Sad: Desperate Dems trying to Palinize Massachusetts race

posted at 5:06 pm on January 12, 2010 by Allahpundit

Does the “Do it for Teddy!” battle cry ring so hollow even in Boston that they’re forced to resort to … this?

Early Monday afternoon, [DNC spinner Hari] Sevugan sent out an email to reporters featuring a link to a story on the lefty website TPM. The headline: “Is Sarah Palin Avoiding Mass Senate Race?” The story quoted a Democratic strategist saying that “it’s interesting” that Palin is “nowhere to be found in this race.” TPM conceded that GOP sources say there has been “no talk” about Palin visiting Massachusetts. But that didn’t stop Sevugan, who is quoted declaring that Palin’s supporters “are anxious for her to weigh in.” At the top of his email to journalists, Sevugan wrote, “Come on, Sarah, why are you being so shy?”…

Finally, when a Brown spokesman, while not specifically mentioning Palin, said that “Scott is not looking for a lot of outside help” and that the race would not be determined by outsiders, Sevugan sent out yet another email to reporters, this one headlined “Weaselly.” Sevugan directed journalists to his response to the “blatant dodge by the Scott Brown campaign on the issue of whether he is seeking and/or if he would accept an endorsement from Sarah Palin.” Sevugan quoted himself challenging Brown: “That’s a weaselly answer. And the people of Massachusetts deserve more than weaselly answers from their next senator…It’s a yes or no question, Scott Brown — Will you accept Sarah Palin’s endorsement or won’t you?”

I’m surprised they didn’t toss her in there next to Rush in that “lockstep Republican” attack ad that dropped last night. I haven’t been following the Massachusetts race closely, yesterday’s Brown-apalooza notwithstanding, so let me ask this in all earnestness: Is Coakley really this terrible of a candidate? In a deep blue sea of Massachusetts Democrats, she’s the prize catch? Even with ObamaCare in disfavor, the combo of mawkish Kennedy sentimentality and the small fortune the Dems have burned on her campaign should make this a walkover — and yet here we are, with Waffles declaring the race a dead heat and the DNC practically begging Palin to say something so that they can demagogue Brown with it. In a year marked by some horrible high-profile Democratic campaigns and candidates — Deeds and Corzine, for starters — Coakley truly must be the very worst.

Exit question: Knowing that Brown is pro-choice, you guys aren’t going to start calling him a RINO whom we’d be better off without in six months, are you?

Even though registered Dems outnumber Republicans in MA, over 51% are unaffiliated with a party. They are Independents.

Brown has wisely chosen to campaign as an “independent thinker” in this race, and he is appealing to voters across all partisan lines.

Palin’s political instincts are correct in staying out of this race. Both Brown and she know it.

Brown in no RINO. He understands the MA constituency. From what I can tell, he has the same stance that Fred Thompson has regarding federalism. Some issues are best served at the state level. Brown is correct in appealing the MA voters on the bread and butter issues and opposing federal funding of abortion or late-term abortions.

From the dumb MA ads and emails, it is apparent that Rush and Palin are messing with the Dem heads. The Dem PR spin meisters are doing more to defeat Coakley than not.

The bigger question is why isn’t Obama coming to stump for Coakley?

PrincipledPilgrim on January 12, 2010 at 5:18 PM

Maybe Coakley has seen Obama’s approval rating and decided that he would be toxic to her campaign so asked him to stay away.

farright on January 12, 2010 at 5:45 PM

Coakley won the backroom war to succeed Kennedy. She didn’t need to be a good general election candidate, because the idea of a Republican winning Kennedy’s seat was laughable. It’s not so laughable any more, and they are stuck with a political insider, deal-maker instead of a campaigner.

Buford Gooch on January 12, 2010 at 5:48 PM

Brown’s NARAL MA 2005 rating was 50%. I don’t know how he got this rating if he is on the record repeatedly saying

1) He’s a vote for “parental consent”
2) He’s a vote in favor of a ban on “partial birth abortion”.
3) He’s a vote against federal funding of elective abortion.

If this makes him pro-choice then I need an all expenses paid sponsorship to NARAL summer camp.

From Yahoo, the new progressive talking points:

– that Sarah Palin believed Saddam Hussein to be behind the attacks on 9/11, didn’t understand why North and South Korea were separate (the Korean War) and that she could not properly pronounce Joe Biden’s name. The book contends that Palin was a mentally unstable person prone to wild mood swings, describing her being hopelessly lost in a “catatonic stupor” at one point during the campaign.

Depends. Is he going to make a habit of giving the press Republican bashing quotes?
Besides, this is a guy who is actually “pro-choice”. Which is to say, he favored a law that gave people teh right not to have to give abortions.
So no, I’m not going to bash him as a RINO if he keeps on acting the way he’s acted in the past.

Now, would I call someone from Utah with his positions a RINO? Probably. But that’s because you can be a lot more conservative, and still get elected in Utah.

Greg Q on January 12, 2010 at 6:00 PM

Pro choice can mean different things, can’t it? He is pro parental notification of a minor wanting an abortion. His pro choice stance could mean also, that he feels it’s a womans choice when she’s raped, and a pregnancy follows, or in cases of incest as well. But does it necessarily mean he’s pro choice for any woman to just go out, and abort their baby when it’s inconvenient to them?

