If you're not reading FiveThirtyEight, you should be. (The name is a reference to the number of electors in Presidential contests.) Nate Silver is probably the best and most influential new voice in the blogosphere to come out of the 2008 election cycle.
In his recap of the Georgia Senate runoff held yesterday, he has this fantastic quote:
"But if the Republicans have realized that it doesn't help their cause to constantly be behaving like assholes, then bully for them. - Nate Silver"
I tend to agree, as a healthy democracy needs two healthy parties. Right now, the Republican party is not a healthy party. But beyond that, we should all hope for a return to dignity in our discourse, even as we debate the path our nation should take. We can hope.
