If You Care
Update: 69% in, Brown 53, Coakley 46. I think that's it. She can make up a few points from here, but not 7.
Boston.com has an election returns page. Or CNN is updating this post with results.
On a humorous note, this has got to be the worst headline ever - Democrats seek Plan B on health reform.
Plan B is an emergency high dose of hormones similar to the pill designed to prevent a fertilized egg from implanting.
So is the headline implying that Democrats are seeking a way to discreetly prevent the health care reform bill from entering the world as law?
Maybe CNN used this lead because of Coakley's recent comments implying that orthodox Catholics shouldn't be allowed to work in an emergency room. This caused something of a furor in a state in which many hospitals are run by the Catholic church. See Ann Althouse's post which covers the whole thing, except for one important fact: Plan B is sold over the counter. You don't need a doctor to get it. So I can't imagine what Coakley is after aside from gratuitous Catholic bashing!
The battle to stop Obamacare just got some reinforcment.
Tom - Do you by chance recall Gerald Ford claiming in a debate with Jimmy Carter that there was no Soviet domination of Eastern Europe?
Our politicians are often pretty good comics, and so are our journalists. And these are the people condescending to the plumbers, electricians, farmers and truck drivers?
It must be good weed.
