    Before Christine O'Donnell was nominated the Republican nominee in Delaware for the Senate, the odds were 90% the Republicans would win. Now, it is 15%.

    That doesn't mean she won't win. Sometimes prediction markets are wrong. However, they usually are not.

    So? We stopped a RINO who voted with the Democrats. I'd rather clean out the RINO's than start the same cycle we've seen since 1996 where a handful of RINO's hold the conservatives hostage. We need FISCAL CONSERVATIVES - not RINO's who support cap-n-trade, higher taxes, and Obamacare.

    In other words, its better to have someone in office who disagrees with us most of the time than someone who disagrees with us some of the time.

    this is the dilemma we face when it comes to voting third party or not.

    You have to wonder how many people are lying to the pollsters about who they intend to vote for in order to mess with the polling numbers.

    In Chicago, they used to refer to this as the "Royko Effect", after SunTimes columnist Mike Royko, when he suggested his readers should do this.

    A few candidates got a real surprise when the election results did not match up with the exit polling.

    Sometimes you have to lose a battle to win the war. I'd rather A REAL CONSERVATIVE lose to COONS than have Castle or any other RINO. RINOs are going extinct. We need to keep it that way or the entire cycle starts over again.......We win a majority but a handful of RINOs hijack the agenda. Fuck that.
