And Now, Your Moment Of BWAHAHA.

Ever get the feeling that this just might not be your year?

When the deadline for certification passed yesterday, Jim Ogonowski, the Republican leadership’s choice to challenge US Senator John F. Kerry, was 82 signatures short of qualifying for the GOP primary ballot, according to the state’s central voter registry.

But Ogonowski’s campaign aides contend there are enough certified signatures at various town offices around the state not filed yet on the computerized registry to put him across the 10,000 threshold.

(…)

“We are confident that we have the required amount of signatures,” said Alicia Preston, Ogonowski’s press secretary.

Even if Ogonowski does get the 82 signatures he needs, his fight probably is not over.

Election specialists say he will not have the needed cushion of extra signatures to insulate himself from legal challenges.

Ogonowski’s only primary opponent, Jeff Beatty, is expected to challenge the validity of his signatures before the ballot law commission.

Wow.  What a complete organizational collapse.  Er, um, I mean, this can only be good for Republicans.  It will, uh, free up NRSC resources for other, more competitive races!  Yeah, that’s it!  They totally meant to do that!
