Sour Grapes for Mid-Term Losers

Victory has many fathers, but defeat is an orphan, they say. Another difference is that only defeat requires a scapegoat: “The Tea Party movement really is quite a bit different than the old Republican conservative movement,” [Delaware loser Mike] Castle said. “They’re more than willing to take out Republicans, call us Republicans in name only, […]

The Endless Delaware Post-Mortem

The day after the Delaware primary, I asked, “Is this really about 2012?” It seemed to me that many ruling-class Republicans — especially those aboard the Mitt Romney 2012 bandwagon — were attacking Christine O’Donnell as a proxy for Sarah Palin. Given the extraordinarily good news on the House side, with the GOP gaining 63 […]

No Regrets in Delaware

DOVER, Delaware — Christine O’Donnell did not merely defeat Mike Castle in Tuesday’s Senate primary. She beat the Republican establishment, both nationally and in Delaware, and she beat a veritable army of naysayers who said she couldn’t do it. . . . — “This Changes Everything,” The American Spectator, Sept. 15, 2010 The other day, […]

More unfortunate fallout today from the Delaware Senate campaign, a subject about which I know a lot but have said relatively little in recent weeks.

MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell Admits: ‘I Am a Socialist. And, Yeah, I Checked Out Those Demi Lovato Bikini Pics, Too.’

Wait. Maybe I need to double-check that quote: O’Donnell was arguing on “Morning Joe” with Glenn Greenwald, who accused him of “trying to blame ‘the Left’ and ‘liberalism’ for the Democrats’ political woes.” O’Donnell responded: “Glenn, unlike you, I am not a progressive. I am not a liberal who is so afraid of the word […]

Dear Ace: ‘A Choice, Not an Echo’

PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. — OK, after the last post, I promised I was going to go back to sleep, but somebody in the comments said that Ace of Spades was “bitching and moaning . . . that the tea party cost us DE et al.” Because I didn’t see the aforesaid bitching and moaning, I can’t address […]

Christine O’Donnell: We The People Of The First State

by Smitty Screw Comcast to the wall. One hopes that the ballot box verdict in a few hours brings the jolly bollocking they merit. In the meantime, set aside my rant and take the time to ensure this video has more viewers as a result of their perfidy than it otherwise would have: We the […]

234 Years Later, Obama Hardly Resembling Washington

by Smitty Not quite 234 years ago, original Tea Partier and future first POTUS George Washington crossed the Delaware River to put the hurt on forces of the Ruling Class overlords encamped at Trenton. A couple centuries later, and things are reversed. Now, via AmericanGlob the POuTUS has become the Ruling Class overlord, and must […]
