God damn us democrats in Massachusetts for not being prepared for the special election!
Advertisements [?]
God damn it that we didn't find a better candidate than Martha Coakley. God damn it that the dems thought Martha deserved the senate seat because she is a woman instead of who could win against a playgirl bunny.

We had months and months to find a qualified candidate but noooooo, we all waited around hoping a Kennedy would jump in and save us. We all sat around mourning, knowing no one could fill Ted's seat. So what happens MA votes in an absolute INSULT to everything Ted worked for.

I can't look at people in my state without wondering if they voted for Brown. I know the majority of my town voted him in. I can't believe we'd shoot ourselves in the foot voting for a guy who will work against everything we need.

I am just so disgusted. Every time I see that bastard on TV, my blood pressure rises. And to make matters worse, our governor, Patrick Duval has approval ratings that are in the toilet.

How can all this be happening?
