National Review: Conservatives Should Not Support Christine O’Donnell (R-DE)

She is “a conservative standard-bearer who could have been selected by a group of hostile people out to create an unflattering impression of us. To compare O’Donnell to Sharron Angle (R-NV) is an insult to Angle, who has her rough edges as a candidate but whose personal integrity is beyond reproach. What many O’Donnell supporters are implicitly arguing is that there can be no standards in evaluating candidates beyond an ideological litmus test–a deeply unconservative sentiment.”

From The Daily Caller:

National Democrats have gleefully passed along news to reporters showing the insurgent Christine O’Donnell picking up steam against Rep. Mike Castle, a moderate Republican. And there’s been a lot of news to pass on. The thinking goes that Tea Party-backed Republicans bode well for them, as they will be easy to paint as extreme and out of touch with mainstream voters.
“But the Democrat love affair with O’Donnell isn’t likely to last much longer. . .they are likely readying to turn around and paint her as an extremist if she wins the nomination. Former Republican Majority Leader Dick Armey’s FreedomWorks said Monday they aren’t endorsing O’Donnell because she cannot beat the Democratic nominee in November.
