I've seen exactly about 90 seconds of Scott Brown on YouTube, but I knew enough to know I liked the man and that he was going to bring the pain to the Democrats. I'm pleased. He doesn't need to be much more than a one-man wrecking ball to the already teetering structure of Obamacare to become an instant hero beyond his home state, but I would like him to continue his straight talk.
This is not a time for much rejoicing. Assuming that Brown can do what his mandate demands, which is to derail the Democratic railroading of the monster of compromise steaming through Congress, it only means that we can recover several cars of money. But the TARP train has long left the station, and those money trains that went over to GM, Fanny and Freddy ain't ever coming back.
Obama st-stu-stumbled into the mess that was dorkly Coakley's campaign with all the enthusiasm of.. er.. uhm.. Bob Dole? So the goose is cooked and the kind of political smackdown coming out of the mouths of the Left, who were starting to sound positively Nietzsche-an has been delivered to them. How do those teabags taste?
All joking aside, there's one overwhelmingly stark fact about what has happened in Massachusetts. The people there, using the rights guaranteed to the states by the Constitution, have already crafted their own health care legislation which is superior to the Federal monster mash-up which bears the face and political future of Barack Obama.
He beat the lessor Clinton, but national health care defeated both Clintons. Did he think.. Yes he did.
My honest hope is that people will get over this and figure out what Massachusetts has that's worth ignoring Obama's agenda, especially considering that he won that state with something like a 16 point majority.
Oh yeah, and Scott drives a truck.
