    I'm not going to pile on all of O'Donnell's missteps, except to say that I'm positively giddy she was nominated. It's not often that a political party turns a guaranteed victory into a guaranteed defeat, for no reason other than ideological purity...especially when the electable candidate wasn't even all THAT ideologically unpure.

    If Republicans will settle for nothing less than a Senate full of Jim DeMints, then the only Republicans that will be elected are from states where people like Jim DeMint are popular. And that's simply not enough to form anything close to a majority. I wish the Senate was more liberal, but I'm a pragmatist. For example, I would never suggest that a Russ Feingold-like candidate mount a primary challenge against Ben Nelson, because I recognize that Ben Nelson is about the most liberal politician that could be elected from Nebraska. Republicans would do well to learn the same lesson.
    Well said!
    They're completely alienating the moderate majority with this nonsense; I don't know what they're hoping to accomplish, actually. It looks like political suicide to me.

    I don't get it. I looked in the mirror and checked my credit scores. I'm definitely not a suburban white woman.

    You can figure that from a credit score?

    we are getting tired of people who do what they think will win them elections rather than being consistent and sticking to principles.

    and the only reason why people call anti tax advocates "extreme" is because the dems have gone so far left. Barry Goldwater or Reagan would still be mainstream in the GOP, JFk and HHH would not be welcome in the dem party

    later folks

    So, I guess the new strategy is, act like a completely deranged wingnut during your campaign, and that way people will think your honest and upfront and not "saying what they want to hear merely to win the election"...?



    I guess we'll see how that one works out for y'all.

    for 20 years mike castle has been if not the most liberal member of the gop caucus, certainly one of just a handful

    before entering the house he was governor of the first state until he was term limited, at which point he arranged a corrupt bargain of his own---he assumed thomas carper's at large seat and carper took over in dover

    as such, mr castle became the embodiment of elite and entitled establishment insider, the very symbol of what is wrong with american politics

    good riddance

    the MOVEMENT which stormed mike's castle, while it may cost the gop biden's seat, is precisely what propels the refreshing transformation we are witnessing coast to coast, from florida to alaska

    indeed, when it comes to rhinos in general, look at what's going on in those two polar extremes, ie, talk to mr crist and ms murkowski

    even castle is extinct

    seeya in november, exactly one month from tomorrow

    also, look for the new unemployment figure coming out friday

    party on!

    ok, but most of your neighbors are taking their tea strong

    gallup TODAY: the enthusiasm gap in favor of the gop is THIRTEEN if voter turnout is hi, EIGHTEEN if it's low

    sorry, i spose
