Sanity in Massachusetts

with 3 comments

I never thought I would live to see it.

Massachusetts has not only elected a Republican to the United States Senate, but to the seat held by Ted Kennedy for nearly five decades and his brother President Kennedy before that.

This is a stunning repudiation of Barack Obama who one year ago took office. He and the Democrats misread their mandate completely, and have now been told clearly in three elections that the American people don’t want what they’re peddling. I doubt very much that Obama will absorb the message, but I bet many Democrats in Congress will.

I proudly voted for Scott Brown today. It may very well have been the most consequential vote I ever cast.

To judge from leaders responses, they have not gotten the message sent.

  3. […] Worth reading the whole thing. My principal reason for noting this post is I think it worthy of comment for it’s conservatism. A lot of people are waking up to Scott Brown’s victory and suddenly finding it significant nine months later. Some of us thought it significant at the time. […]
