I guess it's only natural that Sarah "My critics are limp and impotent" Palin would endorse a candidate who launches ad hominem personal attacks on her opponent, but in Delaware's GOP Senate primary, Christine O'Donnell is really getting creepy. Here she is on Mark Levin's radio show once again delivering a sexually-charged attack on her opponent, Rep. Mike Castle:
O'DONNELL: He can't defend his record, and that's why, like you said, filing this complaint with the FEC because he can't defend his record. But, you know, these are the kind of cheap, underhanded, un-manly tactics that we've come to expect from Obama's favorite Republican, Mike Castle. You know, I released a statement today, saying Mike this is not a bake-off, get your man-pants on.
LEVIN: Yes, and you know you're going to be attacked for that, because you're not allowed to question him.
Uh, hate to break it to you Mark, but calling Mike Castle "un-manly" and accusing him of not having his "man-pants" on isn't exactly a legitimate question. And it's not like this was just a little slip of the tongue for O'Donnell. This is a conscious strategy on her part.
Just a couple of weeks ago, O'Donnell's campaign attacked Republicans for "pimping" Mike Castle, calling him a "70-year-old bad heart Republican." It quickly got even nastier when her campaign accused Castle of being gay.
That accusation happens to be false, but what was really offensive about it is that O'Donnellnthinks anti-gay bigotry is a good way to win an election. For better or for worse, we'll know whether she's right in just a few days: the primary is on Tuesday.
