As usual, this is being badly oversimplified and misinterpreted by the media -- whose primary bias is in favor of lack of thought and nuance. Last year it was "Obama will be great!" and this year it's "What a failure!"

The MSM reports on this as if it's a national referendum, not an actual contest between two human beings from Massachusetts. Politics is local, and Coakley was a train wreck. Hell, I might've voted against her. Truly unpleasant-seeming.

Yet I'm supposed to believe that this was anti-Obama?

Funny thing: Rasmussen puts Obama's support at 55% among not just registered, but yesterday's MA voters! And a GOP pollster showed only 38% of voters yesterday were voting for Brown because of dissatisfaction with Obama.

It's truly scary how little detail goes into the news.

Also amusing: Unless he does a 180 from his voting record, Brown enters as one of the most liberal GOP Senators. Possibly left of Snowe, right of the right-most Dem, Ben Nelson.

Heck, he voted for (and continues to love) universal health care in MA! So this all ought to be interesting, to say the least.

Exactly! He was elected specifically because he promised to be obstructionist. The people DO NOT WANT what the liberals in Congress are trying to ram down our throats. I think Brown's election sent that message. Unsurprisingly it was lost on the intellectual geniuses at DE Liberal.

Maybe the residents of Massachusetts have a mass Stockholm's Syndrome. After a half a century under the control of one individual maybe their captor finally left and the door was left ajar and they realized they were free and could leave.
