Mike Castle: You Totally Made The Right Call In Booting Me The F Out

The obligatory sore-loser whining from a Republican in Name Only who thought, incorrectly, he had a perpetual right to high office without actually seeking to advance his constituents' wishes.

A genial and courtly man in the manner of the elder President Bush (who held a fundraiser for him in Kennebunkport), the nine-term congressman was mourning the decline of both the conciliatory style of politics that animated his career and the moderate Republican disposition that the Tea Party is determined to destroy.

“There are issues on which, as Republicans and Democrats, we should sit down and work out our differences,” Castle said Monday night as we sat outside at Kelly’s Logan House, a watering hole where he has gathered his closest supporters the night before every election since his first victory, for the neighborhood’s state legislative seat, in 1966.

Republicans who might be inclined toward the middle of the road, he said, are petrified of “quick attacks by columnists and the Sean Hannitys of the world. People are very afraid of crossing the line and being called Republicans In Name Only—or worse.” As a result, “not too many members are willing to stand up.”

“Part of it,” he added, “is worry about primaries, and this election has shown the power of very conservative groups.”

Dude, you lost a race. It happens. No one's arresting you or killing you.

But yeah, dude -- Cap and Trade? DISCLOSE? Your supporters, your voters, were passionately against those things, and you would have known that had you bothered to ask them, but you didn't, so STFU, Loser.

How many times do we have to witness this pathetic spectacle of candidates who didn't do a good enough job earning votes seeking morale comfort from a liberal media all-too-willing to nod along as they decry the unfairness of voters voting their actual aspirations and preferences?


A lot of times, apparently. Quoted at Hot Air, regarding the sore-loser bitter-clinger syndrome among crap candidates: "At bottom, they kind of resent they work for the American people."

They want deference to their apparently superior and supreme judgment and conscience. But no one ever granted them that they were superior in any way -- the entire notion of America is that we are equal. We do not have, want, or need an upper class constituting the Aristocracy of the Mind as these smug fucks seem to believe.

Hey Mike Castle? Nice to meet you. Let me drop some truth on your ass: I'm at least 30 IQ points smarter than you are and I have the tests to prove it. So fuck you with your demands for deference.

Defer to me, bitch. Well, not me. I don't live in Delaware. Defer to people like me in Delaware. You know -- citizens.

I supported you, Whiny Old Bastard, because you could win, I thought. Not because -- as you seem to think -- you were entitled to the seat.

You see the difference? I supported you only to the extent you advanced my goals. You are here to serve us, not the other way around.

A majority of your party decided you weren't advancing their goals sufficiently and, indeed, seemed to have forgotten that your job was not to instruct us us as to what the Aristocracy of the Mind had collectively decided but to listen to us as far as what We, The People had decided.

You lost. Get over it, and get the fuck over yourself. There are no indispensible men in politics; there's definitely no indespensible man currently serving in your Congressional district.
