Case in point: Sullivan's thoughts on this week's MA-Sen race. Sadly, I find myself in agreement:
So you have resistance to machine politics in a seat controlled by elites for ever; you have an atmosphere of unrest and discontent after two years of recession; you have the Republican base whipped up into an FNC-induced frenzy against the end of America as they know it; and you have the Herald readers sick to death of Kennedy power. For good measure, you have the ugly spectacle of closed door final meetings in Washington over health reform.
I don't see how even Obama can turn back this perfect storm.
