Has Tea Party Gone Overboard?

100916bokloresTea Party candidate Christine O’Donnell upset Republican establishment fave Mike Castle in the Delaware U.S. Senate primary. The Tea Party says it’s about more than winning elections.  Establishment GOP bigwig, Karl Rove, says that’s a good thing because they just blew their chance of taking the Senate in November.  Here’s Karen Tumulty’s story in the Washington Post.

Nothing like taking your kid to a ball game.  Especially  if she gets knocked up by A Rod in the 7th inning.  That joke was an amusing crack about A Rod from Letterman’s fertile imagination but it came at the expense of Sarah Palin’s daughter.

One thing about  Palin that always appealed to me (besides the makeup) is that she used to be against that kind of stuff.

The day after criticizing Bush’s signing statements the president issued a signing statement of his own complaining about the earmarks he said he would never approve in the bill he was signing.  Got that?  Victor Davis Hanson does in this column.
