    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.

    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.

    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, this | Read More »
