Scott Brown Within Reach in Massachusetts

As readers know, I've been busy with a lot of different things this last couple of weeks, not the least of which has been sports-related. But with school starting next week, it's time to get back up to speed on politics. Frankly, I've been behind on the Scott Brown story in Massachusetts. But tuning in now I see things are looking quite good, and Brown's an extremely interesting candidate (a 30-year Massachusetts National Guardsman who once did a semi-nude photo-spread for Cosmopolitan - how's that for the ladies!!??).

Brown was interviewed last night on Hannity's show:

Here's Brown's recent ad buy:

Some of the best blogging on the Massachusetts race has has been over at William Jacobson's Legal Insurrection. Here's this morning's entry, "Call Dems Bluff On Refusing To Seat Scott Brown ." The word is that Democrats see a Brown victory as possible, and have developed contingency plans to pass ObamaCare without certifying the Massachusetts election results (and that way avoiding a renewed filibuster in the Senate). Pundit & Pundette has more on that, "Refusal to Seat Brown if Elected?"

Anyway, HillBuzz has an interesting take on the sheer terror among the left's Obamabots, and the all-out campaign to demonize and destroy Scott Brown that's been bubbling. See, "
An Open Letter to Scott Brown Supporters Regarding Eeyorism and Concern Trolls":
To Scott Brown and all his supporters,

We are writing to you as moderate Democrats who fought for Hillary Clinton all through 2007-2008, then became Democrats for McCain/Palin and remain supporters of former Govenor Palin now. This means that for almost three years now, we have been on the receiving end of everything the Left has dreamed up to throw at us. Dr. Utopia, our current president, and his supporters are truly the most vile and malicious people we’ve ever been up against. In the primaries, in particular, their viciousness, hatred, and stop-at-nothing/ends-justify-means attitude was sobering. We learned many lessons in the trenches we won’t soon forget — and need to pass on to you now.

For the next ten days, the most effective thing the Left will do is to demoralize Scott Brown’s supporters to convince them to sit their butts home on election day. It is a time-proven and successful tactic of the Left. Frankly, it’s the best tool in their arsenal. We call this Eeyore-breeding and concern-trolling.

Here’s what they’re going to do ....

Doesn't Scott Brown support requiring people by law to obtain health insurance? That's what the 2006 Massachutts health care law (signed in by Mitt Romney) requires and he says he supports that. All you have to do is check Scott Brown's own website under Issues

Scott Brown seems like another politician who uses partisanship to get elected. I do not see him as the type to stand on principle if elected.

This kind of reminds me how conservatives were so excited about getting Arnold Schwarzenegger elected Governor in California. Well they aren't too excited about him now are they?

Conservatives seem to be doomed to repeat history over and over again.
