Nifong's Revenge

Dear Friend of Justice,

December 8, 2009. Another day that will live in infamy.

As expected, Attorney General Martha Coakley won the Massachusetts Democratic primary for U.S. Senate. Massachusetts is a one-party state. Barring an act of God, Coakley will be our next Senator.

My sentiments about this election are essentially those expressed by W.C. Fields, when he was told he couldn’t get a drink because it was election day. Fields said,

“That’s carrying democracy too far.”

I’m also reminded of what Dick Tuck said when he lost his primary race to Richard Nixon.

“The people have spoken — the bastards.”
