Can You Whine Yourself to a Senate Seat?

This exchange between the Republican candidate for the Senate in Colorado, former GOP Congressman Bob Schaffer, and his Democratic rival, Congressman Mark Udall, is very telling:
Apparently following in the footsteps of John McCain, Schaffer believes that he can whine his way into the United States Senate -- a tactic that sharply contrasts with the magnanimousness of Udall. Coming on the heels of rumors that the National Republican Senatorial Committee was giving up on holding the seat in Colorado being vacated by GOP Senator Wayne Allard, this embarrassing moment couldn't have come at a worse time for Schaffer.
