Ten bucks says there won't be any substantial debates. The debates that they will have will have silly rules and the questions hand picked by moonbats. Coakleys staff will make sure the venue will keep her in a good light and not expose her to true, spirited debate.

Ms. Coakley will win the seat, no futher discussion is needed.

The only thing we have to worry about is Bagdad Harry distubing her with offers of romance.

Has anybody noticed how our elections mirror the Middle east election debacles?

Why bother to vote?

See, I don't like the stance of "why bother to vote". I will be voting for Brown, I don't think he has a chance, but I still get out there and do my duty. If you don't vote, then you shouldn't complain. I think if as many people who couldn't stand Kennedy voted against him he would have been out years ago, instead too many people didn't bother to vote and he got in every time. I think if you don't go and cast your vote, you have no right to complain about the outcome.

" ....people couldn't stand Kennedy"
He won by big majorities most of the 48 YEARS he was in!

You need to examine who the odd balls are here.
While you were ranting, never giving your bigoted specifics ( gays,liberals, blacks,hispanics, immigrants, feminists, hippies), all your wives we saying: " Yes,dear." and voting for Ted.

Pretty presumptious there, there were many who disliked Kennedy. Pathetic calling them bigots because of that.
I guess you didn't get the point. If more people in this state had actually voted, he wouldn't have won by a landslide. Instead they didn't bother and he was elected time and again and they complained about it anyway.

I bet you think all who didn't vote for Obama are racists too.

The way I see it is if you don't vote, DON'T COMPLAIN. Next time you hear someone whining about how communist Coakley is in her new senate seat and your dying to chime in with your 2 cents, if you didn't vote, keep your mouth shut because it's YOUR fault.

Tell me EXACTLY what you disliked about Ted Kennedy ( besides Chappaquidick which we already know) rather than beating around the bush as usual.

I'm mean that respectfully, so kindly answer. thank you.

Agree 100%. Those who don't take the time to go out and vote have no right to complain. Be careful sick, before you know it, "they" will be calling you names and demanding some kind of proof that there are people who couldn't stand Teddy, or will want your reasoning of why you didn't like him...

If everyone with the attitude of "why bother to vote" actualy DID, maybe we could get some of these turds out of office. More registered voters stay home from the polls that actualy cast a ballot! If everyone got the heck off their duffs and VOTED there WILL be changees made!

I knew Ted as a young man and he was not like he was in later years. I always gave to his campaigns and he always remembered his friends back in the early days. But in later years he became alienated and drifted from the real democratic party. The party now is full of radicals, I would not really call it the democrat party, more along the lines of special interest extremist philosophy party or something like that, but definitely not democratic party, that is an an INSULT.If the Kennedy boys knew that their brother turned into a commie they would have beat him to a pulp. Ted forgot what the important things were. Faith in God, real charitable giving, and his stances on abortion and other moral questions like gay marriage were disturbing to his old supporters, especially since he grew up a good Catholic boy. You ask why people disliked Ted?

My favorite Coakley commercial was the one where she say's she will fight the special interests, sponsored by the SIEU.
Only an idiot would fall for that.

When all is said and done, this is Massachusetts. Brown is clearly the better candidate. However, Massachusetts voters will not blaspheme their Gods by voting for anything other than a Democrat. So, by virtue of running on the Democrat Ticket, Coakley is a shoe in for seat. So, I will go out and vote and I will vote for Brown. That way when Coakley gets in the Kool-Aid Line with the rest of the sheep in DC, I can at least say that I had nothing to do with her being elected. I think that the Democrats in Congress have done enough damage sine they took the majority in 2007. You know, the year that the economy started to tank.

I disliked his stance on:

Abortion
Immigration
Gun Control
Hate Crime Laws
Military Funding
Gay Marriage
Taxes
Death Penalty

I could go on and on, but basically I disagree with everything he stands for.

Why do republicans even bother in this state? They need a smack from the clue stick, this is Liberal central, and always will be. With so many other places you can choose from (Alaska, Alabama, Arkansas) why live in misery in a state that will always be at odds with your twisted, selfish, delusional and uptight beliefs? I don't get it.

You didn't mention his most racist position of all; Affirmative Action. You know, the law that makes employers hire incompetent people because of the color of their skin.

I get it. I've lived here all my 61 years. Worked and paid taxes every year since I was 14. Raised a family of 6, put all my kids through college. Never took a dime in welfare even when my income was below the poverty level. I loved my years in the Marines and Love my church that honors life. If you think that's twisted, selfish, delusional and uptight then I have a true battle to defeat you and your kind in politics. Merry Christmas, Huh!!
