Unforced Error

Views

We’ve been covering it closely, but I haven’t had a chance to flag in here the bizarro situation in New York, where Democrats are scrambling to hold onto the House seat in the heavily Democratic 9th Congressional District.

That’s the seat which was held by Anthony Weiner until his Twitter meltdown so perhaps only fitting that the bizarreness continues.

What do I mean by “scrambling”? National Democrats are now involved, throwing money into the race to save the Democratic candidate, who by almost every measure has been a disaster. The election is Tuesday.

In a cycle with little margin of error for Democrats, this is a potentially big unforced error.
