Your next Senator from Massachusetts

With stuff like this, it is no surprise that Warren is jumping up in the polls after only a week or so of announcing her intent to run against Scott Brown. Down about 10 points a few weeks ago, she is now up by a point or two.

The best part about this is that the Senate could have appointed her to run the Consumer Protection Agency, but Senate Republicans blocked her nomination from coming to a vote (well, they’ve blocked any and all nominations by Obama of people to run the agency). So instead, she’ll most likely cause those same Republicans to lose a seat next November, a seat that will be crucial if the GOP hopes to re-gain a majority in the Senate.

Unintended consequences can be fun
