Everyday I wake up hoping that Castle will turn out to be the moderate he claims to be.
...and everyday I am let down when Castle fails to speak out against shit like this email from Ken Mehlman: Subject: Democrat Judge sides with the ACLU to weaken our securityDear Patriot,
Yesterday, a Democrat-appointed judge in Detroit sided with the ACLU and ordered an immediate halt to the terrorist surveillance program. This decision is a reminder of what is at stake in 2006. Will we use every tool in our arsenal to respond to emerging threats, or embrace the Democrat-ACLU position that just made it harder for our intelligence agencies to detect terrorist plots inside the United States?
This is just f'ing nuts. Ignore the nonsense argument that illegal wire taps make us "safe". Think about what Mehlman is saying. He is saying our judical system is bullshit and that the executive should not be bound by any laws.
Here is the thing - as many people have pointed out - there is no such thing as a Democrat (sic)
judge. Nor is there such a thing as a Republican judge. Judges are judges. If you don't like a judge's decision it is not OKAY to go around saying that they were not doing their duty. It is not okay to undermine our system of justice to prop up your party's failed leader. It is simply not OKAY.
What the hell does Mehlman think he is doing - and why is Castle sitting back and let him do it?
I know I go on about Castle, but he proves that he is a pathetic party-hack and a fraud every single day he is silent about this shit. If he thinks his silence is helping the country he needs to get fired.
Here is the bottom line: I know Spivack is a longshot - so Castle coming to his senses would be bad for Dennis Spivack, but good for the country. (Call me old fashioned but I still put the country ahead of my party.) To that end, can someone PLEASE prevail on Castle to remove his head from his ass ? (Delaware Bar Assoc. - I'm looking at you.)UPDATE: Ron Williams reports on Castle's approaching freak out. There may be a generally held belief that the campaign season around here doesn't begin until Labor Day, but no one has told that to the Republicans.
Mike Castle, for one, has the most extensive display of large, green "Castle for Congress" signs up and down the state's major highways. Just when you think Castle's sign engineers ran out of space, there's another one.
Someone said to watch Castle's pocketbook as a guide to how safe he is feeling. If that is a good measure, then this sign barrage is not a good sign
if you happen to like Castle's useless, impotent style representation in Congress.
