The pundits seem to see the tea parties versus the GOP as a struggle between two organizations. I don't see it that way at all.
The tea parties are not organizations. It is a movement of those who want less government, less spending and lower taxes.
I don't know who is going to win the primary in Delaware today. I understand that the GOP wants to protect its candidate, because the GOP wants to win in November. The tea party candidate Christine O'Donnell is clearly more aligned with the tea party principles, however flawed she may be personally. She is not more flawed than the RINO Mike Castle, because Castle is, well a RINO.
The GOP argues quite reasonably that Mr. Castle has a better chance of winning in November. Quite so. But Castle must be punished for his liberal votes by being voted out of Congress. Maybe that lets the Democrat win this race in November. I say, so be it. The next time, the GOP won't be so eager to get behind the RINO. The GOP needs to learn that lesson.
