The Grudge Matches
There's a few races out there that mean a lot to political junkies, in a turn-the-knife kind of way. I think any Democrat would list these three:
Michelle Bachmann ("Obama is anti-American", "Congress should investigate Congressmen for being Anti-American" ), Minnesota congresswoman, who is lucky to be facing a guy named "Elwyn Tinklenberg", if that ain't a doob's name I don't no what is. Polls show a dead heat.
Al Franken vs Norm Coleman - Coleman has been a Bushbot from the word go, and back in the days when they had a majority in the Senate, he used his committees for a variety of stupid partisan bullshit junkets. There would be nothing sweeter than seeing him replaced by a fucking comedian. Coleman is up by 2.
Mitch McConnel - heck I don't even know his challenger's name, but as the head of the Senate GOP, symbolically it would be payback for the same fate Daschle suffered back when the GOP was riding high. Mitch is up by 3.
Sununu vs Shaheen, New Hampshire. They ran against each other six years ago, and Sen. Sunoco, er I mean Sununu won a narrow margin. Later it was discovered that the GOP pulled all kinds of dirty tricks to surpress the Dem vote, and a bunch of the bastards went to prison over it. Let's see how Sen CockSunucker does in a fair fight. Shaheen +3
As I watch Obama - McCain, I'll also be watching these. It should be an entertaining night. If the Dem turnout is as huge as it is looking like, it could be a clean sweep.
Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.
