I had two items prepared for today’s Congressional race in NY-26:
a) Ha, ha, ha–Jonathan Chait was wrong! Before the vote, he said Kathy Hochul’s “likely” victory meant that “the pendulum has swung back” toward the Dems and “[t]he political landscape that produced the Republican sweep of 2010 is gone.” Boy does he look foolish now.
b) Ha, ha, ha–I told you so! Ryan’s Medicare plan is political suicide, for good reason. Maybe now the GOPs will wise up and actually try to win in 2012. Chris Lee died for their sins. Or at least he didn’t get a date.
I guess I’ll go with (b).
