As ruling class Republicans sulk, O'Donnell runs and Palin lurks

Here are some bedrock facts that received no shrift at all in the hullaballoo over Christine O'Donnell's decisive capture of the Republican nomination for U.S. Senate in Delaware.

Led by stalwarts such as Karl Rove, Charles Krauthammer, a posse of writers for National Review and Senate Republican leaders, the anti-O'Donnell coalition came down squarely on the side of Mike Castle, whose RINO (Republican in Name Only) credentials are impeccable.

Castle, who is Delaware's sole representative in the House, even voted for the cap-and-trade bill, which, in the midst of a long and relentless recession, would have imposed new costs on American manufacturers and further reduced exports.

This is not vaporous economics. It is bedrock. Establishment Republicans preferred Castle, whose vote could, at some future date, enact cap-and-trade, a thinly conceived scam that would enrich corporations such as General Electric, which have bet the farm on a green future even though the scientific evidence underlying the green movement continues to fade toward irrelevance.

In other words, the Republican establishment was willing to gamble on a RINO who has signed on to a social engineering scheme whose purpose is to further empower government and force Americans to drive cars they don't want and live the way government bureaucrats say they should live.

Delaware's voters gave the ruling class Republicans the response they deserved. Her name is Christine O'Donnell. If the ruling class Republicans don't wise up soon, they will get another answer they won't like. Her name is Sarah Palin.
