A (mostly) daily review of what's out there that caught my attention. (Yeah, it's possible I might have ADD . . .)

I surf the Web, so you don't have to!

Section One: The Big Stories:
1.1: The Day After: A Republican wins a Senate seat in deep-blue Democratic Massachusetts:
Inside the mind of a key Coakley supporter
Thinking about the unthinkable, Part Four
Massachusetts Election Refutes Weak Tea Conservatism
Slowing Brown Down (If He Wins) -- The firecracker has been lit. Are the Democrats smart enough to let go of it, or will they try to hold on even tighter and hope the fuse will go out?
Why Is This Woman Handing Out Absentee Ballots?-- Democrats cheat and steal elections--at least they try to. Repeatedly. Consistently. All over the country. The Brown tidal wave hit them before their vote fraud machinery could be properly set up.
A Raw Deal in Massachusetts
RNC: 100% as Evil But Only 50% as Stupid -- GOP Shifted Money Into Massachusett[e]s Quietly To GOTV While Not Painting a Red Target on Brown's Back
More Democrat Voter Fraud Tactics Exposed
Oh, My: Frank Luntz Having Trouble Filling His Post-Election Focus-Groups With Coakley Voters: ">I never dreamed I’d see Democrats in Massachusetts embarrassed to admit they’re Democrats"
Blue Dog Barks: Even Bayh Warns Dem’s of Catastrophe If Today’s Lessons Ignored
Dead can dance
Busted. Dem Coakley Alleges Voter Fraud in Press Release… Prepared on Monday -- No wonder she lost. She couldn't even cheat right.
The 2nd Boston Tea Party Rocks The US: Scott Brown wins!
COAKLEY CONCEDES -- "And there was much rejoicing." "Yay."
Where do they go from here?
Mr. Brown Goes to Washington... In a Pick-up Truck, No Less! -- The 'Cuda weighs in . . .
The House Is Very Much In Play
Liberty 1, Tyranny 0 After Brown’s Big Win
After Brown….A Call to Arms!
Dems Assemble Circular Firing Squad Over Coakley Loss; Freedom Left Intact – For Now
Happy Anniversary Mr. President!
And, this here is, for the moment, the last word: NEXT.

This message goes out to every vulnerable Democratic Congressman representing a Republican or even centrist district – and after tonight, who among you is not vulnerable? It is a simple message: we can do this the easy way, or we can do it the hard way. The easy way is, you suddenly decide that you have a burning desire to spend more time with your families. So you don’t run for re-election, you walk off stage technically undefeated, and you go join a lobbying firm. The hard way is, you do run for re-election, and we pry you out of your seats.

We want to do this the hard way. We will enjoy doing it.

That’s your only warning. And remember: nobody is going to be able to save you. If the President, the DSCC, the DCCC, the DNC, the SEIU, ACORN, and the netroots couldn’t manage a win in Massachusetts… what do you think that they can do for you?

A (mostly) daily review of what's out there that caught my attention. (Yeah, it's possible I might have ADD . . .)

I surf the Web, so you don't have to!

Section One: The Big Stories:
1.1: The Massachusetts Senate Race--(With BONUS correct spelling of the state in question!):
Wow… Martha Coakley Holds Rally at MLK Breakfast With Scott Brown Sitting In the Room — Brown Responds -- Nothing is "non-political" to the Democrats . . . Everything is an "opportunity" to "educate their fellow citizens" . . . although "educate" should be replaced with "indoctrinate" for the most part . . .
Wow: Insider Advantage poll for Politico shows Brown by nine
ARG Has Brown Up By 7; Insider Advantage Has Brown Up By 9; Brown Up By Double Digits in FOX Poll
Polls, Robocalls, Snow, and Other Distractions in Massachusetts
John Kerry: “Revved Up Tea-Baggers Hijacking Health Care” -- Since we're name-calling, Johnny boy, better to be a Teabagger than a Fudgepacker like you . . . (dedicated and committed to screwing the taxpayer up the wazzoo, don't you know . . . )
MSNBC Hacks Suffer Meltdown After Tingles Shares the Sad News “It Looks Like Brown” (Video) -- Nice, but when exactly do the MSNBC hacks NOT suffer meltdowns?
Question for John Kerry: Why Isn’t Martha Coakley Speaking Up And Getting Massachusetts Democrats Under Control? -- Ah. Yesterday, speaking as a Palinista, I worried about the absence of the 'Cuda in the Rogue's list cited by J. F'ing Kerry as Threats To The Party or whatever. I'm mollified that the Arctic Fox did indeed draw his ire . . .
Democratic internal poll: Coakley by 1 -- On the one hand . . . PANIC!!! On the other hand, Democrats lie. And cheat. Most pollsters neglect to include the Expired-American vote which tends to be very heavy in Democrat-leaning areas like Massachusetts.
I don’t know what Rally Carl Cameron was at…
Brown: If I win, I’ll be in D.C. on Friday
Perfect Storm
Disgusting… Phony Pro-Lifers Are Making Anti-Scott Brown Calls in Massachusetts -- Democrats lie. It's what they do.
To Amuse Conservatives, Olbermann Throws Kitchen Sink at Scott Brown
Should Libertarian Candidate Make Way For Scott Brown? -- I'm not sure, today, it's going to make a difference one way or another. People are pissed off and can't wait to express their anger.
Remember the truck!

