    may very well be the reason that Democrats retain control of the house in 2010.

    Most especially in Delaware where The Tea Party Candidate, Christine O'Donnell, toppled veteran Rep. Michael Castle. Ms. O'Donnell has a checkered record included her false claims (that she had a college degree, that she defeated Biden in two of the state's three counties in 2008); irregular finances (including a near-foreclosure, an IRS tax lien and a total reported 2009 income of $5,800); unusual public statements (she's against masturbation and she believes political rivals are stalking her); and a multimillion-dollar sex discrimination lawsuit against a former employer, and is considered unelectable in a generally recognized Blue State by many Republicans.

    Tea Party Coups: O'Donnell for Senate in Delaware, Paladino for New York Governor

    In the wake of Tuesday’s results, a state that would have almost certainly been a pick-up for the GOP is now likely to stay with the Democrats, making it more difficult for Republicans to win the 10 seats necessary to take back control of the Senate.

    “We were looking at 8 to 9 seats in the Senate, we are now looking at 7 to 8 in my opinion,” said a visibly-unhappy Karl Rove on Fox News after the race was called for O’Donnell Tuesday night. “This is not a race we’re going to be able to win.”

    Other senior Republicans were even more direct about what the nomination of O’Donnell, who is widely viewed as a flawed candidate with little general election appeal, meant.

    “This makes the road much steeper for Republicans to win back the Senate because this was a seat they had counted on,” said former Rep. Tom Davis (R-Va.), a former House campaign committee chairman.

    Every calculation of the GOP winning the needed 10 seats was predicated on Castle being the nominee and winning the seat formerly held by Vice-President Joe Biden

    The Republican Party has become a Party Of Wimps

    America is in big trouble under this president and under the "Horrible Pelosi Gang"

    The Tea Party Is Growing Daily, our economy, our culture and our way of life is being destroyed by socialist, far left wing fools, The Tea Party's have awakened that sleeping giant.

    If Lovely Michelle is running around the country telling people to stop using Salt you know The Dingobats are in big trouble.

    The Invasion Of America By The Illegal Aliens has much to do with the rise of the Tea Party, many of the Republican Leaders joined the Slobbering Democrats and just looked the other way while America was being Invaded and the people will not forget that, two of the biggest Republican Cowards who held hands with the DoGooding democrats were GW Bush and crazy old John McCain (both of these rats just looked the other way during the invasion)

    These people aren't truly conservative, they're truly crazy. Someone like Bob Dole was a true conservative.

    Cool, so you get to define conservatives now? I thought the conventional wisdom was this is a "center-right" country. Optimally, then, the Democrats are center and the Republicans are the right... right? So perhaps this huge progressive shift to the left by the Democrats really has pissed everyone off? Maybe, just maybe, this is the realignment they thought was happening in 2008 when they were told Obama was a centrist.

    You mean when you don't reclaim the Senate on account of having nominated fruitloops like Christine O'Donnell?? Yeah, I'll sure be enjoying that. Then again, that's the type of thing that usually happens when you let stupid people vote.

    Racism elected this a$s hole, but everybody except Geraldine Ferarro was afraid to say it, Ferarro destroyed herself by having the courage to say it.

    Nah. If anything racism hurt Obama in the general election more than it helped.

    The days of the establishment are over. Establishment candidates everywhere are going down (oops, not Charlie Rangel). The people are speaking. They're saying that your votes, and your record, are what you will be held accountable for. If your record is suspect, then you're out, and someone else is coming in to replace you. I personally love that. I've always preferred a person, or party, stay true to it's principles, even if it means losing an election. Winning by any means possible, is how we get to where we are today. I don't want politicians who think they know what's best for the people who voted them in. I want politicians who work for the people that elected them.

    I must say, it was a treat to see Karl Rove, the ultimate establishment tool, whine like a sissy at the fact that his establishments puppets are dropping like flies. Give the Tea Party credit, they are voting on principles, and for the candidates that they believe are not part of the status quo (establishment). Even if you don't agree with their politics, such a principled standing in today's day and age, is to be applauded. They'd rather lose with the candidate they trust, than win with the one they don't.

    No irony there. I wouldn't call anyone who voted for Obama or McCain stupid because of their vote.

    However, a person who would willingly vote for Christine O'Donnell or Sharron Angle is the kind of person whose driveway doesn't quite reach the road, if you know what I mean.

    I have no problem with voting for "anti establishment" candidates. But that's not a license to just go ahead and elect any yahoo into a position of authority.

    Further, I take issue with labeling these 'baggers as anything other than what they are: slightly more populist, slightly less intelligent Republicans. Period.

    13 i've heard this women, i've heard palladino, they're not "normal" as far as normal falls in a bell curve. They're way out there, they're speaking to fringe elements, not main stream America.
