I was wrong.
Yesterday, I put up a post predicting a Coakley win. "Bank it" were the words I used specifically.

I apologize to anyone whose hopes I got up.

This.

Sucks.

:(

4. Well defeatism would have been worse.
And all those slots were already taken anyway. And then some.

I thought she would pull it out too. And I posted that here on DU. Hopefully this is a wakeup call to our elected DEM officials. We shall see. Thanks for your hard work and your posts here. :hug: You're a good guy, even though you're a Red Sox fan.

11. It hurts my heart, Will.
When I despaired of my own representatives, there was Teddy pulling for me. Now ...

sucks.

It's okay though. Your prediction didn't break my heart. The outcome did. On to 2012, right?

Right?

13. Ultimately, this is just a bump in the road
Edited on Tue Jan-19-10 10:51 PM by yodoobo
Historically insignificant.

One minor Senator is not going to set the agenda of our President.


We are now only ONE vote away from a supermajority.

Four years ago, we would have been thrilled to be where we are now.

15. Blows Chunks, But All Is Not Lost
Edited on Tue Jan-19-10 10:55 PM by Beetwasher
Really. You better than most know that's true.

Hang in bro.

But goddamn, that fucking symbolism and irony and all that fucking shit just blows your fucking mind to tiny fragments then liquifies it in acid. I'll be damned if it doesn't and I'll be fucked if anyone would believe (up until recently) this could really happen.

24. I wasn't. But I wish it were otherwise.
I'd really like to be less of a cynic, but experience keeps justifying the behavior... ah well. The battle is lost, but the war rages on.

31. I was wrong, too.
I posted several times that Coakley would pull it off, and that there was no way in hell a Repuke would take Teddy's seat. And I believed it too... I guess that's why this loss comes as such a big shock to me.

33. It's ok that you said "bank it."
As I said somewhere here tonight, it's always appropriate to predict victory for the Democrat. It's never cool to say otherwise. When the election is over, we can perform the autopsy, but we don't need to have the wake before the loss.

37. no apology needed
i almost get the sense that she was paid to sit on the sidelines as the Republican money rolled in to propagandize the masses, unchallenged by Martha. She seemed like she was happy the pressure was off.

my hopes weren't up, anyway.
it suck balls, there will be real suffering. ya think a revolution will happen or be needed?
