So now we LIKE exit polls?
O’Donnell was an awful candidate who didn’t deserve to win. Doesn’t mean Coons deserved to win, but she didn’t either. (I just would have prefered if she did.)
If we want to keep bragging that we’re the party of responsible adults, we can’t nominate people who talk responsibility but don’t pay their bills, sue for $6.9 million when they don’t get promotions, and who run campaigns by paying money to go on the air to announce “I’m not a witch.”
She was supported here as she should have been, but the election’s over. O’Donnell was a horrible candidate, a three-time loser, and she needs to go back to whatever it is she can do well, since running for office as one who doesn’t just talk the talk but lives by conservative principles ain’t it.
Agree. She’s was right on the positions but that’s not enough in elections where people are also judging the candidate personally. You can’t come off that...weird, especially if you’re a Republican.
I don’t get why a lot of conservatives seemed to push her as the face of the Tea Party. If anybody, it should be now Senator-elect Ron Johnson. Normal, every-day business guy actually pushed to run at a Tea Party event (unlike O’Donnell who was involved in politics before).
MSM ran an end-around. Notice they virtually ignored him to focus on the likes of O’Donnell. Why? Because he’s a much more appealing representative of the Tea Party.
