The reason behind the Brown ascendancy

Jeff Jacoby, as you know, is a very good friend of the show and a great columnist for the Globe. So if you want to know the reason behind Brown’s amazing rise in the Bay State, you need to go to the man, and he is the man.

Part of the answer, of course, is that Brown has proved an engaging and indefatigable candidate, while Coakley’s campaign has been plagued with gaffes and missteps. Her claim in last week’s televised debate that the terrorists in Afghanistan are “not there anymore’’ suggested a dangerous naiveté on national security, while her huffy response when asked why she has been such a passive campaigner – “As opposed to standing outside Fenway Park? In the cold? Shaking hands?’’ – came across as sneering and elitist.

Take a moment to read the whole column. It’s quick and to the point, and it does not bode well for Democrats who support this health care crap anywhere. Please Lord, let the Democrats continue to sleep walk through 2010.

    Brown's rise is so great!  I live in CT and my wife works for our local school system and is a union employee (though not a teacher).  She  just received a phone call from the AFT urging her to vote for Coakely tomorrow.  Can you believe this!??

    I can only hope the Republicans have enough pollwatchers to make sure the Dems can't get away with anything.
