I’m not crazy! So there!!

Because sometimes I do feel crazy.
Living as an anti-statist in the bluest of blue states means having to assume that anyone I talk with has very different views than I do. Mind you, most people are polite about it, and the workplace isn’t a forum to really discuss politics anyway, but that’s just how it is: Statistically, I assume that anyone I talk with thinks I’m wrong. Or nutso.
Massachusetts is sending a Republican to the Senate.
I would have sworn that we would send a horse to the Senate before we’d send someone with the dreaded “R” after his name.
I’m not denying that this was, as Geraghty put it, a perfect storm situation. And while Scott Brown seems very likable and intelligent, he’s still a politician. Perhaps a better man than many — but he’s not the second coming of Christ, he’s a pol. I don’t know but that he’ll be replaced in two years, when Pres. Obama heads the ticket. (Here’s hoping he is wise about building up and maintaining the incredible support network he put together over these last few weeks!)
But for today, I’ll go around with a nice fuzzy glow. Enough MA voters liked Brown, or hated Coakley, to send a Republican to the Senate to finish out Ted Kennedy’s old term.
Suddenly — *sniff* — I don’t feel so alone!!
P.S. Not that I really felt alone — my blogroll is full of people from MA who don’t think I’m crazy.
They KNOW I am. :)
