It was gratifying to witness Christine O’Donnell win the Delaware republican primary over the socialist Mike Castle. The tea party has become a force to reckon with, and RINO’s are becoming an endangered species.
We conservatives who have given money to the Republican Party in the past finally feel vindicated. I stopped donating to the NRSC ever since the usual suspects in the establishment, backed candidates such as Lincoln Chaffee and Arlen Specter over their conservative rivals. I said no more after that.
The Washington insiders are quaking in their boots. The days of the elites looking down their noses at us plebeians is over.
The GOP establishment is taking the defeat of their chosen candidate hard. The realization of losing power over the electorate has stunned them, and their reaction to O’Donnell’s win is telling. Fox News Reports:
Republican aides told Fox News Tuesday that the National Republican Senatorial Committee will not be funding O'Donnell's general election campaign, leaving it up to Palin and the Tea Party Express to do the heavy lifting.
The NRSC issued a terse statement congratulating O'Donnell for her nomination "after a hard-fought primary campaign."
The Tea Party Express said it hoped the National Republican Senatorial Committee would reconsider its decision not to support O'Donnell.
"We encourage the NRSC to take a night off, get some sleep, and reconsider their rash statements," Tea Party Express spokesman Levi Russell said in a written statement.
"Wake up NRSC," he added. "The reason the Tea Party movement has grown into such a powerful force is because of the failures of establishment organizations such as yours to honor the principles of the Republican Party platform."You tried to force through the most liberal Republican in Congress on the voters of Delaware and they rejected you."
The NRSC finally acquiesced and will support Christine O’Donnell; to do otherwise would be financial suicide. The days of wine and roses are over for the GOP establishment. No longer will the tail wag this dog.
