Fill in the Blanks: Politics Edition

I CAME ACROSS THIS QUOTE from The New York Times. With a couple of key identifiers blanked out, can you tell me who wrote this and approximately when? No Googling, now!
For now, we should make every effort to look at the bright side of the [ . . . ] Administration. It has been a failure of such monumental proportions that political apathy is no longer considered fashionable, or even safe, among millions of poerple who only two years ago thought that anybody who disagreed openly with "the Government" was either paranoid or subversive. Political candidates in [ . . . ], at least, are going to have to deal with an angry, disillusioned electorate that is not likely to settle for flag-waving and pompous bullshit.
