5. I was just thinking about Christine O'Donnell and how she destroyed the Delaware Republican Party.

Sean Hannity and the Tea Party came in and primaried Congressmen Mike Castle. He was possibly the last moderate republican in the country. The right wingers couldnít stand him. They were so stupid. They didnít know how we do politics in Delaware. For one thing, primaries were a fairly recent development. Usually the parties held conventions. The Delaware republicans expected that Castle would be the nominee to run for Bidenís vacated seat. He was popular, a nice guy and very reasonable for a republican. He had won 11 statewide elections, twice for governor, 9 times for Congress. Beau Biden would have been his opponent, but wanted to stay in his job as AG. County Councilman Chris Coons was to be the sacrificial lamb for the Dems. OíDonnell was so dumb she tried to debate Coons. We donít like carpetbaggers. So now we have the intelligent, well educated, dedicated Senator Coons. Mike Castle likely would have won that seat. Worked out well for Delaware, but the Republicans have yet to recover. Weíll have to see what this Witzke can do. Where is she from?
