    And accomplishes what? Besides stroking the anti-Obama crowd.

    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****.

    The comments from the left are hilarious. Expect mass suicides tonight.

    Not that the right didn't behave the same way in 2008.

    That, or we're going to repeat the damned cycle again. People are starting to get fed up with the government, especially over the economy. Most of us are hurting pretty bad, but those in charge don't seem to care. Whatever helps their buddies on Wallstreet and in the banking sector. That's not limited to just the democrats but I hope the GOP can understand the point that the People are sick of all the government and all the spending and getting nothing in return. We desperately need some real small government people in charge to tear things down. I really do hope we get it. I can vote for the GOP if they offer a true small government candidate.

    True but aint it great when the shoe is on the other foot?
    Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.

    Virginia, New Jersey now Mass. Dunno about style - it's not about style it's about substance. But you have a point --- let's see how they do. If it's just more Democrat policies under the name of "Republican", you're right, no change, no difference, why bother.

    All I do know is all three states are a loud shouting voice into the White House saying, "STOP! Listen to what we're saying!!" If they do not listen, more of tonight's results are on the horizon.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Go to any liberal site and read the comments. People are acting like their grandma just died.

    The GOP is now tall enough to touch the ground and put the brakes on the Flintmobile.
