And now, a fisking

It's been a while but it's time for a Fisking:

Castle Should Run

Now I’m all for people speaking their mind.

So far so good. He's at odds with the partisans who want everyone to shut up (execpt themselves of course)

I’m all for supporting the majority.

Be wary of the majority. Slavery was once the opinion of the majority. Principles and majority opinion are frequently at odds.

And like the founding fathers, I have implicit faith in the ability of the people to sort out our problems and separate wheat from the chaff… if not the first time, then definitely over time.

Why then do you align yourself to a party that is so bent on control?

Most ordinary people I know have far more wisdom than any leader I’ve had the privilege to share conversation with.

There may be hope yet.

Therefore I believe in the sanctity of the people’s choice. If the people voted him in, he’s there for a reason.

Ah but as we'll see that sanctity only extends to the preferred candidate. If he loses that sanctity goes out the window.

But that’s only if the election was fair. If someone padded the ballot box, or switched vote totals, than obviously this premise wouldn’t apply for the very reason that the choice of the people was not the person who was actually representing them.

Ah, so we have a suggestion that the election was not fair. That there was some fraud. It couldn't be otherwise. Not possible.

Mike was bushwhacked, sort of like the US was at Pearl Harbor or on 09/11

And we're off the cliff. Comparing the acts of war and terrorism that murdered Americans to a 40 year politician losing his job is simply beyond the pale.

…Reading his interview yesterday in the News Journal, one gets a sense that perhaps this was not a fair fight….

What does that mean? How was it "unfair"? Unfair is one of liberalisms favorite words because it's a slippery concept. Ask a liberal to define fairness and you'll never get a straight answer.

By election laws it was, and we all have to accept the primary results. However, if Mike doesn’t run as a write-in, he is putting himself in the same position as if the United States did nothing after Pearl Harbor or 9/11….

Now that alleged sanctity of the people's choice is now equated to Pearl Harbor and 9/11. Got that Delaware? You are either Imperial Japanese Kamikazi pilots or Islamic Terrorists, take your pick.

And with Mike, it is not about winning, although winning would be nice.

Completely wrong. It's ALL ABOUT winning. That is it. Nothing else matters. The only thing Mike Castle has never waivered on is his firm belief that Mike Castle needs to be in office.

It would be about whether good or evil triumphed.

Once again, either Christine O'Donnell is evil or the sanctity of the people's choice is evil. O'Donnell is not merely wrong, no that's not enough. She is evil. By extention the people of Delaware are fans of evil since they voted for her.

Polls say it’s Mike’s race to lose.

It appears he's already lost by not making it on to the ballot. I have yet to see a poll that claims Mike Castle can win as a write in. The only reason he'd do that is to hurt O'Donnell.

He actually has enough money to send every voter a personal card telling them exactly how much he’s done for them,

Which is not likely to impress too many people.

how that will soon change for the worse,

What with the RINO out and an actual Republican in.

and explain how to write in his name and send the evil perpetrators back to their cardboard boxes.

There's that word again. EVIL. The "perpatrators" are the voters of Delaware.

If Mike doesn’t do this…. exactly then, what is he saying to future generations of Americans? ?

Oh, maybe that nobody should be in political offices for 40 years? That you should actually respect the will of the voters? That the polical process actually works? That new people in goverment is a good idea? Heaven forfend?

That we should just give up when hit from behind with a baseball bat?

Voting is now equivalent to felony assault. Well, at least it's no longer terrorist murder so I guess that's progress.

That it’s the American way to lay down and bend over?

How do you bend over when you're already laying down?

That being a man, is knowing when to run away and hide?

Or being a man means knowing how to lose gracefully?

That brutality and tastelessness are the new American Way?

Voting is downgraded again to brutal and tasteless. If this goes on any longer we may be back into the positive.

That perhaps Christine was right?

Careful, you're straying close to the truth. Quick, say something absurd and get back on track!

Castle has no man pants on?

He never did. He's milquetoast in a rumpled suit.

That the wishes of Delawareans don’t matter; we’ll stop immediately and do what Californians tell us?

Um...what? Are Californians now driving to Delaware to vote in our primaries? Is it some sort of mind beams that zombify Delawareans? Frankly I can't believe I've found a liberal who doesn't want California to tell us what to do.

That how we brush off defeat is a better mark of character, than coming back strong and punishing the evil that befell us?

More evil. I missed the step where the sanctity of the people's choice morphed into evil. I guess it's only evil when they don't vote for RINO's and Democrats.

And sentences keep coming one after another… the list keeps going on…

I know it's weird, right?

But if I were in Mike Castles shoes, and if it were me looking over the entire scene before me… I would have no choice but to say I’m in… Oh yes, I would wait till the last minute of September 30th to do so… and I would create a smoke cloud beforehand by pretending to roll over and let bygones be bygones… …. …. and from somewhere out of the fog, then overwhelmingly, I’d strike.

I think someone needs to look up the definition of "sanctity".

I wouldn’t hold back.. It’d be my last race, it would be the one I pulled all my stops for. Every person I’d ever helped would get a personal appeal from me. Unconditional Surrender would be our rallying cry, just like for the troops of WWII… Our goal would be not just to win, but destroy the O’Tea Party forever.

