By and large I've stayed out of the Torriceli flap, simply because I see it as both a tempest in a teapot and a rather sad commentary on the Republican party's ability or willingness to "win" elections without running to the conveniently friendly U.S. Supreme Court. (State's rights my ass.)

(Yes, this is a large reason why I haven't blogged since Wednesday, although it was also because I've been somewhat busy.)

Still, so far as I have an opinion on this subject, it matches
Joshua Micah Marshall's.

The real public good question, it seems to me, is just what harm anyone has suffered through this decision. I can't see one, save Doug Forrester's being forced to run against an actual candidate.
Yeah, that just about sums it up.
