Sucks When Your Internet Connection Goes Out

I'm back...uh, what happened?

...holy crap, 52-48! A win would've been great, but I certainly didn't expect to do this well.

...Armando says it well:

New Ohio Democratic superstar Paul Hackett went into the lion's den of pure Red Southern Ohio and scared the pants off of the GOP losing by less than 4 points in the face of a NRCC promise to "bury him."

No spin - the GOP is on the run.

Let's remember what the Cook Report said earlier:

If Schmidt's victory margin is in double digits, this tells us that there is not much of an anti-GOP wind in Ohio right now. If the margin is say six to nine points for Schmidt, then there is a wind, but certainly no hurricane. A Schmidt win of less than five points should be a very serious warning sign for Ohio Republicans that something is very, very wrong, while a Hackett victory would be a devastating blow to the Ohio GOP.

Something is very, very wrong for the Ohio GOP.
