Today's The Day

Sissy Willis urges her fellow Mass voters, "Don't vote alone!"

We're emailing the following message to all our Massachusetts friends and relatives as part of Scott Brown's voterbomb push to get out the vote for tomorrow's special election:

Tomorrow's the big day.

We Tea Partiers behind enemy lines here in Taxachusetts sprang to life under ideal growing conditions afforded by big-government overreach last year, and now is our moment to fire "The Scott heard 'round the world."

Scott Brown has asked me and other volunteers to write to our friends and neighbors to fulfill a pledge to make sure you will be voting for him in tomorrow's special election to fill what some have called the "Kennedy seat." As our candidate explained to a clueless David Gergen in last week's debate with Democrat Attorney General Martha Coakley:

"It's not the Kennedy seat. It's not the Democrats' seat. It's the people's seat!"

Yesterday frequent commenter CaptDMO noted with some amazement that Tea Party fever in the form of active support for Scott Brown has spread north of the boarder into the Granite State.

This weekend I was amazed to see a couple folks waving at passing motorists while sporting "NH Conservatives for Brown" placards, along the "strip" (Commercial avenue that NOW looks like ANY well developed Mass. retail strip-complete with vacant stores and buildings) of our resort community that caterer heavily to folks from, well, ...Mass. folk, with "extra" cash to spend on affordable recreation and tax-free retail shopping.

I wonder if our southbound guests made the connection, as they returned to their home state from the weekend?

The usual local suspects. No "imported" astro-turf folks.

In my reflections on last year's September 12th Tea Party in DC I made an optimistic prediction that appears to be coming true today.

I have to say, I came away from the weekend with a fairly high degree of optimism.  There were tens of thousands, probably close to a half a million people there who, like Susan and me, invested a little money and a lot of time to make it to this Washington event.  We spent eighteen hours in the car to get there and back.  Not everybody traveled that far, but there were some who came farther.

This is not the crowd that plans to stay home on election day.

Today's the day, and the Tea Party crowd isn't staying home.  I must confess, though.  Optimistic as I was last September, never in my wildest dreams did I imagine Massachusetts would be in play.  But here we are!  Do us all proud, Massachusetts!  Elect Scott Brown!

Update:  CaptDMO is quoted on Sisu.
