Lessons learned from Brown’s victory

Opinion | Robert Laurie

I’ll admit it. On the night of the Massachusetts election, I watched MSNBC. I did so mostly because I wanted to see the anguished look of panic and desperation spread across Keith Olbermann’s face. I wasn’t disappointed. Olbermann spent the evening flailing desperately at explanations, like a drowning paraplegic trying to reach a life preserver, before settling on the notion that it all had to be Coakley’s fault. Once that was settled, he and Sen. Debbie Stabenow (D-Mich.) spent a good 20 minutes educating their audience about how Brown’s victory was actually going to be bad for Republicans. “The party of no,” they said, would finally be exposed as the obstructionist imbeciles that they are. I learned two things from this. First, listening to Stabenow is about as exciting as watching an apple turn brown. Second, die-hard, far-left Democrats are willfully refusing to learn from their loss, so Republicans had better.
