in Delaware's GOP primary. Check her out.

Yips! From Robbo: The sources I've been reading suggest that even if she wins the nomination, she can't possibly win in the general election. (This is Delaware, after all.) Thus, the contrarian in me wonders whether a primary victory wouldn't be something of a Pyrrhic indulgence.

Pity, too, because she's so hawt.

LMC UPDATE: Politico calls it for O'Donnell at 53-46. Note even close. Since the pros are throwing around "electability" in the general election and we do not live in Delaware, I will go with the LLama Hotness Test--Christine wins in a landslide.

Yips! Back from Robbo: Wow! Hey, congrats and all the rest. Seriously. I mean no gratuitous criticism. If she can hit the less than three meter target shaft, then may the Force be with her!

Basically it's a RINO vs. a flake. We (and by "we" I mean the USA, not the GOP) need better candidates.

So it's the flake. Heck, Minnesota sent (fraudulently) Al Franken to the Senate, she can't be worse on our side. Go Christine!

Remember, the folk calling her unelectable in the general are the same folks that said she could never beat Castle. For me the real value of her win is to expose the two faced petulance of Castle and the Republican party operatives. Yeah, tell me again how I need to be tolerant of the Big Tent.

I much prefer O'Donnell's positions on the issues to Castle's. I was delighted when Buck won in CO, Lee in Utah, Paul in KY, Miller (especially) in AK, and even Angle in NV.

But . . . O'Donnell is unfit for public office. She's paranoid and delusional. It's not clear that she knows when she's telling the truth and when she isn't. Her professional life and financial life are a chaotic mess. In terms of personal qualifications, think Alvin Greene, minus the event that got him indicted. (Aw, I know, that's overstating it a bit.)

Count me out. I'm glad I don't live in Delaware, because I couldn't vote for either O'Donnell or Coons.

ScurvyOaks, didn't you realize that now those are requirements for elected office?
