Remember How We Defended The Secret Service Last Week? Well, Funny Story...

So, that happened: The 2014 election is right around the corner, and HuffPost Pollster's Mark Blumenthal says it's "gut-check time" for the media's polling wonks. Meanwhile, far from the hullabaloo of the midterms, WikiLeaks editor Julian Assange lies dreaming in the Ecuadorian Embassy in London, where HuffPost's own Ryan Grim paid him a visit.
