At least he did not stab her in the back as the Republicans and pseudo “conservatives did. "She was a poor candidate and unqualified", they shouted. If she was a poor candidate, why did she get more votes than your guy? Also, if she was unqualified, why did the election board approve her candidatecy?

"Castle would have beaten Coons", they wail. If Castle, who had no baggage, was a perfect candidate,and had excelent qualifications, as implied by Establishment Republicans could not beat her, who was "unqualified, a poor candidate, and had baggage" ,how could he have beaten Coons who beat her?

But, that is water under the bridge now. Coons is the Delaware Senator. The Democrats are happy. The Establishment Republicans are happy to the extent that a Tea Party supported candidate is not in the Senate. And the Freedom loving citizens of Delaware can take solice in fact that the Senate has one less RINO.

I could very well be mistaken, but my understanding of the DRINO Alliance's plan for Delaware was that Castle would win and then Biden's son would be able to run against an R when the rest of the two years remaining on this "fill the vacant seat" term is completed. It was supposed to be a wink, wink, nudge, nudge between the D's and the R's, i.e. "Hold this for us, we'll be right back".

Now the Son of VP (Veritable Pinhead) will have to knock out a fellow D in a primary (or trust Coons can be "persuaded" to step aside) before taking his rightful place in the slow learner section of the US Senate. Probably a foregone conclusion that Junior would defeat O'Donnell in two years anyway, but in the meantime we can at least take some pleasure in seeing this plan blown up by a primary endorsement from none other than Grandma (no disrespect intended, I think Sarah would like the name) Grizzly.
