Kerry: These dangerous Palinite “teabaggers” certainly are revved up

posted at 5:20 pm on January 18, 2010 by Allahpundit

A more cynical pundit might see this as a hamfisted attempt to manufacture a distraction amid electoral collapse. Good thing I’m not a cynic.

This ought to finish Coakley off with independents. Thanks, Waffles.

“I’m no stranger to hard fought campaigns, but what we’ve seen in the past few days is way over the line and reminiscent of the dangerous atmosphere of Sarah Palin’s 2008 campaign rallies. This is not how democracy works in Massachusetts,” Kerry said this afternoon in a statement.

“Scott Brown needs to speak up and get his out of state tea party supporters under control. In Massachusetts, we fight hard and win elections on the issues and on our differences, not with bullying and threats,” Kerry said.

Brown campaign spokesman Felix Browne said, “People are tired of John Kerry’s partisan politics. His baseless accusations reflect the desperate last gasps of a flailing campaign.”

“Scott Brown is running a positive campaign and has been since the beginning of the race,” Browne said in an emailed statement.

Supposedly Brown’s rallies are “dangerous” because one guy at one rally yelled a tasteless joke about Coakley that referenced her decision not to prosecute a gruesome case of child rape that later earned the rapist two life terms. Evidently Kerry’s more offended by the joke than the genuinely dangerous professional negligence by his pal Martha that inspired it. Three cheers for partisanship.

Oh, as for the “teabagger” crap, see here. Not the first U.S. Senator to try to mainstream that term, and certainly not the last.

Mr.Kerry…..can you explain to my poor teabaggin mind, just how people from a state, who are exerting their Constitutionally given rights to vote, for which ever candidate they choose, is NOT democracy in action? Hmmm?

I suppose in your warped little mind, it’s only democracy, when people vote who YOU tell them to vote for. That my dear, is tyranny. Read a book once in awhile.

Oh, you guys are funny. These Kerry comebacks have provided comic relief.

Scary Kerry has been all wee-wee’d up since he was burned with the Swiftboating. He had the Globe covering his fancy azz for too long.

“We also see how revved up the tea baggers are at the thought of hijacking health care reform and every chance we have at making progress in Washington.” warned Kerry this morning.

Always pay attention to how the Lefties insert that slippery word progress. They have a differing (and dangerous) definition than the rest of rational people do.

Isn’t that just like Kerry, he totally marginilizes the fact that people in Massachusetts might be SICK of KerryObama and his socialist party.

I’m surprised that this tool hasn’t slunk back into the woodwork, creating some distance between himself and the loser. I’m also getting a little teed off when these liberal pos’ keep referring to patriotic Americans with this disgusting term.

This is not how democracy works in Massachusetts,” Kerry said this afternoon in a statement.

That’ll close the gap, Sea Biscuit. ;-0

If the people of Mass. don’t like being told they have to vote for the Machine’s choice to fill Teddy’s seat, then I’m sure they’ll love being told how democracy works in Massachusetts.

You know….I’m often shocked at some of the crap that comes out of Washington, but I remember Obama’s words at one speech. I wished I could remember where, and when he said them, but I can’t. If I find it, I’ll post it. But those words were…..You haven’t seen anything yet!

Those words uttered from his mouth, scared the hell out of me, because I knew what he meant.

capejasmine on January 18, 2010 at 6:51 PM

Old Kerry must have had too many of those famous baked beans. He is spewing warm and heavily sulphuric gas…again.

My final take on this:

Scott Brown needs to speak up and get his out of state tea party supporters under control. In Massachusetts, we fight hard and win elections on the issues and on our differences, not with bullying and threats,” Kerry said.

I actually agree with Kerry. Out-of-staters, get out MA and don’t intervene.

One question ‘though:

BUT OBAMA IS OUT-OF-STATE SUPPORTER OF COAKLEY.

