Amazing: Scott Brown about to raise $1 million for the day; Update: Done!

posted at 9:34 pm on January 11, 2010 by Allahpundit

His site’s not loading at the moment, but as of 9:20 ET he was at $984,000 and change. It’s a done deal; he’s about to double his targeted fundraising amount for this push. Mind-blowing.

While we wait for the official numbers, here’s a short but tasty snippet from tonight’s debate with Coakley followed by what Ben Smith describes as a “kitchen sink” attack ad from her camp. The photo of Bush and Cheney is, needless to say, the centerpiece — apparently Coakley brought up Bush at the debate too — but the suggestion that Brown is somehow pro-rape is a nice touch, I thought. Exit question: They’re getting nervous, aren’t they?

Update: He did it.

Friends in western MA reported over the weekend that there are “Brown for Senate” signs everywhere……not billboards or purchased signs mind you, but yard signs in front yards. Most people aren’t keen on signs in their yards, it takes a lot to get the average moron/moronette to state their intentions so boldly.

It kind of feels like the Superbowl, with the Patriots coming in at 18-0. You know the odds are stacked up against the Giants, but it all comes to how you do on this one day.

And on this one day, Manning somehow gets away from a sack, launches it down the field, and the receiver catches it on his helmet, somehow without hitting the ball hitting the ground. Afterward, they continue to march down the field and they make history.

We only have to win this one time. We win here, and against all odds, we will have killed the beast. Fight On.

El_Terrible on January 12, 2010 at 4:32 AM

attacks like that ludicrous rape add don’t work. People know what feels right, such an outlandish attack simply ends up associating coakley with being a hack politician.

Maybe Brown can not win this, but it is nice to see him put up a fight and he is absolutely right, it is the people’s seat.

Alden Pyle on January 12, 2010 at 7:11 AM

But they also are concerned about how do they get people with health care (97% IIRC have it) motivated to vote for paying for other states’ healthcare? You just can’t…Why? Greed.
LastRick on January 11, 2010 at 10:16 PM

Scott should take the cool mill he raised last night and use it for ads which talk about how ObamaCare will kill their health care, raise taxes and premiums, and limit access (which is already a problem but will just get worse). That should be THE issue as he concludes his campaign.

However, I don’t think its fair to blame it on “greed”. It is not “greedy” to recoil at subsidizing other states (or illegal immigrants who will be given amnesty by Obama and added to the rolls, but I digress), it’s common sense. The Mass plan (while imperfect) is vastly superior to any plan the Commissars devise and execute as part of their endless quest to make their subjects all equally miserable).

This is the effect of the Tea Party movement: self-organized, self-directed and able to mobilize quickly while older parties are unable to change course. The DNC has been caught flat-footed as has the RNC – but the people have backed for a game changer. As those who bemoan the high cost of politics have tried to limit what can be done, notice that THIS can be done. You do not need an actual, real party to have an effect, just commitment to furthering your goals and supporting people who will make a difference.

The two parties will continue to send stagnant members to further the ends of the two parties. The people are not limited to two parties, to a ‘spectrum’ of red and blue, but can organize outside of any party, support any candidate and have an impact in the most hide-bound of States. Win or lose, that is the effect of what is happening… and notice that with Hoffman it was a minor effect that took him from nowhere to 45% of the vote in a month. Here a candidate has out-earned his secure rival by a factor of two or three in a single DAY.

The two parties won’t like that, you doing things on your own.

To Hell With Them.

If the parties can’t bother to represent the people, then we will find our own representatives who do represent us. And to Hell we will send the vaunted two party system.

What makes you think it will even get to conference. The Dems are skulking in the dark corners of the Capitol cutting deals and making it so that conference is merely a formality.

In any case, the 60 votes was just for cloture which, thanks to bribery, was reached. It only takes 50 to pass a bill out of conference.

One thing that hasn’t been discussed is how much the Brown numbers are people who have secretly been wanting to get rid of the Kennedy dynasty for years. The Dems are running a weak candidate but for every “do it for Teddy” sign, I’ve got to think that some portion of the population (including all those politicians who never got anywhere because of the Kennedy grip on state politics) want to stomp on the Kennedy legacy and ensure it doesn’t rise again!

Watch…this guy wins, and Nelson, Landrieu and Lincoln change their vote

LtE126 on January 12, 2010 at 7:06 AM

In the case of Nelson and Landrieu, it will depend on how much of the “Louisiana Purchase” and “Cornhusker Kickback” remain in the final bill. They won’t change their votes so long as their bribes are intact. Lincoln is toast no matter what so there is no benefit for her to change her vote at this point.

angryed on January 12, 2010 at 8:08 AM

No matter the outcome of this election…what is shown is that voters will back a candidate with money if they are the “right” candidate.
He may be in an impossible position to win, but if the RNC has any intellect, they will see that they need to pick “winners” not choose people who have hung around the longest.
Hopefully the RNC begins to understand that money will flow if they choose who WE want, and not who they owe…

Just a reminder -Scott Brown fails to satisfy the Tea Party’s purity tests. All those people who attack Mitt for being a RINO should keep this in mind.

