Last night our phone rang. It was a friend of ours and all she said after we answered the phone was "Woo hoo." That's all she needed to say, because we knew exactly what she meant. She was referring to the outcome of yesterday's special election in Massachusetts, in which the long-shot underdog republican, Scott Brown, beat out the favored democrat, Martha Coakley, by a margin of 53% to 46%. The last time Massachusetts sent a republican to Congress was in the 1970's. Last week Brown was down in the polls by double digits, but by casting the majority vote in favor of Brown, the people of Massachusetts have spoken for the rest of the country. The message to the government is clear: stop cramming your very flawed healthcare bill down our throats, stop spending our money and putting this country at risk of being enslaved by other countries, and stop pushing your progressive/socialist agenda on the American people. We'll fire even more incumbents in November--we're just getting started.
