Erm. O’Donnell was actually correct about Britney Spears.
You know, I’m going to have to agree with Stacy McCain, here. This 2003 statement by Christine O’Donnell, about Britney Spears? “And you can tell that Britney Spears is struggling with who she is. I think she has a team of agents and managers who are saying, yes, push the envelope, kiss Madonna, take off all your clothes. And she’s doing that because she doesn’t | Read More »
Coons vs. Coons in ‘Biden seat’ rhetoric!
Compare and contrast: “It’s often said that this is Joe Biden’s seat. It’s not. It’s Delaware’s seat.” This would have been a fine statement by Chris Coons (D-CAND, DE-SEN) in last Thursday’s debate*… if only he believed it. You see, one of the people that have often said that the seat in question was “Joe Biden’s seat” is… Chris Coons (D CAND, DE-SEN). We cannot | Read More »
Reid’s Pet (D CAND, DE-SEN) broke promise, raised taxes.
Via The Other McCain and The Tech Guy we see this helpful reminder; as New Castle County’s head official Democratic Senatorial candidate Chris Coons managed to somehow turn an inherited surplus and a firm no-tax pledge into multiple violations of said pledge and Delaware’s most populous county headed towards bankruptcy (by his own admission). And Coons had to preemptively address the tax issue, which is | Read More »
The first post-primary poll in Delaware
I normally like to let these races rest a week before I start looking into the polling, but thanks to one pollster sitting on a pre-primary poll to drop the bomb after the primary, I thought I’d hit today the actual first post-primary poll of the race between Democrat Chris Coons and Republican Christine O’Donnell.
Meet Chris Coons (D CAND, DE-SEN). Harry Reid’s… pet.
Understandable that this would be said of Chris Coons: after all, look at that happy grin! That marvelous posture! That glossy coat… pelt… erm, skin! Admittedly, this isn’t the best example of the breed in the smarts department – Coons admitted to being a Marxist in his more hirsute days, and we all know that Marxism is intellectualism for stupid people – but smarts aren’t | Read More »
A Note on Delaware
It took Sharron Angle 3 days to get to $500,000.00 after getting the GOP nomination in Nevada. Since then, her fundraising flow has not stopped. In Delaware, Christine O’Donnell has reached $500,000.00 in less than 24 hours from her win. Nice. P.S. You can donate to O’Donnell’s campaign here.
Today in Washington – September 15, 2010
Christine O’Donnell is the buzz in Washington, D.C. today. She joins Ron Johnson and Joe Miller as the most recent additions to the Tea Party push for constitutional conservatism in the Capitol. The House has 23 votes scheduled on the Suspension Calendar. The Senate will continue debate on H.R.5297, the Small Business Jobs bill. Cloture was invoked on the bill thanks to Senator George Voinovich (R-OH) giving Democrats the necessary vote | Read More »

Karl Rove and the Tea Parties
Thanks for the kind comments on my thoughts on Delaware. But I wanted to add a brief note about the views of Karl Rove, who blasted away at Christine O’Donnell before the votes were even all counted. It’s an instructive moment about how the old guard is failing to adapt to this new environment. It’s been a rough cycle for Rove. He’s provided behind-the-scenes consulting, | Read More »
GOP, Inc. As Darth Vader Starring Rob Jesmer As the Guy in the Suit
It is a delightful morning. The National Republican Senatorial Committee and the GOP Establishment, including Karl Rove in full on meltdown last night on Fox News, has been beaten yet again in Delaware by the supposedly crazy girl from the fringe who could not possibly take out the 12 time elected Republican Mike Castle. Christine O’Donnell was crazy . . . crazy like a fox. | Read More »
Don’t Repeat the Mistakes of the Past
As an observer, primaries like the sort just concluded in Delaware are incredibly amusing. It’s an opportunity to see bloggers, reporters and flacks who’ve never won anything anywhere declare emphatically that someone will definitely or can’t possibly win in a state they’ve never run a campaign in, and in some of the more absurd cases, have never even been to. The best part is, a | Read More »
Congratulations Christine O’Donnell
The same people who told us we had to go with Charlie Crist also told us we had to go with Mike Castle. The Republican voters of Delaware said, “no thanks,” just like the voters in Florida. Tonight Christine O’Donnell is the Republican nominee in Delaware and Mike Castle is defeated. A pretty good night so far.
Castle & Impeachment
I had wanted to post this earlier today, but got busy getting ready for a two week trip. It is still timely and relevant. Over the past 24 hours, Mike Castle has been attacked for voting to refer Articles of Impeachment to the House Judiciary Committee against President George W. Bush. He did. So did 24 other Republicans including Peter King of New York. Now, | Read More »
Thank the Lord for Rush, Sean, and Mark
It has been terrific to hear Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, and Mark Levin come to Christine O’Donnell’s defense. This race is not about Republicans winning. This is about conservatives not giving in. As Rush Limbaugh said earlier today, there are some Republicans not worth electing. Mike Castle is one of them. Fight it out in the threads if you want. At least, and praise God, | Read More »
What’s At Stake In Delaware
Tomorrow, the voters in seven states and the District of Columbia go to the polls to conclude the primary election season. The most closely-watched race on the ballot will be the race between long-time at-large liberal Republican Congressman Mike Castle and Tea Party-backed conservative insurgent Christine O’Donnell for the Republican nomination for the open Senate seat previously vacated by Joe Biden. Because the election is | Read More »
Kaboom, part one: O’Donnell over Castle
I said twice before that Christine O’Donnell’s big challenge in the Delaware Republican primary for Senate was that she needed to give the voters a reason to vote for her over the popular Mike Castle. For the whole primary season, she’d failed at that. Judging by the new PPP poll, she’s very recently had great success. She leads.
