The Reality of Mielke's Campaign

National Review Online – Could Obey Be Coakley’d? « Sean Duffy for Congress
Q: What does Senator-elect Brown mean for your race?

A: If Scott Brown can win in a state that President Obama won by 26 points, I can win in a district that Obey won by just 20 points against an unknown, underfunded challenger in the Democratic landslide of 2008. It means there is not a single Democrat in the country who is safe. And, as the author of the failed stimulus bill, David Obey will be at the forefront of the debate about jobs, the economy, and wasteful government spending. If he continues to tax and spend our country into bankruptcy, he’s going to get Coakley’d.
I think the above statement - the first sentence of the A: text - sums up Mielke's campaign very nicely. "Unknown, underfunded" are not two adjectives that describe a successful campaign for Congress.  The sad part is that Mielke had to have known before filing his candidacy papers for this race that he was repeating the same mistakes he made in 2008.

Sorry Mr. Mielke, but a political career is not something that just anyone can have.  From one campaign loser to another, please just go home, lick your wounds and figure out what you did wrong.  You can try again when you learn your lesson from your mistakes.
