Okay, I think I’m done with the Revolutionary War allusions, but for Dems Mass AG Martha Coakley’s close race is a real scare. And even scarier: that the DSCC has been forced to spend money on her (we’ll soon see how much). Precious money that could have been used to defend Harry Reid — as if his week could get worse, Blanche Lincoln, Byron Dorgan’s open seat or help Dem candidates looking to take five open GOP seats. Coakley will probably win but the closeness of this race has been for Democraitc candidates — incumbents and challengers, vulnerables and those not usually vulnerable — the shot heard around the world.
