When is a win not really a win?

Sherrod Brown--who is for all intents and purposes a pompous a s s wipe--has what appears to be a slight (4 point) lead over the ill-chosen Josh Mandel in the race for the US Senate. Now I'm a reliable member of the GOP, at least when it comes to the majority of candidates, but Josh Mandel is a dud and a half. I'll vote for him because that's how much I hate Sherrod Brown and his pathetic, pedestrian class warfare mentality, but I'm not happy about it. So how bad does Sherrod Brown feel right now (assuming that he actually has feelings, which is probably a reach)? He's barely beating a guy who looks like he still shaves with a safety razor and is blindingly unqualified to be a US Senator. Brown has massive cash and ad buys from the DNC across this state and has been at President Obama's side a dozen times in the last eight weeks. With all of that he still has to sweat every last minute until election day. That should give him pause, especially once he gets a moment to quietly reflect on his job and his duty to the taxpayers. If I was running that close with such a terrible challenger I think I'd humble myself a little bit before the next session started. But then again I'm not a total a s s wipe like Sherrod Brown.
