10. Deja vu all over again. The RNC and the Kochs went all out for Brown and
Coakley was, for most practical purposes, left twisting in the wind.

Yes, she was not a good candidate, but wouldn't that have been all the more reason to have supported her in the general(as opposed to the primary)?

That was not only a very important election, but it was the ONLY election going on at that time.

Brown got tons of money and campaign visits from every Republican who had run for the Presidential nomination in 2008, as well as other nationally prominent Republicans.

I don't know if Wisconsin is the only election going on in June, but it is as important to the 99% (or should be, unless they are brain dead) as any that will occur in November.

God, I hate it when stuff like this happens, especially on what is supposed to be the left.
