The Brown Miracle

leave a comment »

Miracle.  That’s the best word to describe the underdog win that Scott Brown pulled off tonight in Massachusetts.  As I write, he is giving his victory speech.

In December, as the thugs in the Senate rammed the healthcare deform bill through, it looked as though all was lost.  Now, there is hope that it will be stopped.  It isn’t assured, as Pelosi will no doubt work overtime to ram something through.  But if she can’t hold her caucus together, it’s going to be tough for the current bills to get passed.  If these horrible, dangerous proposals are truly killed because of Brown, that will erase any doubt that his election–for the seat held for decades by government healthcare takeover champion Ted Kennedy–was truly a miracle.

“Kill the bill”… it’s no longer a faded rallying cry from the heady days of Tea Parties.  Now it just might happen.
