GOP's Brown wins Mass. Senate seat in epic upset
AP on Yahoo ^ | 1/19/10 | Glenn Johnson and Liz Sidoti - ap

Posted on 01/19/2010 6:29:59 PM PST by NormsRevenge

BOSTON – In an epic upset in liberal Massachusetts, Republican Scott Brown rode a wave of voter anger to defeat Democrat Martha Coakley in a U.S. Senate election Tuesday that left President Barack Obama's health care overhaul in doubt and marred the end of his first year in office.

The loss by the once-favored Coakley for the seat that the late Sen. Edward M. Kennedy held for nearly half a century signaled big political problems for the president's party this fall when House, Senate and gubernatorial candidates are on the ballot nationwide.

Obama and the Communists are going to turn Washington in to Iwo Jima. They will not surrender until every last one is terminated one way or the other as Pelosi said. Bring home the Marines and sic em on the real enemy.

You can quit calling it Ted Kennedys’ seat. R.I.P.
You can start calling it Scott Browns’ seat.

This is not only a victory for Brown. This is a victory for populism.

Sarah Palin becomes a more likely candidate because of this victory—and GOP insiders everywhere are probably slightly uncomfortable as a result.

Good evening, gentlemen.

I have an idea for a sarcastic political cartoon, which would require more photoshop skills than I have.

Remember the scene from The Godfather where the guy wakes up with the horse's head in his bed?

How about a photoshop with Obama waking up with a pink unicorn's head in his bed?

Label it "Victory in Massachusettes".

Anyone up to it?

Cheers!

I'm glad he won, but I'm more interested in what the end results are. The reason I say this is that it'll give everyone an idea of just how effective, or ineffective, the Dems were in rigging the election.
I say this because it's almost a given that there would be some skulduggery to ensure "Marcia, Marcia, Marcia" won.
I'll be comparing the final tally against the visual of an empty Coakley headquarters as shown on several news outlets as an actual representation of the vote.

I just tuned into CNN. It's like a morgue over there. Commentators are saying:

"Coakley ran a bad campaign."
"Brown played to economic fears."
"This is a terrible development in Massachusetts politics."

Since the contest was nationalized, we in the rest of the nation need to be relentless about reminding everyone of that. This was about the tyranny of the super-majority.

Importantly, more than being just nationalized in terms of the issues raised in Mass, it was a nationalized support effort, with money bombs, remote phone banking, and $$ and shout-outs (grin) from across the coutry flooding into the Brown campaign.

Let’s all welcome Scott to DC, how about a few thousand from lots of states coming to the capital to show that we all across America are excited about what the whistle-past-the-graveyard gangs will deprecate as a “local” aberration in Mass.

I’m half-inclined to paste a Scott Brown bumper sticker on my car here in MD. Last week, the local liberals would have said “Scott Who?” - but not after today.

Wow!

Six months ago, if anyone here would have even breathed the possibility of a victory like this to celebrate Obammy’s Emaculation, people like me would have set on you and laughed you out of the room.

We have been to the brink my friends, and it looks like Massachusetts voters pulled us all back from the edge.

That giant BOOM you just heard was the collective assholes of every Dhimmie up for election this year slamming shut in unison.

Wouldn’t you love to be in the room to witness Nancy Pelosi’s screaming temper tantrum over this..??

Time to break out the good bottle of Irish whiskey...Black Bush tonight boys and girls...!!

On MSMBC the reporter said that when Brown’s daughter told the audience that Coakley had conceded, the audience turned to the camera’s and yelled “JOHN KERRY YOUR NEXT”.
Hehe
They were incensed!

No, it wouldn't. A Republican would have to win the seat all over again. I don't want to see that seat up for grabs for six years.

I suspect the ‘rats don’t have an effective vote stealing squad in MA simply because they’ve never needed one there before.

Once they saw that they were slipping it was too late to get their game going.
