Christine O'Donnell, Chris Coons "bury hatchet"

Christine O'Donnell and her victorious opponent in the Delaware senate race, Democrat Chris Coons, campaigned fiercely against each other during the midterms. But now they've buried the hatchet, quite literally.

The Tea Party darling and the senator-elect buried a hatchet — actually, they put a small ax in a box of sand — in the southern Delaware hamlet of Georgetown on Thursday, the AP reported (via The Huffington Post) in line with a time-honored state tradition.

As policies of Delaware state politics dictate, the senate race contenders took part in a ceremonial horse-drawn carriage and classic car parade, which preceded the hatchet burying.

The expression "to bury the hatchet" evolved from a Native American expression for peacemaking and, ceremonially at least, Coons and O'Donnell were cordial. "Coons gave a thumbs-up signal when asked how he and O'Donnell were getting along," the AP noted.

She needs to watch her back. A hug might have a knife.

Every R that lost the last election, in that climate, was by defintion a ‘terrible candidate’.

No sarcasm involved here. They need to go away, now.

Maybe, it’s time to do that to save our Republic.
