    Just a quick reminder to all my fellow cynics when it comes to politicians: the political system as it is now construed makes it virtually impossible for anyone with integrity to operate based only upon what is right. The perpetual spotlight is ready to catch any politician who shows their humanity by making a mistake. Think Harry Truman could get elected today, given his salty language? Or JFK with his romantic life? Not a chance. Why doesn’t Martha display her wonderful qualities? In the immortal words of the great philosopher (and former Celtic center)William Walton, minor surgery is surgery on someone besides yourself. If you were running for Teddy Kennedy’s seat, how careful would you have to be in that spotlight? Give Martha a break. Beneath the exterior that politics demands, she’s a good person and will make a good Senator.

    Gerald Amirault would have been a good quote, don’t you think? “Good person” indeed.

    All this talk about the primary. None about the actual general election. And no polls from any major groups either. Anyone wonder why? Coakly is not going to be our Senator. Scott Brown is. We’re sick of Deval. We’re sick of Barrack. And we’re going to show the whole country.

    If you could Spell Coakley or Barack, maybe someone would take you seriously.

    Scott Brown posed his hairy body in Cosmopolitan magazine to make money to pay for college. Some like me, paid for it the old fashioned way – we won scholarships and worked part time jobs!

    We need serious brains and guts in the senate – not just another pretty face. Maybe he could run as vice-president with Sarah Palin in 2012! Vanity loves company.

    If Mike Capuano had won the primary we won’t be in the mess we’re in. He would have destroyed Scott Brown. I supported Mike and switched to Martha after the primary. I’m terribly disappointed and can’t vote for her. Her effort and demeanor have turned me off. If she wins, she’ll be there forever. If Brown wins the Democrats can take back the seat in three years.

    The Amirault case marks Coakley irremediably as a legal and intellectual coward. Her appeal is strong only among those who ignore her moral cowardice, as most of her apologists are busy doing.

    “Coakley held many press conferences to tout the cases that she, as attorney general, had won.”
