You don’t need me.  You have $7 million plus in the bank, and as of now, you’re the most popular politician in Massachusetts.

I posted earlier this week about the outrageous ad run against Scott Brown (R-MA) by the national League of Women Voters, depicting a child on a respirator and tying the condition to Brown’s vote to strip the EPA of the ability to regulate carbon dioxide.

In a fundraising e-mail supporting Martha Coakley in the special election to fill the seat vacated by Ted Kennedy, Senator Charles Schumer (D-NY) referred to then-candidate, now-Senator Scott Brown, as a “far-right tea-bagger.”

At the time Schumer made the comment, everyone knew what “teabagger” meant in Democratic parlance. Nice.

Massachusetts Democrats are among the happiest people on earth because Democrats won all the congressional and statewide races at the mid-terms. 

And emboldened by avoiding the wave, Mass Dems think they can defeat Scott Brown in 2012.  As reported by The Boston Herald, Democrats pledge to bring down Scott Brown in 2012:

The Boston Globe, which is all in for the Democrats, has released a poll (via HotAir) showing Barney Frank up 13 points against Sean Beilat, but still well below 50%.

What is it with Massachusetts Democrats?

During the Scott Brown – Martha Coakley election, the Massachusetts Democratic Party played the rape card on Brown, circulating a mass mailing claiming Brown wanted rape victims turned away from hospitals.

Now they are attempting to capitalize on allegations related to a police strip search in 1991 to use against...

The comparison of the long-shot campaigns of Scott Brown and Christine O’Donnell frequently draws the objection that Brown was viewed as a serious and moderate candidate, whereas O’Donnell is viewed as a non-serious extremist.

As someone who followed the Brown campaign closely, I can tell you that this perception is wrong as to Brown.

It’s over.  The race is hopeless.  The Republican candidate has no chance because of past indiscretions which have rendered the candidate a joke, and the electorate has made up its mind in favor of the well-known Democrat.

The polls, depending upon which you believe, have our candidate down either 9 or 15...
