Leftist Mike Castle Attacked From Left For Being Teh Gay
Via Hot Air headlines, with no context, because they often care more about hit generating controversy than context, or politics:
"Isn't Mike Castle cheating on his wife with a man?" asks a voice off-screen at the 1:55 mark. "That's the rumor," answers the newscaster. (A short clip of the exchange is above.)
But this didn't begin with the Right. It began with the Left in 2006:
"I recall the gay bars years back and how many of my gay friends saw him there, perhaps he is having a breakdown as the real Mike Castle gets revealed to the public."
Geez, Liz is a committed radical-leftist. Ya'd think she'd actually want to help Castle in coming out of the closet, wouldn't 'ya? I mean, there's not anything wrong with it, right?
But the real story today is how Leftist Castle, the most far-Left Republican there is, is stooping to typical Leftist thug tactics in attacking O'Donnell with an attack site – and spreading it via the usual Beltway-aligned, or non-conservative and media suspects.
Matt Lewis tweets Mataconis. It's being pushed by Hotline. And CQ Politics. And likely started at Delaware Online. So, there's a full fledged, ugly attack on a conservative coming from a far Leftist. But that's not news to some of our so-called friends. They'd rather carry Castle's water because he's already in the Senate, perhaps. This is the Beltway GOP in action, fighting against conservatives to preserve itself. And if it means partnering up with a Republican who votes with Obama and not them, so what?
As Melissa Clouthier and I discussed in a recent podcast, it's time to find out just which side some people are really on.
"Get off of the fence, if you don't, I hope you get caught up where it hurts." – @DanRiehl
We already know in the case of David Frum. Conservatives shouldn't push this crap, they should be pushing back against ugly Leftist attacks, just like the suggestion that Castle is teh gay. Not that there's anything wrong with that, or anything. I guess they're just saving it for the general election, perhaps.
… on Tuesday August 31st, and on Wednesday September 1st, Mike Castle’s campaign launched their official Christine O’Donnell attack site.
