Dems make threats over Massachusetts Senate Election Vote

First it was Democrat threats to simply delay certifying the Massachusetts election if the Republican would win. Now the Democrats are saying that they will simply change the rules and use the "reconciliation option." But there is a lot of confusion with other Democrats saying that a Republican win in the race will end the health care bill: "If Scott Brown wins, it'll kill the health bill." In any event, even the media can't help but notice that the health care negotiations have sped up as it looks like Brown could win, with Democrats suddenly doing late night negotiation sessions.

Comments such as this surely haven't helped Coakley: Devout Catholics 'Probably shouldn't work in the emergency room'

Here is another mistake was discussed by John Fund:

But perhaps her worst error was appearing to have dissed baseball fans who congregate at Boston's Fenway Park, a Massachusetts shrine even in the off-season. Asked to answer charges that she wasn't campaigning hard enough, she fired back: "As opposed to standing outside Fenway Park? In the cold? Shaking hands?" (An ad for her GOP opponent Mr. Brown showed him shaking hands in front of the ballpark.)

The crack drew an instant response from former Red Sox star Curt Schilling, who attacked Ms. Coakley for being one of those pols who are "so far out of touch with their constituents it's laughable and pathetic." . . .

One has to think that despite the polls, a Brown victory will still, but this race has put a scare into Democrats pushing the health care bill.
