What startles in the Karl Rove declaration that there is a “lesson” in the defeat of Christine O’Donnell is that he simply doesn’t get it.
O’Donnell moved the conservative ball in Delaware forward — big time. As with Goldwater in 1964 or Reagan in 1968 and 1976, or Pat Toomey in 2004 and in examples from one end of the country to the other over the years… her decision to not accept the rabid ideology of extreme-statism in GOP clothes has held fast. Mike Castle was not a conservative. End of story. He had every intention of continuing to pursue the statist agenda (Cap and Trade but one item) if elected. He — and his Delaware GOP Establishment supporters — were the real ideologues here. They were and are about power. That’s it. That’s all. Just as is true of Lisa Murkowski in Alaska and so on.
Christine O’Donnell took the heat for conservative principles.
She lost tonight. To which the answer has to be: so what? Was the conservative agenda advanced? Yes. Indubitably yes.
Ms. O’Donnell deserves conservative thanks.
Karl Rove is setting the boundaries for a very serious discussion to come.
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
