Mike Castle Discusses Defeat, Looks To The Future CBS Philly I sat and watched Voice of Reason with Mike Castle, who Epitomizes the shows title. And I kept asking myself, "How did a moderate republican with logic and reason lose to a loon like Christine O'Connell?" But this one race exemplifies the fate and ambitions of the Tea Party. Its extreme stances on everything from taxes to Government and Religion will eventually spell its doom. This movement is viewed as a sensational solition for conservative woes. Actually, it is but a short lived placebo for pent up frustrations. It is but a matter of time before the Tea Party will be exposed as a ideology whose time came and went. Sadly, the moderate wing of the GOP is suffering as right wing extremist carry the day. Eventually both the Tea Party and the GOP will fall to population trends and a heavy introduction to realism. Until then, we must endure the likes of Palin, Bachmann, and the infamous Joe Wilson. It was George W Bush and his waste, his corruption, and his incompetence that bred the likes of what we have now.
