Scott Brown looking strong in
initial special-election polling

Hot Air, by Ed Morrissey

Maybe Scott Brown will become the Manny Mota of politics — the guy who excels at pinch-hitting. After having just lost a statewide election to hold onto the seat he won in a January 2010 special election, Republicans want him back as their nominee if John Kerry gets his expected Secretary of State appointment. And according to a new poll from Boston’s NPR affiliate WBUR, Brown leads all of the expected Democratic candidates, too (via Sarah Rumpf): WBUR poll of 500 registered voters finds U.S. Sen. Scott Brown is in a strong position

Massachsetts must be schizophrenic. They elect Brown, then switch to Fauxcahontas, and just a month later want Brown again.

#1, I know schizophrenics, and your comment is truly unfair to THEM......;)

They aren´t schizo in MA., they are liberal, a far more pernicious, evil form of mental illness......one that seems to have no cure.........

Many of the people who voted for Warren don´t like her. But they voted for her because she was the Democratic candidate. From their standpoint, it´s no different from Republicans voting for an inept/disagreeable Republican candidate because he or she is the Republican candidate.

The difference between Democrats and Republicans is that Democrats get behind even a lousy candidate. Republicans form a circular firing squad, go third party, or stay home and pout. That´s how Democrats win elections.

Susannah,
I have to agree with you on this. We need to stand united. Even if we are not in agreement 100%. I´ll take 90 or 80% of the time over someone on the other side of the isle.

I wouldn´t be so sure. An electorate that goes for a complete nincompoop like Warren can do it again. Don´t underestimate the capacity of low-information voters to do the wrong thing.

If I were Brown I´d save my money. Besides, he is RINO anyway. Why not create real panic in the RNC and gain another Warren-like democrat..... why not another Kennedy? Any Kennedy? Capnip for Mass. voters.

If I understand #6´s post, a Kennedy, any Kennedy, drunk or sober, would beat the republican.
If Caroline Kennedy wants the job, she would probably get it without much resistence. I know she lives in NYC, but that makes no difference...

Special elections rarely draw voter interest that a regular election does. Brown just might sneak in. I hope so. I liked him.

In 2010 Scott Brown´s vote stopped the DISCLOSE Act. Without him free speech would have taken a huge hit. If Kerry´s appointed and he runs I´ll donate to him again.

Gee thanks 1&2, more upbeat comments about LDotters in Massachusetts! I´m sure your states have never elected any Democrats!!!

Go Scott Brown, would be a treat to have you back in the Senate, and we´re all counting the hrs until Lurch leaves us and heads to the State Dept, facelift, ne chin and all!!!

Pardon the second post, but #8 makes an excellent point. Special elections won´t bring out all the college students who voted to get baked legally (medical marijuana) and the other non-resident flakes and grifters.

Brown was a good senator for Mass. and the nation; he voted against Obamacare (his first vote), against DREAM, against DISCLOSE (as a previous poster has mentioned), and a host of other legislation repugnant to conservatives. It´s true he´s not a purist--but he was upfront that he wouldn´t be.

To supplement my comment about Warren: Even her supporters refer to her, sardonically, as "Princess." But they voted for her because she was of their party. I once got a lefty acquaintance to admit that Teddy Kennedy was an idiot. But, my acquaintance added, "Kennedy is MY idiot."

Republicans and conservatives might do well do adopt such an attitude. Plus have the satisfaction of knowing that in voting for Scott Brown, you´re not voting for an idiot.

You´re absolutely right, #12. This is how Brown was elected in the first place. He would probably win again in an off-year.

As sick and twisted as is the state of Massachusetts (and I´ve lived there for 35 years, so I know), Brown has a very large non-moonbat base of support. Enough of a base to win again. Let´s hope he gives it another go.

Easter 2014: A celebration of hope
Fox News, by Rev. Dr. James B. Lemler    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 4/20/2014 7:32:56 AM     Post Reply
Over 2 billion people are celebrating Easter today, April 20, as the calendars of Western and Eastern churches coincide this year, and these billions of faithful people are celebrating HOPE. The Easter message begins with the hopeful news that death has been overcome by life, that hatred has been overcome by love, and that sorrow has been overcome by joy. The elements of the story involve women arriving at a garden tomb and finding it empty, but even better, meeting the risen Lord, the embodiment of life and love. Their lives are changed forever and so are the lives of many, many

Gorgeous Easter Eggs From the

Chocolatiers love a holiday, be it Christmas, Valentine’s Day, or Easter. The French version of the Easter Bunny is Easter Bells (les cloches de Pâques)—which allegedly fly to Rome for a few days before the holiday to be blessed by the Pope before returning with chocolate eggs for the kids. But you don’t have to hunt very far to find French chocolate and pastry shop windows full of Easter eggs all trying to out-cute, out-class, or simply out-design one another. Good-looking pastries and other sweets are a modestly priced pleasure in France. But like fashion designers, French patissiers and chocolatiers

Say Goodbye to Taiwan
National Interest Magazine, by John J. Mearsheimer    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 4/20/2014 6:11:05 AM     Post Reply
WHAT ARE the implications for Taiwan of China’s continued rise? Not today. Not next year. No, the real dilemma Taiwan will confront looms in the decades ahead, when China, whose continued economic growth seems likely although not a sure thing, is far more powerful than it is today. Contemporary China does not possess significant military power; its military forces are inferior, and not by a small margin, to those of the United States. Beijing would be making a huge mistake to pick a fight with the American military nowadays. China, in other words, is constrained by the present global balance

The Bundy Ranch Standoff
and Attitudes Toward the State

The immediate "crisis" portion of the standoff involving the federal Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy over his cattle grazing on federal land ended last week. Whether this will be end of Bundy´s troubles with the BLM, who have been in court with him over his refusal to pay fees to them for decades, remains to be seen, with the Bundys reporting that they´ve received registered mail from the BLM this week that they haven´t opened yet. I blogged about a lot of the factual background of the conflict here, with links to some relevant court documents. This story

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

Spotlighting a law that stripped

WASHINGTON — Daniel Swalm was researching his family when he came across a disturbing episode in immigration history. That discovery would lead to a move in the U.S. Senate to apologize for action the nation took more than a century ago. Swalm discovered that under an obscure 1907 law, his grandmother Elsie, born and raised in Minnesota, was stripped of her U.S. citizenship after marrying an immigrant from Sweden. Swalm had never heard of the Expatriation Act that required a U.S.-born woman who married a foreigner to "take the nationality of her husband." Swalm, who lives in Minneapolis, found out about the law

This “Open Letter to the Friends of Ukraine,” by a guest columnist who writes under the pen name of Irina Gokieli, dated April 19, offers the author’s pessimistic scenario of forthcoming events in what Vladimir Putin now calls “NewRussia.” “NewRussia” encompasses southeastern Ukraine and parts of Moldova. She predicts an invasion by regular Russian troops near the end of the first week of May under the pretext of restoring order, although she does not rule out, as an alternative, an alliance of Putin with certain Ukrainian politicians and oligarchs. Notably the author makes a persuasive case that the long-term consequences

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

In a speech earlier this week, Lisa O. Monaco, President Barack Obama’s assistant for homeland security and counterterrorism, insisted that American parents must be vigilant because their “confrontational” children could be on the verge of becoming terrorists. Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings. Interestingly, the Harvard grad failed to mention the religion or the motive of brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after