I don’t need specifics, I like the man, and if I lived in Mass, I’d vote for him. I was cheering at his comments over the senate seat. The man gets it. It’s not Teddys. It’s not the Dems. It’s the peoples. That’s good enough for me.

It’s sad that you don’t get the Tea Party movement. This is not about litmus test on issues, its about fidelity to this country and to do what you said you would do if elected to office. It’s about sticking to your principles and meeting the basic requirement to be a republican– vote for limited government. Not new entitlements, not bailouts, and not increase welfare in the form of importing poor people (amnesty) into the country. This is what the Tea Party movement is all about, authenticity. Scott Brown is more than welcomed in the party so long as he stays true to his campaign planks. IF he doesn’t, then we don’t want him in our party and if the party doesn’t want us, then we’ll look to another political party.

Chris_Balsz on January 12, 2010 at 6:22 PM

Frankly I could care less about Scott Brown’s pro choice. He can’t do a damn thing about overturning Roe vs Wade. As he said it is the law. I have lived in Massachusetts akk if my life except for my WW11 service. I have seen Senator’s Lodge and Brooks elected. Also Governors Sargent, Weld Callucci and Romney. They were all elected because they were centrists, strong on the fiscal issues and the preservation of our freedom, and social on other issues. Believe me when I say that Scott fits this mold perfectly, and will win on Jan 19. Now I very seldom comment on these sites, preferring to enjoy reading all comments, lucid or assinine. I just want to express my sadness that none of the candidates talked about protecting our children. A fer years back Margaret Clapprood a Lt. Governor candidate talked about a bill of rights for children. This would not be a states law but a federal one. I want mandatory sentences that could not be overturned by judges, those mandatory laws to be imposed based on the severity of the criminal offense. Children must be protected. Martha Coakley let a baby molester go free because he had the right connections. This is apprehensible, and simply reflects the liberal mindset that believes trying our enemies in federal rather than military courts is acceptable. I have donated twice to Scott and God bless him.

Not to start this argument, but pro-lifers are no more asking the government to get into your lives anymore than they do when they ask that the government not allow you to harm children who are outside the womb. Either you accept that the fetus deserves protection or you don’t, but that’s the discussion here, not government intrusion into “family planning”.

Scott Brown style “pro-choice,” while lamentable that it is not a complete pro-life articulation, is entirely different from Martha Coakley style full bore Pocket Planned Parenthood hack partial birth abortion “pro-choice.”

Abortion is the only choice Martha supports for women.

I don’t mean a Kennedy/Biden/Pelosi version of cafeteria catholicism.

Would I vote for him as a replacement for Kay Bailout? No, because Mr. Williams is in the race. OTOH Senator Brown (R) MA will be toasted when he single handedly ends ObowMaoCare.

I get that part. But then again, I’m not running for sainthood. and I mostly care about me and mine. One of the things I have come to believe about this issue is that the majority of people who are in favor of limitless access to abortion are Democrats. Most of the ones that are strictly anti-abortion are Repbilicans, or at least conservitives. When I look at creatures like Michael Moore, Nancy Pelosi, Algore, Hillary, etc., I have a hard time feeling like it is smart to want them to reproduce. If lefties abort thier spawn and righties don’t, we will have a self correcting situation in a few generations.

He is a RINO AllahPundit and that was acknowledged from the beginning. But he’s MA’s RINO with a potential to clean the D & Kennedy logo off that Senate sit and put a wrench in Health Care Reform, I still sit back and snicker with pleasure watching Liberals pee their pants. I don’t want them running things though. If he starts pulling an Arlen, Olympia, John, Lynsey, or Susan deal, I’ll do everything in my power to kick him to the curb. You can count on that.

That’s vanilla frosting on a turd. Doesn’t disguise very well. The truth is he acts like a horse’s ass because he is one.

Sevugan sent out yet another email to reporters, this one headlined “Weaselly.” Sevugan directed journalists to his response to the “blatant dodge by the Scott Brown campaign on the issue of whether he is seeking and/or if he would accept an endorsement from Sarah Palin.” Sevugan quoted himself challenging Brown: “That’s a weaselly answer. And the people of Massachusetts deserve more than weaselly answers from their next senator

Brown should have responded…

“While I’d like to thank the Democratic National Committee, especially Hari Sevugan, for their early recognition of me as Massachusetts next senator, I’d like to remind them that the people of Massachusetts have not yet voted. So while I appreciate their heartfelt endorsement of my candidacy, I will wait until the election results are final. Thank you for your support.”

Are you readers here at hotair smart enough to figure out that the self-admitted pro-choice Scott Brown is better for us than Martha Coakley as a senator from Mass., or are you going to change your minds in 6 months when he votes pro-choice?

Call me crazy, but yeah, I think the great majority are smart enough to figure that out. If there’s any doubt about that that I shouldn’t waste my time on this site.

Pro-life would be better. And next Senate election out there, don’t think it won’t come up.
