The most incompetent state Republican apparatus in the nation is Delaware's GOP, which reportedly conspired with Democrat insiders to let Vice President Joe Biden’s son, Beau Biden, run unopposed for Attorney General.
Further, the Delaware GOP has gone so far as to partner with Mike Castle's campaign, filing a complaint with the Federal Election Commission (FEC) that alleges Tea Party conservatives illegally colluded with Christine O'Donnell in the Senate Primary.
Well, that should engender lots of grass-roots support.
Now Mike Castle's Beltway cocktail buddies at The Weekly Standard have pulled The New York Times' old Al-Qaqaa trick: publishing a lengthy, seemingly "scathing" assault on Christine O'Donnell that contains two allegations:
• O'Donnell once sued an ex-employer for gender discrimination.
• O'Donnell is said to have claimed she took classes at Princeton.
Now, I'll tell you what Christine O'Donnell didn't do:
• She didn't vote for the DISCLOSE Act, the goal of which is to suppress free speech by conservatives, while leaving unions and other Democrat support groups unscathed.
• She didn't vote with the most liberal Democrats over the issue of guns and earn an F from the NRA.
• She didn't vote with Barack Obama 60% of the time including for Cap-and-Trade.
No, Christine O'Donnell didn't do any of those things. Rep. Mike Castle (R-INO) -- who The Weekly Standard calls a "moderate" -- did.
If by "moderate", they mean that Castle doesn't believe in the Bill of Rights' First, Second or Tenth Amendments then, yes, Castle is a moderate.
The Weekly Standard really hurts its credibility and reputation with tripe like this. As Erick Erickson tweeted earlier, "Sorry folks, but if we need Mike Castle for a Senate majority, we do not need a Senate majority."
Update: Dan Riehl: "Why No Interest In Mike Castle's Corrupt Lobbyist Problems?"
