The Rev Pat Robertston is mistaken. It wasn’t Haiti that made the deal with the devil.
It apparently was Martha Coakley, who kept a clearly innocent man in prison for her own political gain, and thought the Massachusetts Senate seat was securely in the satchel, so much so she didn’t even have to campaign for it.
What else would account for such hubris followed by such a remarkable string of flubs, of seeming self-sabotage, with the laurels in view? Catholics need not apply for jobs in emergency rooms? She shouldn’t be expected to shake hands with voters in the cold outside Fenway Park? There are no terrorists in Afghanistan? She isn’t privy to the facts surrounding her thug’s knocking down a reporter right in front of her?
We shall see if she – or Mr Applegate – collects the reward on Tuesday.
In the meantime, the Brownies are singing, “You Gotta Have Heart.”
