While I am glad that a Republican won on MA, it is telling that he didn't run on the party platform, and he got next to no help from the national party. Scott Brown didn't win as a Republican, or as a Conservative. He won as the candidate who wanted to wake up the jerkasses in both parties to listen to the needs of the people. Our elective representitves are sent to do a job, not to engage in middle school insult contests. Scott Brown is not the candidate of business as usual, he seems to be the candidate of "Pay attention when we are talking to you" He owes the Republicans few favors. He is a minority party candidate and he needs to demonstrate he understands what got him where he is.
