Unfortunately, the people that Massachusetts sends to Congress screw things up for the rest of us.

By now, you're likely vaguely familiar with this race.  In one corner stands 37-year Congressman and reflexive liberal Ed Markey, whose positions on certain issues are sometimes a bit muddled.    In the other corner is (very) moderate Republican and political novice Gabriel Gomez, the son of Colombian immigrants, and a former Navy SEAL with a Harvard MBA.  The latter candidate has an 'R' next to his name, which is why he's trailed in every single poll in his very blue state....
