    GOP's Brown wins Mass. Senate seat in epic upset

    BOSTON – In an epic upset in liberal Massachusetts, Republican Scott Brown rode a wave of voter anger to defeat Democrat Martha Coakley in a U.S. Senate election Tuesday that left President Barack Obama's health care overhaul in doubt and marred the end of his first year in office.
    The loss by the once-favored Coakley for the seat that the late Sen. Edward M. Kennedy held for nearly half a century signaled big political problems for the president's party this fall when House, Senate and gubernatorial candidates are on the ballot nationwide.
    More immediately, Brown will become the 41st Republican in the 100-member Senate, which could allow the GOP to block the president's health care legislation and the rest of Obama's agenda. Democrats needed Coakley to win for a 60th vote to thwart Republican filibusters

    HELL'S YEAH.

    All you that will try to claim this wasn't about Healthcare... HELLO!!! The late "great" Edward Kennedy's former seat is now the one that will STOP Obamacare in it's tracks.

    Don't fool yourselves, the Dem's have over reached, and Obama's personal appeal cannot cover the stench that is his ideas!

    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    I'm still wondering who the guy is or rather his platform. His website seems a bit overloaded right now. But no matter I think the stock market will go up tomorrow and I will be selling.

    I'm pretty sure that's his daughter.

    This is really isn't that shocking, considering how terrible a campaign Coakley ran. When you confuse a Red Sock for a Yankee, there is always hell to pay.

    Too bad the self admitted war criminal John Kerry wasn't facing similar defeat side by side with Coakley....Oh well,I guess seeing his reaction to this upset will be good enough
