Massachusetts Election Results

Today is the day. Scott Brown is going up against the Kennedy machine and their token candidate Martha Coakley. I shall try my best to keep the numbers updated as the day goes on. The polls open at 7:00AM and close at 8:00PM EST. Return often for updates.

UPDATE 12:20 – Seems that there are no exit polls, so no early return data is available. However, the Democrats are already pointing fingers. For the rest of us, keep them crossed that there is not rampant fraud.

UPDATE 12:30 – The folks at Keyboard Militia have noted that Martha Coakley’s campaign is breaking Massachusetts law regarding Electioneering at voting locations. Imagine that. “I would cheat to win.” comes to mind.

UPDATE 13:30 – There are no exit polls, yet has an early set of results, showing Martha Coakley in the lead 50-49-1. Interesting, yes? In particular that their total percentage exceeds 100%. Just sayin’.

UPDATE 13:50John Stewart analyzes the senate race. His best line? “See, it’s not that the Democrats are playing checkers and the Republicans are playing chess. It’s that the Republicans are playing chess and the Democrats are in the nurses office because, once again, they’ve glued their balls to their thighs.” Classic!.

UPDATE 14:50Let the flailing continue. The Democrats are all atwitter. 🙂 God I love America. We suffered through it from 2006-2009. Their turn.

UPDATE 15:00 – If you missed it from earlier. The Boston globe posted election results a full 8 hours before the polls closed. They had everything, including an interactive map with mouse-over effects showing a result town-by-town. Now, of course, being a web developer, I understand all about testing your system. But as a GOOD developer, I don’t recall ever putting my code live to test. We have a sand box we test in and then push it live when it is actually supposed to go live. Attempt to influence the results? Or fraud? We shall see.

UPDATE 17:00 – If the Health Industry is so heavily behind the Health Care fiasco pushing its way through congress, why are their stocks soaring at the possibility of a Brown victory in Massachusetts? Just askin’.

UPDATE 17:40 – Liberals across the board are already talking about what they can do to pass health care regardless of what happens in Massachusetts. Fine by me. More ammunition to eradicate them all. See you after the polls close! Until then, real life calls.

Scott Brown (R): 1,161,586 – 53%
Martha Coakley (D): 1,055,409 – 47%
Joe Kennedy (I): 22165 – 1%
John Howard (Write-In): 0

UPDATE 22:30Roger Ebert? Geez. I sorta like him when he was with the late Gene Siskel!! I guess even the softest of liberals are quaking in their boots at the rapid rise of conservatism.

The revolution is at hand. Will you be a leader or a follower?

Revisiting Hiroshima

The bomb dropped out of nowhere on a cool morning in 1945. The day exploded like a blazing sun as “Little Boy” vaporized an entire city. The world stared in shock as the pictures of devastation began to filter into the news pages.

The ghost of that day is upon us, as in the state of Massachusetts another shocking occurrence of near-biblical proportions has erupted. GOP hopeful Scott Brown has just been shown to be polling AHEAD of the would-be-crowned-princess Martha Coakley. For those living in the deep reaches of the wilderness, who are unaware of what is going on, there is a special election this Tuesday, January 19th, to fill the vacant seat of the late Ted Kennedy.

Massachusetts is as blue as any state in the union. The fact that there is a real chance for a Republican to take the seat bodes ill for the majority party. The senate seat has been held for 30 years by a Democrat and Coakley has been walking around like an already-confirmed corrupt-o-crat.

Send money. Brown’s campaign has been Earth-shattering to say the least this past week and it needs to continue. Donate anything you can, from $5.00 to $2500. Keep the heat on and bring this thing home.

In the words of one blog commenter: What can Brown do for you? Break the Democrat supermajority!

UPDATE:The locals are getting restless. Glorious Leader to the rescue.

I will bite my tongue, with regards to what I feel about the state of our union. I give credit to President-Elect Obama. I am hoping beyond all hope that his past performance is no indication of what is to come in our future. If it is, our country will soon end up destroyed and sitting as a target for all who would wish us harm.

America shall get exactly what it voted for, and I truly hope it goes well enough to keep us from a total disaster; I shall join the ranks of the loyal opposition, always watching our pinheaded liberals who seek to enslave us to a new and improved social experiment.

Stay tuned. I do not intend to go quietly into that good night.

PS: As an added bonus, several measures out there in states are passing- including the defining as marriage as between a man and a woman here in Florida. See results here.
