11. I'm beginning to think a Democratic loss can never be accepted as legitimate.
It always seems to be, "we was robbed". Kind of reminds me of the prima donna wide receivers who cry for a flag every time they miss a pass because obviously they had to have been fouled since they would never drop a pass.

How about: entia non sunt multiplicanda praeter necessitatem. Occams Razor--the most simple explanation is preferred. In this case we don't need any elaborate statistical tin-foil conspiracy theory to explain an election loss when Democrats had a less than stellar candidate who did not fight as hard for Ted Kennedy's seat as hard as he would have fought for it himself and seemed to assume that the seat was hers (after all, how could a Republican capture Ted Kennedy's seat?)

How about when Brown faces reelection that the Democrats put against him a candidate that will fight as hard as it takes to win the seat and take nothing for granted?
