We Tried To Tell You, Barry!

Now that Martha Coakley has croaked the Obama's administration's ambitions, you are going to see the GOP crow triumphant, the Tea Baggers encouraged to run amok, an increased amount of activity as dissatisfied voters band together to seek options other than these two, and a business community that has no need to fear real regulation any longer.

In other words, Obamastein's Monster is on the loose.

There are many potential outcomes of this night's conclusion of the Obama Era. Some might well have proved beneficial for the nation if there were respect and civility in our politics. But I doubt that will be the result. The Tea Baggers are on the move, and taking over the GOP and warping it to reflect their views will prove to be ridiculously simple. Then it really gets ugly.

Once accomplished, they will run Sarah Palin, maybe teamed up with Michele Bachmann, as the faces of their party. But the likes of Dick Armey (who gives the name "dick" an odious connotation) and Newt Gingrich (who never failed to chase and catch a mass movement leadership position from well behind the crowd's starting position) will be the ones actually running things. The membership will be the ones tasked with recruiting and/or "stressing" the opposition's members.

And that will prove only to be the beginning of the end of this nation as we've known it.

Heck of a job, Barry. Just stick to your game plan of ignoring the past and looking only forward. It's not a bad strategy now that you blew your chances, for as the late, great Satchel Paige once declared, "don't look back—something might be gaining on you."

It will smell like strong tea.
