BREAKING NEWS: Coakley Concedes; Scott Brown is the [Republican!] Senator from Massachusetts
The Boston Globe reports that Democrat Martha Coakely has called Republican Scott Brown to concede the Massachusetts special election to fill the seat of the late Senator Edward "Ted" Kennedy. Brown becomes the first Republican to hold the seat for nearly a half century. More importantly, the Democratic filibuster-proof majority is broken!
Hugh Hewitt is referring to this election as the most unbelievable in his lifetime. Once pundit joked, "This puts in play every congressional seat in any state less liberal than Massachusetts." Mark Steyn predicts that this election puts the California Senate seat of Barbara Boxer in play. (Please God, let it be true.)
The Kosher Hedgehog is pleased to have contributed to the Scott Brown campaign. The Massachusetts electorate has truly delivered "the Scott heard 'round the world!"
