Here in Connecticut in the U.S. Senate race, the very WASPY Christopher Shays, who had been a U.S. Representative for decades, is dumping on his opponent for the primary Linda McMahon, reports POLITICO.

Whoever wins the August primary will have to face off against the popular Democrat Chris Murphy. In social media, he is running a smart campaign. The e-mail I get from his office is conversational, to the point, and hits on something I am or should be concerned about.

A few weeks ago, influential THE ECONOMIST did the present administration a big favor by having as its cover story the American economy as the Comeback Kid.
