This is it for Castle, and here's why:

This is a CLOSED primary, so there won't be any Dems/independent shenanigans crossing over.

Christine just received endorsements from the NRA, Governor Palin, and now DeMint.

Castle and the Delaware GOP/NRSC are attacking Christine - not on the issues, but her supposed "unethical" behavior. Why? If Castle has it in the bag, why attack Christine?

Delaware conservatives I talked to said conservatives are JACKED. They have tons of lawn signs for Christine and are very enthusiastic.

Castle has been in government in one office or another since the mid-1960s. He picked a horrible year to run for Senate when people are pissed about establishment hacks and career politicians. Why didn't he run in 2006 or 2008?

STORM THE CASTLE! PARTY LIKE IT'S 1066!

As a caller to Rush's show said yesterday, all you have to do is look at Mike Castle's voting record. He's voted with the Democrats 99 percent of the time.

Castle represents the ruling class in Washington.  This is why they're needlessly dumping all over O'Donnell. O'Donnell represents the all-important filibuster vote.

I will be happy to be proven wrong on whether it is possible to wrest control of the GOP from Rockefeller Republicans.

Things are trending that way, but we need to watch our backs with regard to Schmidtheads and Steeley eyed functionaries, drones, and assorted dead souls who may show their Colins.

It's a Murderers' Row of conservatives supporting her in a closed primary with a bunch of angry voters.

Might as well be the 27 Yankees playing at home in front of a full house of angry fans.

Castle is through.

Sarah and DeMint are the big 2 this year.

Looking real good, but I’m not there and there are no numbers on a head to head except for the tea party express numbers that came out a week ago showing Christine down by 2 with likely voters.

I suspect that both Palin and DeMint got glimpse of some internal polling that showing the race neck and neck, and that they could push her over the top.

Otherwise I don’t think they’d get involved.

I heard Mike Castle on Hugh Hewitt today, and his entire pitch consist of “I’m the only kind of Republican that can win in Delaware”, it was really pathetic.

Why vote for Castle? What is the use of taking control of the Senate when you don’t have a working majority?

Hello RG!!!

Wow...have things changed in this past week or what?

Lookit, I still don’t know how things are going to turn out. I’m doing my best to prepare myself for disappointment.

But this thing that had been going on with Christine before this past week was just such a bummer.

I do consider myself a friend of Christine’s, in a fashion. I genuinely like this really nice and sweet lady and she adores my granddaughter. Hey, some things just are. Mike Castle tried to get to me through my granddaughter and it didn’t work. Another story for another day, ask me about it sometime.

But beyond that, it was like I’d spent my life loving my country, singing its tunes. I really believed that America was a great country that anyone could aspire to be anything.

So Christine O’donnell, a Christian woman, again, a genuinely very nice person, runs for a political office and worse than Russia could ever have been my own political party jumps on her, calls her names, declares her a nut, her supporters are “pathetic”.

They endorsed Christine last year as a throwaway candidate to run against Joe Biden but when she, silly woman, dared to go up against their darling Mike Castle...

...she had “money problems”. Implied in that term, written very plainly between the lines....we can read...”YOU MUST BE RICH TO BE A SENATOR YOU FOOL”.

Christine O’Donnell settled her money issues....I know the story on a lot of them but it’s no matter. Who amongst us low class hoi poilloi hasn’t had money problems? Do you think either Mike Castle or Joe Biden ever laid awake deep into a dark night, worried about funds not there, in need of help for not having a team of flackies to take care of the details, tossing, turning, worrying and hurting for lack of peace?

Rush Limbaugh kind of started it. He was very circumspect about it. He takes the position that he does not endorse primary candidates but he handled it well.

Cause we say THROW OUT THE BUMS! And all i could think was....WE CAN’T RID OF THE BUMS...the bums won’t go away. If we try to vote them out they beat up on a fair and decent person who only wants a chance to run for a lawful elected office but, smirk, smirk....she had “money issues”.

And it isn’t enough that the entrenched Mike Castles themselves beat up on the silly candidates that don’t know their place. You get a whole team of monkey hyenas, a team of what Mark Levin would call “back benchers”, nothing burgers of human beings who join in the stoning of this silly woman who had, insert distasteful grimace here...”money problems”.

I was demoralized. The bums have taken over the country and anybody thinks we can kick them out are dreaming, or so went my thoughts in my despair.

Like Rush said...maybe if we all got together and tried to get these people elected. Do any of us not have issues in our past that couldn’t be made into a way bigger deal than the normal stumbling blocks of life we all have? Does Mike Castle have a pristine, perfect past.

I was shocked and surprised at the Palin endorsement. Add the NRA and now Jim DeMint and all I can think of...if this Delaware race is not a great example of a RINO needing a kick to the curb...then there is no such thing.

Say a prayer this coming Tuesday.

Cause someday I want to proudly hold my granddaughter’s hand and walk into Senator O’Donnell’s office. I want to introduce her to a lady I’ve known since 2005 and who, I’d like to think, I helped get into the office.

By throwing the bum out.

Yeah, but Crist, Specter, Bloomberg, Scozzafava, McCain, and Graham are probably for Castle, so National Review and the Weekly Standard have gotten in line for Castle.
