Wow! The Yankees get it right Blue No More!

I'm not talking baseball. I'm talking politics. It appears that the electorate in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts have decided to elect a Republican to the United States Senate. It appears they are tired of being blue!

On the eve of President Obama's first anniversary in the White House it appears that his party and that of Senator Harry Reid and Representative Nancy Pelosi are receiving a set back. They are seeing red! Not since 1972 have the residents of Massachusetts sent a Republican to the United States Senate.

Not claiming that the Red folks have it right. It just makes the blue folks stop the back room deals. This makes Mr. Nelson's deal in Nebraska a mute point.

Quoting someone last January, " the ground is shifting beneath the stale political arguments that have consumed us for so long," well, at least the last year.

I do applaud the work in concept to make change. I just don't agree with the reduced access, the gaming of the answers, and the deals to shut out those with different opinions.

My thanks to the citizens of Massachusetts. Maybe there is something to the Red Sox after all. My thanks because We the People have remained faithful to the ideals of our forebears, and true to our founding documents.

There maybe something to the Massachusetts Miracle.
