The Fall Guy

It's Ben Bernanke:

California Democrat Barbara Boxer has become the latest senator to oppose the nomination of Ben Bernanke to a second term as Chairman of the Federal Reserve.

Boxer's opposition, which she announced in an exclusive statement to the Huffington Post, is a blow to Bernanke. Boxer is no firebreather on economic issues, but considered a more mainstream Democrat from a state that was considered comfortably blue -- until Tuesday's special election in Massachusetts, that is.

On Twitter, Politico's Martin Kady said the the anti-Bernanke sentiment is "starting to snowball." That's all well and good -- but changing people isn't going to save the Democrats. Changing policies, however, just might.

Until then, enjoy watching the circular firing squad.
