The bad news is, a Republican won “Ted Kennedy’s Senate Seat.” Sen. Brown, remember how little help you got from the Republican Establishment. They only piled on after you 1) had the balls to run; and 2) started beating “Marcia’s” brains out. I’m sure you are liberal or at least moderate, but don’t cave in and just do what those pinheaded jerks in the GOP establishment want you to do.

Ugh, Rule 5 for the gals? (I’ll try this once to see if it gets the hits.) Go here, make me proud. Sheesh, this is why you leave the nearly nude modeling to us guys who are studs, and who still look GREAT pretty good OK barely acceptable even though we are ten thirty forty pounds over our playing weight. You just never know when you are going to go on to be elected the Republican Senator from Massachusetts.
“…Democrats are truly talented people. It’s amazing how they can point so many fingers while still having their hands out. All of this while somehow managing to give the American people the finger.”
“You know, it might not be Obama’s fault. Sometimes broken campaign promises are really just misunderstandings. It’s true., Obama hasn’t been “bi-partisan” but maybe that’s not what he meant. Maybe he meant that, with things like the Louisiana Purchase and the Cornhusker Kickback, he was planning to buy partisans.”

Shhh. Don’t tell them what dumbasses they are. When people are digging their own political graves, don’t stop them.
Paul Waldman from The American Prospect: [I’m paraphrasing] Jam ObamaCare through before Brown gets sworn in. There are still a few days before he gets sworn in. And hey, Dems won the election last year, giving them a 60-40 super majority, so one silly little election loss should not undo the mandate from that prior election majority. The Dems can give up on ObamaCare, when they are this close after seven decades, or they can grow a spine and get ‘er done.
Peter Daou at The HuffPo is even more ridiculous: Brown won because Obama has not been progressive enough. “the administration hasn’t been true enough to fundamental Democratic principles, has embraced some of Bush’s worst excesses on civil liberties, and has ditched popular ideas (like the public option) in favor of watered down centrist policies, thus looking weak and ineffectual.” He goes on [again I paraphrase]: Then, after the Obama election, (1) Dems underestimated the Republican “attack machine” and (2) they underestimated the influence of progressive bloggers. In other words, it wasn’t a rejection by a majority who did not want ObamaCare, it was the mindless sheeples being manipulated rightward by the Republican attack machine so that they voted for Scott Brown. And was the other mindless sheeples being manipulated leftward by the “progressive bloggers,” angry at their leaders for compromising and selling out, so that they deserted “Marcia” Coakley.

Or, a portion of it, on Scott Brown’s victory:
“Americans cheered for Scott Brown’s underdog campaign because they viewed his candidacy as a vote against the Democrats’ health care bill. You know that there’s something wrong with this legislation when opposition to it inspired a Republican victory in a state that currently has no Republicans in Congress and last sent a Republican to the Senate nearly 40 years ago.”
“Clearly this victory is a bellwether for the big election night ten months from now. In the spirit of bipartisanship, let me offer some advice to the Democrats on how to stem this populist tide. Scrap your current health care bill and start from scratch. We all want true reform, but government mandated insurance is not it. Scott Brown campaigned against this top-down bureaucratic mess. We need common sense solutions like reforming malpractice laws, allowing people to purchase insurance across state lines, giving individual purchasers the same tax benefits as those who get coverage through their employers, and letting small businesses pool together to provide insurance for their employees. Focus your efforts on jobs, not on job-killing legislation. Such a change in approach would show Americans that you’re listening.”
“My best wishes to Senator-Elect Brown. When you go to Washington, may you never forget the ordinary citizens you met while driving that truck through the great Commonwealth of Massachusetts.”
