Lol, I told you.

And now we have it: a very clear choice. Maybe I’m the only one who is tired of parceling beans, putting some in this pile, others in that, and then counting up the totals to see which has more… A fight between Mike Castle and Chris Coons would be just that…

Instead, I wanted a clear fight, one that doesn’t even have to go nasty-ad personal to make the news… IN FACT, THE PERSONAL IS SOOO BORING, compared to the energy of what this battle of ideas will generate.

We have: Abortion versus Choice
Low Taxes versus Large Debt
Religion versus Science
Family values versus Economic Growth
Slashing Services versus Helping Those Less Fortunate
Carbon Fuels versus Nonpolluting Ones
Mommy versus Dad.

Lucky us. We have a sexy Mom (oo-la-la) and sexy Dad (hubba hubba) fighting it out… Anyway…..

Here are my predictions. This election will be way, way too close to call. It will be so close that the green and blue Castle-lites will quickly forgive and eagerly join in with the O’Donnell Blues…

This election will be the most exciting one in most living Delawarean’s memories. It will involve multiple local visits by the next presidential elections biggest names.

This election will redefine political boundaries for the next twelve years… Not officially, but this one set’s up the next election coming up in two years.

Most important, it opens up the dialogue of ideas
. The official Republican Party is dead. That’s the party of platitudes, or platypussys, (which is it? I forgot. )

Real people put in a candidate, one not supported by the party, one even disparaged by the party, one horribly ridiculed vociferously by the party… and guess what? …..

The people said ” yeah, that may be so…. but she is still much better than anything you got!!!! ..”

That’s a pretty damning indictment.

Christine now has the valid claim to be the one being of the people, for the people and (to win an election) by the people. To go against that, no matter who the opponent, is a very scary force to reckon with. Although oblivious to it now, Coons is is in trouble, and had better get his good ideas out there right now while Christine is reeling from her victory over the storming of the Bastille….

Likewise, everyone official who dissed her, whether blogger, think tank, or otherwise, obviously has interests that counteract those held dear-to-heart by real people. They have been proven to speak with forked tongues.

The People have spoken, just like they did with Obama. Each might cringe to be associated with the other, but both were fresh candidates in their respective races. If one looks at the big picture stretching over two parties, one hears the People saying “the old is not working. Let’s do something different…. ”

I’ve been calling for the death of the Republican Party, and so far, after each election after their peak in 2004, I have been correct; that party’s power has shrunk exponentially. However, Christine, has rejuvenated Conservatism in this state better than anything I could have done or said. For they( conservatives) are tired of being put down, stomped on, dismissed, pooh-poohed, cussed at, sexually intimidated, beaten up, suckered punched, laughed at, lip flipped, weasel wedged, wet Willied, bitch slapped, nipple tucked, and then be dismissed as inconsequential by a handful of men in Greenville with way too much money?

And now, conservatism has found a natural outlet to unleash all that energy pent up since the official Republican Party decided to cater to millionaires instead of Conservatives. Like a tiny wedge in a sand dam, all that pent up energy, will change the landscape these next few weeks ..

But will Conservatism work? Ahh, that is another question and will be one debated in another post.. Right now, I have to get back and celebrate with the lovely Ms. O’Donnell, her coming out party… 🙂
