Fate of the Senate could be determined by big-spending Brown/Warren race – Big L Libertarian jumps in against Tierney and Tisei – Conservative radio shakeup

OFF TO THE RACES: In case you haven’t been paying any attention at all (and who would blame you?) ABC News delivers a nice little primer for the Brown vs. Warren race with an emphasis on something we tend to forget around here: the results could determine the majority of the U.S. Senate next session. (Bonus points to ABC’s Elizabeth Hartfield if she meant that headline to be an allusion to Clue.)

TOTALLY DIFFERENT: I was hoping for a 24-hour buffet of Geddy, Neil and Alex’s prog rock hits. This will not do at all.

THIRD RAIL: A Libertarian gets in the race for John Tierney’s seat, possibly hurting Republican challenger Richard Tisei’s chances.

TANGENTIAL: “When you bring a Jon Hamm into a situation, things just happen.” Do you ever get the feeling Hamm just wants to be a part of the comedy boys club? (Hey, it’s August and Will Ferrell and Zach Galifianakis have a movie about politics, so this is totally relevant.)
