The Wall Street Journal had an interesting article, "The message of Massachusetts" (here), published Jan.19, 2010, written on the day of the senate election, but prior to the results being known. The article did a great job focusing on Democrat's hard-left liberal committee chairmen who are "all creatures of the Great Society and what was called the New Left of the 1960s and 1970s. They have spent their lives in government and know almost nothing about the private sector or how to grow an economy. They view the Reagan era as an historical aberration, and they have stayed in Washington for decades precisely in wait of this moment to realize 40-years of pent-up policy ambition. They believe this is their 1965, or 1933."
Congrats to Scott Brown in Massachusetts - the Democrats and leftists will naturally downplay his win; but this is a herald of the drubbing the Democrats will surely and deservedly receive this November.
