If morning mass and the coffee shop were the electorate…

…then this race would be as over as you can get. There was not a person in sight who had a good thing to say about Martha Coakley. If you so much as say the words “Scott Brown” in the restaurant people want to shake your hand.

When I mentioned to a group of people that Stacy was a reporter covering the race, a woman quietly asked, “is he for Brown?” When I told them yes they insisted on shaking his hand and talking to him.

I really don’t want to get my hopes up but I think we might be in the bottom of the first of Game seven with the Sox up 2-0.

It’s as if every conservative who has held their tongue for decades in this state has finally found their voice and is unafraid to speak it.

Stacy will have a more detailed update soon at the American Spectator Blog.

Update: Former Massachusetts republican Steven Den Beste doesn’t want to get his hopes up either:

Still, I’m trying not to get my hopes up. This is Massachusetts, where the Angel of Death could run for office as a Democrat and get elected. Not even the legendary “dead girl or live boy” could make a difference there.

Dissing Fenway Park, however? Maybe that’s a different matter.

We will likely know in under 60 hours.

Update 2 Stacy’s post is here.

  1. […] Other parishioners expressed indignation at Coakley's remark to WBSM radio host Ken Pittman about the "conscience clause" for pro-life healthcare workers: "You can have religious freedom but you probably shouldn't work in the emergency room." And not a few Red Sox fans were outraged by the Democrats' ignorant assertion that Boston baseball legend Curt Schilling is a Yankees fan. (My host here has his own blog post about this morning's reaction.) […]

  3. […] Da Techguy has been reporting from Massachusetts, and all the people want to talk about is Scott Brown and this campaign. Stacy McCain reports there’s some serious backlash against Coakley by Catholics. And it isn’t just about abortion. […]