Ironically, the health care program which Mitt ushered in (and which Brown supports) which is demonized by many conservatives who falsely claim its just like ObamaCare, could be a big factor in Brown’s victory – if he indeed manages to pull it off.

angryed on January 12, 2010 at 8:08 AM

It’s not Ted Kennedy’s seat, it’s the peoples seat…
One of the classic lines in a debate. If it is reported and talked about, this is the kind of statement that wins elections…or at least turns the tides.
Quayle (tho the ticket won) never recovered from “I knew JFK, and you are no JFK”…or the perhaps greatest of all…

When Ronald Reagan ran against Democratic opponent Walter Mondale for the presidency in 1984, he put people’s fears about his advanced age to rest by joking, “I will not make age an issue of this campaign. I am not going to exploit, for political purposes, my opponent’s youth and inexperience.”

Baby steps…a “pure conservative” can’t win right now…but Brown is also not running away and hiding like Mitt did in the debates.
I think most of us know that Brown is not that great conservative in the sky…but we also know that we have a possibility to do the unthinkable, unseat a dem in that seat. That would cause, right now, a domino effect.
This is much greater impact then Mitt running for Gov. and pretending to be one thing, and actually being another…so far Brown is exactly who he is.
Difficult to compare Mitt and Brown, different eras, different offices, different challenges, different political atmosphere.
I think we can put up with people not being “pure”, what most of us want is an honest politician that we can count on…

right2bright on January 12, 2010 at 8:23 AM

Senator Hottie McAwesome’s victory will be the first blow against the Liberal-Socialist Democrat Party for the Resistance Movement that’s forming, which will ultimately drive all 60 current Democrats from the Senate in the next three elections cycles. We can take back this country, from the only angle we have available to us at the moment: the Massachusetts Senate race.

That angle is the centerfold.

Our great hope is Scott Brown.

From a commenter on the Hillbuzz article:

January 12, 2010 at 4:19 am
Just to let you know, the Democrats are playing with fire if they try a get-out-the-vote drive amongst union members here in MA. My Union Local has a great health care plan (and it has no, repeat, no exclusions for pre-existing conditions). So yeah, it is expensive – but you join the Union and pay your dues and your spouse’s cancer treatment can’t be denied because it was a pre-existing condition. Autistic kid – fully covered. Deaf kid – the plan pays the full cost of teaching your kid how to talk.

And we don’t want the Senate to tax our health plan out of existence.

So, I’ve been sounding out fellow union members about the Senate election – one by one – and where no one can over hear us talking about it.

And I’ve been stunned at the reaction I’m getting.

I’ve had people shout at me that they are voting for Brown and there is no way the Union is going to stop them or talk them out of it.

And I’ve had people look both ways and then I smile and I say – “I think that means you’re voting Republican.”

And they stay silent – and I say, “Remember, we only need Brown to vote against Obamacare and then we can toss him out in the next election.”

And then they admit they’re voting for Brown.

Notice, none of the polls seem to have a breakout of how the Union vote is splitting. And only an automated poll is going to get even a partially accurate answer from a Union member – they are not going to admit they’re voting Republican to a human poll taker – after all – it might be the Union checking up on which way you intend to vote.

Especialy in light of hte CIA suicide bomber by taliban/aq

http://tpmdc.talkingpointsmemo.com/2010/01/massachusetts-senate-candidates-have-final-debate—-health-care-is-top-issue.php

On the subject of Afghanistan, Brown attacked Coakley for being in favor of trying terror suspects in civilian criminal courts. “And I’ve got to be honest with you folks,” said Brown, “I’m scared at what I’ve hard with your policies of giving terrorists constitutional rights and clamming them up.” He also said he supports President Obama’s troop surge in Afghanistan, which Coakley does not.

Gergen asked Coakley how it’s possible to succeed in Afghanistan without the surge — and Coakley gave a very risky answer for a politician. “I’m not sure there is a way to succeed,” said Coakley. She explained that her concern was with the definition of the very mission there: “If we went in because we decided the Taliban was giving harbor to terrorists, we supported that, I supported that. They’re gone.”

Brown called her thinking “naïve.” She shot back: “I think it’s naïve to say we have troops that we can send anywhere and they’re the best way to go after terrorists who train in the night, and get on planes with bombs in their shoes.” Instead, she said, the better path in some situations is to use intelligence and targeted missions by the CIA and other agencies to go after terrorists as individuals, whether it’s in Afghanistan or Yemen or elsewhere.

