If Scott Brown wins today…
~It will mean the lie, deceits, and distortions coming out of the right wing has been absorbed and facts are illegal.
~Health care reform may be dead, but not if the House decides to do reconciliation. A good portion of the public wants an affordable public option with no preexisting conditions. Would be a good time to push it through (or push through single payer!).
~What will the republicans run on in the mid-terms this year if health care reform doesn’t pass?
~The Democrats will lose their filibuster majority, but this will mean we will get to see the republicans filibuster every issue and the American people will know where the obstruction in our government begins and ends once again.
~Joe Lieberman will lose his power.
~He will be the closest teabagger to President Barack Hussein Obama and the nation should be worried about this fact.
~Luckily he’s only in for 2 years. Sen. Ted Kennedy’s wife Vicky may run against him and she will win.
~This win will not mean the republicans are going to win every race from now to eternity!
Today’s race will be a nailbiter no matter which way it turns out! Seriously, this is what I love about politics. Races like this make it so much fun! Martha Coakley is a smart, intelligent, reserved woman who has worked very hard for the people of Massachusetts as their Attorney General. This is a high pressured job and watching her in recent days I can tell she takes whatever it is she’s handling with calm grace. Just because she’s not standing on the back of a truck yelling into a microphone lies about President Obama and protecting George Bush’s 8 years in office….doesn’t mean she is not the best candidate to represent the great people of Massachusetts! But, we will see what the people of Mass want. Maybe they do want a guy in the demure U.S. Senate who has posed nude for Cosmopolitan and who is represented by the right wing fringe of this country? Hey, could be. We’re going to find out!
