And there’s more out there, if you can bear it. I promise that the end of this blog will not be as pessimistic as what follows.


Scott Brown Is Proof All Politics Is Now National

By: Thursday October 23, 2014 10:35 am

There is no better sign that our federal politics are becoming dominated by strong coherent parties than the unusual career of Republicans Scott Brown.

I know you were worried. Could these two ex-Senators find work, one a rookie, the other a veteran? Leaving the Senate nest is always precarious, whether it’s voluntary (as Joe Lieberman can claim, not having sought re-election) or not (as Scott Brown must attest, having lost to Elizabeth Warren).
