Today’s special election in Massachusetts is historical, yes, but even though there are still a few hours to go before the polls close today, a loser has emerged and I dare say it’s ranking at the bottom of the political landfill will be a long stay.
Watching how the campaigns are handling the fever-pitch race that is, effectively, a referendum on the Obama administration and the progressive liberal Democrat majority has laid bare one thing: those liberal progressive Democrats are truly nasty, evil people and the unintended consequences of their actions over the last year is going to keep them in a world of hurt for a very, very long time. There are endless reports coming in about campaign signs for Martha (“Curling Iron”) Coakley right at the doors of voting precincts (illegal within 150 feet of a precinct in Massachusetts). There are losers hanging around precincts handing out absentee ballots. She has union members (from New York’s UFCW Local One, no less) manning one of her offices, kicking out a reporter and calling them a Nazi.
By 3:45 p.m., the Massachusetts Secretary of State had received two separate reports of voters being given ballots already filled out for them.
Then the markets closed higher today on hopes of a Scott Brown victory, which is hysterically funny when you remember that among the hosts of Coakley’s D.C. fundraiser last week were Eli Lilly (up 4.4percent at $37.41), Humana (up 7.1 percent at $51.94).
And while His Transparency “was both surprised and frustrated” with what he apparently sees as needless fuss over Ded Ted’s replacement, White House press secretary Robert Gibbs, however inadvertently, actually called it correctly: “In many ways we’re here because of that upset and anger.”
The Democrat-controlled Congress is busy planning how to ram their visions of health care “reform” down America’s throat and the rising backlash against their tactics and, indeed, against their progressive liberal ideology is becoming more and more severe.
So severe, that true to the form of all yellow-bellied selfish cowards, Democrats are turning tail and dropping out of 2010 elections left and right. And the pious spinning begins. Among the louder dropouts is the infamous sleazeball Senator Chris Dodd (D-Conn). Perhaps to spend some time licking his wounds at his Countrywide sweetheart-deal-bought cottage in Ireland?
