Money Bomb

As I'm typing this, Republican Scott Brown is in the later stages of his attempt to raise $500,000 in his run for Ted Kennedy's old Senate seat. He seems to be doing okay. He's raised more than $836,000, and the night isn't over.

Rather obviously, this race isn't just about filling a vacant Senate seat. It has become something of skirmish over the health care rationing scheme known as Obamacare.

That Brown is raising so much in one day in an off-year special election is a clear warning to Democrats that November will be bloody, indeed.

Update: Brown broke $1,000,000 well before 11:00 PM ET.

He ended up with $1.3 million at the end of the day. What does this tell us about the state of politics in Massachusetts, that a Republican nobody from a small town in Massachusetts, without the help of the National Republican Party, can raise that much money for the final week of his campaign?

I hope Martha Coakley is quaking in her boots. She's gonna lose next week.

Thanks Nancy, I appreciate you sticking up for me. Even when my approval is rock bottom, I know you'll be there for me.

No problem Barack, us Democraps, I mean Democrats have to stick together through thick and thin. You know Barack, we probably will lose the house, but we'll still have each other. Don't forget that promise you made to me about me becoming your Chief of Staff if I lose my job as Speaker!

How could I forget Nancy? Of course your job will be secure either as Speaker or Chief of Staff.

Barack Hussien Obama! How dare you convene a meeting with Nancy without telling me first. I am deeply hurt.
