10. Blue in the Bluest state
I'm a longtime MA resident. I live in a very rural part of the state. I intend to vote for Coakley. All my relatives are voting for Coakley. Brown is feeding off populist rage here about the economy and the HCR debacle. Like the rest of the country, things are going from bad to worse. If I hadn't witnessed Romney's election here years ago I would have more confidence in Coakley's chances for an easy victory. There are pockets of strong Republican support in this state. Right wing hate radio controls the airways here as well with very few exceptions. That situation really irritates me. My phone is being bombarded with robocalls from Brown. Last night I even got a robocall from Curt Schilling on Brown's behalf. Now I will be forever grateful to Curt for helping the Red Sox end their 86 year curse, but I cannot stand the guy's political views. Brown was an obscure pol in this state. The more I learn about the guy the more I despise his political positions. And info is coming out about what kind of person he is and it's not flattering. I will do my part Tuesday. I wish I could give you a better feeling about this situation. Unfortunately even in MA we have many Republicans, tea-baggers, haters, etc. I am eagerly awaiting Obama's speech at Northeastern University at 3:00 PM today. He had better hit a home run on Coakley's behalf today. He needs to use all his skills to explain the consequences to his agenda that would result from a Coakley defeat. Hoping for the best from the wilderness of western MA.
