This is a disgusting fit of pique by the same crowd that handed super majorities to the Democrats in the first place.
Foxnews is reporting that the NRSC is refusing to back Christine O’Donnell in the general election even though she is the clear choice of Delaware Republicans.
Party fractures on full display, Republican aides told Fox News Tuesday that O’Donnell would not be getting national fundraising support. State party leaders had warned that O’Donnell cannot compete against Democrat Chris Coons and vigorously backed Castle, a nine-term congressman and former governor.
This, more than a reflection on the O’Donnell campaign, shows the very real disdain that establishment Republicans have for us unwashed–tea-partiers and conservatives. I was ambivalent about the O’Donnell campaign before, now I want her to win in the worst way.
The establishment Republican party, maybe even more than the Democrat party, is one of the main obstacles to real reform in Washington. The American people are demanding reform but the establishment doesn’t care. They want to shut out real conservatives where they can and co-opt them where they succeed.
Many people think that 2010 is another 1994. I hope not. I don’t want another Republican takeover until conservatives have successfully taken over the Republican party. This is the message that the rank and file sent in Delaware tonight, this is why they sent the progressive RINO Castle packing. But they still don’t get the message.
I don’t know if O’Donnell is a good candidate or not. But at this point, I don’t care. I want her to win. Scratch that–I want the Republican establishment to lose.
I am tired of Republican lip service and betrayals. I want a purge. I want a witch-hunt. I want them all gone. Every last one of them. I want litmus tests. I want lots of litmus tests. I want to fold the big tent. I want to burn the big tent. I want conservatives darn it!!
