I've been suspicious about this thing from the beginning. A jillion dollars of national money pouring in for media buys, with no baseline and no accountability, all to be spent in two weeks? It's a consultant's dream.Brown’s definitely done all the right things – and Martha has done just about everything wrong. But the Dem base is starting to galvanize, and Beacon Hill and the SEIU will have their legions of hacks out in force next week. Massachusetts is still a Blue State to its machine core. Maybe I’ve caught a bad case of the too-good-to-be-true blues about Brown’s candidacy. I’m just hoping the race is close enough that it’s seen as a clear shot-across-the-bow protest against both national and state Democratic pols and policies.
That said Brown is doing the right thing and nationalizing the race.
Good Scott Brown story, and framing ("It's me against the machine"), from DC-based Byron York. It's refreshing to read about jobs that aren't/weren't created by the government, a largely foreign concept to Democrats including their Massachusetts Senate candidate.
The 'AG curse' looms -- could history repeat itself in this most historical commonwealth?
