This post, sir, is a masterpiece. Muggles, indeed! I have nothing to add as this stands on its own, but I just wanted to commend where commendation is due.

The way this story is reaching me, in New England, is that the fact that Senator Lincoln had to face a primary is a sign that voters are fed up. On NPR today, a rep from pointed out that her narrow victory over Halter had better be a lesson to her about shilling for her corporate benefactors.

My experience here in my state in New England is that nobody takes lessons from primaries.


Lincoln: "Phew! Dodged a bullet! Hey, Senator Reid, can we drop that derivatives amendment from the FinReg Bill now?"

Not that I'm cynical.


84 incumbents ran on Tuesday.

1 lost. One more has to run off the primary but was the leading vote getter.

And the one who lost? Conservative Republican Governor of Nevada who has more ethics investigations against him than a mob boss.

Americans return incumbents 98% of the time. This includes elections like 1994 and 2006, so you have to figure many of the other elections saw 100% incumbent re-elections.
