Maybe I'm imaging things, but it seems like more women get the whole perennial loser thing going on as of recent than men. Why is that? Martha Coakley, Alex Sink, Wendy Greuel?

Because when a man loses, it's "well, you win some you lose some, they did their best! The environment was just too much for them to overcome. Let's run them five more times like Manan Trivedi and Joe Garcia".

When a woman loses? "OMFG WORST CANDIDATE EVER NEVER RUN AGAIN YOU SUCK"

That didn't really explain anything. Typical IceSpear post.

It does though. There are plenty of men "perennial losers" (I named two right in that post). They just don't get focused on as much as the female ones so nobody cares/knows about them.

Huh

I mean they should. I have no clue why Democrats keep on running Manan Trivedi over and over again inspite of his consistent loser status (Garcia, on the other hand, actually won a seat in congress). You have a tendency to strawman everything, but I guess I see your point, though my question now is why that is.

I hope Democrats have the same hatred for Joe Baca (who is basically a sexist moron AND a loser). It seems to be an epidemic on the Democrat side of things too.

IceSpear is exactly right. Coakley has been running a good campaign this year. The fundamentals favor Baker because he's also running a good campaign. The only Dem to be elected governor since 1986 was able to succeed because he summoned into being a massive power base outside of the Dem hierarchy. You pretty much need to do that to succeed against a party all too happy to work with a reasonable Republican, especially against a woman.

I'd say Baker has run a much stronger campaign (which is why he's winning), particularly in comparison to his failed 2010 run.
