Breathes there a soul who doesn't love the editorial page of the Wall Street Journal?

Who has not been delighted by National Review and its National Review Online?

Well, yes, actually. Lots of souls, undoubtedly the finest of liberals and left-wingers in America.

So to disagree with our friends at the WSJ or NRO is something we do in this space with some care


The Journal has lifted the editorial lamp to shine it on Delaware's Republican Congressman Mike Castle, engaged in what was once thought to be a sure-thing walk-in-the-park primary win in preparation for a sure-thing walk-in-the-park win of Vice President Joe Biden's old Senate seat. Mr. Castle is a career GOP politician, a liberal Republican as they say in the trade, who has also served as Delaware's governor, among other political sinecures.

Castle's problem, much discussed here and lots of places these days, is conservative activist Christine O'Donnell. Willing to nominate her for the Senate when Castle didn't have the nerve to take on Biden directly (losing is never a winner with some), now that the seat is open she is being given the bum's rush. In the words of the Journal editorial, O'Donnell is a "two-time loser statewide" and "an itinerant conservative commentator and activist."



in fact Republican and Democratic office holders and their retinues show a similar presumption to dominate and fewer differences in tastes, habits, opinions, and sources of income among one another than between both and the rest of the country. They think, look, and act as a class."

Like a fraternity, this class requires above all comity -- being in with the right people, giving the required signs that one is on the right side, and joining in and despising the Outs.

You can bet your sweet pea picking ass that the northeastern blue blood Rockefeller country club Republican despise outsiders that are not in their little fraternity. Conservatives scare the shit out of them. Therefore, the good old boys in the Republican party are going to go all out to defeat Christine O'Donnell.
Conservatives and Tea Party candidates better understand that these so called moderate Republicans do not want to go to Washington to change the system. They will wind up pissing off Independents and the Repub party will go down in flames in 012.

Christine O'Donnell CAN'T fucking win. We need Mike Castle to have a chance at control of the senate. A liberal republican who votes with us 50% of the time is better than a liberal democrat who votes with us 0% of the time.

Delaware has NO conservative ground swell movement and hasn't in the last few generations.
