Mom of Congress: The Massachusetts Senate Race

The Mom of Congress has been following the Massachusetts Senate race. Last night she watched Martha Coakley's concession speech and Scott Brown's acceptance speech on TV. Here are her conclusions:

Martha Coakley seems to be an attractive candidate and gave a gracious concession speech. Her loss was less about her personally, and more about disgust with Congress.

Scott Brown is clearly one of the best campaigners in either party that has come along in a long time. Mom of Congress could not help but note that his two lovely daughters are a lot like her two lovely daughters: one very tall brunette and one not-quite-so-tall blonde.

Mom of Congress predicts that Scott Brown will give the Republican response to the President's State of the Union Address. Betcha! He's a Senator to watch.

I heard that it was the independent vote that ushered him into the Senate seat. And the frustration over the resounding silence on the no-jobs issue from Capitol Hill.

I agree. He is someone to watch. This is an interesting wake-up call for the Dems. I hope they rise to the occasion and not respond with a rise of ire.

(heard a radio pundit say that Geitner woke up this morning with a rocket in his pants pointed to the sky and Obama would be lighting it today....hee hee)

I could be grumpy, but instead I'll go with PG: a wake-up call for the Dems.

Word verification: awfully close to Satan. Has Pat Robertson infiltrated your blog?

I have a Pat Robertson filter on the blog ;-)

I did not care for his remarks about the availability of his daughters.

Wonder if he will be running for President soon as another freshman Senator did recently.

Quotidian Grace said...

I hope not! He should finish a term and learn how Congress works. Some of our President's problem is that he spent the scant two years he served in the Senate running for his current office.

I wonder if a woman who had posed naked for a magazine centerfold would have been elected? There's a lot to ponder in the Mass. election.

It's hard to believe the voters of Massachusetts have such short memories. We're still recovering from the mess the republicans made.

Maybe its because the Mass. voters see the democratic Congress making an even bigger mess.
