Today is Happy Sanctity of Life Day, Martin Luther King Jr Day, and an Election Day in Massachusettes.
The election is the Senate seat vacated upon Ted Kennedy’s death and the election is tomorrow, but please pray a victory for the citizenry of Massachusetts and America.
Just a few snippets off the top of my head, concerning this much anticipated and heavily watched campaign and vote.
Obama stumps for Coakley (the Dem), “So look, forget the ads, everybody can’t can slick ads. Forget the truck. Everyone can buy a truck.”
No comment from Coakley that I could find…which is probably good since she seems to suffer from the Biden foot in mouth disease.
Brown’s comment: “Mr. President, unfortunately in this economy, not everybody can buy a truck,” Brown said in a statement. “My goal is to change that by cutting spending, lowering taxes and letting people keep more of their own money.”
Another comment from Mr. Brown that is practically notorious at this point, but worth repeating over and over and over. “With all due respect, it’s not the Kennedys’ seat and it’s not the democrat’s seat; it’s the people’s seat.” THE PEOPLE’S SEAT — don’t you love that!? I LOVE(1000) that! Did you hear that Congress?! It’s THE PEOPLE’S SEAT and WE want it back!
He is easy on the eyes, isn’t he? And yes, I’ve heard the stories about modeling and posing for Playgirl – so he’s far from perfect. Hold your politicians accountable for what they do, have done, and will do, by all means, but be careful throwing that stone.
Happy MLK Day, fwiw. I say *for what it’s worth* because MLK Day is a joke. His dream, and I believe I’ve read the words to his famous speech correctly, was for equal opportunity. And I believe they were the right words for the times. Americans were not holding up the standard set forth by our Founding Fathers and he called them on it. But the meaning of his words and the meaning of “equal” are so mangled and obfuscated that it doesn’t mean equality or opportunity in so many Americans’ mindset. It means entitlement, chronic & generational welfare, concessions, and special treatment. I’m not undermining Dr. King’s work nor do I intend to magnify him. So, Happy MLK Day, fwiw. If you’re employed, I honestly hope you are enjoying a leisurely day off.
Happy Sanctity of Human Life Day! Now there is something worth celebrating!
