Martha’s strategy: Run out the clock.

( – promoted by Garrett Quinn)

It essentially comes down to what kind of race the establishment would like to see. Already the post-primary analysis centers on how Coakley will coast by virtue of her “discipline.” She needs only not to implode. With Democrats in the majority, one enough to attract the independents Scott Brown needs, the race is over say the spinners on the sidelines. There is no way Ted Kennedy’s seat is going Republican says Mike Capuano, who displayed none of the discipline by recklessly turning into a moonbat to curry favor.

As for the tax pledge, Coakley calls it a gimmick. She’s lining up to serve Harry Reid well.

Meanwhile, the fury of one of the furies, Joan Vennochi wants a coronation. To her the Coakley’s race is a done deal; it is now about affirmation of the male establishment of the first female U.S. Senator. And she wants the big boys to write checks.

This creaky old boy network needs more than a hip replacement. It needs an attitude adjustment.

This, and not the race, will be the narrative. How far the political culture in MA changes, how women will have a say in the musical chairs of succession and how much they will leave their mark on policy. To them Scott Brown is a slight bump in the road. It’s time to prove them wrong. Strike up the theme to Rocky!

    People want Martha Coakley elected because they want to see something different happen.  They want to see change, and they are convinced that sending a person with boobs to Washington will provide them with the change they need.  Truly, there are people that will vote for Martha because she is a woman.  Forget the issues, forget the economy, forget the questionable past of Martha Coakley.  Just vote for her because she has boobs!

    The same thing happened when Deval Patrick became our first black Governor.  He didn’t have any particular background for the job.  In fact, he worked for many of those companies that his leftist followers now attack.  But, Deval had the one quality that all the other candidates lacked – non-white skin color.  “Let’s elect him as our first black Governor” they said.  So how is that working out for everyone?  Did he create the 100,000 jobs he promised?  Did he reduce property taxes as promised?  Did he usher in a new era and culture of government as he promised?  Very simply, Deval Patrick is a failing Governor and his poll numbers prove it.  The economy in Massachusetts proves it.  But at least we get to say we have a black Governor!

    How about Barack Obama?  Having our first black President is a big deal, right?  Well so far he has cost us 2.3 million jobs, another several trillion in long term debt to be paid by our kids, and the taxes he said wouldn’t happen to middle class Americans are already here with more to come.  His poll numbers are at an historic low as well.  So how is that first black President working out for everyone?

    How about electing the first openly gay Congressman, simply because he is gay.  Boy, we sure showed the rest of the country how progressive we are.  Gerry Studds sure made us proud, especially when he was censured by the House of Representatives for having sex with a 17 year old male staff member.  I call it gay child rape, but you can call it whatever you want.  We are all so proud of being first to elect a gay person to national office simply because he was gay.

    I suspect that as many as half of all Democrats will vote for Martha Coakley because she is a woman, and for no other reason.  The very people that will scream and yell about making gender, sexual preference and skin color an issue in the work place will instinctively vote for people based on gender, sexual preference and skin color.

    If we really want to make news by being first to vote for something new then let’s elect a f*ckin monkey to office.  That would be change, wouldn’t it?  That would be the biggest change ever.  Better yet, we could elect a horse that can count by stomping his hoof.  At least that way the stupid animal could keep track of the spending that is going on.  “Hey, Mister Ed, what is the national debt now?”  Stomp, Stomp, Stomp, Stomp, etc.  You get the idea.

    Worst of all is that we are going to have to listen to all the liberal moonbats at the Boston Globe talk endlessly about how wonderful it is to have a US Senator from Massachusetts with a vagina.  “Oh, aren’t we special for electing a woman” they will say.  “Isn’t everything grand” will be the headlines.  We will have an incompetent President, Governor and US Senator, but at least we can hold our heads high in the unemployment lines because we voted based on skin color, gender and sexual preference instead of the issues.
