GOP's Sutton tactics on Ritchie say sore loser

When Norm gave it up, I thought it was all over. Silly me! Let's see, two weeks after the incumbent Republican senator from Minnesota finally admitted he couldn't beat the comedian Franken's first try at major elected office, after the Supreme Court found that the recount was handled properly, then Minnesota Republican Party Chairman Tony Sutton decides to blame the poor secretary of state. We didn't win! Blame someone! Hurry!

Sutton, what are you thinking? It won't work. The voters saw the day-to-day pain that Ritchie went through with this recount and saw how he handled it with dignity, fairness and good humor.

Won't work, Mr. Sutton, and the voters hate a sore loser.
