Gail Collins wonders what sort of change Scott Brown has in mind...
Gradually, we are reaching a consensus that Coakley lost because the irritable voters wanted to send a message. Which was: change.
Change all over the place! Except apparently not in beating up the bankers, since the Democrat favored a tax on big banks to pay for the bailout and the Republican opposed it.
And not change that involves getting out of Afghanistan. That was Coakley’s idea. Brown wants to stay the course.
Stay the course, for sure. But stop spending so much money on the course. Cut the budget! Except when it comes to the troops, who need all the support we can give them. As Scott Brown kept pointing out.
Scott Brown has a truck. Maybe there could be more trucks.
