Check this out, from tonight’s debate in the Massachusetts Senatorial race:
In case you missed the money quote, Scott Brown said:
With all due respect, it’s not the Kennedy seat and it’s not the Democrats’ seat, it’s the people’s seat.
So please, people of Massachusetts, send Brown to Washington to fill your seat.
[UPDATE: Here’s WHDH’s pundit Andy Hiller on tonight’s debate:
Republican Scott Brown went for it all tonight, and I think he got a good part of it.
Martha Coakley was Martha Coakley — a lawyer who looked and sounded like a teacher. As always she was calm, measured and unemotional, but unlike always, she sometimes seemed tentative, even taken aback.
It was Scott Brown who made her that way. Brown knew what he wanted to say and said it. He was confident and personable. He was aggressive, but not so aggressive that he crossed any gender line…
Frankly, I was surprised by tonight’s debate. Brown was stronger and Coakley weaker than I anticipated.]
[ADDENDUM: And I love this comment at Ann Althouse’s:
Gergan [sic], who could hardly conceal his bias, called it “Teddy Kennedy’s seat.”
Brown to Gergan [sic]: Thanks for the opening I could drive my truck through, you Kennedy School of Government at Harvard meathead.
