taking out GOP
They built a monster, now it's eating
Arms linked, Senate candidate
Christine O'Donnell and her conservative backers kick up their heels
and clap to the strains of an original song with lyrics befitting a tea
"Look out Washington, D.C., 'cause we are on a roll
and we're rocking across this country with a message to be told."
It's a tune that's unnerving the Republican establishment in Delaware,
which fears being felled by swift kicks from O'Donnell — and tea
Not long after Teabagger Joe Miller stunned the Alaska GOP, the
Republican establishment is furiously
trying to avoid a similar outcome in the Delaware primary on Tuesday.
Republican leaders, top strategists
and even the Delaware state GOP chairman have taken the unusual step of
openly working to defeat
O'Donnell and ensure the nomination of their preferred candidate,
nine-term Rep. Mike Castle.
Republicans see Castle as their best chance of winning the seat long
held by Joe Biden.
The moderate Castle is a former governor and has been the state's lone
congressman since 1993.
But O'Donnell, who has lost twice in statewide races, won't be cowed.
"We cannot elect any more liberals to Washington, D.C., especially ones
the banner of being a Republican. It is an honor to be a Republican,"
she told supporters.
Establishment Republicans have been relentless, calling O'Donnell
unelectable, a fraud and a liar.
But in a challenge to the GOP leadership and in a boost to O'Donnell,
GOP Sen. Jim DeMint (SC)
just came out with an endorsement saying she will "stand strong for the
principles of freedom."
So, Jim DeMint is working against the Republican party?
That's great news - who can we turn
Maybe the Teabaggers will be this year's Naders.
