How will D.C. react to an Anti-Incumbent groundswell?

If Tuesday's primaries (05/18/2010) were any indication, all those incumbents coming up for re-election in November better think twice about being established in what was once termed 'a safe seat'. And that goes double for establishment-backed opposition candidates in *either* party.

Unless I miss my guess, there's going to be a shortage of Torches and Pitchforks at the local Home Depot this fall... [snicker]

On the whole, I think this is a Good Thing. The (possible) expense of losing some 'experienced' politicians in positions of power is more than offset by the long-term benefit of reminding those folks exactly who is supposed to be working for who... We'll see if it lasts (I hope so).
