I’d like to thank all of those who voted for Scott Brown. You’ve done the courageous thing by making sure the rest of the country cannot have a health care system roughly equivalent to the one you already enjoy in Massachusetts.
Most people—ordinary people—would not allow themselves to simply ignore the monumental shamefulness of that. They would consider carefully the national and international consequences of giving a Republican the 41st seat in the Senate. They would not allow a poorly ran campaign, or some bullshit about a sports team to get in the way of making the moral choice. Hell, I voted for Obama—south-sider and Sox fan that he is—for that very reason…
Fortunately, neither I nor most other people, live in Massachusetts.
I believe that Joseph Goebbels once said that the SS personnel in the concentration camps were the epitome of strength: they were so strong that they could keep their consciences and the wrongness of their actions from getting in the way of actually killing the Jews. It’s good to know that essential spirit is alive and well, particularly in the supposed bastion of coastal liberalism.
