Scott Brown, the Republican who is running surprisingly strong against Martha Coakley for the Massachusetts Senate seat vacated by Ted Kennedy, had a good reminder for debate moderator David “Rodham” Gergen. If Brown ends up winning the election on January 19th, people might, somewhat ironically, remember this as a “You’re no Jack Kennedy” kind of moment.

Somebody give this man a cigar. No, not you President Clinton:

Michael Walsh at BigGovernment summed it up this way: “Note how easily Gergen reached back for what he thought was a blazing fastball — ‘You’re going to sit in Teddy Kennedy’s seat!’ — and discovered that it was a hanging curve that Brown knocked over the Green Monster at Fenway, where it’s still bouncing around somewhere on the Mass Pike.”

Conversely, in the same debate, Martha Coakley had what may be remembered as her “Dukakis still wouldn’t support the death penalty if his wife were raped and murdered” moment when she said there are no terrorists in Afghanistan.

Update:

Via Gateway Pundit — Martha Coakley ad’s spell fail:

I was too guffawed by a candidate who supports spending trillions of dollars on entitlement programs saying “we can’t afford” anything to notice the spelling faux pas.

Update II:

We can forgive the spelling mistake because Coakley’s people were obviously pre-occupied with producing an ad that makes it look like Rush Limbaugh is sieg-heiling Scott Brown:

    Great line.
    Let’s hope “the People” agree with Brown and he pulls off a victory akin to the US Hockey Team victory over the Ruskies back in the 80s Olympics.

    Here is a comment from Senator Arlen Spector's office, as reported in the Pittsburgh-Tribune Revue, regarding the health care bill, the debate and transparency of the process.

    "Senator Spector is supportive, IN GENERAL, of GIVING Americans more access to government goings-on".

    This is the arrogance of Democrats! They are supportive, IN GENERAL of GIVING us more info. WTF!!! We the people are the government and we are paying for the going's on in government with hard earned tax dollars. These arrogant SOB's OWE me an open and transparent process – it is not their's to give to us.

    I am so fed up with these asses! They all have to go! I hope Scott Brown completely trounces this bimbo and the liberals riding her tail!

    I went to a town hall meeting in Melbourne, FL yesterday. The original hall was canceled because a much larger space was needed. It was a meeting with House rep. Bill Posey (R – district 15) and the room was SRO, baby!
    When they wanted questions, I asked if everyone could support Scott Brown on Money Bomb Day and the crowd went wild with applause. Brown is getting national attention, makes me almost yearn to return home to MA in order to vote and participate in trashing the Libtards! (Hey Doug! KMac)
