Doug Flutie she is not. The Hotline is reporting that the 'Hail Mary' attempt by a little known café owner to get on the Democratic ballot to replace outgoing Indiana Senator Evan Bayh has failed.

Tamyra D'Ippolito talked tough while appearing on FOX News this morning, saying that she had enough signatures to file a petition of nomination. In order to hit the mark she needed at least 500 signatures in every House District.

She was just a little short in one district though – like 497 signatures short.

"An official in Marion Co. (IN) tells Hotline OnCall d'Ippolito turned in just 3 signatures in the 7th CD, the district with the highest percentage of Dem voters," Reid Wilson writes. "The noon deadline has passed, meaning d'Ippolito failed to meet the requirements to get on the ballot. She would have been required to submit 4,500 signatures, including at least 500 from each of the state's 9 districts."
