So let's break this down. A moderate Republican won a seat in Mass. Great. Good for him!
Now do you think he would have won that seat if it had been against against Kerry or a half-alive Ted Kennedy or any heavily entrenched incumbent Senator? Hell no. He would have gotten destroyed.
So the GOP picks up one (vacated) Senate seat in a special election in January. Again. Big whoop.
Until I see serious changes in the GOP and their style of governing I refuse to get excited about any of this bull****.
