Welcome to the New G. O. Tea


Republican leaders were scrambling Wednesday to unify their party in the wake of a nasty GOP primary in Delaware that knocked Rep. Mike Castle (Del.), their top recruit, out of the race.

Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) told The Hill Wednesday that he will contribute campaign funds to Christine O’Donnell, who in narrowly defeating Castle may have given Democrats an advantage in the general election.


McConnell downplayed the notion that contentious GOP primaries have exposed disunity within his party.

Then he grimaced and puked in his Turtle Chow.

O’Donnell’s victory came despite opposition from the state and national Republican leadership. Polls suggested Castle would defeat Democrat Chris Coons in November, but that O’Donnell would lose in the general election. The Cook Political Report on Wednesday shifted the seat from likely Republican to likely Democrat.


National Republican Senatorial Committee Chairman John Cornyn (R-Texas), who did not offer a statement Tuesday night reacting to O’Donnell’s surprise win, on Wednesday pledged financial support for O’Donnell.

Cornyn announced the campaign committee would send O’Donnell a $42,000 check on Wednesday.


The pledges of support mark a dramatic turnaround by GOP leaders who actively opposed O’Donnell’s candidacy.

The race, however, left a bitter taste with Castle. Since losing, he has refused to endorse O’Donnell in the general election and his campaign has questioned O’Donnell’s honesty and integrity.


Senate Republican leaders have watched several of their favored candidates go down in flames in Republican primaries this year.

In addition to Castle, Sen. Bob Bennett (R) in Utah, Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R) in Alaska, Secretary of State Trey Grayson in Kentucky, Jane Norton in Colorado, former state party chairwoman Sue Lowden in Nevada and Florida Gov. Charlie Crist (I) all failed to appeal to GOP primary voters.

Some of these primaries have left bad blood between the candidates.

Murkowski has not endorsed Joe Miller, the GOP Senate candidate in Alaska, and is even mulling an independent bid as a write-in candidate.

The same has been true in primaries where the establishment-backed candidate prevailed.

J.D. Hayworth, who ran a hard-fought campaign against Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), has yet to publicly back his former opponent.

Several of these primary races have created divisions between Republicans in Washington, most notably between party leaders and Sen. Jim DeMint (R-S.C.), chairman of the conservative Senate Steering Committee.

It has also pitted GOP leaders against former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin (R).

DeMint and Palin endorsed O’Donnell last week, despite the strong opposition of GOP leaders to her campaign.

DeMint was an early supporter of GOP nominee Marco Rubio in Florida and Ken Buck, who defeated Norton in a bruising primary in Colorado.

DeMint also quickly endorsed Mike Lee after he defeated Bennett in Utah, and Joe Miller after he beat Murkowski in Alaska.


DeMint made waves when he announced his support in early May for Tea Party-backed nominee Rand Paul in the Kentucky Senate race. DeMint’s announcement came a day after McConnell endorsed Grayson.

  1. Poor baby elephant 😥 it’s just a critter.

    The GOP id has taken control, and it ain’t pretty.

    As much as I despise the politics of these far right loonies, I’m glad they’re all out there busting the chops of the GOPer establishment, causing Yertle to upchuck in his turtle chow and lining up behind the Princess as she leads them over the cliff. Those who lost the primary races deserve to be out of office anyway and I couldn’t work up a tear for them if you put a gun to my head.

    Now for the Dems, DON’T SCREW THIS UP! It’s being served up on a silver platter.

  3. I’m so glad you used that photo of PalinLite for the poster. Had seen it earlier on Rachel and knew it would be a great addition to the “three invisible dicks” collection. Too bad they had to do in Dumbo but they will be eating each other before this is all over, excepting Christine of course. You can certainly see from todays news excerpts that there is trouble at the mill! Now we can only sit back with the popcorn and see how it all plays out. Will Miller ever read the statehood provisions of Alaska or shave that “i’ve been sleeping in a dumpster for a week” beard? Will Palidino of the Palamino get the much sought endorsement of the gal who pleasures the horse? And lastly, will the latest media sensation, the chatterbox who sucks all the words out of a room, ever get laid? Will she Bite The Big One??

  4. Saw a clip of Michael Steele blathering on about how the GOP & Tea Party are *all one*.
    What bullshit! The whole theme of the tea party was that the GOP & DEMS are out of touch & they are mad as hatters, I mean Hell & not going to take it anymore.
    Suddenly after this primary, they shift gears to a love fest, the GOP embraces the Tea Party.
    The GOP sending big $$$ to O’Donnell– they now hold the rope for their own noose & are tying the knot!

    Did you see O’Donnell’s historic anti masturbation vid???

  5. sadly some of these nightmares will win – but the GOP is a mere bag of shells controlled by teabaggers and Rush – insane people and a fat drug addict

    but as i said, some of them will get in – and then the fun will really begin

    cause cutting the budget means cutting money to the corporate masters of the GOP

    • some will get in, but there might be a silver lining. it will display the craziness that has taken over the rethuglican party, and the pendulum will hopefully swing in the other direction in subsequent elections. at least, i hope so.

    We can only hope the infighting continues in this and lead to an implosion of toothless rednecks, Klansmen, corporations, the Crot-uh, Koch brothers and sexed-up male and sex-less female House and Senate GOP/Tea Party candidates and incumbents. It’s like watching two sons of brother and sister going at it in a prizefight!

    • the infighting will be so much fun to watch. jim the demented demint is the king of the teabaggers, but will dick armey loosen his hold? then you have rushbo who only has to snap his fingers to get everyone on faux news in line, including karl rove. then you have glenn blechhh and princess sarah, both attention whores. then there’s boohoo boehner and the “young guns,” not to mention yertle mcconnell. everyone wants to be the big cheese.

    LOL! Love the poster! You always capture these fools as we all like to see them! As for terms of masturbation, I thought the funniest one I heard was Dating Rosie Palm and her 5 sisters.
