The latest poll results in the MA Senate special election are truly frightening, showing Brown with a slight lead (within uncertainty) over Coakley:

Time was when I considered myself a Republican, and while there are plenty of typical Democratic positions on economic issues with which I disagree, I do not want to send a supporter of the use of torture to the Senate. More importantly, in the current political climate, one fears for the ability of Congress to pass any legislation without a supermajority. And while there is much that is problematic in the current health care reform proposals, it would be a disaster to see that fail.

I was originally planning to spend part of the weekend at Arisia, and also need to spend a bunch of time practicing. I just made a donation to the Coakley campaign, and now I wonder if the weekend would not be better spent volunteering for her campaign.
