"... as of 9:20 ET he was at $984,000 and change. It’s a done deal; he’s about to double his targeted fundraising amount for this push. Mind-blowing."

GOP Fears Democrats Will Stall Swearing-In if Brown Wins Mass. Senate Race

Massachusetts Republicans fear that if their candidate for U.S. Senate scores an upset victory in the special election next week, Democrats in the state and in Washington will drag out the certification process just long enough so that he won't be able to block health care reform.

Pray for Republican Scott Brown to win this election...

Martha Coakley Is Not Just Wrong on Terror War – She’s Dangerous
Gateway Pundit

On Monday Senate Candidate Martha Coakley told Massachusetts voters that it was time to pull out of Afghanistan. Coakley said she was not sure there was a way to succeed.

“I think we have done what we are going to be able to do in Afghanistan. I think that we should plan an exit strategy. Yes. I’m not sure there is a way to succeed. If the goal was and the mission in Afghanistan was to go in because we believed that the Taliban was giving harbor to terrorists. We supported that. I supported that. They’re gone. They’re not there anymore.”

She’s not just wrong - She’s dangerous.

Brown earns Boston Herald endorsement =>

Scott Brown for U.S. Senate
Boston Herald Editorial Staff

http://news.bostonherald.com/news/opinion/editorials/view.bg?articleid=1224899&pos=breaking
Massachusetts voters have to ask themselves a serious question before they head to the polls next week: Are they content with the current state of affairs in Washington? Are they content with a sweeping health care bill, now being negotiated behind closed doors by principals from only one political party? (So much for a new era of bipartisanship promised by our president.) And are they prepared for the impact that bill will have on the health care industry in our own state, where we already insure 97 percent of our population? Are they prepared for the devastating impact of $500 billion in Medicare cuts, both on our citizens and on our hospitals?

Why are we praying for people to win elections?
Martha Coakley is pro-abortion; pro-baby death candidate!

Does it matter if one thinks abortion is right or wrong.

Also pro-choice is not pro-abortion. And pro-abortion is not pro-murder. By that regards, those that support: war, the police force and capital punishment are also for killing.

I also think that everyone has this prayer thing confused.

Perhaps it is that Jesus likes those of us that prayed against Palin better then people like InTheNet.

Union workers admits being paid by Coakley camp…but he’ll vote for Brown
Michelle Malkin
http://michellemalkin.com/2010/01/12/video-union-workers-admits-being-paid-by-coakley-camp-but-hell-vote-for-brown/
I printed an e-mail from a reader I received yesterday about union workers with Coakley signs standing outside the UMass debate venue. The e-mail reported: ” While speaking with one of the union guys holding the Coakley sign, he admitted that his union was paying him $50 to stand and hold the sign. I was blown away, I always thought that these guys were out in the cold like us, doing what we thought was the right thing to do, not that they were actually being paid a fee to do it. The best part was when he admitted that although he was there because he needed the money, he was voting for Scott!!” Now, there’s video. The union guy is wearing a Sheet Metal Workers shirt from Local 17. Love how he says, “Shhhh:”

Also pro-choice is not pro-abortion. And pro-abortion is not pro-murder...
Playing semantic games with euphemisms?

Hell, I'm pro-life, and these aren't semantic games; this is you deliberately manipulating the words of those who disagree with you to make them sound worse. Let me tell you, you won't win many arguments that way. You'll just make those who disagree with you madder and more convinced that they're right.

It makes you look like you don't understand the issue at all.

I know Scott Brown. His kid and my kid were on the same cross country team. I also know Massachusetts. Scott Brown is a good guy but he has zero chance of winning. This is Massachusetts... A BABY KILLER WOULD WIN... if he ran as a Democrat before they would elect a Republican. It's really sad... this is a one party state... kind of like Stalinist Russia.

Yet 4 of your last 5 governors were Republican. :rolleyes:

Wow, just wow. I hope you're being sarcastic. You're talking about the state that elected a Republican as governor just six years ago.

Stalinist Russia... :rolleyes: Please tell me you're joking.

EDIT: Wow, except for the current governor, you have to go all the way back to Dukakis to find another Democrat...

A lot is going to depend on who Mumbles (Mayor Menino) backs..He's got the three biggest unions (police,fire,teachers) in his pocket and carries a lot of clout on Beacon Hill. It really doesn't matter how the middle/western part of the start votes..It basically comes down to the greater Boston metro area/Cambridge...You know Coakley was starting to hear footsteps when she enlisted the backing of the Kennedy family.

Thanks for your post but remember... there was absolutely no way Christie could beat Corzine in NJ... until he did precisely that!!! Mass voters see the disaster that is the Democrat Party and polls show Brown and Coakley within the margin of error...

Maybe I was a little over the top... I should have said Tsarist Russia.

Yes, we did elect several Rep. Governors but when the State Senate is so loaded with Democrats that they have a total veto over anything he might want to do. The real power in Mass is in the Democratic State Senate.

Scott Brown is a smart guy. He knew going in that he has zero chance of winning this. I think he's doing this for something else down the road. This gives him statewide name recognition.
