    Re: Delaware Senate Race: A Kamikaze Republican and the Tea Party

    i do not involve myself in gop intramurals, and i won't here

    but i'll make some factual observations, simply fyi

    fox called ms odonnell winner

    83% chance of beating coons is perhaps about right, right about now

    but there's no doubt the gop candidate will bounce, she will be hot, exciting, just for pulling this off

    look at ms mcmahon, the pro wrestler, in eggheaded CT, home of hedge fund managers

    doug schoen and the most accurate pollster in america, scott rasmussen, founder of espn, have out a new book

    its message---2010 is HOT, there's seething enthusiasm for politics and voting out there

    and its source---in 2010---is TEA

    it's an interesting observation, maybe

    either way, tho control of the senate may be at stake here for us, it's quite clear we are witnessing the awakening of a NEW gop

    paul miller beat lisa murkowski in the place where you can see russia

    that guy's gonna win, and his presence alone will stir the stuffy senate, he's that fresh

    mike lee beat bob bennett amongst the mormons who had been there for 20 years

    rubio in florida, angle in nevada, buck in colorado, paul in kentucky, the wrestler in connecticut---each ousted an incumbent or party pushed pet

    odonnell makes 8, and ovide lamontage in tonite's new hampshire will be 9

    the point---this is a NEW republican party being born, and it IS exciting

    macropolitically, coming close to taking the senate is just about as good

    we are not in position to initiate legislation much, regardless

    we are immovable in preventing what we abhor

    we are intimidating to the membership, running dominant in pennsylvania, michigan, ohio, missouri, arkansas, virginia, wisconsin, arizona, colorado, illinois...

    even CA and NY are in play, gubs, house, senate---the best blues can bet on is about breakeven, in their bastions

    it should be stunning, for example, that a TEA PARTIER, pat toomey, is actually running away with the senate in the KEYSTONE STATE

    what would reagan do, ask yourself

    there is no doubt the gip's disposition

    he would support whoever is strong locally, he would work with that winner, he would win him or her over, by being RIGHT and being able to communicate it---to the senator, to his or her constituents, to the american people

    really, we can root for one side, we can argue, but our lot largely is left to mere observation

    and thought

    party on!

    obama's goin down!

    The same people that say Donnell doesn't have a chance say Angle has no chance yet Angle and Reid are still within 2 points of each other in the polls

    ...What? It's not just "the same people", it's everyone who is actually paying attention. Angle isn't down by double-digits in the polls; O'Donnell is. And only hacks would say that Angle has NO chance; she may be a slight underdog but it's mostly a tossup.

    The democrats could only hope. If I was a democrat I'd be jumping for joy if that happened.

    However, in the next primary, if it's a choice between him or a Conservative, I'd most likely go with the Conservative. Cause I put principle over party power.
    By your logic, if the choice next Senate election is between Scott Brown and a Massachussetts (i.e. far-left) Democrat, you and any "principled" conservative should support the Democrat.

    If you really cared about principles, you'd want people with principles closest to yours in office. Wanting a Democrat to win rather than a moderate Republican is not principled, it is just nonsensical.

    Better a reformer than a chameleon.

    Go O'Donnell.

    PS. Don't you love the title of the article? That's Journolism at work.

    .
    Yea, it worked so well for the Democrats in 2006. Who could forget Sen. Lamont's integral role in advancing Obama's agenda?

    What polls?

    Reid-Angle dead heat cliffhanger in 3 new polls - The Political Eye - ReviewJournal.com

    Rasmussen's telephone survey of likely voters, with leaners included, showed Reid and Angle tied at 48 percent each.

    Another 2 percent prefered some other candidate in the race, and 3 percent were undecided.

    Two other surveys out Tuesday from Fox News and Reuters/Ipsos also showed the contest locked in a dead heat.

    Fox News had Angle at 45 and Reid at 44.

    Reuters/Ipsos showed Reid at 46 and Angle at 44.

    Re-read my post carefully. I explicitly said that Angle is NOT down by double-digits, and that the seat is a tossup.
