    Shame on the people of Massachusetts for not giving Teddy Kennedy’s representative candidate a victory. With the decades of selfless service and all the good things that Teddy Kennedy did for the state and the country the people of Massachusetts owed him at least this much respect. Shame on them!

    The real winners: Alaskans because now they aren't the county's biggest laughing stock.

    The real losers: US.

    The lesson: Appeal to pigheaded spite = Win.

    Thanks MA for setting a new standard in stupidity.

    Once again, the uninformed masses have spoken!

    There needs to be an intelligence test given to anyone who wants to vote. These results simply show that the general public is just lashing out instead of THINKING!

    I just hope this guy makes decisions on what's best for this country and not soley for the GOP. At the end of the day, this country needs Healthcare reform. May he come with an open mind. I hope he doesn't become the bore that McConnell is or the the snippy lil' person that Boehner is. His good looks are a start but it'll take a whole lot more before I go back to voting Republican.

    Massachusetts, the new Texas. Ted is rolling in his grave. What a sad day for a country that has been brainwashed by multinationals, and sold its soul for immediate gratification.. Good luck, fellow slaves. I don't vote for democrats, but I would chew off my own fingers before I voted for a republican. I voted for Nader, last time. Want to argue about who wasted their vote?

    The tide is changing. For the record, a vote against this bill is not a vote for status quo.

    We need affordable healthcare for all Americans, but this bill stinks!

    Finally some balance and common sense....now can we get some bipartisan effort....something that is more moderate than the extreme liberal approach of Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid.

    As far as I'm concerned, good. I think a message was heard loud and clear, no excuses, failure is not an option.

    I think Dems in general gotta take this seriously, they have to. A big upset just occurred and Sen Brown won by a nice margin. You know is serious when the turnout itself exceeds over 2 million people, now that's something.

    And yes, the Prez has to take this seriously as well, he has to. He has to wake up and finally realize what's going on. It kind of reminds me when my Bulls lost the game against the Kings and were up by 30+ points and lost it at the end. What the heck happen?

    Hopefully they figure it out cause the people ain't playing around no more. It sends the message loud and clear...better listen up.

    Goodnight and enjoy.

    TRAGIC ERROR. If as a result of this result the Health Care Bill is derailed, that 52 percent of Massachesetts voters and those who did not turn out to vote for the DEM will carry the responsibilty on their consciences forever. You are so deprived and so foolish for not having an excellent health care system like that of Canada, Britain, France and almost all Western European countries. Take this from me who have just had my mother-in-law taken care of for the last six months of her life before she died of cancer and, moreover, have seen how excellently my spouse, with terminal cancer, has been treated since 2005 and continues to be. My heart pains for the USA.

  21. Democrats are hosing America

    THANK GOD!!!! The most liberal state in the union has finally seen through the facade that is liberalism/socialism/Obama.

    Thank you God for showing voters the light of day concerning how Obama is destroying America with his liberal/socialist agenda.

    Liberalism is built on lies – why else do Pelosi and Biden have to hold closed-door meetings away from the press? If the healthcare package is so great, why are Louisiana and Nebraska (among other states) asking for – and getting – EXEMPTIONS from having to participate??

    Thank you, voters for seeing through the Obama administration's agenda for 'changing' America. God bless you!!

    I now know that there our country does have more thinkers, than followers. I thank the Lord for the outcome of the Mass. election. We can have hope that the socialist agenda in Washington will be stopped. God bless America and thanks to all the voters in Mass. for using wisdom to vote!!

    America should have realized the danger by putting the left wing liberals in full control before this.

  24. seadragonconquerer

    I applaud conservative Scott Brown victory in Taxachusetts. Still, given all the crooked pork-barrel chicanery the Democrats used to get their dog of a health care bill through the Senate, I don't doubt they'll do more of the same to inflict it on us anyway. Hope I'm wrong.

    A man fights all his political life for universal health care, and JUST as it’s about to become a reality, he dies and his vote is taken over by ONE man who can stop it. Now that’s what you call “ironic.”
