    I asked which candidates would've been better for the Tea Party to endorse, not who they endorsed that you didn't like.

    Are you suggesting her primary opponent was more in line with Tea Party views? The person that the Fiscal Conservatism focused "Club for Growth" ranked as the least conservative Republican in congress? The one who voted "Yes" on stimulus? Yes on TARP? Yes on the auto bailouts? Who voted yes on extending unemployment benefits? Who voted yes on Minimum Wage hikes? Voted no to eliminate the death/estate tax?

    While there are things I like about Castle, what fiscally about him apparently would've made him a better choice for the Tea Party than O'Donnell? Unless you're suggesting Coons would've been the better choice for what the Tea Party cares about with regards to fiscal conservatism?

    Against Mike Castle? I think the general conclusion was pretty much any other Republican could have beat him.

    They dress up like the Founding Fathers, talk about reducing the size of government and having more individual freedom. That's extreme to many liberals.

    The re-branding of the GOP after the 2008 election.

    Angry, frustrated middle income people with limited critical thinking skills and deep-seeded bigoted ideas... all ginned up by ideologues and demagoguery.

    Fear, paranoia, and ignorance run riot.

    So essentially you have no other name of another Republican that had stepped forward as interested in Delaware of challenging Castle in the primaries, so the Tea Party is a religious organization because some unknown, unnamed, unseen candidate wasn't who they supported instead of O'Donnell?

    I voted "good" and......

    A. I believe Obama was born in Hawaii.
    B. The health care law will have to ration health care.
    C. The super-rich deserve what they have earned honestly.
    D. All people and companies should pay a fair percentage of taxes with no loopholes allowed.
    E. Only a handful of Muslims are radicals, comparatively.

    I have many friends who are tea partiers and agree with everything I just said. So, you're misguided.

    Essentially I am too lazy to bother looking up candidates who lost in 2010 and the people who may have won had they run in their place. I think you know that nobody gives a crap enough to bother to go through that much work and so you are trying to use it as a tactic to win the debate, but really you haven't presented any evidence to the contrary so my argument still stands.
