They picked the nutty even by Tea Party standards, Christine O'Donnell over the sensible and electable Mike Castle to contest VP Joe Niden's Senate seat. Last night even Karl Rove called ber 'nuts' much to the dismay of Sean Hannity.
Castle was the long time Republican lone Congressman from Delaware who beat his Democratic opponent by 23 percentage points despite Obama taking the state by 24 points. Castle is one of the most moderate GOP Congressman and actually believes that global warming is (a) a problem and (b) is man made. That was enough to doom him among the new GOP faithful.
Sen. John McCain garnered 155,000 votes in the 2008 election in Delaware. O'Donnell only needed the votes of 30,000 hardcore Republicans/Tea Partiers to win the primary.
Sarah Palin and others have already turned on Karl Rove and Mike Castle will not endorse O'Donnell.
O'Donnell might have a more polished TV presence than Sharron Angle in Nevada but this won't hide the fact that she is out there, far out there. She believes in complete sexual abstinence including masturnation, believes far too much money is being spent on finding a cure for aids, believes in creationism and is so paranoid she pokes around the bushes surrounding her house every night.
The Tea Party is making a lot of noice but they are still a small minority.
Here is video of rove and Hannity.
