Finally. Senator Scott Brown (R) Massachusetts

Today marks the end of 57 years of Kennedy or Kennedy stooge rule for the citizens of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. 

If anyone wants to better understand why so many Massachusetts citizens are sick and tired of the Kennedys and the Democrat hacks on Beacon Hill and Capitol Hill, look no further than Massachusetts Secretary of State, Bill Galvin’s snotty lecture to Brown during the certification of his election this morning:

“I’d like to call on Senator Brown now to respect the rights of the majority,” Galvin said. “I hope that we will be able to see an up or down vote on all the nominations of President Obama and that the rights of the majority that are being respected here will be respected by the United States Senate and Senator Brown.”

Not to be outdone, I just saw Senator Liveshot Kerry whining for the cameras about Brown’s push to be sworn in today as opposed to next week, calling it insensitive

“Let me first thank Paul Kirk for his remarkable service. It’s rather unfortunate that with less than 24 hours’ notice, his entire office has to clear out,” Kerry said. “It might have been done a little more sensitively and thoughtfully. But I think (Kirk’s) service has really done Massachusetts proud, and we need to be very, very grateful to him for that.”

Kerry emphasized he did not begrudge Brown for deciding to come to the Senate early.

“There are votes coming up, and that’s how you measure what people are going to do around here,” he said. “I suppose he wants to be a part of those votes, and he has every right to be. I understand that. Everyone here will welcome Scott Brown with open arms. We want to work with him… All I’m saying is we had agreed, all of us, that we were swearing him in on the 11th of February. And everyone was working towards that date, including the people in Paul Kirk’s office. And then, in less than 24 hours, they’re told they’re out. That’s hard for people, that’s all.”

Boo freaking hoo.  You know what it is insensitive, John F-ing Kerry?  That you and your fellow Democrats on the Hill ignored the will of the people of Massachusetts and scheduled crucial votes after Brown was elected, allowing the unelected and illegitimate Kirk to be the 60th aye – once again giving us the middle finger.  Be prepared for us to continue to return the favor next November.

Best of luck, Senator Brown.  I know you will make us proud.

Bombastic Barney: Demented Right Wing Source Behind Rumors That Democrats Would Delay Brown’s Certification

Classic Bombastic Barney.  After he insults the reporter and her paper, he goes on to say:

“That is insane.  The suggestion could only come from a demented ring wing source.  There isn’t the slightest possibility of it happening.  That is a conspiracy theory and it’s most contempable.”

The problem with that, Barney, is the source for the “conspiracy theory” is none other than Massachustts’ interim Senator, Paul Kirk:

At a business forum in Boston Friday, interim Sen. Paul Kirk predicted that Congress would pass a health-care reform bill this month.

“We want to get this resolved before President Obama’s State of the Union address in early to mid-February,” Kirk told reporters at a Greater Boston Chamber of Commerce breakfast.

The longtime aide and confidant of the late Sen. Edward M. Kennedy, who was handpicked by Gov. Deval Patrick after a controversial legal change to hold Kennedy’s seat, vowed to vote for the bill even if Republican state Sen. Scott Brown, who opposes the health-care reform legislation, prevails in a Jan. 19 special election.

“Absolutely,” Kirk said, when asked if he’d vote for the bill, even if Brown captures the seat. “It would be my responsibility as United States senator, representing the people and understanding Senator Kennedy’s agenda. . . . I think you’re asking me a hypothetical question but I’d be pleased to vote for the bill.”

And why would the people of Massachusetts believe the Democrats would try something like this?  The fact that there is even an interim senator in the first place says it all. 

Wouldn’t it be the ultimate poetic justice if Scott Brown beats Coakley when it was the Democrats who changed the rules twice to benefit them and their scheming blows up in their hack faces?

MA Democrats Scheme To Delay Brown Swearing In To Pass Health Care

The Hacks on Beacon Hill appear to be preparing a contingency plan to pass health care should Scott Brown beat Martha Coakley on January 19th.

At a business forum in Boston Friday, interim Sen. Paul Kirk predicted that Congress would pass a health-care reform bill this month.

“We want to get this resolved before President Obama’s State of the Union address in early to mid-February,” Kirk told reporters at a Greater Boston Chamber of Commerce breakfast.

…..

“Absolutely,” Kirk said, when asked if he’d vote for the bill, even if Brown captures the seat. “It would be my responsibility as United States senator, representing the people and understanding Senator Kennedy’s agenda. . . . I think you’re asking me a hypothetical question but I’d be pleased to vote for the bill.”

When are these people going to get it through their heads that the seat never belonged to Ted Kennedy and his agenda/intentions died with him. 

Friday, a spokesman for Secretary of the Commonwealth William Galvin, who is overseeing the election but did not respond to a call seeking comment, said certification of the Jan. 19 election by the Governor’s Council would take a while.

“Because it’s a federal election,” spokesman Brian McNiff said. “We’d have to wait 10 days for absentee and military ballots to come in.”

Another source told the Herald that Galvin’s office has said the election won’t be certified until Feb. 20 – well after the president’s address.

Since the U.S. Senate doesn’t meet again in formal session until Jan. 20, Bay State voters will have made their decision before a vote on health-care reform could be held. But Kirk and Galvin’s office said Friday a victorious Brown would be left in limbo.

In contrast, Rep. Niki Tsongas (D-Lowell) was sworn in at the U.S. House of Representatives on Oct. 18, 2007, just two days after winning a special election to replace Martin Meehan. In that case, Tsongas made it to Capitol Hill in time to override a presidential veto of the expansion of the State Children’s Health Insurance Program.

Scott Brown is furious – rightly so.

“This is a stunning admission by Paul Kirk and the Beacon Hill political machine,” said Brown in a statement. “Paul Kirk appears to be suggesting that he, Deval Patrick, and (Senate Majority Leader) Harry Reid intend to stall the election certification until the health care bill is rammed through Congress, even if that means defying the will of the people of Massachusetts. As we’ve already seen from the backroom deals and kickbacks cut by the Democrats in Washington, they intend to do anything and everything to pass their controversial health care plan. But threatening to ignore the results of a free election and steal this Senate vote from the people of Massachusetts takes their schemes to a whole new level. Martha Coakley should immediately disavow this threat from one of her campaign’s leading supporters.”

Again we see how the goalposts are always moved to benefit the Democrat machine in Masachusetts.     And it is clear that they are willing to do anything to advance their leftist agenda locally and nationally.
