(see their article below) (if you must!)
Of course, what the august BMG doesn’t get is that all the characteristics they wish The Coakster had “…a strong raison d’etre, an animating passion, a sense of compassion for real people and some drive for something other than a job promotion … dammit, something Kennedy-esque.” are exactly the things she doesn’t possess (or her campaign, for that matter!)
Interestingly, these Democrats are making the same mistake now, that they did in the PresO election. They presumed that they owned the politics of the moment… but forgot the “moment’ part of the equation.
Momentum has moved on. The people have moved on. The needs of America have moved on. The Democrats haven’t.
They’re stuck. Stuck with their continued botching of American security. Stuck with their massive unemployment. Stuck with their bloated programs that no one wants. Stuck with a rising tide of public opinion against them. And, they don’t know which way to turn. They’re scared. They’re threatened. Poor babies.

|Yikes. From Public Policy Polling — no numbers yet, but remember, this is not Rasmussen, which tends to slant Republican:
Let’s just be obvious about this: Scott Brown has absolutely no business being in the same area code as Martha Coakley. Not to be too personal (we’ve met, he’s nice), but ideologically, he is a predictable George W. Bush Republican — (pro-torture, anti-health care, etc.), as much of a breath of fresh air as a high school locker room.
Unfortunately this results from a heretofore dull, lackluster campaign from Coakley. What her campaign needs, and has sorely lacked for months, is a strong raison d’etre, an animating passion, a sense of compassion for real people and some drive for something other than a job promotion … dammit, something Kennedy-esque. A teaspoon of that would be most welcome.
This election day we’ll all have a chance to start righting the ship of America. Turning to starboard… away from SOCIALISM, away from PROGRESSIVISM, toward a bright future of a once-again FREE America.
