British Journo Attempts to Explain American Mood to His Countrymen Using Football Metaphor

Martin Kettle at the Guardian:

"The mood here is like a cup final where your team is ahead with a few minutes to go. Those last few minutes seem to take forever. So near and yet so far. You overreact to every little event on the pitch as the time drags on. You scream manically at the referee to blow the whistle. Right now, Democrats are in that position. They just want it to be over now. But deep down, they don't really think that they will throw this one away."
