**UPDATE** Coakley concedes. Brown wins in Massachusetts.
Or as my husband says: Massa-two-shits. Or we could refer to the citizens of that state as their New England neighbors do, and call them: "Mass-holes".
I am not overly fond of the state myself. Boston is a fun place to visit, but I wouldn't want to live there. I have visited several times, and I have relatives there - so I know what I'm talking about!
The big election for 'Ted Kennedy's seat' is today. I am keeping a close eye on it between washing curtains and being stuck in Farmville harvesting my virtual crops. As Brown would point out, it's NOT Ted Kennedy's seat - it's the people of Massachusetts seat. The Dems believe it is their birthright to own the seat though - so the result of this election will be a very interesting one.
Brown has been called a 'right wing teabagger' by some of our more vocal (and more far left) representatives in Congress. From what I can see, he is a solid fiscal conservative and moderate social conservative. Just like me! If he is propelled to the halls of Congress by the voters of MA, then what does that mean?
I believe it means that the so-called (and vulgarly so!) teabaggers are a force to be reckoned with. I am a member of the tea bag movement - - sick of gimongous federal government with their high taxes and intrusions into my life. It will signal a change - a MAJOR change - in American politics that will be felt over the next few election cycles.
Will the Dems in Congress (and the White House) get it? I think they already get it. They are willing to ram this Obamacare down our throats, using unconstitutional means to do so, before they are swept away like the cockroaches that they are. They want to do as much damage as they can before their imaginary scepter is wrested from them by the righteously angry American voters.
Plus - is Brown Mr. Hottie, or what??!Cross posted at A Tangled Web.
