Well, it's obvious that Rachael takes elections very seriously.
Maddow's "Matthews Moment"
I know everyone has alerady heard this story, and so am just pointing it out. But it sure does fit into what some of us have been hoping for: that voters would show their anger at the polls. It sends a strong message to DC - I just hope they're listening.
Voters back anti-DC, anti-establishment candidates
"Dealt fresh blows from an angry electorate, Republican and Democratic leaders in Washington on Wednesday studied the defeats of Senate incumbents and hand-picked candidates in hopes of learning lessons to avoid losses in other upcoming primaries if not the fall election.
Any doubt about just how toxic the political environment is for congressional lawmakers and candidates preferred by party leaders disappeared the night before, when voters fired Democratic Sen. Arlen Specter in Pennsylvania, forced Democratic Sen. Blanche Lincoln into a runoff in Arkansas and chose tea party darling Rand Paul to be the GOP nominee in Kentucky's Senate race." http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20100519/ap_on_re_us/us_primary_rdp
