The Exhausted VS The Engaged & Other Trends

Over at the Wall Street Journal, Peggy Noonan has characterized the upcoming election as one that will pit an army of grassroots citizens (who are nothing less than livid) against a weary Washington crowd that can barely catch its breath.
Here's how she puts it:

"This election is more and more shaping up into a contest between the Exhausted and the Enraged.
In a contest like that, who wins? That's like asking, "Who would win a sporting event between the depressed and the anxious?" The anxious are wide awake. The wide awake win."
And Noonan has revealing and perceptive comments and first-hand testimony from Congresswoman Marsha Blackburn of Tennessee to back it all up. It's powerful stuff.
