Well, it’s all over. The fat lady sang the aria, Coakley-the-patsy conceded and Dems lost Teddy’s seat to a Repuglican. Huh.
It’s bound to be gnarl after rehashed gnarl over at GOS for days, but I’ve hung out in Boston. I know Massachusetts. They love them some Kennedys, even Caroline could’a won this hands-down, they (with Rahm still calling shots, don’t bet he’s not still got his tentacles everywhere) ran the weakest they could find. And lost, as they intended to do all along.
Now, don’t get me wrong. I LIKE my government divided. It’s just that after GWB, we were fairly desperate. So we gave them 2/3 in the House. 60 in the Senate. And the White House. After a year, we see how non-effective that was. So yeah. I’m back to my usual ‘House Divided’ screenplay, where they’re so crippled by their partisan bullshit that they accomplish nothing at all. Because sometimes it’s better to have nothing at all than anybody’s ridiculous partisan agenda.
Wow. Just wow, since it’s so absolutely mind-boggling they could have lost Kennedy’s seat. I know that nothing in politics happens by accident, and I’m highly suspicious of coincidence across the board. What does this mean for November???!
