In assessing the Massachusetts Senate race, the New York Times‘ Adam Nagourney reported that “Democrats across the country are starting to wonder aloud if they misjudged the electorate over the last year.” But not the ever-sure Mr. Axelrod, whose response to the Brown victory is to push forward with the ObamaCare bill: “I think that it would a terrible mistake to walk away now. If we don’t pass the bill, all we have is the stigma of a caricature that was put on it.” Apparently Axe thinks we are assuaged because: “The president is a thoughtful guy and he’s reflecting on what happened and thinking through what lessons there are there and how to move forward.”
Wicked Great Election
By Asher Embry
The “astroturf” is blooming up by Massachusetts bay.
At snowy polls, we “evil-mongers” finally got our say.
Our “manufactured” Brown support did sound the clarion call
And showed that “angry mobs” weren’t just “teabagging” after all.
Yet still Barack, Pelosi, Reid will try to pass their Bill.
It doesn’t seem to matter that it’s not the people’s will.
How much more clearly could we speak? On what does “O” reflect?
Ten months from now we’ll make it clear who we won’t re-elect.
