Brown Wins, But Don't Get Cocky

Look, I am as exuberant as the next conservative out there and I do enjoy this kind of challenge from Moe Lane: T
his message goes out to every vulnerable Democratic Congressman representing a Republican or even centrist district – and after tonight, who among you is not vulnerable? It is a simple message: we can do this the easy way, or we can do it the hard way. The easy way is, you suddenly decide that you have a burning desire to spend more time with your families. So you don’t run for re-election, you walk off stage technically undefeated, and you go join a lobbying firm. The hard way is, you do run for re-election, and we pry you out of your seats.

We want to do this the hard way. We will enjoy doing it.

That’s your only warning. And remember: nobody is going to be able to save you. If the President, the DSCC, the DCCC, the DNC, the SEIU, ACORN, and the netroots couldn’t manage a win in Massachusetts… what do you think that they can do for you?

But as many people are likely to point out, this is not the time to get cocky. Sure we can spend a day gloating (after all, a Republican won a Senate Seat in Massachusetts for pete's sake), but tomorrow is back to work to move forward and get the country's fiscal health revived.
