"Republican's Win a Huge Blow for Obama"

From the Associated Depressed:

In an epic upset in liberal Massachusetts, Republican Scott Brown rode a wave of voter anger to win the U.S. Senate seat held by the late Edward M. Kennedy for nearly half a century, leaving President Barack Obama's health care overhaul in doubt and marring the end of his first year in office. [...]

The loss by the once-favored Democrat Martha Coakley in the Democratic stronghold was a stunning embarrassment for the White House after Obama rushed to Boston on Sunday to try to save the foundering candidate. Her defeat on Tuesday signaled big political problems for the president's party this fall when House, Senate and gubernatorial candidates are on the ballot nationwide.

Brown's victory was the third major loss for Democrats in statewide elections since Obama became president. Republicans won governors' seats in Virginia and New Jersey in November.

[And a conservative third party candidate in New York almost won against a Democrat who had the help of a liberal Republican. Still can't read the writing on the wall, progressives?]

I was watching Rachel Madcow and Olberdouche and it was Hil.A.Ri.ous! They both were blathering about how Brown is pro-waterboarding and the poor voters had no idea the evil they were voting for!!! Also, poor Madcow looked like she was in severe pain. Good times!

Yes, it was a beautiful thing to behold! Maddow looked like a whipped puppy and Olbermann had that crazy look in his eyes like he gets right before his weekly shock treatments!