Unconditional Surrender is Obama's foreign policy. I don't think he'd appreciate Castle using it for his campaign. Castle misunderestimated O'Donnell. Either way, this is his last race. Write in or not, he's done and he knows it. Any campaign now is scorched earth. A more fitting slogan I'd say.

Ok, Hannity O’Tea Partiers: so you were secretly prepared and yes, you overran Poland, and yes, you then went on to incorporate the Low Countries, Denmark and Norway, and even surprised France pushing their ally Britain into the water… But this time, you went too far.. You’ve taken on the United States. You’ve pissed off someone five times your size. We will Normandize you, Elbetize you, Dresdenize you, give you a Kolnectomy, Rhineantipuovertize you, Remagenisque you, and even liposuctionize your Battle of the Bulge. We will Pattontize you, Bradleydice you, and Marshall you into a corner from where you can’t maneuver.. We will take average civilians and turn them into a fighting force the world has never seen…

So now Americans are Nazis. Godwin's law violation. Why are Tea Partiers not "average civilians"?

We will do so for the honor of America.

Translation: the only way to honor America is to firebomb our fellow Americans who want to vote. For the wrong people.

What kind of an America? An America where truth wins out, where decency prevails, where honesty and hard work eventually win out over trickery, skulduggery, and political assassination.

Now voting is "trickery, skulduggery and political assassination".

You wanted to play dirty?

The MSM is calling O'Donnell a self confessed whore and you're saying they're playing dirty?

We’ll show you how it’s done

Of that I have no doubt. See; Maher, Bill; Axelrod, David et al.

… In doing so we will show the world that modernism prevails

Threats of violence and fighting dirty is modernism?

, that decent people still run America.

You just told me I'm a Nazi, you're going to firebomb me and fight dirty and you call yourself decent?

that the “Boehner Bullshit” is just that.

See Boehner has nothing to do with the Tea Party. I think he's smart enough to know that he either needs to get on that bandwagon or it's going to run him over but that's about it.

It’s time to show the world what we’ve known all along.. That in America, it’s the people who run politics..Not the Politics who run the people…..

OK you started off by telling me that the people should choose. Then you said that you respect that choice. Unless they choose O'Donnell over Castle in which case they are terrorist murders. And Nazis. And that the good, decent people will fight them. Dirty. And firebomb them with no quarter until they are destroyed.

I’d tell every Delawarean… Do yourself a favor… Turn off your TV’s.. You got a question? Call me or my staff directly! We’ll talk to you… try talking back to their commercials! Where will that get you?

Um...people don't call their politicans because they know they're going to get a line of bullshit regardless of party. Who exactly is talking back to commercials?

That stuff they’re airing? That’s not Delaware talking, That’s California money talking

Again, hatin' on California. Weird for a liberal. If I say something about Delaware that is true and I'm in California at the time does that mean it's no longer true? Does this rule apply to Mike Castle? How can he work in DC if truth about Delaware is confined to Delaware.

… That’s rich bitch snitch drug money being laundried to throw a Senate seat into supporting their snatching up of all your money

I was afraid we weren't going to get slandered with drug lord references but Kavips pulls it out at the last minute. Nice save. About the money: 1. I don't have any more money and neither do you. Obama spent it all on the stimulus that didn't work. And my kids money. And their kids' money. 2. The entire point of the Tea Party is to not take your money. They want you to keep your money so Washington has to do without and you don't.

… You want to keep some of your money? Call me. Call my staff… That’s Delaware talking.

Such a statement coming from anyone supporting either the stimulus or the health care plan is delusional.

Do you want reason to take on ins’hannity?

I'm usually a fan of puns but this is bad. Hannity isn't a Tea Party guy. He's a conservative.

Well, it’s on. Support me. You can’t let the devil win… “

Now O'Donnell or the Tea Party or the people of Delaware are the devil.

Well anyway, if I were Castle, that’s exactly what I’d do. And I would do it selflessly, not to win, but to give Delawarean another alternative between a Democrat and our equivalent of the brown shirts of the Nazi Party.

Wow. Harsh criticism for Democrats. He wants an alternative to Democrats! Oh, and you're still a Nazi.

Yes, if there is still good left in America, then Castle needs to run.
If the doesn’t, then the America that came back after Pearl Harbor……. is gone

In case you didn't get the first 55 examples. Either we vote for Castle or we're Nazi terrorist evil drug lord devils from California or something.

As thorough a fisking as I've seen in a long time. Well done. :-)

Wow, I'm honored to be a recipient of so much effort...

I know hos long that takes; for someone to spend that amount of time, well, shows a great deal of respect, even if for an adversary... :)

I am honored, but unfortunately, .... I don't think I really matter enough to warrant all this attention. I feel guilty now, that perhaps I have caused you to waste a good portion of your day.. :( .

But I am honored...

And just to set the record straight, there are a lot of California license plates cruising up and down Delaware's roads... Keep you eyes out as you drive.... :) It's unbelievable... :)

Kavips;

You were the voice of reason for the Left in DE. We lost you there for a bit but I think you can be that again. You seem to have calmed down once Obama won. Just tone down the hyperbole about nazis and such and you'll be fine.

I'll look for the California plates but I still don't get what that is supposed to mean.
