Is everybody done now?

With respect to Christine O'Donnell and the hand-wringing right, Professor William Jacobson of Legal Insurrection absolutely nails it:

The left is doing to O'Donnell exactly what they did to Sharron Angle -- swamp her with accusations and nonsense in the days after the primary to keep her from organizing her campaign. The Nevada primary was months ago, so Angle had a chance to recover. O'Donnell doesn't have that luxury of time given the late primary. She needs to integrate millions of dollars in new cash, gear up with staff, and plan her attack.

With each of your self-righteous columns and snide blog posts, you become part of the problem not part of the solution.

The woman (at the time, a young woman) went on MTV and Maher and who knows where else, and said some things that she would not say now. For that sin you are ready to toss her overboard so that you can declare yourselves to have been wiser than the unwashed voters who elected her in the primary?

And we call the Democrats elitist snobs? Stop being so damn selfish. November is not about who was right or wrong in the primaries. If Castle had won, O'Donnell supporters would have rallied around him, or at least kept their mouths shut.

Look, Christine O'Donnell is that cute but wacky girlfriend we all had once back in the day who did and said some goofy stuff that was all completely harmless when looked at in its proper context.

Delaware primary results: O'Donnell won, Castle lost. This is perhaps an election cycle unlike anything we have ever seen so if there was ever an opportunity for O'Donnell to win, this would be it. Everybody just needs to quit whining and get onboard.

Let's Roll.

Yes the Left is trying to drown her in paperwork.

I'm following this story less and less. Like I care what the pundits have to say. They just talk to each other anyway.

KT, to that end Sarah Palin, you know, the dolt Sarah Palin, told O'Donnell to forget trying to address/refute the issues the national media cares about (witchcraft, whackin' it, etc.) and remember that she is trying to win the votes of Delawarians(?), i.e. this is a state race not a national one.

But in what would be a Palin-esque move, I half believe O'Donnell made up the whole witchcraft thing just to get the left lathered into a rabid frenzy.

I know I probably shouldn't be, but I'm actually becoming more interested in this race. As I alluded to in the post.... I used to date this girl.

Harrison, that's a great analogy. Can I use it?
