I believe in the free speech that liberals used to believe in, the economic freedom that conservatives used to believe in, and the personal freedom that America used to believe in.

Now, It’s Officially Senator Scott Brown (R., Mass)

Massachusetts has a Republican Senator for the first time since Jimmy Carter was President:

The Senate’s 41st Republican was sworn into office Thursday, a few minutes after 5 p.m.

Standing on the Senate floor, Scott Brown, the upstart Massachusetts Republican who won the right to succeed the late Sen. Edward Kennedy, took the oath of office while holding two Bibles owned by his daughters. They couldn’t make it to the ceremony but “were both with me in spirit,” he said.

“Congratulations,” said Vice President Joe Biden, who administered the oath and heartily shook the new senator’s hand. A short while later, Brown hurried to the third floor of the Capitol to convene his first official press conference, where he thanked the people of Massachusetts for sending him to Washington. “I can’t promise I’ll be right in every vote I make. I’m sure I’ll make mistakes from time to time. But I will try to give them my level best every day,” he said.

In a room packed with reporters, Brown plunged right into the middle of debate on Capitol Hill.

The filibuster is back.

Now things get interesting.

    Boston talk radio seems to think he’s the second coming, leading the armies of heaven against Babylon Obama the anti-christ.

    Lets hope he stays true to his campaign promises. We need his vote to save our country from the ravages of liberalism.

    There’s talk around Boston that Scott Brown won’t be the last. Apparently Patrick “Patches” Kennedy is up for re-election in Rhode Island (an hour or so south of Boston, for those unfamiliar with the area), and folks down there are P.O’d.
