    Default Brown Wins Massachusetts

    Brown has won the Senate seat in Massachusetts.

    GOP's Brown wins Mass. Senate seat in epic upset - Yahoo! News

    FOXNews.com - Brown Beats Coakley in Massachusetts Senate Race

    Brown wins Massachusetts Senate race, CNN projects - CNN.com

    The national implications of this race *cough*Obamacare*cough* cannot be denied. It will be interesting to see if the democrats seat Brown as quickly as they have seated past demoractic winners...

    This may be a jerk in an otherwise opposed trend, and I can only hope it is. If not, then the USA has apparently chosen to fossilize before the eyes of the rest of the world, and possibly poisoning it in the process.

    I still think a health-care bill will pass Congress.


    As for Brown getting elected; 5 main reasons that I see:

    • Massachusetts already has significant health-care reform and even a health-care mandate. They already have have theirs, so it's not as important to them.
    • Coakley was a bad candidate.
    • Recession and high-unemployment. (although Massachusetts is doing significantly better than most states)
    • Lots of Republican money put in for Brown, especially during the last two months.
    • Historically, the year after a Democrat or Republican takes the Presidency, and depending on Congress, the party in charge faces a blowback about a year after getting elected, losing some amount of seats.

    It's a perpetuation of the trend. Brown is a statist, as is Coakley, as was Dead Kennedy...
