    They won't look at the huge loss by Jackson and realize that batsh*t insanity doesn't play outside the base. They'll say, "if only he ran as a true conservative and defended those little pre-born embryos" Cooch would have won.  

    Cooch did so well, IMHO, because he appeared far more reasonable than Jackson, even though there is little, if any, daylight between them policy-wise, and because McAuliffe was an uninspiring outsider. I really didn't give McAuliffe much of a chance when the nominations were first announced, so am pleasantly surprised at the win.

    Quite frankly, we should encourage the GOPs thinking on this. When they go with their guts, nominate right-wing crazies and allow them to let their freak flags fly, Dems win (see the Senate elections 2012).
