Tea Party Power
A Mere Pimple on the Trunk of the Elephant

The most recent example is in Delaware, where despite being outspent 32 to 1, insurgent candidate Christine O'Donnell trumped nine-term GOP Congressman Michael Castle by 65 percent to 35 percent for the GOP Senate nomination.
This is truly funny. Long time and high name recognition elected official Castle spent 32 times as much money as the newcomer O'Donnell. 32 TIMES! He got whomped by a two to one margin. TWO TO ONE! It was not even close.
Yet all the 'ruling class' Republicans, including pimps like 'Tokyo Karl' Rove and 'Prince Charles" Krauthammer, just don't get it. They still think big government and entitlement handouts are the roads to political success.
