Can We Help? Yes We Can!


UPDATE: The guys at Hillbuzz are officially obsessed with getting Scott Brown elected. They’re putting their money where their mouth is, by volunteering and phone banking for Scott. The fact that they refer to him as Sen. Hottie McAwesome just makes it even better. We officially dub them “Hillbuzz McAwesome.”

 Some of you may be aware of the 2010 Senate and House races, where it is just within the realm of possibility that Republicans (hopefully conservative Republicans) could take back the House, and re-balance the Senate a bit more evenly. Hey, it’s possible.

But did you know that there’s a race coming up in January where we have a chance to make a great head-start in re-balancing the Senate? Yes, now that the “Lion of the Senate” has gone to meet his heavenly Maker, his Senate seat is up for grabs in a special election to be held on January 19, 2010. That’s less than three weeks away.

And girding his loins to sit in Merlin’s seat is Scott Brown, an actual Republican in Massachusetts. He’s up against MA Attorney General Martha Coakley, and give that this is Massachusetts, and that Scott is a Republican, it’s going to be a battle.

But you can help. Coakley has the might and money of the whole Democrat machine behind her. Mr. Brown has received a veritable pittance from national Republican committees.

GOP U.S. Senate candidate Scott Brown has been all but abandoned by the same national Republican committees that pumped hundreds of thousands in campaign cash to former governors Mitt Romney and William Weld during their long-shot bids for U.S. Senate.

The snub has outraged local Republicans who say national conservatives should be jumping at the chance to nab the first open Senate seat in decades despite Brown’s tough odds in the Jan. 19 special election.

And you don’t have to be from Massachusetts to help. Similar to the “Ten Dollars for Tark” effort to help Danny Tarkanian unseat Harry Reid in Nevada, folks from all over the country can donate $10 (or more if you can) to help Scott Brown become the first Republican Senator in Massachusetts since Henry Cabot Lodge whoops! Ed Brooke.

    Attention Michelle Malkin, Sean Hannity, Glenn Beck and Rush Limbaugh (who is, hopefully, on the mend):

    Here is a chance to see that the Massachusetts Senate Seat that has been crazy glued to Ted Kennedy’s butt for the past 40 years finally occupied by a conservative. Please join in by encouraging people to strongly consider Scott Brown. Vet him, then SUPPORT him by encouraging folks to donate to his campaign. The REPUBLICANS could actually own Ted Kennedy’s seat at long last! But it will take a massive fund-raising effort, NO THANKS TO THE NATIONAL REPUBLICAN COMMITTEE.

    Now Is The Time To Come To The Aid Of Our Country. Balancing The Senate Is The First Step. And the most exciting thing about this is… It’s ATTAINABLE.

    Here is an article from Real Clear Politics that used an analysis of the changes that seemed to occur in the gubernatorial races in Virginia and New Jersey and applied those changes to the demographics of Massachusetts, and the upcoming special election for our next great (or not so great) senator…

    Since the primary in December, there have been no ads put out by the Coakley campaign. She’s virtually disappeared (probably believing she’s already won)… Meanwhile, Sott Brown just released his first ad depicting an old video of JFK talking about tax cuts and then it slowly becomes Scott Brown repeating the very words JFK did…

    My husband and I will be out there on January 19th, come rain, snow, or sun, voting for Scott Brown. I hope that our votes count to help us stop the filibuster and end the war on healthcare…

      T-Girl, great article, thanks for sharing it. I had also noticed that, barring a few yard signs, Coakley has been all but invisible. Saw Scott Brown’s TV ad last night–twice!–and it was excellent. Let’s help him get the message out all over the state.

      • TaxachusettsGirl says:

        I’ve seen about an equal number of bumper stickers for Coakley and Brown, but am just now seeing a few yard signs pop up for Brown and haven’t seen any for Coakley… The one thing that gets to me is the IBEW in Dorchester very visible off of the Southeast Expressway (93 south of Boston) putting out an enormous ad for Coakley…

    I’ll be voting for him from down here in little old Westport and encouraging others to do the same over in the Providence Journal forums.

    Can I remind you of today’s MoneyBomb for Scott Brown? Today, they are attempting to raise $500,000 so that he can finish out the campaign. As of 9:00 AM EST, he has already raised over $92K…

    Martha Coakley is bringing in the big guns, SEIU, ACORN, MoveOn.org, and Bill Clinton and others are going to stump for her this coming Friday. The special election is next Tuesday, January 19th. This is when Massachusetts can take back, in Scott Brown’s words, “the People’s seat”!!!!!!

  7. […] UPDATE #2: From Brown’s website: $522,384.98 raised as of last check at 4:20. Sen. Hottie McAwesome is on fire! […]
