Massachusetts Miracle

Original post made by Jeff, Castlewood, on Jan 19, 2010

I love it. Are you taking notes, Mr. McNerney? We are fed up with you ramming horrible and unwanted bills down our throats. We'll see you in November.

Awesome outcome. The tide is finally starting to turn, even in what was considered to be a hopeless liberal wasteland.

Now THAT'S hope and change!

Yes, it's a miracle. The people have spoken! However, Republicans don't let this get to your head. It doesn't mean we move back to the right wing politics. It's the independents who have spoken. I am a moderate and I believe the current administration and legislature have done exactly what the Republicans did under GW. So let's cut it out and work together. We are all one country and let's do what is RIGHT for the COUNTRY! Mr. McNerny, listen to the people... you can ignor the extremists (both RIGHT and LEFT!)

Never occurred to some of you that Mass is reactionary?

Cholo, it doesn't matter that Senator-elect Brown posed naked. All the voters cared about is having their emotional dysfunction addressed. Electing Brown rather than his intellectual superior win was about base instinct.

I think the results of the Massachusetts election just show that people want checks and balances in our political representation. I don't think it should be viewed as a "Republicans are better than Democrats" statement. They both suck in my opinion.
