I like that: Scott Brown and the Forlorn Hope. He definitely deserves the promotion for pulling it off!


Hear, hear. I think the Dems have, in essence, over-reached. They assumed that their victory - Obama's victory - was, in essence a great new mandate by the people to accomplish, as Martha might say, *Great Things*. But in fact, our country has been, and remains, essentially conservative and resistant to anything other than incremental change. And that means change to EITHER the left OR the right. (Beware, those who dream of a pre-FDR Republic). IF Republicans can find a leader who will work from today's commonly held values but will ALSO note the value and positive character of the PAST values of this country .... well, then we might displace the fine gentleman from Illinois from his perch in the White House.

Speaking as a Massachusettes resident, I have to say that this is the best - and sanest - overview of the senatorial election that I have yet read. Brown won because he was, hands down, the best candidate. It's as simple as that in my view. I like to think my neighbors were smart enough to vote for the person they wanted as their senator, and not as a protest over an issue or the broader political landscape (whatever that is). Meanwhile, Republicans should bear in mind that the most apt description I have heard of Brown is that he is "your grandfather's Democrat."

Old Dominion Tory

In a broad sense, American Fez, he's also my grandfather's, my father's, and, to an extent, my Republican.
