The Blame Game in Maine

Over at Politico, Matthew Gagnon is saying that blame for the Maine loss lies in Obama and company’s failure to get out the vote.

There’s only one problem with this analysis. Voter turnout was huge: 60 percent, according to the Bangor Daily News. Also, before the loss, gay-marriage advocates were boasting about their 8,000 volunteers and significant get-out-the-vote apparatus.

But heck, why let the facts get in the way of good story line?
