If last night’s results showed us anything, it’s that any little boy can grow up to outspend his opponent almost 3:1 with family and union money, and run an epochally sleazy campaign based on dodgy context and virtually no fact, with the aid of an in-the-bag media that won’t start asking the tough questions until January, and back into office by a fraction of a point (maybe) while insulting the intelligence of a little over half the electorate, and become governor just in time to sign on to an agenda that just got overwhelmingly repudiated nationwide.
For a term.
That’s one Renoir for every 3,000 votes’ worth of margin.
Congratulations, Governor Hatch. Er, “Governor Dayton”. Seriously. Don’t change a thing.
