UPDATE: Check out the Atlas reader made of Brown's victory night. Super!
Check out my thoughts on the Brown triumph:
With a Brown Win, Both the MSM and Obama Are Repudiated
In a stunning repudiation of Obama’s entire program, Scott Brown made the 1969 Amazing Mets look like a foregone conclusion.
It wasn’t Scott Brown taking on the machine. It was America. Despite the media’s mad machinations, in coaxing the Kennedy faithful to come out for a Coakley victory, and assuming the sale, the people weren’t fooled. The Boston Globe went so far as to publish a map that showed pre-poll-closing results depicting Coakley winning. Of course, they were trapped, and apologized.
But it’s funny how “mishaps” like that all seem to go in the same political direction these days. And they influence people. “Mishaps” like that keep people home. They change people’s voting behavior, much the way the early Reagan call in the 1980 presidential election kept people on the West Coast at home. You can influence voting behavior by publishing subversive stories like that.
This time it failed, but that was not the only dirty trick that the Democrats tried to pull off. On Monday, the day before the election, I received what appeared to be a Coakley press release alleging voter fraud by the Brown camp. The Crooked Party was accusing the Republicans of handing out ballots with Brown already filled out. In Yiddish we have an expression: “On de gonif brent a hittle,” or, “On the thief the hat burns.” If you can throw enough Leftist nonsense in the air, like the confetti that rained down when Brown won, you can delay seating Scott Brown. But remember: as I showed at my website AtlasShrugs.com, the memo detailing this voter fraud was put up the day before the vote!
Expect dirtier, sleazier, meaner, on all fronts: legislative, media, propaganda, and the politics of destruction. Duck, don’t run.
Fasten your seatbelts. It’s going to be a bloody ride.
