A prosecutor. A politician. A businessman. And a citizen activist. The biographies of the four Democrats vying to replace Edward Kennedy in the U.S. Senate could determine whom voters choose in a primary election that features a field of candidates with remarkably similar policy positions on everything from the war in Afghanistan to health care.

Dammit. Ya beat me to it.
The people of this state deserve EXACTLY the government they elect. You sould think that after 40 or 50 years of an essentially one-party rule people would see the freaking light and want a little of that "diversity" they are always spewing forth about. Guess that ol' ideological hypocracy just keeps on continuing.

They want a diversity of color...not a diversity of ideas. They see opposing views as extremely threatening....intellecual xenophobia..

Please vote for anyone of these fine upstanding folks.

Which one? It really doesn't matter.

We have the system totally locked in for one party rule. And when we laughably complain about improving education, or services, or whatever, remember this ...

We've been the ones running the show here in Massachusetts for 50 years. We're the ones who brought you the ills we promise to fix!

But, as long as we keep promising to fix our mess, you sheeple keep voting for us.

I love you voters!!!

Man, this is a great state.

Vote for that nice Cokely lady, or that Celtics guy, or Mike Cappuccino, it doesn't matter.

All us state employees here in the Bay State love the democrat set-up. It's a one party dream. No new ideas coming in to screw things up.

Just promise the sheeple more stuff, promise to fix the problems caused by our 50 years of democrat ideology, and after the election, let the good times ROLL back to the same old thing.

I love you voters!!!

We know a couple of things. Stephen Pagliuca is an opportunist who just thought, "Hey, maybe I could be a senator. What do they do?" The commenters here don't know the difference between state government and federal government. And they can't account for how the string of Republican clown governors didn't make everything perfect, which they seem to believe they can.

The only real message that can be sent is to not go to the polls and vote for any of them...that would send a message, but won't happen in good ole Massachusetts.

Keep hiring the same type of people...get the same results.

i didn't read this story at all,, I just know that for the past 50 years the liberal democrats,, when not indicted for corruption or taken to court for murder (Kennedy) have destroyed the industrial state/commonwealth of Massachusetts. Elections are coming again, and at my age, I really don't give a damn that you party politic idiots keep voting in the same liberals. I'd just like one of you to tell me a right that you have, that you didn't lose 40 years ago. WE THE PEOPLE in Mass, means we the jerks, and they know it.9246

Yeah, we need changes from this 1 party domination. Our schools are too good, with top rankings in MCAS scores. Our healthcare is too good with 99%of the population covered. Too many college educated professionalls making too high salaries.

Please, can't some Republican get elected and turn us into Alabama?

Dear Mr. Westminster,

Sadly, you're unable to connect how voting for any mouth breathing democrat, exclusively, either local, state or federal, has led to every problem these current Senate hopefuls are promising to fix.

Sadly, you seem to lack even a basic understanding of 'how government works'. The occasional Republican Governors you refer to, who ineffectively attempted to serve, all had to deal with the 50 year democrat super majority in the Massachusetts legislature.

You know, that 50 year super majority who essentially enacted EVERYTHING and OVERRODE the legislation of Republican governors WHENEVER THEY WANTED.

Now go back to your little town job and hope the big bad Governor doesn't cut your local aid AGAIN.

The voters of Massachusetts, to their everlasting ignorance, re—elected Kennedy every six years after he left Mary Jo Kopechne to die on that night in 1969. Over a third of a century has passed without anyone elucidating the ideological component in that tragedy. What is right or left about condemning behavior that is so utterly beyond the pale? Massachusetts is the bluest of blue states: Are there no other reflexively anti—military socialists who are capable of representing it?

Quite simply I call it "Stockholm Syndrome" where the victim somehow falls for the criminal!

I still can't understand why anyone would vote democrat, against their best interests and economic well being!

Thousands of empty-headed voters keep falling for the likes of Kennedy, Kerry and Frank.
As political prisoner's of the Peoples Republic of Massachusetts, we have been witness to a completely phony democracy run by a permanent Ruling Class. These libtards are an example of that; they have run a consistent fraud since JFK got the Pulitzer Prize for a book he didn't write. It's just Machine Politics with the media in the bag to the politicians. If this whole country follows Massachusetts, we will become another France or Russia. The Left will become our permanent power elite, which has been their goal since Karl Marx in 1848. They now control our education system and colleges, they run the Big Media, but they have an endless need for more and more power. They can never get enough of it.

Oops, you're on to our Marxist/democratic plot for godless world domination! You will soon have FRENCH toast for breakfast every day and you will be forced to wear boxers (briefs will be outlawed altogether) with the visage of Lennin plastered across your ample, bourgeois rump, and you will be forced to wear them on the OUTSIDE so that we can check to make sure you are in compliance.

You will be forced to have affordable, comprehensive healthcare coverage, a decent salary, a late model domestic made automobile, and an affordable mortgage!

There is no point in resistence!!!

BWAhahahahaha!!!!!

The Dems are running scared on the Countrywide scandal.

And when I say, "scared," I mean petrified. Wait till Beck gets ahold of this!

Check out the Hill!
http://thehill.com/homenews/house/63941-democ...

Some big name Democratic lawmakers as well as contributors would be embarrassed and possibly liable for ethics violations if the truth about the list of "VIP's" who benefited from overly generous mortgage terms offered by Countrywide Financial ever came out.

"Countrywide, now owned by Bank of America, was reported to have given VIP loans and treatment to lawmakers and officials at the federal and local level who were in a position to influence policy affecting the mortgage giant. Issa has repeatedly reminded Committee Democrats that Bank of America officials had said they would turn over records on the VIP program – but only in response to a subpoena.

Towns, who RECEIVED A MORTGAGE LOAN FROM COUNTRYWIDE but insists he was not part of the VIP program, has said he declined to launch an investigation because he does not want to interfere with an ongoing Justice Department probe into the matter."

As it turns out, as reported in the articles referenced below, Mr. Towns' congressional district had the highest rate of sub-prime mortgage failures...IN THE COUNTRY!

One report, released by the New York Federal Reserve, was issued during the tenure of one TIMOTHY GEITHNER as President...yeah that Timothy Geithner.

Call me a conspirist if you will, but I have the sneaking suspicion that Mr. Geithner was named as Secretary of the Treasury not because he was the "only person in the country" who understood the TARP mess, as was claimed by everyone from Barack Obama to Congress to the MSM, but because he needed cover from this massive, government-wide scandal that will not go away.
