- It's All About Expectations Michelle Malkin suggests ebullient optimism was the root of conservative disappointment with Brown: "Hopes definitely were high after Brown’s win, but optimism ebbs and flows. He’s one more Republican in the Senate, and that’s good enough for now. So gloat on, libs. I truly, sincerely, seriously hope November 2010 elections will be a blood bath."
- Give The Guy A Break Dan Riehl is stunned that anyone would think of Brown as a boon on the GOP, claiming that "only the media, Democrats (redundant, I know) and myopic conservatives would think Scott Brown's win is now a minus for Republicans, somehow. As if HCR wouldn't have passed if Dems held 60 seats." Riehl's throws in a tasteless sucker punch aimed at the Kennedy clan: "Hey, he's still doing better than Mary Jo, who sat in a 'Kennedy seat' on the last car ride of her life. If he can represent Mass and get re-elected as a Republican, people should have no bitch with having supported him."
- You're Listening To The Herald? Jim Hoft at Gateway Pundit seeks to undermine the Herald's journalistic integrity:
The Boston Herald claims that Republicans are blue because Senator Scott Brown was unable to prevent the democratic-socialists from ramming their toxic nationalized health care bill through the House of Representatives....This is what is called fantasy journalism… Unfortunately, this is common place in the state-run media these days. They will publish anything without any proof as long as it slams conservatives.