Spread the word on the Internets that Republicans, Moderates, Independents, Tea Partiers, PUMAs, EVERYONE needs to get behind Brown to take a vote away from Democrats in the Senate so they can no longer ram insane legislation through at breakneck speed. We need balance and order in the Senate, and only Scott Brown can achieve that.

PLEASE, for the good of the country we love so much, PLEASE do what you can to help Brown.

It’s scary, we know, trust us, but you need to take the step from someone who reads about politics on the computer and gets upset about it to becoming someone who is an activist and gets involved and DOES SOMETHING about the things that upset you. Calling strangers on the phone is not fun. We hate it. It’s kind of scary. But, it needs to be done. America needs Brown in the Senate, so we have to make those calls. We have to do our part.

You always have to do something “for the first time” at some point. Make the Brown campaign be that moment for you: first time you ever donated to a campaign, the first time you ever phone banked from home for a campaign, the first time you ever battled Eeyores and Concern Trolls head to head for a campaign.

Getting off your butt is scary, takes work, and is hard. But, please do it. We’re right here with you. We will be working hard for seven days. This is so important, we’re willing to pass up work we could really use to make that sacrifice to help Brown.

It is THAT important.

Please help Hottie McAwesome in any way you can too

I’ll never forget the arrogance of that comment and neither should the electorate.

highhopes on January 12, 2010 at 6:39 AM

The electorate will forget. They always forget. I usually try to remain optimistic, but knowing Easterners, I remain a pessimist.
Stupid city people & ACORN will probably steal this election from Brown.
I really do hope he wins, but my faith in humanity is at an all time low.
This country lacks leadership & the will of the people to do what’s right.
So many people are only interested in what they can get out of something.
They are not interested in the good of this country.
I need to stop before I start getting much more depressed.

epic night last night, eh geo…. did AP clean up the beer bottles?

ted c on January 12, 2010 at 8:37 AM

Dude I’m still up. Never went to sleep I am so jazzed. I had a couple of home brewed espressos to counter act the beer buzz.

Just kick those empty bottles under the couch like katy did last night. No one will notice. hehe

Interesting. The Chicago thugs might have to come to town and hold these particular union members hostage on Election Day so they can’t vote. Short of that, they may be told that if they have to work 14 hour shifts that day.

f.w.i.w., I’ve been arguing all along that the worst place on the planet to push ObamaCare is Massachusetts, precisely because they already have universal health care through the state, and their coverage is vastly superior to, and far less expensive than, anything the Dems will force upon them.

Scott needs to focus in on this point like a laser this final week of the campaign.

As the kids say, OM…f’in…G…is Coakley serious with that ad? That couldn’t be a real ad, right? That was some SNL satire skit, right? Please tell me my fellow Massholes will not fall for that one, right? RIGHT?

This looks interesting–bet Beck is on to it…

An online blueprint of the Left

As I write this, only 35 people have viewed this highly interesting slide-show that was posted three weeks ago by someone from the American Campaign Management School. It originates from a presentation given by the director of the abortion advocacy group EMILY’s List and the founder of the Democracy Alliance.

What it offers is a rare look at how left-wing organizations are working together and plotting a progressive future.

Beckel already called it for Coakley, no need to spend all that money on an election MA. Sounds like the dems have a plan to wrap this up for the D and are not worried. I smell Acorns.

That’s ’cause Brown roasted them last night!!!!

The reason that even losing by 6 will be an earthquake in Congress is that Obama carried Mass. by 26 in November 2008. A minus 6 loss would be the THIRD state-wide contest in a row that the Democratic totals dropped by 20 percentage points. As its only 9 months to every member in the House facing election, one has to ask how many won their seats by MORE than 20 percent? As I can’t immagine its greater than a third, we are talking, potentially, of an awful lot of blood on the floor. Swings of more than 35 -40 seats could now even be resaonable. Did I even say that?
(And we haven’t yet talked about Cap-and-Trade or Amnesty or Tax increases, or the unemployment rate in November.)

Democrats turn out for Coakley
Attendance at the fundraiser for the attorney general was light, but organizers claim it was a success.

PITTSFIELD — The fare was light, and attendance was even lighter, but enough contributions came in to enable the organizers of yesterday’s fundraiser for state Attorney General Martha Coakley to claim the outcome was a favorable one.
I think it was a success,” reported organizer Nora O’Brien. “We raised more than $1,500, and that’s a good figure.”
Local Democrats had hoped for at least 100 attendees. O’Brien estimated the number was close to less than that

I saw that too. And they keep running it every commercial break (NECN) w/o fixing it. Can you imagine the number of people who signed off on this and not one of them noticed?
What a bunch of maroons!
