Statehouse Snippets: Collateral Damage

Excerpted from this post at Statehouse Snippets
The 2006 election campaign has resembled that cliché moment in a war movie when a commander explains how he had to destroy a village to save it. Both parties have waged a win-at-all-costs war to capture control of congressional seats, the governor's office, the state legislature and other offices. And when the dust settles, the TV ads fade to black and the partisan shooting finally stops, it's hard to imagine that those institutions haven't suffered at least some collateral damage in the weary eyes of Iowans. ... Bad feelings and grudges are sure to linger after what clearly has been one of the most negative and nasty campaign seasons in recent memory. This one's going to linger for a while.
