When do you act like you are in charge?

Ali Velshi of MSNBC started last night trying to push what I can only suppose will be the corporate media line, i.e. that the election in Georgia had nothing to do with policy.  It had nothing to do with voters choosing one view of the future and the way to get there over another.
