Contrary to earlier reports in the Boston Herald, Barney Frank and the the Massachusetts machine insist that if Scott Brown wins the US Senate seat, his swearing-in won't be delayed in order to facilitate the passage of the heinously unpopular Democratic health care bill.

Well, that's good to know.  So a vote for Brown could be construed as a vote against a government takeover of health care -- nothing more and nothing less.

At this point, it's important for Brown's campaign to reach out to Massachusetts' independents, letting them know that they understand that a vote for him doesn't have to mean that they're "becoming" Republicans.  Rather, it's simply a way for people to tell the arrogant DC Democrats that Americans expect their health care bill to be created, amended and passed in a sensible, bipartisan manner -- without special deals and backroom "fixes."  Or breaking the bank.
