The Irony Of Today's Massachusetts Senate Election

How ironic that Ted Kennedy's death may bring, not a groundswell of pity and sympathy in the form of his cherished socialized health care plan, but, instead, his replacement by a young, vibrant conversative Republican whose first act will be to block Senate passage of said bill.

You truly cannot make something like this up, can you? Who'd have believed it? Everyone thought the Kennedy patsy appointed in his stead would robotically cast a vote for whatever unworkable, expensive health care "reform" bill was shoved under his nose.

Now, the drama will likely move from Scott Brown's election to the date of his seating in the Senate.

As I mentioned a few days ago, in this post, I did donate money to Brown's campaign. As did a colleague of mine, upon my suggestion. The national stakes in this particular election are sufficiently great to merit support to a Senator in another state.

Let's hope the people of Massachusetts get out and vote Scott Brown into office today. They'll be doing themselves and the entire nation a tremendous service by doing so.
