What the "experts" just don't get

The Delaware results, and their analysis of those results, tells you everything the "experts" just don't get about the current mood of the American public:
[I]n the case of Christine O’Donnell, who defeated Michael N. Castle in the Republican Senate primary in Delaware last night, it hadn’t even occurred to me to add that possibility to the model until a few weeks ago. Mr. Castle had been elected statewide 12 times — twice as governor, once as lieutenant governor and nine times as Delaware’s at-large United States representative.

It "hadn't even occurred" to them that people are tired of the same permanent office holders running for the same offices year after year after year.

The experts just don't understand that when most people hear someone was "elected statewide 12 times", they think it's a bad thing, not a good thing.
