Via Lucianne, a look at how the Massachusetts loss harms the Obama mystique.
A final point: this must also mark the end of conservative defeatism. Obama is no longer a mystery, no longer an invulnerable figure, no longer the favorite of destiny.
He is the master of a party of thieves, loons, and hustlers. A party that has tossed away its mandate in less than a year's time, a party with no Plan B, with no ideas and no useful tradition, a party that feeds off fantasy, with nothing to serve it but the husk of an ideology dead for generations. They are easy targets, from Obama on down, and there is no excuse for holding back.
