This morning's Wall Street Journal carries a perceptive letter to the editor from an Iowa reader on the Castle-O'Donnell showdown. The reader points out that the September 8th issue of the WSJ carried two separate pieces on the subject. One piece, "Tea Party Favorite Alarms Delaware GOP," refers to Castle as "the most liberal among House Republicans." Yet in the WSJ editorial the same day, "The Tea Party and the GOP" Castle is described as a "moderate" Republican. Reader Roger Payne goes on to say:
It could be smaller--consisting entirely of Mike Steele and the members of the RNC.
Out here in Iowa someone who is the most liberal Republican in the House is not a moderate. Maybe this is one reason the Republican Party is having so much trouble around the country, because one person's moderate is another person's liberal. The Republican Party needs to decide what kind of party it is going to be.
Remember, these are the twits that pushed Scuzzyfazza and Charlie Crist. And who gave up on Brown of MA.
