Mike Castle: Contemptible Career Politician

Note: Mike Castle has been in what they laughingly call "public service" since 1966. He held a "real job" (such as it was) for just about one year, as a novice lawyer. He's never run a competitive race; this year will be his first, and his campaign strategy is to spread rumors and lies about his Republican opponent, Christine O'Donnell. He refuses to debate the issues with Christine. Why? Because his stands on key issues, including cap-and-trade, repeal of ObamaCare, and the bailouts, are indefensible.

What's also indefensible is his use of surrogates, including one at the local paper, to go around spreading half-truths and outright lies about Christine O'Donnell. Christine is a thoroughly good woman. Castle, the classic rich boy who wants his "toy" (his federal office) may be a good something, but he's not a good man. And media people who do his bidding -- after all, he's a very important blowhard -- are beneath contempt. Does he offer 30 pieces of silver? Or is it all paper money?

Mike Castle's fundraising is a disgrace. He's collecting huge sums of money from companies and industries he's supposed to monitor and oversee. Where are the media stories about the companies that are funneling money to Castle for "services rendered." Mike Castle has never had a real job in his life, but he gets all sort of deference from media figures who are supposed to ask him hard questions. It stinks.

His campaign slogans might be: "Vote for me, I'm a career politician"; or, "Vote for me, I'm a charter member of the decaying GOP Establishment"; or "Vote for me; I've sold out to every special interest group imaginable." Castle's view seems to be that what the US Senate truly needs is one more reliable liberal -- i.e., him. No wonder, has Castle listed as the most offensive RINO in Congress. Delaware deserves better. Christine O'Donnell IS better.
