Louisiana Sen. Mary Landrieu managed to survive Tuesday’s Republican tsunami when a divided electorate forced a Dec. 6 runoff election. Does the incumbent have momentum on her side? Not on Twitter, it seems. Landrieu’s #WhereWasBill campaign tweet posted this afternoon racked up zero retweets but did score one favorite (from JJ the Purple Twitter Egg) over the course of four hours.

@JimmyPrinceton she got a favorite. She's up to my status now.

@sarahrstevenson I made a twitter list of every swing state Senate Democrat to watch their messaging. All silent now but her. Eerie.

Conservatives were happy to respond to Landrieu’s tweet, once other conservatives let them know it existed.
@MaryLandrieu it's over. Let it go.

@MaryLandrieu I'll tell you where he wasn't…helping to shove Obamacare down the throats of Americans like you were doing

@MaryLandrieu Mary, if you need a hug, mine are free. If you need a place to crash after the new term, I have an open couch.

@MaryLandrieu Put a penny on the needle- I think your record player keeps skipping and repeating the same crap over and over.

@MaryLandrieu You should bow out with your dignity in tact.

@MetricButtload Just looked at her timeline. She’s tweeting in the third person. Weird, maybe symptomatic. Someone should check on her.

Maybe JJ the Purple Twitter Egg is the last intern left at DSCC headquarters making sure all the lights are turned out.
@MaryLandrieu I keep waiting for the DSCC to favorite and re-tweet your message – did I miss it? Oh, they left? Sorry, then. G'night.
