#rsrh The *hard* way.

I would like to revisit a post that I wrote on January 19th of this year, upon hearing the news that Scott Brown had won the Massachusetts Senate race:

This 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.

Well. I guess that we went with the hard way, then.   And, yup, it was as fun as I thought that it would be.

    Heh. I was wondering when you’d get around to posting an update to that comment. And yeah, it was pretty darned entertaining to watch on November 2.

    And it’ll be just as fun in the Senate for 2012, since Democrats will have to defend more than twice as many seats as Republicans will. Plus we’ll have wiped out some Dem gerrymanders in the House, making previously-safe Dems run for their lives for the first time in quite a while.
