If Mike Castle becomes the next United States Senator from Delaware he is going to get sworn in, serve a bit, then become a Democrat, resign, and let Beau Biden get an appointment.
It's a done deal. The deal has been made already. I'm hearing this not just from Christine O'Donnell people, but party regulars in Delaware, some of whom support Castle. It is insane.
Maybe that is why Mike Castle is running from Christine O'Donnell. He is afraid to have to answer questions about this. The man will not debate her to save his life.
In fact, Christine O'Donnell, unlike Mike Castle, is actually ahead of the Democrat in the polls in Delaware. Read that sentence again people because too many of you think we must support Castle to win the seat.
Christine O'Donnell is ahead of the Democrat in the polls.*
Mike Castle is not.
And here's another dirty little secret Mike Castle would prefer you not know. This election? It's a special election. Whoever wins it gets sworn in immediately. Immediately as in prior to any lame duck session of Congress.
In a lame duck session of Congress, would you rather have Christine O'Donnell or Mike Castle? One of the two will defend freedom. The other will become a Democrat.
Last polling I saw in the race had O'Donnell ahead. That was about two weeks ago. I see from some commenters that this is no longer the case. Still, do we really trust that Castle can beat the Dem before becoming one?
