Determined to Kick Ass

I'm going to the 4:00 p.m. announcement today in Middletown. I've read some of his campaign materials, and this morning I heard a blurb about the announcement on WDEL. Overall I'm glad to report that (so far) Dennis Spivack not turned into the typically Delawarean "plain vanilla" candidate we are all so familiar with. I'm revisiting my remarks from the December PDD meeting in order to compare them to what I hear this afternoon.

DECEMBER 3rd, 2005

I went to the PDD meeting last night thinking that Castle (a cog in a corrupt republican political machine) is beatable. I left knowing that Dennis Spivack is the man who is going to beat him.

Two minutes into his introduction I knew that Dennis Spivack had the guts, the brains, and the heart to take the fight to Castle. Here are some of the other things I learned:

- Dennis Spivack has a compelling personal story and is running for Congress for all the right reasons,

- Dennis Spivack has a significant amount of "earnest"” money to get his campaign going, but he is realistic about how much money it is going to take to unseat an incumbent, and

-Dennis Spivack will expose Castle for what he is, not a moderate, but a conservative who believes in nothing other than getting reelected.

One thing I like about this race is that it will not only shakes up the Republican's - but it will help shake up the Democrats as well. I think Delaware's incumbents (from both parties) need a wake up call. Spivack is about to provide it.

Go hear Dennis Spivack announce his plans to kick Fake Moderate Michael Castle's ass:

-CHEER Center Georgetown 9:00 a.m
-Dover Sheraton 11:30 a.m.
-Wilmington Rodney Square 1:30 p.m.
-MOT Sr. Center 4:00 p.m.
Have fun at the ghost dance.

A wingnut made a literary/historical allusion.

This IS shaping up to be a historical day!
I know, as well as anyone, what it's like to get fired up about a candidate who has no chance of winning. I've had myself convinced many times that my candidate would win, only to see them lose by 20 points or more on election day. I'll be sorry to see that happen to you this year.
Thanks. I guess.

It is not really a democracy if you don't try right? Plus, sometimes things happen. In recent history, Carper got some help when Roth passed out on the campaign trail.

Maybe Castle gets hit by a meteorite or decides to retire. could happen...(?)

Even so, trying is important even if If Castle wins. At the every least he will know that people are on to his fake moderate routine.
