Will it be Republican Scott Brown, or Democrat Martha Coakley?  The race is a statistical dead heat, and if there is any numerically significant initiative, it’s Brown’s.

Stop and consider that for a moment.  We’re talking about Massachusetts, folks.  It is amazing that this seat is even in play.  For Brown to be in a plausible position to win it is incredible.

Obama tried to save it with a campaign visit.  The irony there is that it’s Obama’s fault the race is even close in the first place.  By coming all guns blazing on all fronts, Obama and his allies in Congress have guaranteed the failure of a substantial part of their radical leftist agenda.  A modicum of restraint and a little accompanying patience might have passed it all.

Instead, people are paying attention, and instead of a mediocre candidate like Coakley getting a five- or six-point win on momentum in one of the bluest states in the union, she may well lose.

Wow.

  1. As I type polls are open for almost another two hours, yet the political catfight of the year is already shaping up between the White House and the Coakley camp. Warring memos, anyone?

    Unbelievable. You cannot make this shit up.

  2. They just called it for Brown. The supermajority is dead, thank goodness. Now we get to see the Dems in full desperation-mode over health care “reform”. This should be fun to watch.

  3. Still substantial peril ahead, but the immediate threat took a big hit tonight, no question.

    A Republican won Kennedy’s old seat in Massachusetts. Wow. It’s hard to overstate the impact of that.

  4. Totally. I spent too many years in the northeast, and it’s not just a Republican winning. It’s a CONSERVATIVE winning. Northeast GOPs are generally RINOs, and that’s just the reality of who they represent. That Brown can win with the agenda he’s espousing is the shattering point here.

    Oh, and what do you think of Malkin’s proposal to let Brown do the rebuttal of the SotU speech?

  5. First Alabama takes the national championship and now a gift from the citizens of Massachusetts. This a great way to start 2010….oh still my heart!

  6. Unbelievable! 🙂
