Well, it is what it is. A squander of epic, nay, historic, proportions.
We can mourn. We can point fingers. We can waste a lot of time and energy with an extended Night of the Long Knives. I prefer a fairly quiet post-mortem, then to begin to plan for 2012, beginning tomorrow.
Scott Brown knows there’s a target on his back. The teabaggers and GOP will begin in the morning to plan how to the keep the seat. We have to stay calm, unite behind one candidate who can connect with people, is not afraid to take the heat and viciousness and show strength and smarts in return, and plan to take it back.
Might I suggest… Mike Capuano?
