Martha Coakley is putting everyone to sleep right now in her make-or-break speech with Obama in attendance. She can’t make eye contact because she’s having to read from her notes. She has no sense of timing, is delivering her comments in a monotone. Sarah Palin would be knocking it out of the park, and she wouldn’t be reading from notes.

Even with the Anointed One in the hall, they couldn’t fill it. Compare that to Scott Brown’s SRO rally today.
