    O'Donnell Raising More Campaign Funds - NYTimes.com

    And if her website is accurate then she's close to $1.6 million now. I don't support her by any stretch, but that is an impressive amount of money to raise in such a short time. It looks like this race will be more interesting than originally thought.

    Yep, she's not my "cup of tea" either but I think she may surprise the media and others who have all but wrote her off.

    I don't really support her all that much either, but I do like that the establishment DOESN'T like her. That's gotta be good.

    She's done some stupid shit in her past, and she has some wacky social positions, but if she does what she says she'll do economically, we'll be ok.

    I'm leery about the establishment's take on her though...

    Rove coming out saying he doesn't like her could be a ploy to get the moderates to vote for her just because he DOESN'T like her, and then she double crosses us like most other republicans have.

    You can't put ANYTHING past Rove.

    We can't send O"Donnell! We need to keep sending people with perfect FICO scores to Washington DC because they're the ones who've racked up annual Trillion dollar deficits.

    Personally I thought that was one of the more principled things Rove has ever said. Though I see no real difference in O'Donnell and Rove when it comes down to it. She's said some things he may not agree with, but they're both neocons in the end.

    Seriously

    We've had our second annual $1 Trillion deficit, O'Donnell is the LEAST of it. Many other places and times in history they'd be blood in the streets

    That's why I suspect Rove may be tricking the voters by saying that.

    The establishment may very well WANT O'Donnell, and is using reverse psychology. It's right out of Rove's election playbook.

    He's the election genius, afterall.

    If her past is any indication, she'll do her best to squander it. Though it will be just more money for her to use for herself instead of the campaign as in the past as well.

    Well now that she's won the primary the establishment certainly does want her, but only because they want a Republican in that seat. They don't care who it is, so long as they're a Republican.
