Here in MA, we're exercised about the US Senate race, almost certainly Brown v. Warren, financier's lackey v. financier's gadfly. Much has happened in the past week. For POTUS, the caucuses loom, the players shift, and the GOP seems determined to ensure their own defeat. We'll blather about the news, noise and possibilities. Will the Dem Senate majority swell? Will the elephant people manage to blow totally the awful economic mess? Will the toxic blowhard now leading their field really top their pathetic ticket? We can jive as well as anyone.
