    decide this election, but I'm less accepting of the benchmark.  Yes, Brown's poll numbers did not drop far following the onslaught, but that small difference should not be seen as the total effect.  Brown's numbers without the net ads against him may well have risen 5 points, or more. I'm not as willing to dismiss the subversion of democracy this money represents.

    "It is not, you fucking liberal prick." ..My RW friend Dave's last words to me.

      My sense is that there were a lot of people out there who, because of the negative ads, felt that Sherrod "is a terrible senator," but for no particular reason — and they didn't like Josh Mandel either. So they voted for Scott Rupert or they didn't vote at all.

      Jon Husted is a dick.
