Tea Party candidate and Sarah Palin endorsee
Christine O'Donnell - a former chastity lobbyist
- has defeated
the longest-serving Congressman in Delaware's history by six percentage points to claim the Republican nomination for Vice President Biden's former Senate seat - despite Karl Rove's televised statements to Sean Hannity that she says "nutty things"
: It does conservatives little good to support candidates who, at the end of the day, while they may be conservative in their public statements, do not evince the characteristics of rectitude and truthfulness and sincerity and character that the voters are looking for.
I didn’t have many (or any) good things to say about Christine O’Donnell … but that ends now. The woman, whatever her faults, has to be given credit for having something that has been sorely lacking in the GOP’s Senate Caucus; Guts - with a big scarlet capital G. So finally, I do have something good to say about the lady - she took on an entrenched incumbent with a 10-to-1 monetary, a hostile media, not to mention a weak and comfortable on its knees DE GOP and walloped them all.
Which leads me to think that she just might have it in her to do it. Which means we owe her our support. Fighters are what we’ve been demanding for decades - we’ve just been given (another) one. So let’s get to work.
