Democrat Elizabeth Warren in Massachusetts

CNN on the Massachusetts race:

In a key pick-up of a Republican Senate seat, Massachusetts Democrat Elizabeth Warren defeated GOP Sen. Scott Brown Tuesday, according to a CNN projection. With 37 percent of the estimated vote counted, Warren led Brown 52 percent to 48 percent.

The victory is critical to Democratic ambitions to maintain their majority control of the Senate.

Update: Tammy Baldwin will be the nation’s first openly gay senator.

The House is about to become the most reviled obstructionist institution, causing it to fold like a cheap suit and give Obama free rein with his agenda.

Cindy, you’re absolutely right.

We. Are. So. F*cked.

Can still remember McConnell and others predicting Republicans taking the Senate.

Democrats hold in WI, PA and FL. Make gains in MA and IN.

Forget Christie, Akin and Mourdock are the real GOP idiots. Both of them fed into the already-existing Obama narrative of a War on Women. Both of them face-planted on a no-brainer issue like rape. Both of them turned GOP slam dunk wins into a democratic hold and a democratic gain. Both of them should disappear forever after today.

Ok, not too surprising, but Fox calls Missouri senate for McCaskill.

AUINSC on November 6, 2012 at 10:12 PM

No, Driver, the idiots are the voters in IN and MO who could possibly vote for the weak (IN) and reviled (MO) alternatives. Who cares about their comments on a social issue? The voters there are THAT stupid, to not realize what the stakes are?

WTF? You vote for Mitt and also to keep the completely insane, disastrous, discredited Senate in the hands of those who have ruined it?

Let’s see – maybe it’s somehow comforting that two states not known for their idiocy, but rather for their general sensible behavior, will play key roles in ruining the nation. The states known for their drooling idiocy, racism, ignorance, arrogance, and love of fascism (such as CA, where I live) won’t shoulder the entire burden ….

Hoosiers are notorious ticket-splitters. I know plenty who haven’t voted for a Democrat for president in 20 years, yet who vote reliably Democratic on the rest of the ticket.

Some of it is also this mentality: “Let’s see. I’m opposed to high taxes, military cuts, gay marriage, affirmative action, abortion, gun control laws, and gummint-run health care, but I’m a Workin’ Man, so I guess I better vote for the Democrat.”

Don’t bank on it. If they were so ‘reviled’, why were they re-elected?

Come to think of it, why did they re-elect the loser in the White House.
