I am gobsmacked by Republican Scott Brown's victory Tuesday in Massachusetts. Euphoric, optimistic and completely jazzed.
There's hope and change for you!
I am not the only one. Maybe a hundred local conservatives gathered at the Coliseum Bar Tuesday night smiling, backslapping, and cheering the big-screen Fox Network cablecast. Multiply that a millionfold in taverns and homes across this great and generous nation.
A Republican who made opposition to Obamacare his central issue took the U.S. Senate seat held since 1962 by the patron saint of nationalized health care. "Ted Kennedy's seat!" A seat that had been in the Kennedy family since 1953. Or, as Scott Brown himself famously declared -- the people's seat. Ted Kennedy, the man who anointed Barack Obama with the magic words, "the dream lives on."
