I posted many times about the insane Vernon Robinson ads during the run-up to the November election. He got his ass handed to him by a wonderful progressive---Brad Miller:
Miller (D) 64 96,892
Robinson (R) 36 55,324

Kos tells us that he may quit the world of politics.

"I've been continuously on the campaign trail since 2001. It's getting old," Robinson told The Associated Press. "You never say never, but I don't have any future political plans." [...]

During a victory speech at state party headquarters Tuesday night, Miller mocked his opponent's political history, telling Robinson to take some advice from late comedian W.C. Fields.

"If at first you don't succeed, try, try again. Then quit," the congressman told a crowd of laughing supporters.

Can you help us out?
