Brian Beutler has a horrendous piece in the New Republic today.  I just want to focus briefly on the article’s title because it is so poorly written.  The title is:

Obama Just Lost the Battle for the Senate. It’s Time He Waged War for Real.

Somebody at the New Republic, perhaps Beutler himself, needs a remedial English course that explains metaphors, or else Beutler is calling for a very extreme response to last night’s elections.
