This is not rocket science

You come out of the primary election gate in a bad environment running all negative ads. "Scott Brown voted to deny birth control to rape victims. Scott Brown murders puppies." Repeat ad nauseam. Make sure that every low-information voter's first impression of Scott Brown is that he is cackling over the bodies of rape victims and dead puppies. This is not hard. This is how a disastrously bad governor of Illinois won re-election in 2006 against a popular and well-known Republican opponent. Yes it makes David Broder cry silent tears, but it wins.

I can't believe these hacks lost this thing. No excuse.
