Massachusetts Heats Up In The Dead Of Winter

Republicans are already proclaiming the victory next Tuesday of their candidate Scott Brown, in the special election for United States Senate from the State of Massachusetts. He's doing really well in the polls.

The Democrats brought this on themselves. They changed the rules in order to have this election, otherwise the Governor would have appointed a replacement to serve the rest of the term.

I think the Republicans do themselves a disservice with their actions. They should keep their heads down and keep campaigning vigorously as if the result was in doubt. In that way, even a close defeat for such a long held Democratic seat could be advertised as a victory. As it is, if they lose, it will be a big let down for their supporters and it will be said that they couldn't even win with a carefully groomed RINO ringer.

I'm looking forward to the election results next week. I'm sure the whole country is likewise.

Even if Brown wins, it won't matter anyway because the Dems will deliberately stall the process in order to facilitate the health care bill.

To me that is a dirty, rotten way of playing the game.

This election will set the tone for the days ahead.

If the Wingers can take Kennedy's Senate seat they can dump Reid in Nevada.

It will be interesting to see what they can do in California. The shelf life for Boxer and Feinstein is way past the use by date. The problem will be finding media friendly candidates. I don't think they can be fundy or pro lifers either. That's why Arnold worked so well in the State House.
