Black Tuesday?

“If you are looking for an analogy for a Republican victory in Massachusetts, the best one for Democrats may well be the stock market crash of 1929. … [Y]ou could have Democrats jumping out windows and off roofs.” –Roll Call’s Stu Rothenberg


“It’s that rare election where voters know exactly what they’re voting on. If they’re with Democrat Martha Coakley they get health care reform. If they go for Republican Scott Brown it’s deliberate, premeditated murder for health care!” –MSNBC’s Chris Matthews


“I wanted to apologize for calling Senator-elect Scott Brown an ‘irresponsible, homophobic, racist, reactionary, ex-nude model, tea bagging, supporter of violence against women and against politicians with whom he disagrees.’ I’m sorry, I left out the word ‘sexist.'” –MSNBC’s Keith Olbermann


“[I]’s just going to get a lot uglier in Washington.” –CBS News political analyst John Dickerson

Blame game:

“[W]hile Coakley is a solid Democrat, she had never really worked directly with Kennedy on anything, according to a former Kennedy aide, so she didn’t have the appellation of ‘a Kennedy person,’ which would have opened the door to a lot more resources earlier in the race.” –Newsweek’s Eleanor Clift with a strange explanation on Tuesday’s election

Cheat to win:

“I tell you what, if I lived in Massachusetts, I’d try to vote 10 times. I don’t know if they’d let me or not, but I’d try to. Yeah, that’s right, I’d cheat to keep these bastards out. I would. ‘Cause that’s exactly what they are.” –MSNBC’s radio talk-show host Ed Schultz

Time to worry:

“You have top Democrats like Barney Frank of Massachusetts who said flatly if Martha Coakley, the Democrat, loses, health care is dead. So what kind of planning is the White House doing right now for backup? What’s their Plan B?” –ABC’s George Stephanopoulos

Nothing tragic about that:

“[It would be] a tragedy of Greek proportions if Ted Kennedy’s successor … is the one who was responsible for the death of health care.” –PBS’s Judy Woodruff

Blame Bush more:

“The stimulus was too small; policy toward the banks wasn’t tough enough; and Mr. Obama didn’t do what Ronald Reagan, who also faced a poor economy early in his administration, did — namely, shelter himself from criticism with a narrative that placed the blame on previous administrations.” –New York Times columnist Paul Krugman
