3 Sins For Sister Coakley To Pin Upon Her Opponent

Posted on January 15, 2010. Filed under: Politics and Punditry, Uncategorized |

Anyone who’s ever worked the phones for a national political campaign knows the drill: here’s your script, we’ve got 3 simple message points, pound away at them for all you’re worth.

President Obama’s on the campaign trail for Democrat Martha Coakley, contender for the Massachusetts U.S. Senate seat formerly held by the late Ted Kennedy. (It’s actually not Ted Kennedy’s seat that’s at stake, but rather the Senate seat for the people of Massachusetts, as Republican contender Scott Brown noted in a recent debate. But we’re talking semantics now, a debatable issue in a closely contested political contestant in which nothing less than the future of the Republic’s political drift is at stake.)

The President has pledged to campaign for Coakley in-state this coming Sunday. He was getting warmed up today.

President Obama’s 3 talking points that define the Massachusetts contest, as heard on PBS’s NewsHour(MacNeil/Lehrer) tonight:

  • Wall Street schemers
  • Dastardly insurance companies
  • Big polluters

So that’s it, a simple sauce all told. Political browbeating in a nutshell. The three whipping boys of the American Apocalypse, ca. 2010, all staked out and ready for the lash.
