Lets face it, a few weeks ago Scott Brown’s chances of winning were about as high as my being invited to an orgy with Scarlett Johansson, Megan Fox, and Tiger Woods. But then again, politics makes for strange bedfellows.

A unremorseful truck owner auctioning off his daughter’s defeats a mealy-mouthed walking apology.  A cipher looses to a tea bagger. In other words, the quintessence of the democratic party and the republican party square off to decide who will be the heir to Ted Kennedy’s Senate seat and I – a both a resident of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts and of the Imperial Empire of The United States of America am supposed to be upset when Martha Coakley can’t go to Washington and deliver the big fat windfall for health care insurance companies masquerading health care reform?

This is what we’ve come to?

Try to digest this daily dose of irony folding back in on itself: insiders in the Republican Party are quietly disappointed that Brown won. Why? Because, according to the astute analysis laid out before the special election by former West Wing staffer Lawrence O’Donnell:

Scott Brown will destroy the Democrats’ plan to pass health care reform. But he will also destroy the Republicans’ not-so-secret plan to pass health care reform.

O’Donnell explains that while the Republicans tried to look obstructionist to the media and tea baggers and closet white supremacists everywhere, Republican leader Mitch McConnell entered a unanimous consent agreement with Harry Reid about how to proceed on the health care bill. meaning in essence, that it was going to make it impossible for Republicans to amend the bill and would put it on a fast track toward passage.

I repeat – the Republican put the bill on a fast track towards passage.

And why not? What we now call Obama care looks a helleva a lot like the plan we have in Massachusetts, instituted by a Republican Governor during a time when, you guessed it, Scott Brown was a State Senator. Mandating coverage is not a liberal idea; it is a boon to Wall Street portfolios brimming with health care insurance stocks.

The GOP’s plan, hatched at a time when Scott Brown was in fact the snowball and the reality you live in was in fact hell, was to pass the ObamaCare bill and then use “repeal it, repeal it!” as the rally cry for the 2010 midterm elections.

In other words, something was actually going to get done in Washington, but it was not what the Democrats wanted. Nor was it what the Republicans wanted; something was gong to get done in Washington, for once on a way, precisely because no one wanted it to happen.

When you people finally wake up and realize it is all a game, the even the very astute writer cited in this video,

Are you beginning to understand that you never win at 3 card Monty. And when the Ace of diamonds doesn’t come up, after you have studied the cards again and again just to plunk down your $100 and you lose, only to realize that everyone around you, the dealer, the high rollers, the winners, the losers, that the Lawrence O’Donnell I cite earlier in this piece was not a staffer in The White House’s West Wing, but on NBC’s West Wing, what do you do? That everyone is in on the shell game, everyone but you- and the game is breaking up, and all the actors are scattering in different directions. Who do you chase?

Commiserate with Keith Olberman? Or Google pictures of Scarlet Johansson and Megan Fox?

No really, what do you do?
