This is Joe Lieberman’s country. ~David Brooks

He might have said, “This is Joe Sestak’s country,” but he simply couldn’t conclude talking about any election without mention the Liebster.

I enjoy how the new conventional wisdom is that a projected loss of around 30 seats in our hyper-gerrymandered age is somehow not considered a big deal.  Of course, if I had just had my head handed to me, politically speaking, I would come up with reasons why it wasn’t a big deal, too.  I might even start raving about Joe Lieberman.  But I would be painfully, terribly wrong.
