    I’m going to need some Advil and a cold compress, please. I’m the Massachusetts Electorate, and I have what is bar none the absolute worst hangover of my entire voting life...Think, Electorate, think. What did I do? This much I’m starting to remember. Martha and I walked into the party and everything seemed to be going fine. She wasn’t talking much, but she never really does, and she wasn’t exactly pushing me to bare my soul, either... And now I’m vaguely recalling that stranger across the room, the one in the barn jacket who kept smiling at me and seemed...

    Give Greg Sargent credit over at the Plum Line blog for a good catch here.  Read the following exchange, for which Sargent will have audio shortly, and see what it means to you: QUESTION: “Scott, what do you think about the Tea Party movement and what they are trying to do?”SCOTT BROWN: “I am not quite sure what you are talking about, what are they trying to do?”QUESTION: “The anti-smaller government, sort of anti-establishment organization that is trying to take over the country.”SCOTT BROWN: “Taking over the country. I think that is a little bit of an exaggeration.”QUESTION: “Well, they...

    From the article: He also claimed that he was unfamiliar with the “Tea Party movement,” when asked by a reporter. When told that different people labeled him a conservative, moderate and a liberal Republican, he responded “I’m a Scott Brown Republican.”

    A reporter trying to question Massachusetts Senate candidate Martha Coakley was involved in a scuffle with one of her aides. John McCormack of the Weekly Standard fell Tuesday night as he tried to speak with the Democrat while simultaneously videotaping her and trying to pass a metal grate on a Washington sidewalk. Photos and video of the incident show Coakley aide Michael Meehan trying to help McCormack up. A scuffle broke out as Meehan tried to block McCormack and determine if he was an operative of a rival campaign. Coakley is seen ignoring McCormack. The trip prompted criticism, since Coakley...

Nine percent were undecided, and a third candidate in the race, independent Joseph L. Kennedy, received 5 percent. Coakley’s lead grows to 17 points - 53 percent to 36 percent - when undecideds leaning toward a...
