Kennedy Doesn't Even Know Martha Coakley's Name
Marcia. Marcia. Marcia.
Rep. Patrick Kennedy went to Boston today to help Martha Coakley in her quest to fill Teddy Kennedy’s Senate Seat. Patrick Kennedy is Teddy Kennedy’s son.
He didn’t even know her name.
Hotline On Call reported, via Drudge:
Rep. Patrick Kennedy (D-RI), speaking with a gaggle of reporters after the event, said that while state Sen. Scott Brown (R) offers voters a quick fix, in reality, the problems created by “George Bush and his cronies” are not so easily solved.
“If you think there’s magic out there and things can be turned around overnight, then you would vote for someone who could promise you that, like Scott Brown,” Kennedy said. “If you don’t, if you know that it takes eight years for George Bush and his cronies to put our country into this hole … then you know we have a lot of digging to do, but some work needs to be done and this president’s in the process of doing it and we need to get Marcia Coakley to help him to do that.”
(Curiously, Kennedy mentioned Coakley repeatedly during his remarks to reporters, each time referring to her as “Marcia,” not “Martha.”)
Is it just me, or is a Bush-bash more effective if you know who the h*ll you’re campaigning for?
My mother was one of the teeming masses who attended the Scott Brown rally at Mechanics Hall (http://www.mechanicshall.org/) in Worcester, Massachusetts, this afternoon. Thought you might like the sign she brought (attached).
Not only did supporters fill the Great Hall (shown), but they also filled the overflow room downstairs and the overflow-overflow room at the Crowne Plaza hotel down the street.
