Mostly rational politics, with occasional rants about how a few crazy Republicans are ruining the country.

The Colorado Model?
The Washington Post has an article on how some Democrats think we should look to Colorado for an election-winning model; after all, Dems won a number of races in a red state and a red year.
Rather than seeing a shining precedent to follow, I think we got lucky in Colorado - Pete Coors was a poor candidate for the GOP, and Salazar was a fantastic Democrat candidate, who proved to have coattails that extended into some of the smaller races.
The implications for Gov. Bill Owens are significant - he definitely has been trying to up his profile for a dark-horse run at the 2008 GOP Pres nomination.
