Bloviating Zeppelin: Reflections Upon The Massachusetts Senate Race

Bloviating Zeppelin

(in-ep-toc'-ra-cy) - a system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed, are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers.

Reflections Upon The Massachusetts Senate Race

1. Massachusetts:

In recent years, the two Massachusetts senators have been Edward Kennedy and John Kerry.

Massachusetts, historically, has had Demorats outnumber Republicans, within roughly the last 100 years, 3.5 - to - 1. Massachusetts is, frankly, the bluest of Blue States. It's why they're called Massholes.

Teddy Kennedy had a virtual lock on his senate seat for almost fifty years, starting November 7th of 1962. Kerry has been in place since January 2nd of 1985.

Massachusetts politicians literally bleed blue -- just like some vampires and all spiders, scorpions and horseshoe crabs. I think perhaps the Borg as well.

I suspect they're the source for the phrase "blue bloods" or sangre azuls -- the nobility or "of noble descent."

And that would certainly describe the arrogance, entitlement and inefficacy of the Demorats in this country.

That said, I'd care to post some observations I've noted within the past two years in terms of American politics.

2. 2008:

That was a landmark year for the Demorats. They literally "cleared the board" with national elections including our first black president. Demorats chirruped: "We have a mandate, we have a mandate!"

And I submit this:

3. Not A Mandate:

Demorats completely misinterpreted their so-called "mandate." The "mandate" was this: the nation was tired of President Bush. Period.

Couple this with those former Republicans or Conservatives who either refused to show up on election day or refused to vote for McCain -- and Mr Obama was the result. Thank you, detailed purists.

4. Boding Poorly For Mr Obama:

Precisely one year after his inauguration, Mr Obama faces a relativistic shock. Even IF Scott Brown fails to acquire Kennedy's senate seat and it is awarded to Martha Coakley, the Demorats will find themselves staggered. Despite there still being 150,000 dead persons on the Massachutsetts voting rolls, of which to take advantage. They made any number of arrogant and elitist assumptions. Even they could not see the true Writing On The Wall.

5. What IS The Writing On The Wall?

That is this: Demorat Nancy Pelosi actually plays to a specific minority of her own minor San Francisco district. She assumes she speaks for the millions when, in fact, she speaks for the loudest, the most strident, the most colorful, the most egregious, the most obstreperous, the most outrageous. She speaks for the Deluded, including herself.

6. Is The GOP Any Better?

In a word: NO. They don't understand the fundamentals and the machinations that have occurred within the past year. They think it involves mindset and philosophy. It doesn't.

7. If Not Philosophy, Then WHAT?

Both sides of the aisle fail to understand that the prevailing mood in the country is disenchantment with politicians in general. People want to see a stop to spending. People want to see a stop to entitlements. People want to see Politicians HURT. People want to see Politicians Hurt LIKE THEY ARE. And, instead, what do they see?

8. Politicians UNaffected.

So I say: is this necessarily, if he wins, a vote FOR Scott Brown? I posit: NO. I say it's a vote Against Incumbents.

9. Lessons For Republicans?

You have an opportunity here. If you're sufficiently intelligent and organized to take advantage. I believe that you are NOT. The Demorats have blown it. You are about to.

10. Immediate Future Votes?

The electorate is going to go this way: voting out ALL INCUMBENTS.

It's, at this point, as simple as that.

Wednesday evening will tell.

69% of precincts in, Brown leads 53%-46%.

Coakley has just conceded, LOL!

Your post could not have been more effective if it had been presented in the dreaded Trekker font.

It's a shame if this kills healthcare, but I think Obama's sitting on the sidelines over the summer is where it really died. I think what really pissed of the avg. Mass. voter is that the progressive parts of the bill (public option) were killed and that horse trading (espsecially the concessions to Liberman and Ben Nelson) were the straw that broke the camel's back. I really thought that letting people 55 and up buy into Medicare was a great idea as a compromise for a public option, but I was not happy at all with the long phase in (2013) and all the other gifts to the big insurance companies. So even though I'm on the other side of this issue I didn't really like the final product either. This guy will probably be a one term senator.
I agree that Democrats did NOT get a mandate. People did want them to have a bullet prooof majority, but for things like staopping the wars and fixing the economy, not fixing health insurance (which I think people still wanted to do something with it, but LATER, after the first two things were taken care of).
I don't think the Republicans should get too excited, most people out there still think they are idiots.
