The Times, They Are A-Changin’

I own a house in New Hampshire (near Scott Brown, unfortunately) and will move there in the next year or so, so I think of Republican Kelly Ayotte as one of my senators.

I am thrilled to see that her favorables have plunged 15 points since she voted against the Manchin-Toomey background check bill.  She’s to the right of Pat Toomey on guns?  Really?

I saw this as a very calculated, unprincipled vote, and I hope it comes back to bite her in the tush.

Ayotte feared a primary from her right, feared NRA 30-second ads.   Maybe she’ll be done in by a primary  from her left instead or just a plain old loss in the general.
