Here’s a follow-up to our post last week, in which we wondered how many of the candidates who shunned, cursed or threatened to beat up the press would lose the election:

Sharron Angle, Nevada Senate candidate who avoided reporters and said candidates should teach the media a lesson whenever they have they chance. Loser.

Carl Paladino, New York gubernatorial candidate who told a New York Post reporter, “I’ll take you out.” Loser.

Joe Miller, Alaska Tea Party candidate for Senate whose security guards handcuffed and detained a journalist. Still to be determined.

While the Tea Party had some big successes Tuesday, Tea Party candidates who avoided tough questions and slammed the media did not. Maybe it’s just coincidence.
