Well, it’s certainly not painful. At least, for me:
“[Erstwhile Texas Democratic gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis is] not doing as well as people had hoped, expected or wanted,” said Bill Miller, an Austin lobbyist who works with both Democrats and Republicans and who is a friend of Ms. Davis’s. “I think there were unrealistic expectations.”
Gee, you think? – Not that I mind national Democrats throwing 20 million down the money pit that is the Wendy Davis campaign. It fuels economic activity – and better that it be spent on doomed Democratic campaigns than on viable Democratic ones. But I do wonder if anybody on the Left is going to take a hit to their credibility for encouraging this wasted effort in the first place. Probably not – and that’s not really a partisan slam; accountability for failure is rarely taken, and even more rarely offered. Shoot, I have gotten it wrong on more than occasion.
I’ve also never set on fire 20 million of my own party’s money in the process, mind you.
