  •  Lincoln is gonna lose.. (0+ / 0-)

    Doesn't matter if she lost today or November. The fact is that we made a point. You don't get to fuck with the netroots period. She IS gonna lose in November and when that does happen i'll celebrate.

      ...this week.

      That isn't the point that was made tonight at ALL. Much as we might wish it were so.

      Labor is being shredded - rightfully so. Arkansas is no place to wage a union fight, and that is well known.

      The netroots are being labeled as having "taken a hit". I'm not sure many will focus too much on that, since most of the country doesn't give a flip about the netroots, but whatever leverage we think we have took a big hit tonight. Needlessly.

      It is being called an "upset" for Lincoln, given her status as an incumbent, and the massive support generated for her by outsiders. Nowhere will you read or hear anything close to what you've stated here, unfortunately.
