Beck, Limbaugh Cheer Brown's Surge in Mass.

With Republican Scott Brown poised possibly to take away the Democrats' congressional supermajority, talk radio giants Glenn Beck and Rush Limbaugh took to the airwaves Tuesday to share their impressions of what a Brown victory would mean.

Rush had fun with a Boston Globe column that suggested Brown's rival, Democrat Martha Coakley, blew the election by not convincing voters she was critical to passing President Obama's agenda.

"This is the pre-spin," Rush told his listeners. "A Coakley loss will not signal a rejection of the Obama agenda, and specifically a rejection of his healthcare reform initiative. Oh no, no, no.

"It will only mean Martha Coakley did not tell the voters how much Obama needs her in order to get his wildly popular programs through Congress. Right -- it is a crock, they're desperate."

Beck, who shies away from supporting candidates of either major party because he maintains the parties can't be trusted not to betray the American people, made an exception on his program Tuesday.

"If I had to make the decision would I vote for him, the answer is yes," Beck said. "I would. Because I believe Scott Brown may, may give us more time.

"That's the thing that I pray for every night," Beck told listeners. "'Lord, please just give us more time, please. Slow this freight train down. We'll come around.'

"We already are," said Beck, who commands the cable airwaves from his Fox News aerie in the 5 p.m. Eastern time slot. "Look at the progress we have made in the last year. America is waking up."

Beck said Wall Street Journal online commentator and author John Fund is reporting from Boston.

"He said they're practically wearing red coats and blue coats up there. He said it is like the revolution. He said, 'I've heard more talk about the Founding Fathers than I ever have at any time.

"I said, 'John, this is just the beginning.' I expected him to say, 'Really?' And he said, 'Oh, I know. America's waking up. We're remembering who we are. Just give us more time.'"