I surf the Web, so you don't have to!

Section One: The Big Stories:
1.1: The Massachusetts Senate Race--(With BONUS correct spelling of the state in question!):
Oh my: Brown by three — in Coakley’s internal poll
Time out from "Stalinism" -- Oh Noes! A liberal Massachusetts Republican is not a Bible-belt Conservative! Shocking, it is!
Scott Brown is a more liberal Republican than Dede Scozzafava -- From the horse's mouth: "the conservative base in the United States, far from dragging their party moblike into an unelectable extreme, has made the decentralized decision to support the realistically best candidate they can relative to the context in which he’s being elected" . . .
The Incredible Incompetence of Martha Coakley -- She certainly fits the primary qualification for leadership in major American political parties: Blithering Idiotry . . .
No. Freaking. Way. Coackley Calls Curt Schilling "Another Yankee Fan" -- See? Blithering idiotry. But then, Massachusetts voters kept sending Chappaquidick Ted back to the Senate, so . . .
The Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee is dumber than a box of rocks
Just a gal sitting in our living room in our virtual pajamas -- Behold, the New Media . . . being called as a source by the Old Media . . . me, I'm in the basement--Not That There's Anything Wrong With That . . .
Are Democrats Planning to Steal the Massacusetts Election for Coakley? -- Of course they are. They're Democrats. It's what they do. It's like asking "do fish swim in water?" The only defense is for enough people to vote against them that their usual election-stealing tricks (ballot-stuffing, dead-people-voting, blatant voter intimidation and coercion, and as a last resort, cynical if not downright frivolous litigation which is all too often taken seriously by (usually Democratic) judges) are overwhelmed by real votes by real voters.
WOW! SEIU Purple People Beaters Rally For Scott Brown -- "Purple people beaters" . . . heh.
BREAKING: Scott Brown Holding Press Conference– Will Press Charges Against Democrats–Updated -- The best defense is a good offense . . .
Ed Schultz on Brown: “I’d cheat to keep these bastards out” -- They really can't help it. It's what they do. It's who they are.
Breaking: Joe Lieberman May Endorse Scott Brown

Europe's 'Human Zoos': Remains of Indigenous Abductees Back Home after 130 Years -- well, humans are simians, aren't we? Linked mainly due to the recent dearth of simian-blogging . . . and a reminder of just how very nasty we can be to our fellows who "aren't like us" . . .

Looking for thriving airports? Try North Dakota-- Hypothesis: North Dakota is a place where people want to fly away from . . .
TSA: Security fails to spot gun at Mont. airport -- hey, it's only Montana, right? Maybe the smart Montanans are flying out of North Dakota . . .

Explaining and defending human freedom and liberty:
ALA pulls out of Tea Party Nation convention -- more problems for the Nashville Tea Party convention?
Our Duty To Mankind -- "Make no mistake: it is wealth that feeds the hungry, cures the sick, and mends the broken. Capitalism is the practical expression of freedom, and wealth allows the tangible expression of compassion."
It's the End of the End of History As We Know it -- "Freedom, for which liberal democracy is a conduit rather than the other way round, can never be assured of its final victory, can never be taken for granted. Its enemies, among which the most insidious reside inside rather than outside the West, will always threaten it."
Thune For President? -- It's not that I dislike Thune, exactly, it's just . . . well . . . he did go to USD, after all . . .
Ugly Race for the "People's Seat" -- "The man deserves to win just for being lippy with the always awful David Gergen."
‘Safe’ Kennedy seat now up for grabs
Sarah Palin's debut as Fox News commentator on 'O'Reilly Factor' goes smoothly-- Palin's greatest strength is that she's "one of us." Beltway Blatherers and Collectivist Elitists everywhere just don't understand that.
Among the Reasons For Discomfort When Some Call the US a Christian Nation -- if you're threatened by Christians, you don't understand Christianity. Of course, many "Christians" don't understand Christianity, so some "discomfort" may be understandable . . .
Truths We Dare Not Speak -- My favorite: "4) The Ivy League is a Naked Emperor." Ivy League "intellectuals" and their elite-school allies are the ones who have driven this country completely over the cliff . . .

Scott Brown Challenges Old Way of Doing Things
Open Source Democracy: Are bloggers the new government watchdog?
A Democrat takes on Chicago’s culture of corruption. Really. -- “The culture of corruption runs throughout Chicago’s history, one hand washing the other,” said Hoffman in an interview last week. “It’s not about serving the public. But it is all about maintaining and controlling power.” You see? Big-D Democrats who do get it about the proper role of government, and aren't lowlife pond-scum, do really exist! It's just a pity that they're seemingly so very, very rare. And they almost always change their tune when they get into political office, especially when they get to Washington.

The reasons behind some of the things that we do -- one of the difficulties people on the Right have is that they have a hard time believing that the collectivists could possibly be that manipulative, cynical, and calculating. This is why converts (or more properly, refugees) from the Leftist camp are so very valuable. They let us know how the enemies of liberty think.
