It’s Chambliss

MSNBC is calling Georgia for Chambliss, notwithstanding slightly creepy and inappropriate fondling in a Thanksgiving ad, and a less-than-stellar record with respect to actually supporting troops in the field.

Two notes.

First, I don’t know that 59 (or 58) senators is a lot worse than 60 – I know the GOP is more in lockstep that the Dems, but you should be able to pick off one or two self-interested moderates to break a filibuster.

Second, this means that, pending the resolution of the Franken-Coleman recount, my Senate prediction of 59 Democrats is still on track. (Still waiting on 5 house seats – I need four to go blue to hit my prediction of 259 Dems.)
