Stunned Dems temporarily take blinders off

"I never thought I'd see the day when a Republican replaces Ted Kennedy," Mayor Thomas M. Menino told the Herald last night. "I think Scott Brown caught the wave of anger that's out there, and the wave of anti-Obama."


What rock has this bozo been living under? We just can't stomach socialism in this country! This most certainly IS a referendum on 'government-run' healthcare insurance and mandates on individuals.

What we do need now is to scrap the ridiculous plans the Democrats have, and enact simple legislation which only provides catastrophic health insurance for those who don't have it, provides for interstate competition amongst current insurers, and once and for all addresses tort reform. That's it. I'm certain that ALL of the republicans would vote for such a bill.

Upstart Republican Scott Brown rocketed to victory in the race to the U.S. Senate yesterday, steamrolling Attorney General Martha Coakley's layabout campaign in an against-all-odds triumph that sent shock waves from the Heartland to the White House.

"I thought it was going to be me against the machine. I was wrong. It's all of us against the machine," Brown told rollicking supporters at the Boston Park Plaza Hotel. "You have shown everyone now that you are the machine."

Demoralized Democrats were left grappling with the notion of a once-obscure GOP insurgent snatching the late Sen. Edward M. Kennedy's seat in the so-called bluest state, only to possibly seal the demise of the late senator's health-care dream - and single-handedly knock President Obama's agenda off course.
