A Republican in Massachusetts? That is like dividing by zero; it will cause a black hole to form somewhere.
Or worse yet, a collapse in the wavefunction of the Universe.

I'm just finishing up my rocketship now.

she's just that.

At first, she had a lot of her own ideas.

Then, the Democrat machine took over and straightened her out. She's in lock step now!

Can't spell her state right, like the Obama didn't know how many states there were.
Attacking a reporter, Wow, if a Republican or conservative did that it would be on the news every night for a week.

I think about the hereafter. I go somewhere to get something, then wonder what I'm here after ?

Hey as I said, she ain't my gal, but I read this and couldn't resist passing it along~

You may be a Scott Brown voter if:

Unlike Martha Coakley’s campaign, you know how to spell “Massachusetts.”

■You’re wondering why last week liberals were so angry that the word “Negro” was listed on the 2010 census form, but now that Harry Reid uses it . . . nothing to see here, folks, move along.

■You belong to a union, and they’re telling you to vote for Martha Coakley, and when you ask your pinky-ring thug business agent about the 40 percent tax he wants to impose on your “Cadillac” health plan, he slowly takes the stogie out of his mouth and says, "Fugeddaboudit, da boys will take of all-a youse."

■You’re puzzled as to who killed the three U.S. soldiers in Afghanistan on Monday, because Martha Coakley said there aren’t any terrorists there anymore.

■You heard that the Amish are going to be exempt from the Obama-Coakley health rationing, and you’re wondering, how does one become Amish?

■You’re angry that, when you had to take a pay cut in 2009 to keep your job, the Democrats on Beacon Hill jacked up the sales tax by 25 percent.

■You’re wondering why the cops, who should know Martha Coakley best, are all endorsing Scott Brown.

Now, I suppose all three Coakley supporters will have a "you'll like Scott Brown if..." list? C'mon, post it.

Democrat Martha Coakley helped keep an innocent man in prison to advance her political career
Martha Coakley was a party to what could best be described as a judicial lynching, the equivalent of what happened in the Bad Old Days when a black man was accused of raping a white woman.

But what did Martha Coakley do when the Parole Board voted unanimously (5-0) to pardon Gerald Amirault? She did everything in her power to see that he stayed in prison, including sending an assistant DA to oppose his release at the hearing.

In a bid to be re-elected Governor of Massachusetts, Governor Jane Swift, rejected the Parole Board’s decision. There is little doubt, however, that Martha Coakley’s actions strengthened Governor Swift’s resolve to deny Gerald Amirault’s release from prison.

Governor Jane Swift sold Gerald Amirault’s freedom for what she hoped would be another term as Governor of Massachusetts, but the voters chose Mitt Romney instead. Martha Coakley worked harder than Jane Swift to keep an innocent man in prison, seemingly for political advantage also.

The Chappaquiddick accident that took Mary Jo Kopechne’s life was just that – a tragic accident. In contrast, Attorney General Martha Coakley’s campaign to keep a falsely convicted man behind bars was intentional and politically motivated.

Is it thrue that, should Brown win, a) the dems could lose their fillibuster-proof Senate majority; and thus b) Brown could stop the gov't takeover of healthcare juggernaut?
Unfortunately the answer is no. They are already finalizing plans to delay the swearing in if he wins. Our wussie governors' appointee will probably cast the vote before Brown could be sworn in. That's why they're rushing to get this out of reconciliation. That's why Obama is advising them to forgo formal committee procedure. It's all so they can force a vote before Brown can do anything should Coakley lose. The Democrats are really showing their true colors on this one.

Poll shocker: Scott Brown surges ahead in Senate race
By Jessica Van Sack Thursday, January 14, 2010

Riding a wave of opposition to Democratic health-care reform, GOP upstart Scott Brown is leading in the U.S. Senate race, raising the odds of a historic upset that would reverberate all the way to the White House, a new poll shows.

