Mass. Anxiety Attack: Todd Says Dems Have 'Huge Concern' Brown Could Win Read more:

How panicked are top Dems at the prospect that Republican Scott Brown will do the unthinkable and win the special election for the open Senate seat in Massachusetts? Enough that Harry Reid, despite his desperate fight to save his own skin in Nevada, has returned to DC to do what he can to help the hapless Dem candidate, the charisma-deprived Martha Coakley, hang on.

Enough that NBC political director Chuck Todd describes top Dems as having a "huge concern" over the Mass. race.

Todd gave his dismal-for-Dems assessment on this evening's Ed Show . . .

I place my bet on the amazing New England capacity for stupidity: Brown won’t win. But who knows, those addled 60’s throwbacks have to die off sometime. Perhaps there’s hope.

Unless he wins by 10 he will lose, if not on election day, on the recount..

I hear you, but let’s remember that even in corrupt New Jersey, Christie managed to make Corzine concede on election night.

Two things we can all do whether we live in MA or not.

1. Pray. Pray that Scott Brown wins, not only because he’s the better candidate, but because it will also torment those who generally hate God, hate this country, and are elitist oligarch snobs that deserve to have it shoved in their faces, finally.

2. Send any size donation in to their campaign. Everything helps, you can say you helped get a republican elected in MASSACHUSETTS in all places, into Ted Kennedy’s former seat. If that’s not something you’ll be able to get some story mileage out of in the years to come, then you’re just not thinking proactively.

3. Send the donation because you want Obamacare going down. This election is the Lexington and Concord for the Novermber elections. The dems are going down. Let’s get behind him and totally demoralize them. If he really is the guy we saw at the debate last night, he right now is not tainted by years and years of being in the senate as a compromiser. We need more people like this in the senate.

I sent mine in last week, I want this guy to win.

Wouldn’t that be amazing? Starts with getting a top Republican in race.

A Republican winning Ted Kennedy's seat would signal political Armageddon for the Dems. They will use every trick and fraud to avoid that. They will have hordes of the Undead marching toward the polls, if need be.

If Brown wins, Obama is finished. Dems will distance themselves from ObamaCare and everything associated with him and Pelosi.

Exactly. NO EEYORES please. We don't need +10 to win. At all. Brown needs +2 (maybe a bit more?) to make it obvious they're cheating if they start printing ballots afterward. Either way, he doesn't need +10. The GOP could stuff OMOSLEM in the trash with this ONE VOTE. This race is a dead heat. We CAN win. Absolutely. Enjoy Anti-Commie photos at BRAVE NEW COMMIE.

A Republican in MA?

I’ll believe it when I see it.

I’m sure ACORN, the Unions and illegal aliens are being bused in as we speak....

A Republican in MA? I’ll believe it when I see it...ironic indeed that the first post-Reconstruction black Senator was in fact a Republican from Massachusetts - Edward Brooke...an inconvenient truth for lefties all over the country...

Republicans can and have won statewide races in MA for goveror, Romney and Weld. So it isn’t impossible.
In any case if Brown loses the R’s need to find a way to get him involved in national politics in another way.

OMG, I watched the video and I laughed silly. Man, do the rats look desperate, or what?  I think Scott is doing better than the liberal mainstream media suggests.

They are so desperate, they can't even spell 'Massachusetts.' If you look at the white letters on this graphic you'll see Massachusettes spelled with “e” at the end. LOL.

Come gather ‘round people
Wherever you roam
And admit that the waters
Around you have grown
And accept it that soon
You’ll be drenched to the bone.
If your time to you
Is worth savin’
Then you better start swimmin’
Or you’ll sink like a stone
For the times they are a-changin’.

Come writers and critics
Who prophesize with your pen
And keep your eyes wide
The chance won’t come again
And don’t speak too soon
For the wheel’s still in spin
And there’s no tellin’ who
That it’s namin’.
For the loser now
Will be later to win
For the times they are a-changin’.

Come senators, congressmen
Please heed the call
Don’t stand in the doorway
Don’t block up the hall
For he that gets hurt
Will be he who has stalled
There’s a battle outside
And it is ragin’.
It’ll soon shake your windows
And rattle your walls
For the times they are a-changin’.

~ Bob Dylan
