Just stunning that this is happening in Massachusetts– From NRO:
From a Friend at the Brown Rally in Worcester
“It’s an absolute mob scene. The police have closed off the streets. It’s mind blowing. The hall is already full, and it holds 3,000 people. There may be another 1,000 people outside.”
Win or lose, Brown has certainly shown that there is no State that Republicans can’t be competitive in. We need to stop thinking in terms of some parts of the country being out of bounds for us – the message of bringing government back under the control of the people is one that resonates. This is why Brown’s “its the peoples’ seat”, I believe, is what really blew this thing wide open…my bet is that even some Democrats are going to vote for Brown just to send a message.
Here in 2010 – and carrying on to 2012 – we need to build on this concept; we need to build on the very correct public perception that the government is out of touch and out of control. This is a core, conservative belief but its become a general belief among the people. We conservatives can ride this to complete victory and thus gain the chance to genuinely reform this nation.
As Jonah has noted, Bob Kerrey smeared Scott Brown this weekend on the topic of evolution (a little out-of-left felt, but such is the way of the Left in this race):
“If he’s running against 60 votes and wins, that is not good,” said Bob Kerrey, a former Democratic senator from Nebraska. “It says that in Massachusetts, they are willing to elect a guy who doesn’t believe in evolution just to keep the Democrats from having 60 votes.”
Brown spokesman Eric Fehrnstrom comments to NRO: “Scott Brown believes in evolution but in the case of Bob Kerrey he’s willing to make an exception.”
I’m willing to concede that all liberals are clearly descended from apes…
UPDATE II: Brown up 9.6 in new poll.
