Events in Massachusetts

By now everyone has been reading about the special election to fill the U.S. senate seat recently vacated following the death of Edward Kennedy. The Democrats filled the position with a lackey named Kirk who pledged not to run in the special election. This was suppose to be Martha Coakley's seat. After all she was the state attorney general and it was her turn. The Democrats own the seat and we all want to honor old Teddy, right?

Well, someone forgot to tell Scott Brown the Republican nominee. At first he was going to be the typical sacrificial lamb offered by by a lack luster remnant of what republican politics in the Northeast had once been. Then again someone also forgot to tell the people of Massachusetts - still think that their vote ought to mean something.

Now clear us be clear. Brown is not pro-life and he has a lot to learn on the issue. But he will be better than Coakley who is an Emily's list and Planned Parenthood affectionado. Sher responded in an interview asking about conscience rights of Catholic health care workers that “You can have religious freedom but you probably shouldn’t work in the emergency room.” So in addition to being an elitist, she has an anti-Catholic prejudice.

Brown opposes ObamaCare, pledges to be the 41st vote against it, does not want tax dollars going for abortion and supports parental notification laws. Coakley is calling him "anti-choice." Well he may not be there yet, but if the left pushes hard enough, they may push him right into a pro-life position.

We like true converts. Here is an opportunity to win one and establish lines of real communication.

The results of this election could be the beginning of something big.
