Today’s the big day. Massachusetts voters are about to decide who will replace Ted Kennedy in the Senate, and Chris Van Hollen, chairman of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, is obviously another Democrat who either has a dramatic lack of knowledge in the field of political history or a tremendous flair for comedy:
â€œWhy would you hand the keys to the car back to the same guys whose policies drove the economy into the ditch and then walked away from the scene of the accident?â€ Van Hollen said. â€œFor the Republicans to say vote for us and bring back the guys who got us into this mess in the first place, I donâ€™t think itâ€™s a winner.â€
Hopefully I can stop laughing long enough to pay attention to the election results this afternoon. Will Coakley sink or swim? Will Brown be able to bridge the gap? We’ll find out soon.
