Why is this senate race between Scott Brown and Martha Coakley in Massachusetts so important? Well for one thing if the Republican candidate, Scott Brown can pull out a victory, it will prevent the libs from having a 60 seat majority, which to remind you, dear reader, holds strong implications for all of us. Plus it would be an amazing victory for a republican to hold a senate seat in what has been SUCH a democratic stronghold. I mean Ted Kennedy’s seat? REALLY?
So there has been lots of bad press floating around about the democratic challenger Martha Coakley, but probably none more horrible than two pieces of information blogged about tonight, at least in my opinion. In the first, Leon Wolf from Redstate points out how as a former district attorney, she let a repulsive pedophile priest off the hook, making the case that
At the very least it suggests that a large part of Coakley’s entire narrative of a candidate – to wit, that she is “tough on crime” (and sex offenders in particular), is more or less crap. Well, at least when it comes to pedophiles. One wonders when she developed a soft spot for pedophiles…
Aaaannnnd, to make matters worse another story has surfaced that will make your head explode (yes, pull out that duct tape before reading). Ace of Spades blogs about a story so utterly disgusting, that I as a survivor of abuse myself, cannot even bear to discuss it. Lets just say a cop rapes his 24 month old niece, and again Coakley as DA does nothing.
At this point, it will amaze me to see how voters in Massachusetts could still possibly vote for the vile Ms. Coakley even despite all the endorsements she has received from so-called friends in *high* places.
For some good news in this race, it does appear that Scott Brown has done the impossible and pulled ahead for the time being which is just so damn awesome.
