Henry Lodge...Now *there’s* a blast from the past.

In my wildest dreams I never thought it would be the State of Mass. To save the Republic.
Henry Cabot Lodge was one of the most influential Republicans of his day. When he was defeated by the young JFK in an an Eisenhower year, it was the end of an era in Massachusetts politics. A win by Scott Brown Tuesday will mark the formal close of the Kennedy era in the state.

JFK attended tea parties
Oh, JFK was a teabagger?
Wonder of wonders, miracle of miracles! I just got off the phone with my 88 year-old father; a died in the wool, life-long democrat who was born in and has lived in Mass for over 70 years. HE HAS NEVER VOTED FOR A REPUBLICAN
NEVER. After polite chit chat about the NFL play off games I dared broach the subject and asked him if he was going to vote on Tuesday (every time politics have come up in the past he has berated me with tirades about those evil republicans). Well, he came right out and told me
I AM going to vote on Tuesday and I am seriously thinking of voting for Scott Brown. Needless to say I was and am totally ASTONISHED
ASTONISHED (I did not let him know in the least and kept my heart-felt joy and enthusiasm at his answer to my self so as to not scare him off)!
I tactfully asked him WHY he was going to vote for Brown and his answer was: Because of the healthcare bill Obama is trying to pass. I carefully agreed with him and reinforced the fact that Obama wants to gut Medicare/Medicaid by taking away 500 BILLION DOLLARS from the system and that if he adds 40 million people to the rolls, especially illegal aliens the health care system would collapse
I told him that Brown is an honorable man and that he is totally opposed to the healthcare bill and would vote against it
MY DAD AGREED! I was flabbergasted!
If my own father; a life-long Massachusetts FDR Democrat who has voted for EVERY Kennedy, Kerry/democrat to ever come down the pike, is going to vote for Scott Brown, a REPUBLICAN, BECAUSE OF HIS OPPOSITION TO Obama and his evil healthcare debacle then things are looking VERY promising for Scott Brown and we could all be in for an incredible victory on Tuesday. To this end I am fervently praying.

Anybody other than me remember Al Capp's name for the thinly disguised caricature of Henry Cabot Lodge appearing in his Lil Abner comic strip?
Answer: Henry Cabbage Lard.
