Scott Brown Wins Race for Senate

Last night voters in Massachusetts told Barack Obama where to shove his health care plan by electing Republican Scott Brown to the Senate.  The media is acting like this is a big deal and a huge upset.  I don't know why though - any one with an ounce of common sense knows that if politicians don't represent the way the voters want them to then they are going to get replaced.

Voters are sick of the Democrats disregard for their opinions.  People don't send politicians to Washington to have them ram some mangled piece of legislative excrement down their throats - they send them to Washington to represent them.

The country is finally waking up to the shortcomings of the so-called "Party of Change" that they are starting to take action and do something about it.  If the Democrats don't wake up to reality, and it is a very good chance that they won't, then come November we are going to see a major shift into the right at almost all levels of government.

However, we are not out of the woods yet.  There are still several methods that Democrats can use to continue to undermine the American people on the health care bill.  First, Nancy Pelosi could reverse her position and accept the Senate bill as is.  Second, the Democrats could keep demanding re-counts until they win.  Third, the Democrats could stall the seating of Scott Brown until after the health care bill is passed.

However, I think even the Democrats would realize how much of political suicide either three of those options would be.
