Looks like she’s had a lot of practice: “Tea party” dipshit Christine O’Donnell won Delaware’s Repugnican Party primary today after having used sleazy, homophobic tactics. O’Donnell is such an unhinged wingnutty dingbat that her victory today virtually assures a Democratic win for the state’s U.S. Senate seat in November.
“Tea party” candidate Christine O’Donnell, whose main campaign tactic against her opponent, Repugnican Party establishment candidate U.S Rep. Mike Castle, was to paint him (correctly or incorrectly) as gay, won the Repugnican Party primary for a seat in the U.S. Senate for Delaware today.
The Sarah Palin-Quayle-endorsed O’Donnell — who shouted out to Castle, “Mike, this is not a bake-off; get your man-pants on” (whatever “man-pants” are) and whose campaign ad indicated that Castle has cheated on his wife with another man — is sooo incredibly bad that the state’s Repugnican Party says that it won’t support her for the general election. Reports The Associated Press:
Despite her win, O’Donnell will enter the fall campaign as an underdog to Chris Coons, a county executive who was unopposed for the Democratic nomination.
Republican officials said as the votes were being counted the party would not come to her aid if she won the primary, citing a string of disclosures about her personal finances and other matters.
The state party chairman, Tom Ross, said recently she “could not be elected dogcatcher.”
I can’t see “tea party” dipshit Sharron “Second Amendment Remedies” Angle winning the U.S. Senate seat for Nevada in November, either.
It’s long been recognized that while wingnuts often can do well in Repugnican primaries, they often struggle in general elections, as the general electorate doesn’t share their wingnuttery.
I wish the “tea party” many continued victories in Repugnican Party primary elections in the future.
