Let Freedom Ring


The White House says it's "surprised and frustrated" at how cloes the MA-Sen race is....no kidding, how about how "surprised and frustrated" progressives around the country are with the administration itself? If Coakley loses it will just be another in a long list of embarassing Dem disappointments this year, which may be why they have had trouble mobilizing Democrats nationwide and in MA to get behind Coakley in this race. Maybe she'll pull it out but no one seems to be predicting that....

Tuesday listening:

Chuck Prophet - Let Freedom Ring!
(another great album in a long line of them)
Philip Glass - Music With Changing Parts
Amadou & Mariam - Tje Ni Mousso
King Sunny Ade - Juju Music
Eddie & Ernie - Lost Friends
Teddy Pendergrass - Teddy Pendergrass

It's a very strange day here in MA. When I voted this morning, there were strong echoes of the '04 presidential race, when I was voting more against Bush than I was for Kerry. Have no idea why we can't field a competent candidate when it matters most.

There's a small part of me that actually hopes Coakley loses, based on the totally inept campaign she ran. But I know there's just too much at stake.

I am "surprised and frustrated" at how clueless Obama and the Democrats are. The health care bill is a watered down gift to the special interests and we will now be forced to buy insurance with no assurance of cost controls. I knocked on doors and made phone calls for Obama, but am very disappointed in his first year and hope the Coakley debacle will kick him in the ass.

Taking on big banks and Wall Street would be a great way for Obama to channel some of the populist anger into grass roots support.

On a side note, I love Let's Wrestle and am very fired up for the American release.
