A new conservative celebrity has been born seemingly overnight in one of the unlikeliest of places – Massachusetts.  Not even so much the state, but the position he is fighting for is the most surprising of turns – Ted Kennedy’s old Senate seat. The audacity of a Republican to even venture out and try to win this seat is incredible.  A few months ago, Scott Brown received the nomination mostly because no one wanted to run for a meaningless cause.  But in the run-up to a Martha Coakley victory tour something surprising happened; Brown started turning around polls that he was initially down 10-20 points and has made this race a dead heat.  At FiveThirtyEight, their data analysis now shows Brown with a 55% chance of being victorious tomorrow night.

By now we all know the story of the Nigerian Diaper bomber who nearly took the lives of some 300 passengers aboard a Northwest Airlines Flight coming into Detroit from Amsterdam on Christmas Day.  The attack was thwarted due to his own incompetence along with the brave reactions of passengers aboard that fateful flight into MY local airport.  Maybe it was pure luck that wouldn’t let the terrorist’s chemical reaction ignite, or maybe it was divine intervention from a much less imposing and less violent creator??  That we’ll never know.

Happy 2010 to all the friends and fans of 3CB’s.  2010 is set up to be an intriguing political year.  What will the final health reform bill look like? Will a cap and trade bill make its way through Congress? Will Obama continue to spend like a drunke sailor? And will the conservatives resurge in the midterm elections?  We look forward to a great year, and wish the same for all of you.  Enjoy the long holiday weekend…
