Tora! Tora! Tora! in Massachusetts.

In the final scene of the 1970 movie Tora! Tora! Tora! about the Japanese sneak attack on Pearl Harbor, Admiral Yamamoto, who planned and carried out the attack, says to a subordinate, "I fear all we have done is awaken a sleeping giant and fill him with a terrible resolve."

We all know how the war with Japan ended four years after their attack. We vaporized two of their cities with atomic bombs. So much for American's terrible resolve!

Today, a year after the Democrats took control of America, they have revealed the true nature of their drunken libido by unleashing their intoxicated feeling of power. They have enjoyed their moment of glory and now the payback begins.

I cannot help but think many followers of this left-wing movement are now looking at the American voters in the same light as Admiral Yamamoto looked at America's resolve. The massive TEA Party movement and the Take Back America theme that brought over 2-million protesters to Washington, D.C. on September 12th last year have energized an enormous anti-Democrat force that has seen two Democrat governors lose their bid for re-election and two Democrat Senators and half a dozen Democrat Congressman decide not to run for re-election in November. Now we have the special election on Tuesday, January 19th for the U.S. Senate seat in Massachusetts to fill the vacancy after Ted Kennedy died of brain cancer. In a state that numbers Democrats 3 to 1 over Republicans, the Democrat candidate is trailing behind in the polls. In a state so liberal the voters, who couldn't hold Ted Kennedy accountable for his cowardly actions at Chappaquidick, are now dumping Democrat Coakley in favor of Republican Scott Brown. So popular has this race become that Republican Scott Brown has been getting a million dollars a day in campaign contributions from everywhere.

So desperate are the Democrats to shore up Martha Coakley's failing campaign they have decided to bring in the big guns to make one final push. Their great leader Obama, who will undoubtedly remind everyone of his own importance as he usually does wherever he speaks and Bill Clinton, who will take time off from his duties as special envoy to the U.N. that is supposed to be helping the earthquake victims in Haiti, will both make campaign appearances. I suspect their attempts will backfire. The voters aren't listening to this bull-shit anymore.

  1. Coakley vs. Brown, the Very Special Election

    Most readers are well aware that Tuesday’s Coakley-Brown contest in Massachusetts is The Big One, Elizabeth–as Fred Sanford used to say, and it actually is the biggest horse race since Secretariat won the Triple Crown in 1973.

    That happens to be one year after the last Republican won a senate seat in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.

    Thirty-seven years is a long time for one political party to have a lock on any state’s seats in the United States Senate but on Tuesday that string just may be broken.

    On a political level, it’s the most important race since the one that ended on November 4th, 2008.

    In 2009, Virginians and New Jerseyians sent duplicate messages to Washington concerning what happened last November. If they didn’t say they made a mistake, they did the next best thing by making it vividly clear that they still favored change they could believe in but the antithesis of the change Obama had promised.

    In essence, after a year of seeing what Obama was plotting and perpetrating, those good citizens of Virginia and New Jersey said, “We want none of it! Not Obama’s incredible deficits that our kids and grandkids will be paying in perpetuity, not the multi-billion dollar bailouts, not the Obamacare scheme to nationalize health care, not the bowing and scraping to kings, emperors, and sheiks by an American president!”

    They had enough after less than a year and on January 19th, the electorate in the Bay State will get their chance to protest, to just say no, to register their opposition to Obamanomics, to Obamacare, to the abomination America has witnessed over the last 12 months simply by pulling the lever or pressing a button for Scott Brown in the special election to determine who assumes “the Kennedy seat” in the United States Senate or who gets to sit in the peoples’ seat in the United States Senate.

    The choice is pretty simple, really. Continue the Massachusetts status quo by sending party hack Martha Coakley to Washington to continue mind-numbing fiscal insanity and divisive politics or send the president and his congress another message of dissent.

    Rarely has there been a time that demanded an infusion of new, revivifying blood into D.C. and to the nation, rarely has there been a better time to quote Howard Beale’s plea in ”Network” that we stick our heads out windows and scream, ”We’re fed up and I’m not going to take this anymore!”

    That may be a tad extreme but the times are extreme.

    Just two months ago, little known Massachusetts Republican State Senator Scott Brown, labeled “a hunk” by Monica Crowley yesterday, had as much chance of toppling the Democrat machine and Ms. Coakley as Ronald Reagan . . .

  2. Coakley vs. Brown: Updates

    What?? Me worry??

    Complacent Martha or is it Marcia: Somehow, it doesn’t seem that Massachusetts A.G. is awfully worried about her Tuesday match-up with State Sen. Scott Brown for “the Kennedy seat” in the United States Senate.

    For one thing, she’s staged a lackluster, non-campaign as if she knew from the start she would end up a loser even though, at the start, she seemed a shoo-in to head to D.C. to be that crucial 60th vote for Obamacare. (That assumes Harry Reid doesn’t pull an end run and goes to the reconciliation ploy needing only 51 Democrats to foist that obamanation on the American people.)

    For another thing, Martha Coakley really seems as if she doesn’t want the job.

    As Brian McGrory writes for Boston.com in an article titled, “Race Is in a Spinout,” despite her claims to have traveled the state meeting tremendous people, “If she did, it was under the cover of darkness, with an assumed name . . . Literally, she all but vanished. She refused to debate on TV unless it was exactly on her terms. She went days without venturing out in public:” http://bit.ly/8qLU4S

    Not exactly the best way to win a seat in the Senate.

    A Kennedy Weighs In: A scion of the Kennedy clan doesn’t seem too worried either, not even concerned enough to get her name straight.

    Speaking to reporters after President Obama tried to rally the troops and dragging out the worn-out Bush card to blame GWB for every problem in the universe, Rep. Patrick Kennedy (D. R.I) repeatedly referred to “Marcia Coakley,” . . .

  3. berlet98: re.", Rep. Patrick Kennedy (D. R.I) repeatedly referred to “Marcia Coakley,”

    I wonder if the entire Kennedy clan has a drinking problem?
