Still no rage on potential OH-6 disaster!

Read the piece linked here and weep!
Most folks seem to think that, come November, each party will be a couple of seats away from controlling the US House. The lefty 'sphere has rightly been proclaiming a 50 state strategy for months. No stone unturned. Every district counts.
And a bunch of Dem morons in OH quite likely have managed by their gross incompetence to ensure that OH-6 - #5 in the National Journal list of the 25 most vulnerable House seats (my earlier piece) - stays in the GOP column!
The piece says the candidate, Charlie Wilson
took much of the blame, admitting that he didn't realize that his home county, where he got most of the signatures, is split between two Congressional districts.
But why in hell's name were his handlers relying on the candidate to know the boundaries of his district?
Isn't one of the many reasons that a candidate has managers and consultants and the like to ensure that he doesn't have to worry about such details?
Why aren't folks here jumping up and down now like they did over Hackett?
What's the use of a Dem 50 state strategy if the Dem organizations don't take care of the basic, but legally vital, paperwork for their candidates?
What has DCCC honcho Emmanuel (no Calhounist on states rights he) been doing to ensure that no other district suffers from similar problems?
What has Chairman Dean got to say about the OH-6 snafu? If ever another scream was warranted...
