Could MA Senate Candidate Scott Brown Defeat Obamacare?

Patrick Ruffini, who is always worth reading, has a trenchant post today on the upcoming special election in Massachusetts to fill Ted Kennedy's seat. (Disclosure: As Ruffini points out, his company "provides some online services" for the Brown campaign.) Ruffini's bottom line: "If Brown wins, Obamacare is dead."
Ruffini goes on to note that Massachusetts has elected Republican governors in the past; Obama lost Massachusetts on Super Tuesday by 10 points; and a low-turnout, competitive special election during a time of conservative enthusiasm boosts Brown's chances. If only someone would tell the GOP establishment.
