One quick quesion on Coakley that always goes unanswered. Martha has been in the public eye for over a decade. Can anyone point out one single accomplishment? The Coakley campaign wasn't able to answer that question, or they would have run on her record and not the defensive name recognition game they have played.

It is sad to me that someone who has done so little, for such a long time should be seriously considered to replace the hardest working, most accomplished Senator in U.S. history.

Just what the Senate needs, another lawyer! Her election will enable the DEMS to further cater to an integral part of their base, the trial lawyers. You can kiss tort reform good by. ELECTIONS HAVE CONSEQUENCES!

Not even a mention of the Republican candidates.
In an article on A3 in todays eagle they do actually mention that its not just demorats running, however no coverage of the the candidates or their views on the issues.
This paper is so far from legit journalism,I just buy it to laugh.

Uh, Dave, the trial lawyers organizations are plaintiffs' lawyers, you dope. They bring lawsuits on behalf of injured people. Coakley is a law enforcement officer,. Basically, the AG and the trial lawyers are from completely different planets, and are often adverse in court. Try to learn the difference before shooting your mouth off.

Most accomplished? At what, socialist programs, welfare handouts, destroying and/or driving business out of Mass? Truly a record to be proud of!

The Berkshire Eagle doesn't even bother to mention the Republican candidates because they are such a partisan paper, that it's ridiculous. They also know that the Republican candidates do not stand a snowballs chance in you know where of winning, so why bother even mentioning them.

The deliberate partisan agenda of the media in this State has been so effective that most Republicans have been run out of the State. We are left with a public majority that is on automatic pilot to vote Democrat for all elections. The brainwashing has been very effective here in Massachusetts!!!

The Liberal Kook fringe Berkshire Eagle editorial guy writes: "The four Democratic candidates for the Massachusetts U.S. Senate seat held for nearly half a century by a legend knew going in they would come up short in comparisons to Edward Kennedy."
Is he kidding?
Is he serious?
The only way anyone could come up short against someone as small as Ted Kennedy is if the person had driven a spouse to drink, AND been an adulterer, AND directly been the cause of someone's death by drowning, AND sexually abused waitresses.
That's a tall order, even for four Liberals in a Massachusetts Democrat primary.

What?
Can anyone point out one single accomplishment of Martha Coakley?
That's easy!
She's obviously accomplished not having to sleep with either Ted Kennedy or John Forbes Kerry to get where she is today.
Now THAT is an accomplishment!
