ANALYSIS/OPINION:

On the day Republican Scott Brown won the Massachusetts election, many financial experts predicted that the Dow Jones Industrial Average would shoot to the moon if he won. In fact, the Dow sank 160 points on Jan. 19.

Last week, on the day Mr. Brown was officially sworn into the Senate, the bottom dropped out of the Dow, falling 270 points.

In the immortal words of Bob Hope: “You’re trying to tell me something.” What can Mr. Brown do for us? Tank the stock market, apparently.
