Tea party's O'Donnell defeats Castle in Delaware upset

• McClatchy News

Tea party favorite Christine O'Donnell, a little-known underdog, Tuesday defeated veteran Delaware congressman Mike Castle for the state's Republican U.S. Senate nomination, the latest in a nationwide series of 2010 upsets by grassroots conservative candidates over establishment GOP favorites.

O'Donnell's triumph sent a strong signal that the tea party rebellion is roiling the GOP across the land and will influence the outcome of November's congressional and gubernatorial elections.

Unfortunately most of your Tea Party grassroots candidates are are just Neocons in Patriot clothing. If a candidate does not have an endorsement from Ron Paul that means they have no intergity or character, and you can count on them to carry on with business as usual as we march to the New World Order. The tea party has been hijacked by the neoconservatives and a sweeping victory in November by the Republicans will be meaningless. The country is doomed.
