"Massachusetts tonight proved that Sen. Scott Brown’s victory in January was more fluke than the leading edge of a trend. As of now, it looks like a clean sweep for incumbents in Congress and an all-Democratic night for candidates for constitutional office (Suzanne Bump leads Mary Z. Connaughton, of this writing).
Rep. Jeff Perry’s loss proves that Character trumps Ideology, as voters in the 10th district chose to believe the victim of a strip search rather than Perry’s account. Brown is going to have to relive his deep and abiding support for Perry in Brown’s re-election in 2012."
"Two months ago, they predicted a landslide, a tidal wave. They predicted we would lose BOTH houses. The Senate will remain with the Dems, and the House will have a small GOP majority. The extent to which the GOP pickups were minimized constitute a victory, progressives."--ED Schultz
And lastly, come January 2011, the new Speaker of the House:
"As for you, John Boehner: jobs jobs jobs jobs jobs. If you and your corporate buddies don’t produce jobs jobs jobs jobs jobs by 2012, it's gonna be one helluva short honeymoon. And we'll remember that you told your right-wing fringe last night that "I'll never let you down."
As Lawrence O'Donnell responded, in the understatement of the evening: "Oh...yes...you...will."--h/t the dailykos
