1. But she didn't know who Curt Schilling was.
Don't you realize what that means?

23. baseball isn't even a real sport anymore
it's just like wrestling totally fake and filled with pathetic panzy half-men who need to pump themselves full of drugs just to handle playing a fucking game.

so I don't blame anyone who doesn't give a shit about baseball any more, baseball is a joke.

to many people in Boston. You are more than free to feel the way you do, but it was still a mistake, imo, to say what she did.

32. I know who he is
I was living in Boston in 2004 when they won the World Series. His comments as he ran for Bush in the 2004 elections made me think he was actually part of the Evil Empire not the Red Sox team.

That said, I'm glad he was so instrumental, bloody sock and all, in winning the WS for Boston.

21. No, your status as a Leprechaun makes you unelectable.
Hoarding gold and all that makes people uneasy.

4. Well, such people never voted for Kennedy....
...they voted for a brand name - just as most would opt for Coke or Pepsi over some generic cola. Politics is on the same frivolous level to many people. They saw the glossy, shiny, cut-price Romney stylings of Brown and swooned all over him.

39. So, why not just sit out the election? Why not vote for the Independent?
Voting for the Repuke who is going to do absolutely NOTHING does not solve the problem!!

17. The only person who should be ashamed is the person who
castigates a voter for voting for whomever he or she wishes to vote. Whether you agree with their votes or not, it is not the voter who owes the politician, even if that politician is Ted Kennedy.

19. So. . .
Did the people who voted for John Kennedy back in the '40s (or early '50s) instead of Henry Cabot Lodge, Jr, spit on Lodge Sr's grave?

Should John Kennedy have done what HCL/Jr would have done, since it was the "Lodges' seat" for so many years? Did voters diss the HCL/Sr by not voting for his scion?

Since when are Senate seats sinecures, to be passed in one's will like a feudal lordship?

Me thinks Sir Theodore would be most cross. While I have no doubt that he loved power and all its accoutrements, and probably viewed his seat territorially as a sinecure, nonetheless he was far too clever a politician to utter such an opinion in the presence of anybody who wasn't utterly paid for or of such small reputation as to be utterly ignored.

(Seriously, when did this become Feudal Underground? And, no, my previous paragraph contained nary an accolade, but reveals that I thought Ted Kennedy jaded while still clever enough to not forget that private sin and public virtue are utterly compatible.)

22. It is the Party that is spitting on its People -- there's only so much that can be taken
Edited on Tue Jan-19-10 08:25 PM by quantass
I certainly would never vote republican but seeing as how the party has no respect for its voters i see no motivation to support this party and am more than happy to stay home. What to do when you have two parties that are just as disgraceful? Where are the REAL leaders who want to make REAL progressive change? Until then...good night, and good luck.

28. Ted Kennedy is partially at fault for tonight's results
He should have stepped down from his Senate seat once he became too ill to serve. If this election had happened months ago, the results likely have been different.

But failure to acknowledge it may cause us to repeat the same mistakes in the future.

38. No. He should have stepped down when he was no longer able to discharge his duties as a Senator
The people of Massachusetts deserved to have two Senators representing them, not one. What was the purpose of him retaining the title of Senator when he was no longer showing up in DC to vote?

42. Instead of the knee jerk reaction...think about what he said...
and I wondered the same thing...as soon as it was obvious that Ted was terminal...he could have retired, and had his seat filled, a long time ago, that isn't putting down Ted, at all, because I understand the emotions involved...but it IS just possible, that a fellow Dem...could/would have gotten it, under those circumstances, and again because of emotions having to do with Ted..but I will admit, that it's a bit redundant to talk about it now....hindsight always being 20/20 and all...I'd suggest, however, that Scott Brown not get too used to the seat...or too confident....I think Coakley ran a terrible campaign...and past history tells us...it's never time to rest on our laurels, and expect something to be handed to us, just because...wb
