That Seems About Right

Representative Marsha Blackburn from Tennessee's 7th Congressional District

Peggy Noonan's article this morning (9/24/2010) is worth reading.  She characterizes the political mood in the United States as being "The Enraged vs. the Exhausted."

That's a clever way of recalling the sentiment expressed by Velma Hart at Monday's CNBC Town Hall for President Obama in Washington, DC.  Tony Norman at the Pittsburgh Gazette has a good description of the encounter.

But back to Ms. Noonan...

Peggy brings into her column the perspective of Representative Marsha Blackburn from Tennessee.  Rep. Blackburn has been on the campaign trail of late, and she says that the proper descriptor for the Republican base is not "enraged" but "livid."

That seems about right.

UPDATE 1/29/2013:
Representative Blackburn is in the news again.  I like her spunk.
