  •  Republicans almost sure to pick up Kerry's seat? (0+ / 0-)

    In what world is that statement true? It entirely ignores the situation that led to Brown winning, and the significance of it. And Brown wants to be governor, he could give a shit about having another half term special election for the Senate where he would go back to being a nobody.

    •  Not a given . . . (1+ / 0-)

      but that's a big part of the GOP's enthusiasm for the Kerry selection.  Brown would have a very credible shot at picking up the seat.

      I do think that his last campaign against Warren probably hurt his image, but the Dems would still need to run a strong replacement candidate if Kerry is selected.  

      •  If Martha Coakley had run a decent campaign (1+ / 0-)

        she could have won. She assumed she would win based just on party and ran a very lackluster campaign. Plus she was not at all a compelling candidate. Brown gets way too much credit for his win in an off year special election

          ... that Martha is a fucking idiot. Sorry.

          First she seriously fucked up a major daycare abuse scandal case that turns out to have been 100% bullshit and people went to jail for years falsely accused.

          Second she just ran a total political persecution wasting $millions against the idiot former treasurer, because.... freedom. It was both a political prosecution (something we don't do in the US?) and it was bad law and a waste of taxpayer money.

          Third, yes she ran the worst campaign in forever, the people she chose to have around her are idiots, and she is an idiot who let a girly-mag centerfold moron who lives off his wife's 7 figure TV salary win TED KENNEDY's Senate seat.

          She is TOXIC, period.

            Anybody with a D after their name was going to win. She didn't even campaign until the last like 2 weeks and then the damage was already done.
