"Brown has to beat Coakley by 4.8 percent plus, or he loses outright."
American Digest's Master of 'Massachusettes' Seamus O'Hammer will do your arithmetic for you:
"Herald Today:Read the rest, via American Digest, here.
Secretary of State William F. Galvin projects between 1.6 million and 2.2 million voters, out of a total of 4 million**, will show up at the polls today despite weather predictions of a mix of rain and snow. More than 105,000 voters have applied for absentee ballots."Important information is always in the paper, but you have to mine it, it's not front and center. There's your margin of fraud right there. Not one of those ballots will be cast for Brown, one way or the other. They are comatose people in Nursing Homes, recently dead, you name it. Their names are farmed as sure as any field, all by the Democrats. Ballot boxes will be stuffed in places like Springfield and Lowell, no doubt, but there's a limit to how many people you can count that way. A place that votes 100% Dem is not a target-rich environment for Democrats in a statewide election. The absentee ballots are 4.7 percent of the total. Brown has to beat Coakley by 4.8 percent plus, or he loses outright. And as a practical matter, if it's not quite a bit more than that, he loses in the folderol after.
I'm kind of up about this whole Brown phenomenon, even though he's probably not the kind of Repub you'd get down here in Virginia. Nonetheless, he's pledged to vote against Obamacare, and that's giving him a free pass this inning, particularly among voters in his own state.
Nonetheless, heed the warning above. If anyone would care to fund an outside investigation, I'd take an educated guess that outright machine fraud has been guaranteeing Democrat seats and majorities in a lot of places over the past two decades including Wisconsin, Minnesota, Michigan, Illinois, Ohio, Masachusetts, Connecticut, Pennsylvania, California, Oregon, and New Mexico. If Brown actually wins and then gets sacked by the usual suspects, as happened in Minnesota to Senator Coleman, I'd expect a legal and political donnybrook--the likes of which we've never seen--to follow.
"Tea Parties" have been erupting across the United States since Obamanation took office. Genuine grassroots middle class and working class tax revolts for the most part, they've been rounding dissed or simply ignored by the rapidly declining moonbats in the MSM. But it's just possible that the greatest Tea Party since the original one is now unfolding on the same turf where ordinary working class citizens and tradesmen struck the first blow, over 200 years ago, for what eventually became the United States of America.
How utterly appropriate.
