I don't know a lot about that campaign, but what I do know seems so absurd that it looks like the Dems just threw the race. It's either that or they're so bumblinlgy inept they make the Keystone Kops seem graceful. Either or.
One article I read on it said it was, indeed, ineptitude, but it was made significantly worse by complacency.
It was a lot of everything. Coakley's lackadasical campaign, which turned into Coakley's negative campaign on Brown (which turned voters off on her), her being so out of touch as seen quoted above, plus a lot of people are fed up with Obama's tax and spend reign that hasn't produced more jobs, the transparency he promised that doesn't exist, why would people want a Dem majority in the Senate? . And the fact that 61% of the people don't want health care, the fact Brown promised to vote against didn't hurt him, and that Coakley capmaigned for it didn't help her.
Anywho, I promise to post some funny pics later tonight to get this thread back where it belongs
