I haven't had the time to blog much on the astonishing events taking place up in Taxachusetts. But I have to admit I'm flabbergasted. In a state where "Democrat" seems to be encoded in the gene pool, voters are jumping ship in massive numbers to vote for the REPUBLICAN. Who knew? I sure didn't.
And this isn't really partisan, one way or the other. It appears that Massachusetts' working-class and middle-class voters have finally gotten fed up to here with the state's corrupt machine politics. Somewhat surprisingly, they've also grown sick and tired of the quaint notion that the current, technically vacant senate seat Scott Brown and Martha (Marcia?) Coakley are running for is the "Kennedy seat." When the hell did we ever make Senate seats hereditary fiefdoms?
If any state were to buy this hereditary stuff, it would've been Massachusetts. But now, even generationally-inclined Democrats are inclined to hop to the other side of the aisle.
What they're really fed up with is the political elites--many of whom are snotty, privileged graduates of local school Harvard University. They're sick of being looked down upon. This, too, coupled with the nationwide distaste for the current Congressional healthcare debacle has resulted in a massive voter revolt. Polls are putting Brown significantly ahead as voters go to the polls today.
But read our next post. It ain't in the bag until and unless Brown wins massively. The machine backing Coakley, aided and abetted by the professional fraudsters employed by ACORN and the Marxist SEIU leadership are waiting in the wings, highly skilled and ready to "count" the votes. Just like they did in Minnesota, where careful "counting" and "re-counting" resulted in the fraudulent "election" of the despicable Al Franken.
