This should not be a close call. There is a difference between a center right Republican and a far left of center Democrat. I have seen nothing that indicates that Brown is a RINO fraud like Scozzafaza or Snowe or Specter proved to be. He is a Republican. To many Libertarians and Paleo-cons decided to go home and sulk 14 months ago and that is how we got stuck with Obama. Joe Kennedy is nothing but a Judas goat urged on by the Left. We can disagree with Republicans like Brown, Romney and McCain on a host of issues. The fact is that they do not want to fundamentally change America, they like the place. If we want to ensure that standard issue Republicans support our positions on issues then we have to first support them and second keep educating the public. Politicians follow the popular will. Except in rare issues that is how we like them. The hard job remains in convincing the public that radical changes are unwise and unneeded.
