Don’t Count Your Chickens
Sean kicked off Monday’s show excited about tomorrow’s special election in Massachusetts. While most polls show Scott Brown leading Martha Coakley anywhere from 5 to 9 points, Sean told his listeners not to celebrate until AFTER the election. “You can’t count your chickens before their hatched,” said Sean, “the voters still have to get out there and cast votes. The models are very difficult to measure because it’s an off year election. But clearly the momentum is in Scott Brown’s corner.”
No Place For Catholics In Emergency Rooms
Massachusetts’ Liberal Senate candidate Martha Coakley is at it again with her bizarre and controversial platforms. When asked in an interview about the conscience clause in healthcare, the clause that allows workers in health-care environments to refuse to offer services that conflict with their moral beliefs, she replied that there was no place for such a rule in our healthcare system. “We have a separation of church and state, that much is clear,” argued Coakley, “the law says that people are allowed to have religious freedom but those people probably shouldn’t work in the emergency room.” What a liberal separation of church and state! So, what other professions should we limit folks with strong religious beliefs from participating in? School teachers? Firefighters? How about radio talk show hosts? If there was ever a reason for conservatives to get out and vote in Massachusetts, this liberal candid ate would be it. Conservatives everywhere are looking at this race and hoping for the best.
In the show’s final hour, Sean welcomed John Zogby and Scott Rasmussen to discuss their latest polling data for tomorrow’s special election. According to Rasmussen’s latest poll the U.S. Senate seat from Massachusetts is essentially a dead heat. The telephone poll of likely voters reported 49-percent support Attorney General Martha Coakley (D) versus the 47-percent behind state Sen. Scott Brown (R). The poll reports a three-percent margin of error. Non-affiliated voters who were surveyed supported Brown by an incredible 71- to 23-percent. Rasmussen reported a 50- to 41-percent edge for Coakley just last week.
