In a seemingly bizarre race in which a colossal 68 million dollars was spent, NBC has just announced that smart professor lady, Elizabeth Warren, has defeated incumbent Senator and Koch sucker number one, Scott Brown, in the very blue state of Massachusetts. The news of Senator-elect Warren defeating Scott Brown is not just good news for living Kennedys (Scott Brown took the seat held for 40 plus years by the late liberal lion, Ted Kennedy), but for those who believe in consumer protection, basic economic fairness, marriage equality, and medical marijuana. Indeed, the woman who was once called a “socialist whore” by the ever-so reasonable tea party has recaptured the seat that was firmly in the hands of the progressive wing (well, more like nook these days). Scott Brown will now have a very lucrative career in being a stand-in for David Hasselhoff and doing Aqua Velva Aftershave ads.
