I can't drive 59?

With apologies to Sammy Hagar.



Scott Brown is Massachusetts' next senator, and I don't think that's as cataclysmic as most Dems appear to. If Reid can't do anything with 59 seats, I don't see why we should even bother. But the key is that he can do plenty, and he needs to start acting like it. Letting other put words in your mouth and assign negative connotations to what is undoubtedly progress is no way to operate when you're the Majority Leader. I do recognize that Obama had a rough first year, and needs to step up also, but I don't think most presidents have good first years; now that we enter Year Two, it's time to abandon this bipartisan ideal and actually get some work done. I've always been an advocate of just pushing through when you have the opportunity, but then again I don't have to balance the competing priorities that the president does, so it's easy for me to talk.

I do feel badly for Massachusetts, though, that after having a great succession of bright senators that are bears for work that they're getting The Bush (link NSFW; seriously, trim that ish if you're gonna show it) who spouts lines. At least he's up for reelection in 2 years.

Did anyone else find it interesting that the clinching demographic Brown won was...wait for it... independent 30-40 something female voters? Maybe that shoot had something to do with it?
