Scott Brown, tea-party Republican (who comes, it seems, from the same factory that makes Romneys and Thunes) now leads in the Massachusetts Senate race for the Kennedy seat. More famous for his Cosmopolitan sexy-guy nude spread than his hard-right opinions, he’s in serious danger of coaxing voters from poor Martha Coakley, who only offers experience and intelligence. If he wins on Tuesday (as seems likely), there goes the 60-vote margin for health care of any kind. Ditto any chance on global warming, financial regulation, foreign policy sanity, etc, etc. The Obama years. I remember them. But mostly the tea.

ONE MORE QUICK THING:

Or at least we hope. It’s fall fundraising time, and we’re trying to raise $250,000 to help fund Mother Jones’ journalism during a shorter than normal three-week push.

If you’re reading this, a fundraising pitch at the bottom of an article, you must find our team’s reporting valuable and we hope you’ll consider supporting it with a donation of any amount right now if you can.

It’s really that simple. But if you’d like to read a bit more, our membership lead, Brian Hiatt, has a post for you highlighting some of our newsroom's impressive, impactful work of late—including two big investigations in just one day and covering voting rights the way it needs to be done—that we hope you'll agree is worth supporting.
