We’ve heard a lot about how Wendy Davis was going to turn Texas blue. There’s even an organization called Texas Blue. She held a little filibuster in pink sneakers defending late term abortion and instantly became the darling of the “abort everybody” fan club.
She raised tons of money for her campaign for governor, promising to protect the right of every woman to murder their unborn children. Unfortunately for them, Abortion Barbie is such a bad candidate that it looks like Republicans will pull off a clean sweep of all statewide offices, and Gregg Abbot, the Republican nominee for governor, will enjoy a double digit win on Tuesday.
The really amazing thing happening this election cycle is not in Texas. Anybody with half a brain – which leaves out Democrats – knew Abortion Barbie was going to get her sneakers blown off. First of all, she couldn’t raise any money in Texas! All of campaign funds came from the pink coasts and since Texas has a voter ID law, it’s difficult for the big contributors to send their illegal alien household help to Texas to vote.
Here’s the real shocker though. The big upset isn’t going to be in Texas, it’s looking like it will be in Massachusetts. As a long-ago-former-Boston-resident your Curmudgeon is just giggly.
Remember Martha Coakley? She was the “heir apparent” to Ted Kennedy’s Senatorial seat when Satan finally took Teddy home. (On that note, we’re sure Teddy is longing for a drink of the cool water he let Mary Jo drown in.) Martha was such a lousy Senatorial candidate Scott Brown beat her. She actually went on vacation in the middle of the campaign, and our favorite line from that loss was when she was talking about “the Kennedy seat in the Senate” during a debate and Scott corrected her, “It’s not the Kennedy’s seat, that seat belongs to the people of Massachusetts.”
Anyway, she’s at it again and she didn’t learn a thing. You won’t believe this video.
Coakley: “Well, I — is Charlie pledging? Are you signing that, in blood, Charlie? You’re not going to raise fees?”
Baker: “I’m not going to raise fees.”
Coakley: “Then I’m not going to raise fees either.”
Martha Coakley is an idiot. The Curmudgeon could get elected Governor of Massachusetts if he ran as a Democrat and just lied about what he was going to do. Any electorate stupid enough to reelect Ted Kennedy is stupid enough to not figure out The Curmudgeon makes the Tea Parties look like pinkos. The reason we didn’t run was the weather. It’s not worth leaving the sunny climes of Phoenix for Boston just to drive a bunch of liberal idiots crazy. And anyway, it’s more fun watching Martha.
Latest polls have Charlie Baker up seven. Just to be clear, a Charlie Baker win in the governor’s race won’t make Massachusetts a reliably Republican state, it just means that an electorate stupid enough to reelect Ted Kennedy is smart enough to chase off Martha Coakley. Twice.
