We Owe It All to the Massachusetts Legislature!

The American people owe a debt of thanks to the Massachusetts State Legislature.

Scott Brown was elected tonight because the overwhelmingly Democratic State Legislature scrapped gubernatorial appointment to fill vacant Senate seats and, over then-Governor Romney's veto, replaced it with a special election.

They did it so Republican Romney couldn't appoint a GOP Senator if Edward Kennedy died.

If they hadn't rigged the rules to their own advantage, Democratic Gov. Duval Patrick would have appointed Kennedy's replacement, and Massachusetts would still have a Democratic senator.
