From TPM:

4:21 AM … Now that Alaska seems on its way of reelecting its convicted felon senator and its (little doubt) soon to be indicted member of the House, I realize that perhaps I judged Sarah Palin too harshly. In the context of Alaska politics, I guess she really is a reformer.

4:26 AM … Now that the “Bradley Effect” seems set for a richly deserved retirement, TPM Reporter Eric Kleefeld suggests christening the “Stevens Effect” — the poll distorting effect of poll respondents unwillingness to admit they will vote for the convicted felon in the race.
