A Tea Party insurgency has left rancor and discord within the GOP’s big tent. Led by Sarah Palin, Tea Party candidates have scored several primary upsets against establishment candidates. The latest victor is Christine O’Donnell.

The anti-masturbation candidate has won the Republican senate nomination in Delaware, causing strategist Karl Rove to self-immolate on national television.

The Democrats, believing the Tea Party cannot win in a general election, are predictably happy with Tea Party’s primary success. But are the Democrat’s underestimating the strength of this populist movement?

Since he left CNN last November, after Latino groups mounted a protest campaign against his inflammatory rhetoric, Dobbs has continued to advocate an enforcement-first approach to immigration, emphasizing, as he did in a March 2010 interview on Univision, that “the illegal employer is the central issue in this entire mess!”

His scheduled October 9 address at the Virginia Tea Party Convention will mark his second major Tea Party address of the year…

WitchAnother great thing coming out of the recent Real Time With Bill Maher besides the deserved knock on the Democrats’ “rebranding” is that Bill Maher mentioned he had Delaware Senate hopeful Christine O’Donnell on his old show Politically Incorrect 22 times!

So we get to find out fun things like Tea Party favorite Christine O’Donnell dabbled in witchcraft and believes it’s wrong to tell a lie under any circumstances (that certainly won’t work for her in the Senate).

Man, do I like Maher’s proposed strategy to try to get Candidate O’Donnell on his new show:

ChristineODonnellOh man, Joe Biden must be loving that anti-masturbation/Tea Party-backed candidate Christine O’Donnell is up for his old Senate seat:

My name is Christine O’Donnell. I am the President and Founder of The S.A.L.T. The S.A.L.T. stands for “The Savior’s Alliance For Lifting The Truth.” We choose sexual purity in our lives. We have God-given sexual desires and we need to understand them and preserve them to be used in God’s appropriate context. Our members are committed to be role models, committed to be the salt of the earth … We need to address sexuality with young people and masturbation is part of sexuality but it is important to discuss this from a moral point of view … The Bible says that lust in your heart is committing adultery. So you can’t masturbate without lust.

Holy cow as the Washington Post reports. For more on O’Donnell check out this post from Irin Carmon on Jezebel and the mashup video below:
