And she’s left of Mao.

No-brainer.

Advocating against Brown Knowing the nut case he is up against says everything about you we need to know.

I think we’re going to lose this one. But Brown is the lesser of two evils here and control of the Senate is vital to the existence of the Republic.

Brown’s been stuck on stupid, with his saying that Lurch would be a great Secretary of State, he caught the Christie disease.

If he loses it is entirely his fault for currying favor with Democrats instead of sticking with the independent/GOP coalition that elected him last time. If Warren wins, she will only leave that seat feet first. We need this Senate vote.

The problem with this seat is that Brown won in a special election where Republicans basically only showed up. This time everyone will show up or at least Dems will moreso then the special election. Same thing with the Walker recall and 2010 where dems did not show up like usual. They will certainly show up for a Presidential election. Maybe not as much as 2008, but they will moreso than 2010 for sure.

“If he loses it is entirely his fault for currying favor with Democrats instead of sticking with the independent/GOP coalition that elected him last time.”

I don’t agree with this at all.

It’s a Presidential year, which means you get a lot of disinterested drooling morons coming out of the woodwork who ONLY vote in Presidential years and robotically vote straight D-ticket when they do. That’s why Scott’s at a much bigger disadvantage this time than where he was 3 years ago.

His recent ads (talking about how he’s “bipartisan” and Warren is a radical; and the “Vote the person, not the Party”) are exactly what he needs to do to win a narrow victory.

If he can squeak by now, he’ll have a much easier time winning re-election in six years when he’s running in a midterm-year instead.

No exaggeration. Brown sucks, but I'm not ready to be ruled by Mao Jr.

I would agree if he would be facing anybody but another Kennedy. Unfortunately, this will be Scott's second and last term. Hopefully it will be enough to get rid of Obamacare.

Are you insane?

Warren is a dyed in the wool Communist of the first order. The Washington socialists have dumped $40 million to get her elected...she is a nightmare for Massachusetts and America.

RINO or no, it's Brown, not even close.

I think Brown pulls this one out, but next time Democrats will be probably smart enough not to run a poser.

I understand, but the more time that goes by, the less I fear the name “Kennedy” around here.

Most people here weren’t even alive when JFK was President (including me).

It’s still something to be wary of, but I don’t predict automatic victories for the name anymore.

Same here. The only person happier with a Brown win, besides Brown, would be Howie Carr, lol.

Howie Carr and Dick Morris indicated/feared that Warren would win. Any thoughts?

“Howie Carr and Dick Morris indicated/feared that Warren would win. Any thoughts?”

Well, they’ve seen some polls with her ahead, and they know the demographics of the Mass electorate.

Of course, the most recent poll that had her ahead by a decent amount also had Obama polling at 61%. Zero will win this state, but it won’t be by that much in this economic climate. So I’m suspicious that she’s really leading, but who knows. Tough to predict.

Yeah, so what. Do you want RINO Brown or someone so far left it will make your head spin? RINO is as good as you get in Massachusetts and you should accept it. That’s half the problem here, we bail on some decent candidates in some states where not in 1000 years will a conservative win.

Go Brown!

Brown has had to campaign basically non-stop for the last 3 years.

Just for that sake alone, I hope the guy wins.

She looks like Carl Levin with a wig, we are stuck with him, and hopefully MA is not stuck with her, you folks are right, if you don't stop her now, you will never get rid of her...

Come to think of it she maybe worse than Levin, she is actually meaner....

A family member who has never had a lawn sign, was pretty much forced by his construction union to put up a Warren lawn sign. Everyone I know who has a union connection or a family member in a state or local government job, is getting a BIG push from their unions and bosses to vote Warren, and/or work for the Warren campaign. The fact that she is preyty unlikeable to many people, may save it for Brown. I think most people don't want to have Professsor Warren lecturing them for 6 years.
