I link to this Powerline post because of the great story by Charlton Heston training with the legendary stuntman Yakima Canut. I did not think Brown could pull it off. I feared the machine sensed its danger early enough and would be able to rally its tributaries to eek out a victory. But no. The unease with Obama's fiscal and national security policies was too great even in Massachusetts to overcome. Yes, Coakley ran a bad campaign but she ran on being a Ted Kennedy vote and supporting the Obama agenda. We also ought to admire Scott Brown's courage. He decided 1) to run against the Democrats in Massachusetts; 2) to run on the issue of health care and treatment of terrorists that the Left felt it owned. That was a bold move in the land of the RINO.
My hat's off to him and the people of Massachusetts today.
