It's All About the Turnout

Nov

So the results are in and it looks like the Dems have once again done badly in an off-year election. Some go so far as to say that with such results the Dems are "in crisis".

I haven't looked carefully at the results -- has anyone yet? -- but I get the feeling just like last year's lost for Gov. Quinn, that victory wasn't due so much to an increase in number of the other side so much as a decrease in participation by the Dems.

Preparing the Way

Pretty dumb NYT article title: "Chicago Mayor’s Race Is Cast as a Test of Liberalism".

Fact is, a Chuy victory is pretty much a long shot (though one I'd like to see). Long-shots are no test of nothin' -- except maybe preparing the way for some future narrative along the lines of "Big Liberal Defeat, blah, blah, blah..."
