      "they beat us like a rented mule." The team was not physically beaten with whips or whatever, but rather was beaten on the scoreboard. The same is intended here. The phrase  expresses the hope that Bachman is beaten at the polls. The word has more than one meaning, and in this context the meaning is clear.
