"'It's not the Kennedy seat, it's the people's seat" is perfect pitch[fork]," we wrote in the comments to Dan Riehl's provocatively titled "Mass: Why Scott Brown's Quote Fell Short." Fell short? We almost had a heart attack till we got to Riehl's punchline:
In last night's debate, Scott Brown had to remind moderator David Gergen, "It’s not the Kennedy seat, it’s the people’s seat." Brown should have added, It's not the Coakley seat, either, even if only for Martha Coakley's sake. Based upon her lack of ideas, poor campaign preparation and two-year-old rhetoric, it's clear Coakley believed it belonged to her and not the people going in.
The rest of our own comments:
It's what we Tea Partiers have been all about from the start and will be the perfect rallying cry to shred the "arguments" of those same-old, same-old Beacon Hill machine types who would delay certifying a Brown victory till after the Obamacare vote. Where do I get my T-shirt and mug?
Our friend neo has video of the money quote. "And I love this comment at Ann Althouse's," she adds:
Gergen, who could hardly conceal his bias, called it “Teddy Kennedy’s seat."
Brown to Gergen: Thanks for the opening I could drive my truck through, you Kennedy School of Government at Harvard meathead.
It's the people's seat, stupid!
Update III. Just got a call from a volunteer at downtown Boston phone bank at GOP headquarters, 85 Merrimac Street, not far from City Hall — asking us to do some more calls to get out the vote. We're heading in there Thursday morning. If you're in the area and in it to win it, come on down! Leave any questions you may have in the comments, and we'll either email you or answer you there. It's the GOTV, stupid?
Update IV: We'll drink to that! Vodkapundit lifts a glass to us in "The Week in Blogs — The Links!"
