Under the weather, again.
All eyes turn today to Massachusetts and the special election that (I hope) is the beginning of the end for the Democrats. Pray for a good turnout and a fair election. No cheating, no violence, no threats. Please folks, act like you’re older than twelve!
I’ll make a prediction: if Scott Brown wins, the market will rally and Obama will try to crowd the spotlight, claiming vindication for his outrageous fiscal policies and that the financial crisis is over.
Jill quotes Lurch, that paragon of the Boston workingman:
The voters are all too familiar with how democracy works in Massachusetts. That’s part of the problem.
UPDATE II: Coakley must be really panicked. Marc Elias, former attorney for Al Franken in his Senate race recount until the cows come home campaign, is now magically by her side, already claiming “spoiled ballots.” Oh puuuhleeezzz!
William Jacobson is live-blogging the election at Legal Insurrection.
And the ever industrious Stacy McCain has a live video from Scott Brown’s HQ.
Dude, if David Brooks is accusing you of elitism for continuing to pursue this, it should be abundantly clear how bad it’s going to be.
UPDATE III: 9:20-ish pm, Coakley concedes to Brown. It’s over.
Ace says the Brown party is pandemonium!

Well, shoot, let’s invite everybody to the election party!
