We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
Fun with Martha Coakley attack ads from Iowahawk via Doug Ross. I agree that the satire is marginally distinguishable from reality, but that's how reality can sometimes defeat the power of satire. A brief sample:
Narrator: "Did Scott Brown really murder his first wife in a fit of rage?"
PAN TO KNIFE LAYING IN A POOL OF BLOOD ON A KITCHEN FLOOR
Narrator: "Could you cast a vote for an accused murderer, child sex addict and batterer of the elderly?"
PAN TO SMILING COAKLEY IN COLOR
Narrator: "Say no to alleged criminal behavior: it's time for Martha Coakley."
