  •  Point is, Brown can be beaten (0+ / 0-)

    He just lost an election last month.  The actual special election is months away, and Brown's margins over his possible opponents won't hold.  However, even if you think they will ... we do have a "name" candidate in Ted Jr.

        Or Ted Jr., or Capuano, or Patrick, or any number of Democrats.  You may scoff, but once the prospect of Brown beating Coakley was laughable, to say the least.  What's done is done ... Kerry is nominated and will likely be confirmed. If you cannot suggest a concrete candidate, but instead prefer to grumble, then you are part of the problem.

        ... and nobody, D or R or unenrolled, has ever referred to him as "Satanic Panic".

        Coakley has a LOT of enemies; I only voted for her in the special, I always vote against her in the primaries and write in Mickey Mouse in the general.  When she runs for governor I'll vote against her again.

        The only congressman who would have a real problem would be Lynch, because his conservative Catholicism doesn't play well with a lot of the populace.  And I think he'd still pull it out.
