I think Scott Brown did us "libs" a favor.
1. Beware of what you wish for. We don't "own" the gov't anymore. 60 isn't the magic number; 41 is. If nothing happens, it'll be because the GOP has stopped it all. Remember what happened to Newt when he tried that sh!t in 1995-6?
2. Now that we Dems don't have the "magic 60," we don't need to deal with scum like Joe Lieberman and Ben Nelson, who extorted bribes to cast party votes. They don't get us over the threshold anymore, so they can pound sand. And, if no Republicans (or "Scott Brown Republicans"
) come along, see (1).
3. You guys want Congressional negotiations on C-span? You're gonna get 'em now. Then see (1).
4. We've got all year to digest the coffee and watch you tea-baggers and bible-thumpers and country-clubbers form a circle and start shooting at each other, as you realize that you're even less unified than the Dems and then primary the sh!t out of each other trying to get on the big bandwagon.
This'll be rich.
