Meteor Blades updates us on "Iraq by the Numbers." Truly chilling.
New Hampshire: The New Hampshire Democratic Party has put up StopSununu.com - its purpose is self-explanatory. Check it out!
Oregon: Gordon Smith's economic policies promise to create jobs. In reality, though, Gordon Smith's economic policies benefit the companies that are laying off workers.
Kentucky: The protest against Mitch McConnell continues around the clock.
Alabama: In its first post in a month and a half, Blue Sparks in Alabama wonders if there is still a chance for a 2008 Senate candidacy for Commissioner Ron Sparks. Though only ajar very slightly, the door is not sealed shut.
Kansas: In a shout-out to McCarthyism, the KS-GOP has reportedly established a "Loyalty Committee." This follows earlier reports of the KS-GOP's Unity Pledge.
It really is impressive how many Senators won despite being outspent by their opponent:
AZS2I'm not saying that it's good to have less campaign cash available, obviously. I'm just saying that you don't have to outspend your opponent to win. Heck, Jim Talent and Rick Santorum spent over $10 million more than Claire McCaskill and Bob Casey, and George Allen outspent Jim Webb by over $9 million. Money isn't everything. (But it helps!)
