The good news for Tea Partiers is they are officially a force to be reckoned with. The latest victory of Palin-backed candidate, Christine O’Donnell, has bested moderate  incumbent Rep. Rick Castle. Which is cool and all, except for one thing, she has put a sure thing Republican seat up for grabs. Translation: Democrats pick up a seat. Not the thing that the GOP was hoping for. Of course, this doesn’t bother most of the Tea Party folks, because they would rather thin out the herd than defeat the Democrats. And the Democrats (who need all the help they get) are deeply grateful. The GOP old guard is a little ticked off, though. Take Karl Rove who went all ballastic live on FOX News the night of the primary. So he met with candidate O’Donnell.

But Karl Rove is still not impressed, calling her “nutty” and unelectable. After taking heat for his comments from the right-wing, including Sarah Palin, Rove doubled down on his criticism of O’Donnell, when he said “She does not “evince the characteristics of rectitude and truthfulness and sincerity and character.” Yesterday Rove said, the Delaware voters have a lot of “questions” about her shady background, so “we’ll see.”

Of course, that is the basic difference between men like Karl Rove and the idealistic Tea Party gang. He is all about winning and the Tea Partiers are not. After all, once you win you are part of the political establishment––one of things the Tea Party is against.
