Massachusetts special election - Later this month, there's an election to fill Ted Kennedy's vacant Senate seat. It would seem beyond the limits of hope that a Republican could claim the seat of the "Lion of the Senate" in the bluest state in the country. But, as Bill Jacobson notes, special elections are all about enthusiasm and, so far, state senator Scott Brown is generating buzz while Democrat Martha Coakley is laying low and refusing to debate Brown one-on-one. Here in Western Massachusetts (and I assume elsewhere in the Bay State), Brown is running this clever commercial in which he morphs from a tax-cutting JFK, closing with the slogan "Less taxes = more jobs." Sounds like a plan, Jack!
