Apres Ted le deluge

Former nude model and family values Republican Scott Brown just won Ted Kennedy's seat in the Senate. Even if we count Joe Lieberman as a Democrat, and I don't see why we should, this cuts the Democratic majority down to a "mere" fifty nine seats. My first instinct is to say, turn the lights off and send the Senate home; nothing more is going to be accomplished. But that's a much too optimistic way of viewing it. As long as we have Democrats like Blanche Lincoln and Ben Nelson in the Senate, the Republicans should be able to get a majority for anything they want.
