The latest Business Week offers an interesting description of the Massachusetts Senate election result.

Writers Rich Miller and Mike Dorning discuss the Obama administration?s work to balance boosting the economy and controlling the federal budget deficit:

That job got a whole lot harder with Republican Scott Brown’s surprise victory in the recent Massachusetts special election, robbing Obama’s Democrats of their super-majority in the Senate and threatening the President’s health-care overhaul push.

While election results can be closely linked to robbery (think the Hayes-Tilden presidential race, Kennedy?s dubious win over Nixon in 1960, or almost any tight race in Columbus County), Brown?s win didn?t rob anybody of anything.

This is just another example of media types who don?t get it.
