Just Zip It

The number one rule in life may very well be “Shut up!” Followed by No. 2, which is “Shut Up!”

And that is what the NRSC should have done last night after the Christine O’Donnell victory in Delaware.  Shortly after she was declared  the winner, someone wasted no time in announcing that the Republican hierarchy in the Senate would not provide any funds for her.

Why they felt it necessary to have this immediate temper tantrum is puzzling. The people spoke in the primary and they should accept that. Perhaps she has no chance. That was said of Scott Brown in Massachusetts as well. It didn’t turn out the way pundits thought, did it?

Delaware is a small state and it won’t take many votes to put her over the top. Let the Democrats get cocky. Let them overreach and make their own moronic remarks, which they are prone to do. Change is in the air and that might propel her to a win.

Kudos to Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell who announced this morning that he was supporting her.

Who was it who said, “Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak out and remove all doubt”?

Oh, yes, it was Abraham Lincoln. And wasn’t he the father of the Republican Party?
