and taxpayer-funded attorneys to file appeals.

Brown recognizes that raising taxes inhibits economic growth. He knows the U.S. economy works best when citizens have more money to spend and businesses are able to invest in their own growth by adding jobs. Brown is an advocate for smaller government, lower taxes and thoughtful spending. He also believes the national debt we are leaving for our children and grandchildren is immoral and unacceptable, something the Democrats in power don't seem to understand.

Brown is a supporter of charter schools, MCAS testing, merit raises for high-performing teachers, and accountability measures that drive academic success. In fact, he's a Republican who more closely supports President Barack Obama's Race to the Top education initiatives than does Coakley, who would protect teachers' unions first over opportunities for students.

The health-care legislation now under consideration is a bloated program that will cause massive tax increases and lower the quality of care most Americans receive. Brown promises to oppose it. Instead, he'd overhaul the existing private market system to create savings that can be reinvested to expand coverage without raiding the public treasury. That's reform.

Coakley's running to be the 60th vote for Democrats to approve a costly health-care law that cuts Medicare, rewards industry lobbyists, big drugmakers and home districts of congressional members from her own party.

On immigration, Brown opposes policies allowing those who break the law to enter our nation with immunity in order to gain U.S. benefits. It is unfair to those who have waited patiently, sometimes for years, to emigrate here legally. He is against providing driver's licenses and in-state tuition for illegal immigrant families.

As a U.S. senator, Brown would strive to make the vital interest of Massachusetts his top priority. He won't chase political ambitions, a seat at international global warming conferences, a date with an Iranian leader, or contributions from lobbyists currying favor. Instead, he'll chase what matters to fulfill the American dream, fight for it, and bring it on home to Massachusetts where residents can once again prosper with pride.

A vote for Brown is a vote to return to common-sense leadership, financial stability and traditional American values.

The Sun endorses Scott Brown for U.S. Senate in the Jan. 19 special election.

My optimism doesn't quite match your pessimism.  If it did I'd be the insufferably cheerful Mary Martin. But the good guys have a real chance to wrest "Teddy's seat" out from under what is really an execrable skank.  Check out this tiny clip from the debate when he informs David Gergen that he is a partisan hack himself.

In case you missed the money quote, Scott Brown said:

    With all due respect, it’s not the Kennedy seat and it’s not the Democrats’ seat, it’s the people’s seat.

So please, people of Massachusetts, send Brown to Washington to fill your seat.




Little itty bitty minute and a half video from the final debate.  You should all watch as he spanks Gergen for calling it Ted Kennedy's seat.

Also Dems are apparently paying union people to fill up rallies for Coakley even though they aren't going to vote for her:

And anna, darling, i won't need any extra jeans.  In the interest of efficiency I am going to forego pants entirely and watch from a room with a floor drain.

Dem Thug pushes reporter.  "Thug" you ask?  "Surely merely a rogue SEIU member", you say.  Nope.  The thug is a Dem big shot and Obama appointee, Michael Meehan.
http://biggovernment.com/2010/01/13/is-coakley-staffer-who-attacked-report-an-obama-appointee/
Quote:

Big Government contributor Dana Loesch has reported on the Coakley staffer who attacked a Weekly Standard reporter outside a Martha Coakley fundraiser on Capitol Hill. A number of outlets have identified the culprit as Michael Meehan, a long-time Democrat political operative. Mr. Meehan was dispatched to the struggling campaign by the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committe (DSCC).

Mr. Meehan, however, also happens to be a recent Obama appointee. On November 19, President Obama nominated Mr. Meehan to serve on the Broadcasting Board of Governors.

From the White House press release:

    Michael P. Meehan, Member, Broadcasting Board of Governors.
    Michael P. Meehan currently serves as President of Blue Line Strategic Communications, Inc. and as Senior Vice President at Virilion, a digital media company. For over two decades, Meehan served in senior roles for U.S. Senators John Kerry, Barbara Boxer, Maria Cantwell and former Senate Majority Leader Tom Daschle, two presidential campaigns, two U.S. House offices and congressional campaigns in 25 states. Mr. Meehan earned a B.A. in political science from Bates College.

The Broadcasting Board of Governors oversees federal news operations like Voice of America and Radio Free Europe.

I’m not certain attacking reporters who ask politicians challenging questions is the best qualification to provide an objective news voice to oppressed parts of the world. I would hope that our Broadcasting Board of Governors could at least agree that reporters should be free from political assaults.

Our Mr. Meehan has some explaining to do. His Senate confirmation hearing should be a hoot.

Update: A top GOP Senate Aide had this to say in response to this article: “The President should pull his nomination unless he thinks the BBG should be led by a guy now best known for suppressing the freedom of the press.”




The whole world's watching, the whole world's watching, the whole world's watching, the whole world's watching.

Donation of "Hockey Dad" victim's heart overruled by district attorney
Fri, 25 Jan 2002 22:17:16 | Katharine Ristich

Boston, MA - Thomas "Hockey Dad" Junta was sentenced today to 6 to 10 years in prison for killing Michael Costin during the course of a fight at a hockey rink. Another senseless death may have resulted from the manslaughter case, say some doctors, because the district attorney overruled a request from Costin's family to donate his heart in a transplant to save another person's life, according to an article in the January 25, 2002 issue of the Boston Globe.

"Middlesex District Attorney Martha Coakley blocked the donation of Costin's heart after he was diagnosed clinically brain-dead," writes Sean P Murphy of the Globe, "to preclude any possibility that his assailant's lawyer might contend at the trial that Costin died of a pre-existing heart condition rather than the beating."

Although the move may have made sense as a matter of legal strategy, Murphy notes, some doctors say that a patient was probably denied a heart transplant because of it, and that preserving the heart would not have strengthened the prosecution's case any further "because it was demonstrably healthy, and transplant surgeons would have rejected it if any defects were discovered." The medical evidence, they argue, showed overwhelmingly that Costin died from head trauma and that his heart was fine, and that would have been enough to counter any doubts raised by the defense by questioning the cause of death.




This was written 8 years ago before anybody knew she would be running for this seat.  Who here wants this woman anywhere near any potential health care decision?  More importantly, who in Mass could possibly want her in charge?  I realize they kept re-electing a murderer but this may be too much even for those morons.
