    but we know the media will make a big enough deal about the losses last night that it will effectively weaken the Democrats. I don't think it'll prove too important in the long run--whatever happens next year--but the perception does create the reality to some extent. What's significant is that Obama benefits from lowered expectations.

      That's exactly what they try to do.  I've never seen such a trumpeting of a couple of local races as such a huge indicator of a national trend.  They'll find any excuse to report it as a 'reality' in the hopes of trying to make it a reality.  

      "If that apple falls from the tree in the next six hours, it means the country is waking up to realize that Barack Obama is a fraud!"  And the national pundidiots sit down and watch the apple with bated breath.
