The seemingly tightening race for U.S. Senate gained national steam yesterday as conservative radio yakker Rush Limbaugh took to the airwaves to blast Martha Coakley as an entrenched machine candidate and a sock puppet for Washington Democrats.
Limbaughs assault on the Democratic attorney general came at the top of his broadcast - and after Coakley used a picture of him in a negative ad targeting GOP opponent Scott Brown as a lockstep Republican. Limbaugh, who said he had purposely stayed out of the race, could not resist responding.
My picture is in the first attack ad thats been run by this Coakley woman, Limbaugh said, according to a transcript posted on RushLimbaugh.com. Im not in Washington, certainly not an insider, and Republican is the dirty word in the campaign commercial.
Limbaugh crowed that Brown, the Wrentham state senator, destroyed this Martha Coakley in Monday nights debate, and ripped her for saying terrorists had left Afghanistan.
Coakley spokesman Corey Welford responded by calling Brown the darling of Rush Limbaugh and the extreme right wing. The Democratic National Committee even sought to link Brown to right-wing lightning rod Karl Rove.

I might get flamed for this, but I wish Rush didn’t take the bait. It’s the Dhims’ intention to drag Rush and Sarah to this race.

Although I understand that it is very difficult for Rush (not to get into the fray) since his name is used in the ad. It would be better if someone else answer for Rush, I think.
She won’t be the 1st in the senate and — heck — we also have a sock puppet president.
Why? They’ll just lie about it anyhow.
I respectfully disagree. Besides, they will just steal the election anyway. I am torn, because the commies in taxachusetts really deserve this woman, but she will vote in the Senate!
There is no way that even a moderate republican can overcome a 10-1 advantage in MA. The state is hopeless. I wish it weren’t true, but it is. Hats off to Brown who is making it a race.
Scott Brown is a done deal. You guys are like Republicans always identifyig as a minority party and afraid to win!
