The liberal blogosphere has been abuzz recently with calls to mobilize people in Massachusetts to vote Democratic. If they don't, the Dems are going to lose their 60 seat majority, and then what?
Then, nothing, is my opinion. It feels to me like no majority, or super majority, or super super majority will ever help the Democrats do anything useful. They always have a reason to buckle under the tiniest amount of pressure from the Republicans. They've had their majority for a while, and what have we, the people, got out of it? Nothing much. Somehow, even if there is only one Republican left in the Senate, s/he will still achieve more than all the Dems combined. All their majority has helped them do is to line their pockets.
So I can't muster an appropriate degree of enthusiasm, or even curiosity, about the results of the election to win Ted Kennedy's seat. I think that this is how the voters feel, too. You can't let the voters down every single time and then expect them to care about your party. The Dems are now reaping the fruits of their indecisiveness and weakness. Serves them right.
