POLL: Massachusetts Senate Race Now A Toss-Up. I had noticed that the powers-that-be in Massachusetts were acting kinda nervous, so maybe their own polls say something similar. It must be troubling when your push-pollers ask people if it would affect their vote if the guy was a Nazi and the respondents say “Nope, he’d still be better than Coakley.”
And of course, politicians belonging to a party that calls itself “Democratic” brag they won’t seat the Republican if he’s elected, so they can pass 0bamacare anyway. The party should just rename itself PCP (the Power and Control Party) and be done with it.
