Coakley's Thugs

Reporter stumbles chasing hopeful for Kennedy seat
Reporter stumbles chasing hopeful for Kennedy seat

BOSTON – A reporter trying to question the Democrat seeking to replace Edward Kennedy in the Senate has been involved in a scuffle with one of her advisers.

John McCormack of the Weekly Standard fell Tuesday night near Attorney General Martha Coakley. He was audiotaping her while trying to pass a metal grate on a Washington sidewalk.

Photos and video show Coakely adviser Michael Meehan trying to help McCormack up. (LOL)

What the heck, they haven't even tried to hide their bias for several years, although this does seem a bit far to port.  Gateway has tons on this, here, here2, and here3.

Ted's Seat

Just last week I read that the DNC was urging House democrats to run with Obama when they go home to campaign.  Unless.   Unless his poll nunbers should fall into the low 40s, at which point it's every man for himself.  Ahem.

Twitter / West Wing Report: Latest Obama polls: 45% ap ...

While dismissing any real possibility that Martha Coakley will lose the "Kennedy" senate seat. Rick Klein [The Note] affirms that Mass Democrats are terrorized by the closeness of the race. 
And, asked whether she’s asked President Obama to campaign for her, Coakley told reporters: “I haven’t.”

And this ... Desperate Dems try to Palinize Massachusetts Senate race

Frantic over the possibility that a Democrat might lose the race to replace Sen. Ted Kennedy in Massachusetts, the Democratic National Committee has sent its top spinner, Hari Sevugan, to the aid of Democratic candidate Martha Coakley, who appears to be rapidly losing ground to Republican Scott Brown. But what can Sevugan do to shore up Coakley's struggling campaign? Well, he spent his first day on the job trying to tie Brown to Sarah Palin.

Early Monday afternoon, Sevugan sent out an email to reporters featuring a link to a story on the lefty website TPM. The headline: "Is Sarah Palin Avoiding Mass Senate Race?" The story quoted a Democratic strategist saying that "it's interesting" that Palin is "nowhere to be found in this race." TPM conceded that GOP sources say there has been "no talk" about Palin visiting Massachusetts. But that didn't stop Sevugan, who is quoted declaring that Palin's supporters "are anxious for her to weigh in." At the top of his email to journalists, Sevugan wrote, "Come on, Sarah, why are you being so shy?"

Ain't this fun?

CRC report on ACORN
 DIY Kit:  study commissioned by John Conyers (D-Mich.) and Barney Frank (D-Mass.)

Curmudgeonly & Skeptical

Here's a snippet. from Report On ACORN An Incompetent Whitewash

Not surprisingly, the new Congressional Research Service report on ACORN continues the Democrats’ coverup of President Obama’s favorite advocacy group.

The CRS report commissioned by House Judiciary Committee chairman John Conyers (D-Mich.) and House Financial Services Committee chairman Barney Frank (D-Mass.) –both longtime ACORN allies– is a whitewash.

The first finding Conyers and Frank crow about in a press release is this:

    There were no instances of individuals who were allegedly registered to vote improperly by ACORN or its employees and who were reported “attempting to vote at the polls.”

This is demonstrably false.  Darnell Nash of Cleveland, Ohio, was registered to vote nine times by ACORN. After fraudulently casting a ballot, he was convicted of both vote fraud and voter registration fraud and sentenced to six months imprisonment. ACORN remains under investigation ....

Aside from sneering at a certain "religion" started by a science fiction writer, on a bet, and which depends on scare tactics, and endless litigation to squelch discussion of  their cult, and pointing out that Islam is a cultural desert, hate machine, and mortal enemy of free men everywhere, I avoid, other than philosophically, religious discussion on this blog.  Live and let live is my motto.  Anyway, this does fall under the philosophical rubric, because we, all of us, have asked ourselves this same question at one time.  Or, so you'da thunk. 

Disclosure: I was born a Baptist, raised as, and am still, a Catholic.  I believe that the Blessed Mother would not wear patent leather shoes, nor chew gum. Additionally, I was ordained  a  minister (now Bishop) in the Universal Life Church (so I can marry people and give ad hoc funeral eulogies).

David Gergen's (Future) Epitaph
To paraphrase Mary McCarthy on Lillian Hellman, every word that comes out of his mouth is a cliche, and that includes “the,” “but,” and “and.”  Almost nothing he says is ever original, insightful or thoughtful, although he delivers his empty phrases in a professorial honk that seems to convey authority.  If you want to know what everybody else within the Beltway is thinking, Dave is your go-to guy.(Michael Walsh)

At the terminal, the couple fought in the passenger waiting area. They fought outside in the parking lot. Elizabeth was sobbing, out of control, incoherent. As their aides tried to avert their eyes, she tore off her blouse, exposing herself. “Look at me!” she wailed at John and then staggered, nearly falling to the ground.
