From the diaries by Erick

It may not seem like it, but there is an election for United States Senator around the corner. Yes, its true. The election for Ted Kennedy’s old seat is speeding ahead.

While the Democrats are embroiled in a heated primary, Republican candidate Scott Brown is quietly running a solid campaign. In most states, Brown would be crushing his fumbling liberal opponents. But this is Massachusetts.

However, Democratic enthusiasm is in the dumps, while Republican enthusiasm is up. And there is a wild card. The election is being held in January, when many “snowbirds”, retirees with winter homes elsewhere, are gone; many college students are away on break; and the winter weather is too nasty for much of the lazy liberal base to get out and vote.

Scott Brown may be the best candidate you never heard of. Most states would be lucky to recruit a candidate of his caliber. Even when profiled by the wretched Boston Globe, Brown came across well:

Scott Brown is a good guy, a good candidate and a decent Republican. He would also be a ‘no’ vote on the health care bill and cap and tax and that is good enough for me. It should be good enough for you.

This holiday season, do you believe in miracles? If you do, support Scott Brown. If you can’t do anything else, at least pray for snow in Boston on January 19th – lots of it.