Although Brown’s 4-point lead over Democrat Martha Coakley is within the Suffolk University/7News survey’s margin of error, the underdog’s position at the top of the results stunned even pollster David Paleologos.

“It’s a Brown-out,” said Paleologos, director of Suffolk’s Political Research Center. “It’s a massive change in the political landscape.”

The poll shows Brown, a state senator from Wrentham, besting Coakley, the state’s attorney general, by 50 percent to 46 percent, the first major survey to show Brown in the lead.

Scott Brown swearing-in would be stalled to pass health-care reform
By Frank Quaratiello Saturday, January 9, 2010

It looks like the fix is in on national health-care reform - and it all may unfold on Beacon Hill.

At a business forum in Boston Friday, interim Sen. Paul Kirk predicted that Congress would pass a health-care reform bill this month.

“We want to get this resolved before President Obama’s State of the Union address in early to mid-February,” Kirk told reporters at a Greater Boston Chamber of Commerce breakfast.

But if Brown wins, the entire national health-care reform debate may hinge on when he takes over as senator. Brown has vowed to be the crucial 41st vote in the Senate that would block the bill.

The U.S. Senate ultimately will schedule the swearing-in of Kirk’s successor, but not until the state certifies the election.

The U.S. Senate ultimately will schedule the swearing-in of Kirk’s successor, but not until the state certifies the election.

Friday, a spokesman for Secretary of the Commonwealth William Galvin, who is overseeing the election but did not respond to a call seeking comment, said certification of the Jan. 19 election by the Governor’s Council would take a while.

“Because it’s a federal election,” spokesman Brian McNiff said. “We’d have to wait 10 days for absentee and military ballots to come in.”

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.

Palosi will do anything she wants to forward her agenda. If she can speed up a swearing in for her benefit, she can also delay one.

You can bet, if need be, it WILL happen.

In this case Dennis it's Harry Reid that will be causing the delay in the Senate until after a vote on the healthcare bill can be made. Technically it's all legal. But as I said before, between the attack ads and the intentional delaying of the swearing in if they lose it really shows the Democrats true colors.

Jag72,

that happened to Kerry Healy in the last election.

She was leading by a good margin and ended up loosing the election. Her fall from grace was attributed to her running a negative ad campaign late in the race. Poll numbers confirmed her decline when the ad campaign kicked off.

Fwiw..

I did a little research last night on Coakley and the alleged justice system she heads in Mass. IF you want to believe the trash I found, She is worse than Mike Nifong, who should be in prison for life over the way he persecuted the Duke Univerity Lacrosse players..
She is pure evil, venal to a fault, and undeniably stupid..
A pox on the liberal "elites"

Jag....vote, vote, please vote!!! It's unfair, but really this election could make a very substantial difference in the way Obama does business until the November elections. That seat will send a message to the Whitehouse if he can pull it off.

Obama keeps his distance from Mass. race
By Joseph Curl Friday, January 15, 2010

Coming off stinging election losses in Virginia and New Jersey -- not to mention Copenhagen, where he failed to win the 2016 Olympics for his hometown of Chicago -- President Obama is staying away from what could become another painful loss.

Even though the campaign of Massachusetts Attorney General Martha Coakley has been making quiet entreaties, the president has no plans to visit her in the last week of the special election to fill the Senate seat once held by the late Edward M. Kennedy.

"It's not on our schedule to go to next week," White House spokesman Robert Gibbs said matter-of-factly.

With Mrs. Coakley flagging in the polls and Republican Scott Brown closing fast -- one recent polls puts him 2 points ahead -- Mr. Obama has decided to keep his fingerprints off a race that would be an embarrassment for Democrats should they lose, given that Mr. Obama won the state in 2008 by a 27 point margin.

I read on the web that Teddy's widow's endorsement may have HURT Coakley. Obama's appearance might actually backfire on both of them.

Obama's ego tells him that his appearance alone will be the deciding factor...he might be right.

If he goes and her numbers tank....sweeeeet.
