Within 24 hours of her Republican primary win Christine O’ Donnell has removed all relevant content from her website. A quick visit to the website (at the time this article was written) reveals only a link to donate to the campaign. No biography exists or a summary of O’ Donnell’s positions on the issues.
Think Progress noted that the links to the O’ Donnell website were broken early yesterday. Since that time the website has been greatly simplified to the current "donate only" format. Think Progress theorizes that O’ Donnell may have cleaned her website to cover up embarrassing details about O’ Donnell’s belief on issues involving sex,

The website cleaning is becoming a familiar pattern for many Tea Party backed candidates who win the Republican nomination. In Nevada Republican nominee Sharon Angle removed many of her previous policy proposals (including one to privatize Social Security) after winning the primary election. Now the Angle website makes no mention of Social Security privatization. Instead Angle’s current website refers simply to creating "personalized accounts for the next generation,

The problem for Tea Party candidates is that their rhetoric plays very well in the primary election,

Eventually the Tea Party backed candidates will find themselves in a conundrum if they get elected. If they do what their Tea Party base wants they will alienate the rest of the electorate and almost assure themselves of defeat in the next election. However,

Don’t confuse Delaware with Massachusetts or California,

I have probably 1000 friends, relatives and aquaintances in the state from all walks of life. If I were to rate them about 20% are liberal and 30% are conservative while 50% are moderate centrists who can’t stand political commericials. This year, as in previous decades,

I’m a conservative voter,

Being conservative traditionally has meant not just staking out far right positions politically, but exhibiting decency, integrity,
308497 008 Air Jordan 4 Thunder Black Tour Yellow(14), and character. Our icons have been people like Jack Kemp,

307546 102 Air Jordan 19 White Chrome Grey(36), and Margaret Thatcher. Christine O’Donnell has no more in common with Ronald Reagan’s legacy than does John Edwards.
It will be fun to watch Sean Hannity and his cohorts throw stones at Charlie Rangel this fall, at the same time they are championing the cause of a slug like Christine O’Donnell.
