OMG. Gov. Eliot Spitzer. Truly, is this not a sign of the end times? OTOH, who the heck was he running against? (Or, as K-Lo put it in Hillary Clinton's case - paraphrasing - "Sen. Clinton will claim victory. This will come as a shock to many New Yorkers, who did not even realize she was running opposed.") Thankfully, the sensible, Weicker-loving voters of Conn. have spared us Sen. Lamont - sweet Jesus, hurts just thinking about that.
Here's some of the great, incisive commentary we can expect in the next few days. It's the first time I've seen this meme tonight -- but not the last, I'm sure.

I'm sure it's news to the President (and to the Congress) that Congress "has marched in step behind the commander in chief". And this guy is supposedly a WH correspondent?
(Another "instant classic" just seen: "Democrats Score Upsets in Key Races". You go, AP. What on earth will you write if Steele wins in Maryland - "Black Republican ekes out freakish win"?)
