As You’d Expect, New Hampshire Tightens

Republican Scott Brown is gaining on incumbent Dem Jeanne Shaheen in their New Hampshire Senate race.  The Empty Barn Jacket leads 46-44.  Last month’s 12-point Shaheen lead seemed a little too good to be true.

The Anarchist wing of the GOP has taken over.  Hey, Boehner, you reap what you sow, and you sowed a crop of nut jobs.
