Various media sources are reporting that Scott Brown has won the special Senate election in Massachusetts. It seems like just yesterday that Democrats were gloating after their underqualified, inexperienced presidential candidate rolled to victory to take total control of the government, with both houses of Congress already in the grip of strong Democratic majorities. Remember all the predictions of doom for the GOP? Yet here we have a Republican winning a Senate seat in the People's Republic of Taxachusetts of all places, the first GOP Senate win there since 1972. Somebody needs to check Ted Kennedy's grave and see how fast he's spinning.
Congratulations to Scott Brown for his amazing upset win, and for showing that the right GOP candidate can compete even in the deepest blue states. And thanks to President Obama and the Democratic Congress for making this possible. Keep up the arrogant attempts to ram through unpopular legislation on a purely partisan basis. Republicans will take all the Democratic help we can get in this year's Congressional elections.
