Scott Brown Wins in Massachusetts

I'm going to go way out on a limb here and say -- with 63% of the vote in and Scott Brown leading Martha Coakley 53% to 46% -- that Scott Brown will win the people's U.S. Senate seat in Massachusetts.


Ole' Teddy Kennedy has to be spinning in his fresh grave right about now. The unthinkable occurred: A Republican won the seat he held for better than 45 years. And on the first anniversary of the beginning of the worst presidency in recent history (yes even including Clinton's AND Carter's).

Watch Democrats and the White House spin furiously over the next couple of days claiming that this sound whippin' (FoxNews is now reporting that the AP is declaring Brown the winner and Coakley has conceded) has nothing to do with the agenda of the incredible shrinking presidency in general and/or Obamacare in particular. They will say -- as the late Peter Jennings during one of the conservative landslides he didn't particularly approve of -- that the voters threw a "temper tantrum" But we know this spin is a damnable lie. This victory of a Republican (even if quasi-conservative) in the most blue of blue states is a complete and total repudiation of the Statist Obama/Reid/Pesosi agenda.


Of course this doesn't mean that Obamacare is dead. Not in the slightest. But the best way to assure that Obamacare doesn't become law is to find your favorite news story about the Brown victory, copy and paste the first couple of paragraphs -- the ones that mention Brown's overwhelming victory -- and fax or email them to every single Democrat in the U.S. Senate with a polite reminder that if this can happen in the bluest of blues states, it can happen in their state and their jobs are on the line if they continue to support Obamacare. Now get typing!
