Another day, another dose of free-floating anxiety.  I am listening to some old time radio to soothe my jangly nerves.  And I don't think we're getting any sun today--morning fog, and it continues to be very gray.  Got a comfy blanket around my shoulders while I drink green tea and listen to silly old radio.

A motorcade taking Vice President Harris to work was in a one-car accident on a closed roadway in D.C. Monday morning, an incident that concerned both the Secret Service director and the vice president and revived worries about the agency's history of concealing its mistakes, according to two people familiar with the incident.

The Secret Service agent driving Harris in a sport utility vehicle struck the curb of a downtown tunnel hard enough that the vehicle's tire needed to be replaced, bringing the motorcade to a standstill near Foggy Bottom at about 10:20 a.m., said the people, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to share internal discussions.

Harris had to be transferred to another vehicle in the motorcade so agents could safely spirit her to the White House. The routine nature of the travel and the high level of training required for agents who drive the president and vice president led many in the Secret Service, as well as Harris, to question how such an accident could happen.

The Secret Service also failed to note key details of the incident in an electronic message formally alerting senior leadership to the motorcade's delay. The agency's protective intelligence division reported that "a mechanical failure" in the lead car had forced agents to transfer Harris to another vehicle during a scheduled movement to the White House, according to details of the alert shared with The Washington Post.

By Monday afternoon, Secret Service Director Kim Cheatle received information from other agents that the alert did not accurately convey what happened, one of the people said. In fact, many other Secret Service agents on Harris's detail and at the White House, as well as Harris, knew her driver had actually hit the side pavement of a tunnel.

A spokeswoman for the vice president said Harris is grateful for all the Secret Service does to keep her safe.

DDHQ 2022 Forecast Update:

In today's model release, three U.S. Senate races change ratings. PA moves from Toss Up to lean D, GA from Lean D to Likely D, and OH from Lean R to Toss Up.

OH and PA races were right on the borderline of their previous ratings. The OH race was just 1% above the Toss Up threshold and PA less than 1% from Lean Democrat before today's updates.

Despite strong polling for Tim Ryan (D), given the GOP advantage in the fundamentals in Ohio, our model still shows J.D. Vance (R) up by nearly 20% in overall chance compared to Ryan.

Overall, it's important to keep in mind these thresholds when qualitative labels are translated or change due to movement in our qualitative model.

Ok, now that I have this scar on my forehead from falling into a concrete pillar in the parking garage a couple weeks ago, I need to come up with a more impressive background story when someone asks how I got it. Ideas:

In a drunken brass-knuckle brawl with forty enraged Irishmen
Get a wild look in my eyes and ask, "Have ye ever heard tell... of a Shoggoth?"
While saving a huddle of poor, starving orphans from rampaging grizzly bears, after which we feasted on their meat
Slowly trace my fingers over it and say in a low voice, "I remember... that Man on Pink Corner..."
While single-handedly fighting off a flock of Canada geese
Lean in close and whisper, "Never insult Flavortown when Fieri is in earshot"
Or just narrow my eyes and stare into the distance, then shake my head and change the subject?
