POLITICS: Nasty Frank

Orrin Judd says Frank Lautenberg should benefit from "the Carnahan effect," but really, that effect was just a sympathy vote for a grieiving widow; Lautenberg should have precisely the opposite. In fact, Lautenberg is a most unsympathetic type, a rich man who won his seat by a campaign of personal attacks on an old woman, and a guy who was involved in the dirtiest race (on both sides) I can ever remember, the 1988 Senate race pitting him against Republican Pete Dawkins. Republicans keep getting the shaft from these unforeseen events: the Torricelli shuffle, the death of Carnahan (who didn't pass Ashcroft at the polls until he was dead), the sudden death of Paul Coverdell.
