For the next few days, Massachusetts State Senator Scott Brown is going to be The Most Important Man In America. In the race to replace the late Ted Kennedy in the U.S. Senate, Brown has pulled nearly even with Massachusetts Attorney General Martha Coakley. In what is often called "the bluest of states", a Republican victory by Brown would be a political earthquake. Of course, the liberal left is in full panic mode for Coakley, who performed poorly in a recent debate and seems to be letting a secure Democrat Senate seat slip away.
The purple shirts of the SEIU have been called into action and the Democratic Senatorial Committee has been ordering TV ads. They may be coming a little too late for Coakley, who has made multiple missteps during the campaign. She criticized Brown for campaigning "out in the cold" by shaking hands outside a Patriots playoff game. She admits to doing almost no personal campaigning during the election, saying that "there isn't time."
She also watched an aide rough up a reporter, then claimed to have no knowledge of the event, even though cameras and photos caught her looking directly at the incident in question.
Money is pouring into Browns offices from people across the nation. Conservatives across the country realize that if Brown wins, then the Obamacare program is officially dead, as Brown would become the 41st vote to oppose it.
I am hoping and praying for a Scott Brown victory next week.
