It's finally sunk in: Massachusetts will have an all Democratic delegation again.
Despite Koch money and every single Republican with a national profile being behind Brown.

Despite Congressional Rep. Tierney's puzzling unawareness of his wife's illegal activities.

Democrats not only hung on to the Senate, but gained seats.

They did not take back the House, but they gained seats.

America rejected the "successful businessman" and re-elected the community organizer.

I know I posted all of that the day after the election, but I had been up all night. It had not really sunk in.

Since the election, Harry Reid and other national Democrats have been sounding pretty feisty, too.

They've been saying Old Age, Survivors and Disability Insurance is not going to be touched, the rich will be taxed more, even if that means "going over the cliff."

Forward? Hope not. Backward, but not to W (I hope).

1. These mega-contributers (buyers of government)
will not take this lying down. There will be repercussions.

2. Sadly, yes. Another thread I started this morning talks about how the corporatists are
gearing up over the financial cliff and tax code "reform."

"Reform" used to mean a good thing, clearing out the corruption, etc. Now, it means the 99% are about to get hit.

Again.

Angus King said he would Caucus with the Dems.

7. Indeed. It took me a while, but I finally got it.
Meanwhile, Brown says he has two objectives now.

One is to make sure there is a smooth transition between his office and Senator Elect Warren. (I hope she and her staff are very, bery careful about that!)


The second is to find out what happened re: Benghazi.

Brown turd to the very end.
