Go Scott Go!
I've been following the special election in Massachusetts since I lived there for five years. Scott Brown, the Republican candidate for the Senate seat that has been held by
an interim senator placeholder since Kennedy's death is, by all accounts, kicking some major butt. He raised over $1 million in a single day (yesterday) and 75% of people in a Boston Globe poll said that he won the debate with Coakley last night. Coakley unveiled a negative ad right after the debate and this seems, from a quick scan of comments on the Globe article, to be losing her votes. What these people don't realize is that the same-old, same-old won't fly. The sleeping giant has awakened; the frog realized the water was hot and has jumped out of the pot. I could probably come up with about 25 more pithy sayings, but will refrain. Just as a side note, I was able to spell Massachusetts correctly the first time and, as a last resort, know how to use a spell-check, unlike the folks who created Coakley's slam ad.
