I think in this race you can expect a high turn out of independent voters and Conservatives. If liberals have proven one thing is that when the race gets hard, they stay home.

John, that’s true - but many dems are also voting for him. According to poll and anecdotal evidence. Stay tuned. Fingers. Crossed.

Rudy Giuliani is leading a rally for Brown.

Whatever the outcome, IMO a lot of the damage via Brown has already been done: dems have drained their resources fighting him here (giving them less elsewhere); and just the fact that the seat is not a “shoe-in” has congress very nervous.

I think Obama showing up here in Mass for a “hail Mary” is really risky. If Choakely loses, it will be devastating for the Dems, and esp Bambi. It could also backfire - there’s resentment in all groups now towards him.

Also, as someone remarked: “considering Democrat heavy hitters Barack Obama and Bill Clinton are justifiably occupied with developments in Haiti, won’t it look a bit unseemly if they put Democratic Party politics ahead of relief efforts?”

The national Dems (tonight Clinton) are in full swing here in Boston trying to snuff out a populist revolt. Right down the street from me (Copley Square), union thugs have showed up; a gigantic “Teamsters” truck; a slick, “organized” rally that’s got nothing to do with the people in Boston.

Acorn will no doubt be busy getting the dead to vote; and anyone else who cannot speak for themselves. LOL.

The “Y” often brings people to the polls -many of them will be pulling a clandestine vote for Brown.

As a friend of mine said: “The spirit is stronger then the sword; and their mass idiot organization.

She is trailing in her own poll.


Tons of stuff happening.

Brown campaign is filing a criminal complaint. http://biggovernment.com/2010/01/16/breaking-scott-brown-holding-press-conference-will-press-charges-against-democrats/

Boy is Choakley an idiot.

SEIU buses are here. LOL. This is going to be fun.

Being a Mass citizen I’ve watched this race with amazement. I’m trying not to get my hopes to high… But Scott has a chance. I’ll be at his rally in Worcester tomorrow… I really hope some of Coakes brownshirts show up.

She is the 2nd most stupid women to ever hold office…right after Janet Du-paltanino.

Let us know how it goes!

It’s almost like she’s a Republican plant. LOL

AlfonZo Rachel’s take on the campaigns/election: http://www.pjtv.com/v/2962

Obama will be speaking at Northeastern U. this afternoon - just down the street from me.

We’ll be there too. Heh. :slight_smile:

Should Brown win, is he sworn in right away?

Barney Frank said there would be no delays. I always trust what he says. heh. If they pull anything stupid they’ll only make it worse for themselves.

We’re off to Northeastern soon - any ideas for signs?

LOL! That’s good.

Has Obama accomplished what it took Bush more than 6 years to do: become a President that his own party’s candidates don’t want showing up at their election rallies?

Just maybe - the Brown contingency at (what is after all a Coakley event) was FIRED UP and way outnumbered coakely supporters. Even in the Northeastern auditorium for Obama wasn’t filled.

In Worcester MA tonight it’s an absolute madhouse. “Nothing like this in Mass since JFK.” Pics and stuff here: http://pajamasmedia.com/instapundit/

I’d pay hard money to be able to listen in at the DNC or Obama’s political War Room. That would be sweet! If Brown wins, the game is changed if not over.

If he’s that good, maybe he could think about 2012.

God find, John. It just might be a sign that we have stepped back from the brink, rejected the socialist welfare-state.

If the Soviet Socialist Republic of Massachusetts votes to end the Democrats’ filibuster-proof majority – which really seems to me to be the prime issue here even if usually not stated – it stands to reason that in upcoming elections many other parts of the country may wish to end their majority entirely.
