Is Robin Carnahan Missouri's Martha Coakley?

Rasmussen Reports has Missouri's Roy Blunt leading Robin Carnahan in new poll.

Roy Blunt commented on the new poll on Facebook: "We need to keep working hard. Only poll that matters is the one on Nov. 2!" (Find more information about volunteering for Roy on his website

And on that night, amongst the shouting and the confusion and the tea floating in the harbor, liberty was protected.

History has a way with irony. On Tuesday, January 19, 2010 – over 236 years after those Americans lit the brushfire that ultimately would begin to burn so hot and so bright that it exploded into revolution – liberty, once again, will place its hope in Massachusetts. And what once seemed impossible, has now become plausible.
