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 »
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.
Why DE Republicans Should Vote For Mike Castle.
By and large, I heartily despise GOP “moderates.” Most especially “moderate” Republicans that allow themselves to be used as a foil against other Republicans so the media can cast the party as being full of “extremists” with them being the only ones who are “reasonable” in the caucus. My posting history for the past five years on RS is proof of that. So what about | Read More »
A Few More Thoughts on Delaware
i wrote multiple times in my post the other day that I still want Christine O’Donnell to win the Delaware Primary, and I do. See for example this line: “I wish Christine O’Donnell the best. I’d rather her than Castle.” and this line: “I want Christine O’Donnell to win.” Nonetheless, many people read my prior post as a decision to support Castle, which I made | Read More »
Rasmussen: Castle greatly outperforms O’Donnell
I’m definitely a latecomer to following the Delaware Senate primary between Republicans Mike Castle and Christine O’Donnell, but now that I’m aware of it, it’s striking to me just how differently the two candidates perform in the new Rasmussen poll featuring each candidate against Democrat Chris Coons.
Pulling the Plug in Delaware: The Liberty.com and Christine O’Donnell Matter
I would rather die a thousand times over via crushing by an anaconda while being torn limb from limb by a jaguar than see Mike Castle in the Senate. I would rather be slowly run over by a road roller while listening to Janeane Garofalo dialogue from The Truth About Cats and Dogs than see Mike Castle in the Senate. I’d rather see the Democrat | Read More »
Extrapolating about the Delaware Senate primary
All the talk in your typical Senate analysis this year has assumed Republican Mike Castle will beat Democrat Chris Coons in the Delaware Senate race, but the fact is there’s still a GOP primary in progress. It’s forgivable to forget about that primary when polling of the primary is scarce, and PPP and Rasmussen hold Coons under 40, but let’s extrapolate from the PPP poll | Read More »
Why is Mike Castle Running From Christine O’Donnell?
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. | Read More »
NRSC Endorses Castle (R [sorta] Delaware)?
Or so one might think, given this screen cap from a couple days ago. Now, Cornyn and the kids have been known to get a few wrong in the past, to be sure, but really? Throwing up Castle’s picture in the roatating candidates section, given that he’s not even officially on the ballot yet smells terribly of the same self-inflicted doom the NRSC has long-suffered | Read More »
Christine O’Donnell for U.S. Senate
I have to be honest with you, I think Christine O’Donnell’s bid for the United States Senate will be difficult. She’s a conservative in Delaware. But she has my full support. The thought of Mike Castle in the United States Senate makes me sick to my stomach. There is one practical reason to support Mike Castle. People tell me he will vote for the Republicans | Read More »
Castle’s Wet Finger Doesn’t Like The Way The Wind Is Blowing
Mike Castle (R [allegedly]-DE) has been so busy yukkin’ it up with his Democrat stick buddies in the House that he forgot about an eeevil special interest group that he is going to need if he wants to beat Christine O’Donnell in Delaware’s September 14 primary, let alone get elected to the US Senate in November; the NRA. On June 17 Castle and his pal | Read More »
Christine O’Donnell: Why I’m running for U.S. Senate
Our nation’s founding principles of individual liberty and free enterprise are no longer viewed by our leaders as indispensable. We must stand up to the Washington elites and fight back against a Congress and White House intent on saddling us with their reckless spending, unbearable taxes and unfair policies that stifle our freedom and weigh down future generations with enormous debt. Our country is going | Read More »
