If more evidence were needed that Frank Rich's views about an anti-war silent majority out there in the country is wrong, Massachusetts has provided it. Despite winning the seat in the Congressional 5th District (formerly held by liberal Marty Meehan), an attractive Democratic candidate with instant name recognition, Niki Tsongas could only eke out a 51% to 45% victory over Republican, Jim Ogonowski.
This in a liberal state after four years of unsuccessful war, an inept president and an abdication of all the principles that made America great (justice, rule of law, avoidance of torture, etc.). I think there are a lot of silent war supporters out there.
