Yes it sucks. Yes you have to vote Coakley

How the hell did she win the primary! She is one of those Nancy Polosi types, an epitome of whats wrong with the Democratic party. Not so much a thinker as a left wing reactionary. Oh how wonderful it would be if Mike Capuano or even better Alan Khazei were our choice. But, as much as I hate to admit it, blue mass group is right:

Let’s get this out of the way. You might not want to vote for Martha Coakley. You might think she deserves what’s she’s getting after an absentee, self-satisfied campaign (why should I bail her out?). You likely want to send a message to everyone from the attorney general all the way to every Democratic official in Washington, DC. Odds are you didn’t vote for her in the primary. And, you might be wondering if it’ll make a difference who wins this Tuesday.

You got every reason to be pissed, but it needs to be clear: not voting for Coakley is the same as voting for Brown. And voting for Brown is a very, very bad thing.

I’m not sure I agree with the rest of their points in the article, but at least we agree that we have been forced to send the wrong woman to congress.
