Are we Americans?

The Senator from Massachusetts has become so insulting in politics that one wonders whether the state is actually American. The Gadflyer's Paul Waldman examines how"Massachusetts" figures into the rhetoric of the presidential campaign, capturing some of the frustration that people are feeling out here (something Robert Reich noted months earlier) at the constant disparaging of the state. Will we soon question whether or not the Senate is American?
