    On the eve of Election Day, even the teachers union has abondoned poor Martha Coakley.

    This is just sad...

    Coakley phone bank: No one showed
    01/18/10 12:06 PM EST

    Watchdog.org reports that amid bad weather in Boston today, Coakley's phone bank at the Massachusetts Teachers Association had failed to draw a single volunteer as of 20 minutes after its start time.

    When told by her campaign staffers that she really needed to get out and meet the voters,Coakley replied "Why would i want to go out and meet a bunch of strangers?" I think that says it all about Coakley. Scott Brown is the obvious choice up there. The only way the Dems can win that election is if they rig it somehow. Unfortunately that's a real possibility. Look for a whole lot of those "Voter Irregularities" up there. It could go the way of Franken's stealing of the Minnesota Senate seat. I guess we'll see though.

    Yeah - they quit exactly when their union contract says so.

    "Volunteer work on a national holiday???

    To hell with that!!!!"

    Here's another classic Coakley quote..."It is now clear that the Terrorists have left Afghanistan." Say Whaa?? Does Coakley ever watch the news for God's sake? Did she see the terrible Terrorist attack in Afghanistan today? Come on Massachusetts,Scott Brown is the logical choice.

    You know she will get hit on that one.

    She is a bumbler to be sure - but without the media cover that Obama has enjoyed to cover up his own many multiple failings.

    That is starting to change though...

    Can you blame them? Martha isn't exactly "Ms. Excitement" as a candidate and I'd imagine that teachers have better things to do than pitching on behalf of yet another "Change you can't believe in" democratic partisan hack.
