brown wins

Congratulations to Senator-elect Brown.  Nice win in one of the bluest of blue states in the nation.  Who would have thought that Massachusetts of all states would possibly save us from ObamaCare?  Amazing.

With that said,  this is another case of a generally unappealing Democratic candidate, who demonstrated how out of touch she was with the people she was seeking to represent, and lost as a result of that.  This election does suggest a growing distrust of the Democrats and the Washington agenda.  That’s an encouraging sign going into the next election.  But can Republicans take advantage of this opportunity?
