Dotzauer scandal explodes into not much

Republicans are all tingly over a story about how Ron Dotzauer's ex-wife says one thing or another about their marriage.
A longtime friend and adviser to U.S. Sen. Maria Cantwell is fighting the unsealing of his divorce case to hide his "bad behavior and possible illegal actions," his ex-wife has alleged in a court filing.
It's thin gruel for GOP supporters, who are staring an historic defeat in the face. So let's play our own version of the game "Simple Answers to Simple Questions," with apologies to Atrios.
Q: Why won't this revelation do any lasting harm to the Maria Cantwell campaign?

A: Because regular people don't care who she dated 15 years ago, and they really don't care what that guy's ex-wife says.
Thank you for playing. This has been another episode of "Simple Answers to Simple Questions."
