Do not expect national Republicans to rally around Christine O'Donnell and infuse much needed campaign cash into her campaign for Delaware's open Senate seat. The Tea Party favorite upset establishment backed Rep. Mike Castle Tuesday evening, and GOP officials are concerned that O'Donnell has no chance of winning the seat – once held by Vice President Biden for 26 years – in November.
Last year, the pundits told me that Marco Rubio wouldn't win the primary in Florida, so the NRSC endorsed Charlie Crist.
Earlier this year, the pundits told me that a Republican couldn't win Teddy Kenney's old seat. Republican Scott Brown now serves Massachusetts.
Several months ago, the pundits told me that Rand Paul was a long shot for the Senate. He is now looking at another 'Rand Slide' to win the general.
A few months ago, the pundits told me that Bennett was the best we could hope for in Utah. Now, Bob Bennett will be out of a job come next year.
Last month, the pundits told me that Joe Miller was just a long shot. And he beat incumbent Lisa Murkowski.
And just yesterday, the pundits told me that Christine O'Donnell was unelectable. Next year, Mike Castle will join Murkowski and Bennett at the unemployment office.
Yet, Sarah Palin and the Tea Parties are a fringe movement who are ineffectual and out of touch. And being a moderate Republican is the only way you can win. Or something. At least that's what I'll be hearing in the MFM.
It's a big red wave that's coming this year.

So much for party unity.
But this puts Rove's temper tantrum into perspective:
Rove Tried to Cut a Deal For Castle With Tea Party- Teaparty News- The Collier Brothers
Sources at the Christine O’Donnell victory party revealed to The Freedomist that in December of last year Karl Rove met with Tea Party leaders in Dover, Delaware trying to get them to cut a “deal” in which they would leave Mike Castle alone and NOT support O’Donnell.
After being told in how many elections to shut up and vote for the liberal Republican for the sake of unity, it's now time for it to work the other way around and. . . Oh. Wait.
A Rep. Mike Castle (R-Del.) campaign source confirmed to The Hill late Tuesday that the longtime congressman will not be endorsing Christine O'Donnell.
