Here in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, the choices are clear.
Our current governor has been a horrible disaster, making the economic downturn here worse and longer laster than it needed to be.
So I’m voting for Charlie Baker.
I’m also voting for Jim McKenna for Attorney General. He was my professor for my graduate Business Law & Ethics course. He is very qualified for the job, unlike the current AG, who has turned a blind eye to widespread corruption in the state government.
Karyn Polito gets my vote for Treasurer. Karyn has been one of the very small “Loyal Opposition” in the state legislature, and knows where the problems are in the state budget.
I’m voting for Mary Z. Connaughton for state Auditor. She is a CPA who has experience in the private sector as an auditor. She will provide the transparency that the state budget really, really needs.
For the third congressional district, Marty Lamb gets my vote.
“This is not an election on November 2. This is a restraining order. Power has been trapped, abused and exploited by Democrats. Go to the ballot box and put an end to this abusive relationship. And let’s not hear any nonsense about letting the Democrats off if they promise to get counseling.”
On Primary Day, Jim McKenna pulled off one of the most surprising feats in Massachusetts politics as he received well over the 10,000 write-in votes needed to win the GOP nomination for attorney general. He’s now challenging Martha Coakley, the Democratic incumbent. … McKenna is a serious candidate. A former prosecutor, he says he’ll focus mostly on three issues: public trust in the Attorney General’s Office, illegal immigration and public corruption.
On a personal note, Jim McKenna was the professor of my graduate Business Law and Ethics course. He is very smart, very knowledgeable of the law, and, unlike many “professional politicians”, quite ethical.
Jim McKenna has more than my vote in November, he has my active support.

At least here in the People’s Commonwealth of Massachusetts.
All the interesting races are in the Republican primaries. The democrats are typical Massachusetts democrats, part of the party system, and like my Congressman, Rep. McGovern, part of the caucus of the Socialist Party of America. For those lefties that read this blog, I wish I was making that one up.
The big race is the five way one for the right to run against Rep. McGovern, who, like the President and his cabinet, has never held a private sector job in his life.
The other contested race is for Auditor.
I like both candidates, Kamal Jain and Mary Z. Connaughton. Kamal has the advantage for supporting ballot initiative 3, which would roll the state income tax from 6.5% to 3%.
Kamal (and Marty) get that the problem isn’t that government isn’t taking enough of the tax payer’s money, the problem is that government is spending too much of the tax payer’s money.
Arlen Specter, the Senator who switched from being a “liberal” Republican to a “Right of Center” democrat got his reward from the democrat voters in Pennsylvania. Just as he deserved, he lost the democrat primary.
Republican Scott Brown has defeated democrat Martha Coakley in the special election to replace the late Senator Ted Kennedy.
This is despite having our Dear Leader, Barack Hussein Obama, and former President Clinton come here to the People’s Republic to stump for Coakley.
So, this is the third democrat candidate that BHO has visited and campaigned for. All three have lost. He’s four for four if you count his trip to Copenhagen and not getting the Olympics for Chicago.
The democrats will try to deny this simple fact, but the truth is that this election is very much a vote against Obama’s failed administration and policies. He can try to deal with this reality or continue to attempt to drive the country down the wrong path.
It’s special election day here in the People’s Commonwealth. Republican Scott Brown is running against democrat Martha Coakley. The AG who the state police union won’t support (they are backing Brown).
Let’s review what is happing out there. First off, we have Coakley supporters not only denying a citizen his First Amendment Rights, but are likely committing assault also.
In Lawrence, MA blank absentee ballots are being handed out. It’s the day of the election. Why are blank absentee ballots being handed out areas that trend highly democrat? Personally, I smell the stench of ACORN here.
Ya, that ACORN. The one our Dear Leader, Barack Hussein Obama gave “get out the vote” classes to back when he was a “community organizer” and is currently under investigation for massive vote fraud in at least a half dozen states.
Well, as a wintry election day dawns in Massachusetts, I’ll believe it when I see it. If all but one of those polls are right, Scott Brown now has a lead well beyond the margin of error. But, as that Boston Globe ‘Dead Heat!’ headline suggests, it’s not necessarily beyond the margin of Acorn, the margin of lawyer, and the margin of Franken-style recounts. On the other hand, if you’re minded to (as MSNBC’s electokleptomaniac Ed Schultz recommends) steal the vote, you don’t really want to have to steal it big, on a Mugabe-esque scale.

Don’t forget to vote on Tuesday the 19th additionally please visit the Scott Brown web site at: http://www.brownforussenate.com/ and perhaps lend a helping hand.
