If this is the law of the land...why in a republic (little r) and as republicans, do we allow mere POLITICIANS to the right to use a "title of office" for the rest of their lives as if it were de facto a patent of nobility. Because, as republicans, this should NOT be the case...just saying...

Scott Brown Outpolls Kerry & Obama in Massachusetts

Scott Brown is outpolling John Kerry and Barack Obama in blue/blue Massachusetts!  In a poll taken by the Boston Gobe (a minion of the NY Times), they discovered this rather shocking fact: 
After less than five months in Washington, Brown outpolls such Democratic stalwarts as President Obama and US Senator John F. Kerry in popularity, the poll indicates. He gets high marks not only from Republicans, but even a plurality of Democrats views him favorably.


The support for Brown, whose victory became a symbol of voter anger, is consistent with widespread sentiment that incumbents in Massachusetts and Washington “need to be replaced with a new crop of leaders.’’ That statement was supported by 50 percent of those polled, while 28 percent said they trust the incumbents.
If Massachusetts is turning against the Dem's...what's happening in the rest of the country?  But wait there's more...Democrats running for reelection have begun attending Tea Party events and actually took questions  from their opponents.  This is while Congressmen/women  have been ditching their constituents all over the country to avoid this very thing. 
For over a year the media has been painting tea party members as wild eyed extremists. Congressmen and women have avoided town hall meetings in fear of encountering them and now sitting democratic members of the General Court attend events.
