You're not the only one, I'm sure... You couldn't possibly get all the coolant out anyway. To get the spilled coolant out of the crankcase, I used a shop vac with a 3/8 line "duct taped" to the intake hose. If you seal it properly, you can suck all the liquid out of the crankcase. I used a line small enough to get between the crankcase and the crankshaft - not much room ...

you need to hurry up and get it out because there is water in that coolant and your crank bearings dont like water

Ive used the shop-vac method myself before works really well.
After you get all the coolant out,blow out the crankcase with some compressed air then spin the crank very slowly while putting a little two stroke oil on the bearings should be fine.

How much coolant got in there???

If worse came to worse you could fill the crankcase with oil and slowly turn the crank over by hand. Let it sit overnight. Since water is lighter than oil it will float to the top and then you can suck the coolant off the top. Then remove as much oil as you can from the case before you put the motor back together, most will empty if you pull the vacuum line to the fuel pump.

But this has never happened to me.

umm....it's a good theory....but water is heavier than oil, it'll settle to the bottom.

make VERY sure you've got all of it out, if it gets into your bearings it'll wipe 'em good.

good luck! and btw, not the dummest thing i've ever heard...
