Bill Kristol tackles the question of whether Massachusetts (!) can save us from ObamaCare (h/t HotAir) because of the special election there on January 19, 2010 to fill Kennedy's Senate seat:
"Now, of course the Democrat Martha Coakley is the overwhelming favorite. But someone might want to commission a poll in Massachusetts to see what might happen if the Senate race could be made a referendum on Obamacare. [Massachusetts State Senator Scott] Brown and Coakley debated last night, and they clashed on the health care bill. But so far as I can tell, Brown didn’t emphasize that by electing him, the voters of Massachusetts have a chance to save the country from Obamacare. What if there were a massive independent expenditure that made that point? I bet Obamacare isn’t popular even in Massachusetts. And it would be novelistically satisfying if the Democrats lost Ted Kennedy’s seat on the issue of government-run health care, thereby dooming...government-run health care."
Folks, it may be a long-shot but it's worth a try. What do opponents of ObamaCare have to lose?
And how many political candidates can actually run on a platform of "absolutely nothing to hide"?
