Scott Brown is the new freshman Senator from Massachusetts!
Coakley officially conceded at 10:00 pm. At that time, with 92% of precincts reporting, Brown wins 52% - 47%. Coakley is giving her speech, surrounded by supporters - lots of long faces. Oh, sorry, that was just John Kerry.....
A message has been sent to Washington. They will deny, deny, deny, but deep down, they know it is a referendum on the Obama/Reid/Pelosi agenda - most especially ObamaCare. I can't wait to see the spin tomorrow. I will make sure to take my Dramamine and report on the more outrageous efforts.
I have a feeling that democrats will be bleeding support for ObamaCare as the new reality (and panic attacks) sets in. Even the California delegation is shaking in their shoes. They have been put on notice.
For the first time in a long time, hope is welling up inside me. This puts a whole new face on everything. The bluest of blue democratic strongholds has been taken. The sacred inner sanctum of liberalism has been breached. If this were a war, today was D-Day. This is not just potentially the death knell of health care, but also Cap and Tax, amnesty, universal voter registration, and a plethora of other horrifying possibilities.
Of the People, by the People and for the People. Learn it, love it, live it.
WE SURROUND THEM!!!
