There’s only one problem, guys - the polls are open until 8 p.m. The boston.com map called the race for Coakley 50 percent to state Sen. Scott Brown’s 49 percent. Independent Joseph L. Kennedy, no relation to the Kennedy clan, comes in last with a mere 1 percent. Ouch.Wishful thinking?
The bogus map shows Coakley capturing most of eastern Massachusetts all the way to the tip of Cape Cod. “It was a test on a tool and it meant nothing. I don’t know how these things happen,” said the executive assistant to the editor of boston.com. The editor, David Beard, has yet to return a call to the Herald.What was it Freud said -- there are no mistakes? There are also some tense Democrats in Washington, by the way, looking to make sure the right people are blamed for Coakley's anticipated loss.
And in private conversations, Hill sources say White House chief of staff Rahm Emanuel has blamed Coakley, the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee and Democratic pollster Celinda Lake for failing to see Brown’s surge in time to stop it.
It looks like Rahm's thought of everyone - but the White House.
