Midterm Madness!

Just in time for the end of football season, the good folks at TAPPED have started a new blog called Midterm Madness, which covers the 2006 election. It's got all the news on polls and fundraising and everything else.

I try not to spend too much time reading about scandals, since knowing that kind of information loses its value a lot quicker than knowledge of, say, the kind of stuff that Brad Plumer writes about. But horse-race political coverage has massive sport-like entertainment value. I guess that's one reason why most of the media covers races that way rather than trying to be genuinely enlightening about the positions of the candidates.
