Charles Krauthammer's article in Sunday's Times, in which he calls Sen. Jim DeMint's and Sarah Palin's endorsement of Christine O'Donnell for Senate nominee in Delaware reckless and irresponsible, is in itself, irresponsible.

What I got from his article says, let's elect a Republican even though he's a RINO (Republican In Name Only). That way we can have a majority of 51 senators. Not to mention that five or six of the current senators are already RINOs.

Essentially, he more or less told the citizens of Delaware they should have disregarded their principles and integrity and voted for a liberal Republican so that the Republicans could have a majority in name only.

Personally, I'm for O'Donnell. I sent her campaign a check to support her.
