The polls in Massachusetts have closed, and now we wait. I tried not to listen or read too much during the day, because it’s all anecdotal.  What I did hear — record turnout in the suburbs, snow falling in Boston, vocal voters for Scott Brown all over the place — I found encouraging, but I know it’s just wishful thinking. I was pleased to hear that Scott’s ascendency has happened so quickly that those who would try and steal the election didn’t have time to set up the necessary tools (fraudelent absentee ballots, bogus exit poll feedback, etc.).  Disgusting, isn’t it, that we discuss voter fraud with such candor, such inevitability. 

So now, coast to coast, Americans who revere the Constitution and all that make us the last best hope sit waiting, holding our breath, a collective knot in our collective gut. It has come to this: one man and a relatively small election in a relatively small state that could change our nation forever. May God bless our America on this snowy winter night.
