I just watched Martha Coakley’s speech (the President to follow). She was simply terrible on many levels: incoherent, complicated sentences, flatly delivered. Embarrassing promises–I’ll stand up against special interests!–which any sentient being can recognize as a complete joke and which are contradicted by pledges to vote for the health care bill, a bonanza of special interest giveaways. Most notably were the many sad sap stories about people having health insurance troubles. In Massachusetts? Isn’t their system the model that the federal government is using to take over the rest of the nation?
