But for sheer viciousness and ubiquity (on both sides), nothing I've seen this year has topped the Sununu / Shaheen battle, which has been blanketing the TV airwaves.

Usually, I don't notice the fact that we share a media market with New Hampshire, but this year it has pretty well sucked. The one advantage of living in a virtually one-party state is that MA's internal politics have been all but invisible this election season, save for a few nasty-but-funny Barney Frank ads...
