Coakley attorney Marc Elias speaking now, claiming spoiled ballots … Elias is Al Franken’s former campaign attorney. Yep.
They are setting the stage. Here comes the long, drawn out contested race from the (presumably) losing side. Coakley will claim that the other side cheated and there will be all kinds of recounts and recounts of recounts.
From the Coakley website:

Campaign Manager Kevin Conroy:
We’ve received several independent and disturbing reports of voters across the state being handed ballots that are already marked in favor of Scott Brown. This is obviously a serious violation, and our legal team is taking immediate steps to protect the integrity of this election.
We do not yet know why this is happening, but you and everyone you know needs to be aware of the situation so that you can carefully inspect your ballot. If a vote has already been marked, you must return the ballot to the elections official, demand a clean ballot, and call our Voter Protection Hotline at 617-351-6866.
The democrats are going to use Palin to try and incite mistrust and fear among this year’s voters. Kerry is already invoking her name in the Coakley/Brown race even though she has not campaigned in Massachusetts with or for Brown.
“I’m no stranger to hard fought campaigns, but what we’ve seen in the past few days is way over the line and reminiscent of the dangerous atmosphere of Sarah Palin‘s 2008 campaign rallies,” Kerry said in Boston.
Where are the followup questions to this? Like for instance, what dangerous atmosphere? Who and how many Palin supporters were arrested for intimidation, bullying or sign burnings – all of which Kerry is stating has gone on against the Coakley camp? Give us some names and some concrete instances, Senator Kerry, of this same thing happening in Massachusetts.
And here comes the A-word that we will be hearing so much about in this year’s elections:
At a Coakley campaign rally on Jan. 15, Kerry admitted “there is anger out there,” both in Massachusetts and across the nation.
“It’s justified anger,” Kerry said. “It’s understandable anger. People have lost their jobs. Many people have had their life savings wiped away. People have seen homes taken out fro under them in countless numbers across our nation. And there’s a fear and an anxiety out there. Let me tell you, let’s not forget where that anger ought to be directed.”
According to Kerry, the anger should be directed at Republicans – “at the people and the principles and the policies and the party that threw out the regulators; that opened the floodgates of greed, that invited in the worst economic times in this country’s history – and I believe turned its back on fairness and common sense in this country.”
Hope and Change has been shelved because – well – it hasn’t worked out.
Let’s don’t be misled. They have a plan and it’s starting to materialize in Massachusetts.
The plan now is to tap into or create the perception of voter anger. They will make you believe that the American people are righteously angry at the Republicans. The Republicans have said NO because what the opposition is doing is simply wrong and blatantly unConstitutional. Right thinking people are not angry about that. In fact, we will be proud to be the party of NO.
The American people are angry but the dems won’t accept being the epicenter of that emotion. When the elections come in November, and they get fired, I bet they still won’t figure out that it’s their fault they are unemployed.
