Establishment Republicans are (understandably!) furious after last night's Senate primary in Delaware, where '90s MTV anti-masturbation advocate Christine O'Donnell defeated the more-electable candidate Rep. Mike Castle. Karl Rove, for example, is still trashing her, although O'Donnell calls his criticisms "unfactual."
Rove appeared on Sean Hannity's Fox News show last night to offer the Establishment Party Insider take on O'Donnell, which is along the lines of, why would we pick this mysterious anti-masturbation lady when there's a safe seat in our hands with Mike Castle? Rove, however, always has to say this in the slimiest way:
"I've met her. I wasn't frankly impressed by her abilities as a candidate," Rove said during an interview with Fox News' Sean Hannity. "One thing that O'Donnell is now going to have to answer in the general election that she didn't in the primary is her own checkered background."
"There were a lot of nutty things she has been saying that don't add up," Rove added. "Why did she mislead voters about her college education? How come it took nearly two decades to pay her college bills so she could get her college degree? How did she make a living?"
"Everything that he is saying is un-factual. And it's a shame because he is the same so-called political guru that predicted I wasn't going to win. And we won and we won big," Christine O'Donnell told me this morning. "So I think, again, he is eating some humble pie and he is just trying to restore his reputation."
