Massachusetts Voted What?

posted in: public affairs | 0

There was a time when I expected this after every election: a deep feeling of depression.  But more recent events had lulled me into thinking that, at least once in a while, the majority of the electorate (at least in my area) would share a few of my political views. Oh, the naiveté! Once again I’ve learned my lesson.  Yesterday Massachusetts did the previously unthinkable—voted in Scott Brown, a conservative Republican, to fill the seat left by Ted Kennedy.  A man who thinks waterboarding is just one more okay form of torture, and who will…ah, never mind the details, I’m sure you’ve read them by now.

Well, if you can’t win, the next best thing is to laugh.  So, if you’d like a good laugh—and I’m pretty sure people of all parties can laugh at this one—take a look at Jon Stewart on The Daily Show.  If it doesn’t display correctly for you on this page, you can watch it here

    That is funny! I think right now anyone that's in office is experiencing backlash. Last november it was the Republicans thanks to the legacy of GWB that caught the ire of the voters. Now after a year of having the Democrats in charge and things are still a mess the focus of the "vote the bums out" movement is focusing on them.