WHY DID KERRY ALLOW THAT BIG BULLY FROM THE WHITE HOUSE TO SPEAK IN COAKLEY’S BEHALF IN FRONT OF KERRY’S OWN PEOPLE?

WHY KERRY, THE COWARD? JUST WHY?

TheAlamos on January 18, 2010 at 6:56 PM

Johnny finally gets to be Senior Senator, and now they want to elect a Republican as his junior? All those years of kissing Teddy’s posterior, shrinking in the awesomeness of the Lion of Chappaquiddick’s reflected light, and now this indignity?

Do you know who John Kerry IS?

Nichevo on January 18, 2010 at 6:56 PM

Does anyone know Brown’s views on the civilian trials of the terrorists and/or closing of Gitmo?

I understand that he believes Abdulmutallab should have been sent to Gitmo so I assume that he wants it kept open.
How about the trials?
We need to get Congress to cut the funding for the trials. And his vote might be critical.

Transcript: Scott Brown Addresses Worcester ‘People’s Rally’
As an attorney, I believe that our Constitution and laws exist to protect this nation – they do not grant rights and privileges to enemies in wartime. In dealing with terrorists, our tax dollars should pay for weapons to stop them, not lawyers to defend them.

This is not how democracy works in Massachusetts,” Kerry said this afternoon in a statement.

Like all leftist statements, flip it to find the truth. An axiom to live by.

Obama: “Let me be clear.”
Truth: “I’m now going to lie.”

O: “No taxes for anybody making under $250k.”
T: “Higher taxes for anybody making anything.”

O: “You can keep your doctor.”
T: “No one will keep anything they had; we’re choosing and rationing for you.”

O: “This will be an open and transparent process and we”ll broadcast on C-Span.”
T: “Closed and secretive. Why on earth would we broadcast backroom deals required to buy votes?”

By the way, Kerry: this is exactly how democracy works. You just can’t stand it.

rrpjr on January 18, 2010 at 7:18 PM

Senator “Doosh-Bag”, you can kiss my teabaggin arse! You are as worthless in Washington, as you are in Massachusetts.

I listened to an interview with Mitt Romney, a bit more than a year ago. The interviewer asked how a Republican Governor could work with Ted, and John?
He responded by saying that he had no issues with Sen. Kennedy, if Mass needed it, it was done. They talked frequently, and access was never an issue. He then said, he never did, nor ever could, contact Kerry.

My point is, while Teddy was a pompous ass, he was a man of his people, Kerry, a man of himself.

Before I get flamed by you good people, don’t get me wrong, there is nothing about Kennedy I find redeeming, Kerry, not so much.

I hope Massachusetts can see it in its heart to replace a do nothing piece of crap, when his term comes to an end.

Send $$$$$$$$ to Brown, oops… gotta drink.

Don’t forget, too, that Sarah Palin has written several pieces about energy that threaten Kerry’s Tax and Crap bill that he has “crafted” with Boxer. He is very afraid of Palin’s knowledge of and influence on energy production.

Don’t live in MA but near neighbor who keeps an eye on the place and wishes it well. Kerry’s idea of Democracy seems along the lines of Beacon Hill’s. When you need cash for any whim at all, raise taxes and fees but…don’t raise them all at once or too much at a time because the folks might notice. I mean doesn’t everyone know that that’s the reason the middle class exists.

Geez that term “teabagger” is such a non-insulting term. It cracks me up that liberals try to use it in a disparaging way.

“Scott Brown needs to speak up and get his out of state tea party supporters under control. In Massachusetts, we fight hard and win elections on the issues and on our differences, not with bullying and threats,” Kerry said.

Oh you mean the real issues, Senator Live-Shot? Like pickup trucks, limos, saluting nazi radio hosts, now-gone financial iconic buildings, lear jets, and scurrilous rape-loving charges? Those issues. Quoting Maximus: “The time for honoring yourself will soon be at an end.”
