I want more proof than just someone crying foul before I draw any conclusions. Desperation is a stinky perfume.

I'm predicting a Brown victory (CNN just called it) followed by a lengthy court battle that Brown will also win, and it being ugly enough to backfire on Democrats when they jam through the senate version of the health bill which is more moderate than the house, but still pretty unpopular.

I heard turnout in Boston was terrible, does that mean western MA is actually politically important now? Total game changer, for the better IMO. I don't like the idea of swapping one radical party dominance for another. I'm glad that as an unenrolled, independent voter from western MA my vote has not been taken for granted. Scott Brown had better realize that independents are why he's been elected or he will have a short term.

Oh please...
 
NJ, Virginia and now Mass...
 
Must be LOTS of bad candidates running for office all of a sudden.
 
No way this could be "the people" trying to take back their government that has gone WAY to the left in the past year.
 
 
mass, 3 democrats for every 1 republican...
 
At least think for yourself instead of following in lockstep with the spin being put out by the whitehouse.

From a 20pt lead where she was called the 'perfect' candidate for Kennedy's seat, to losing in two weeks just shows that the Dem's are throwing her under the bus in Wednesday morning quarterbacking.

The primary reason she lost was the 'royalist' attitude of the government in not listening to the people and claiming ony they know how to run the government.

Wake up call for Dems everywhere, listen to the people start going moderate and save your own job, while trying to return jobs to America and lower taxes to let bussiness thrive.

KEY WORD- Compromise, do not dictate from behind closed doors and then claim you have an open and transparrent administration.


And talking about 'bad jokes' please explain Al Franken for us. And yes if Rush or Glenn said anything like Obermann about a Dem the cry would be for thier head on a platter.

Really slacker... That is the best you have?...
 
How about this little article that is the top article on MSNBC.
 
 
"For weeks considered a long shot, the 50-year-old Brown seized on voter discontent to overtake Coakley in the campaign's final stretch. His candidacy energized Republicans, including backers of the "tea party" protest movement, while attracting disappointed Democrats and independents uneasy with where they felt the nation was heading.

"I voted for Obama because I wanted change," said John Triolo, 38, a registered independent who voted in Fitchburg. "I thought he'd bring it to us, but I just don't like the direction that he's heading."

Even before the first results were announced, administration officials were privately accusing Coakley of a poorly run campaign and playing down the notion that Obama or a toxic political landscape had much to do with the outcome.

Coakley's supporters, in turn, blamed that very environment, saying her lead dropped significantly after the Senate passed health care reform shortly before Christmas and after the attempted Christmas Day airliner bombing, which Obama himself said showed a failure of his administration."

 
So, I was pointing out that whales post was lockstep with the spin the administration is using to try and say that the people love obama's policies. When that is clearly not the case in my mind.
 
This is Mass... after all...

No way this is just the documented trend of the opposition party being elected after a presidential election, a trend that has been around for quite a while now.

Nah, your theory is more likely. Wink

Ahh, the joys of liberal education...
 
Here whale, read this article when you get a minute. Try to read it with an open mind.
 
 
 
If you truly want to be a journalist in the future, you need to recognize the danger of being too similar to the current crop of journalists that are viewed in a particular way by typical Americans. To have views that so clearly match theirs puts your input in danger of being deemed typical to the people that will be hiring in the future. (you know, the ones that have a business plan that actually tries to get more readers instead of just rehashing the typical liberal dialog).  As they will be the ones hiring...
 
MSM has destroyed their reputation, and the general public has caught on.
 
 
According to polls, the country is centrist. Not left or right. All too often your views come across as far left.
 
Which is a dangerous position for someone with journalism aspirations in the current news climate.

I can't speak for the NJ or Mass elections, but I can speak for the VA elections and I can tell you that the Republican wins in this state had more to do with the fact that the Dems couldn't field any candidates worth looking at, let alone voting for. Criegh Deeds was a joke, and from what I gather, the dem candidate in Mass wasn't much to look at either.

I also expect that voter apathy has a lot to do with this. Presidential elections tend to mobilize much larger groups of under and un-educated for polling. They tend to see the president as "all powerful" and don't realize how important local elections are to their everyday lives. The same goes for both parties btw.
