The Sound of the Crowd

Recommended Reading…

  1. Hoffmania’s home. Skip past the stuff about the Jamaica trip to the stuff about why do the Republicans seem so angry in victory.

If you read the comments section, too, I put my two cents in there.

  1. It’s gonna be a long four years.

  1. Washington: Sister state to Florida. Our gubernatorial race may actually be going to the courts. As Tapped points out, what’s interesting about this situation is:

“this race actually has some moderately important national implications. The Republican, Rossi, is widely considered to be the only serious potential challenger to Senator Maria Cantwell in two years; should he become governor, he’ll be taken out of contention and Cantwell will likely be safe. Then again, the Democrats just took back control of the state legislature; the party could certainly benefit from having an erstwhile swing state under consolidated Democratic control, providing a bastion of progressive governance.”

  1. Conservatives: Beyond The Fringe.
