Christine O'Donnell! Carl Paladino! The Tea Party (it's not really a party) HAS WON (some primaries). And they'll take the senate now, because Democrats aren't going to vote at all, but all Republicans love the Tea Party candidates!
Okay, almost all. Okay, some.
"O'Donnell ...enters the race against Coons as an underdog, putting GOP control of the Senate further out of reach. Former George W. Bush political adviser Karl Rove told Fox News Channel, "This is not a race we're going to be able to win."CBS, which is a lot classier than me, doesn't bring up the anti-masturbation rhetoric or the fact that at 41, she still isn't married. Which means that if you're worried about your politicians being some kind of mysterious "other" maybe you don't want to pal around someone who has never had an orgasm in her life. And probably thinks you shouldn't have either. In fact, she will probably attempt to pass laws against it.
...Her victory set off a round of accusations and fingerpointing inside and outside the GOP.
Republican Party officials who saw Castle as their only hope for winning the Delaware seat once held by Vice President Joe Biden made clear they will not provide funding for O'Donnell in the general election. The Republican state chairman, Tom Ross, has said O'Donnell "could not be elected dogcatcher," and records surfaced during the campaign showing that the IRS had once slapped a lien against her and that her house had been headed for foreclosure. She also claimed falsely to have carried two of the state's counties in a race against Biden six years ago."
Paladino? Also doesn't have a chance, also crazy. But unlike O'Donnell, the guy Paladino bumped off the ticket didn't have a chance either.
Anyway, the point is we all win. The 'baggers get the candidates up for a vote, and the Democrats get easy-to-defeat candidates. All they have to do is QUOTE 'EM! And deep down a part of me dreads the future, because the Democrats probably will fail to do it.
