Christine O’Donnell takes bite of Rove
She said, “And again he is eating some humble pie and he is just trying to restore his reputation.”
She is feasting on Rove’s arrogant remarks that are usually reserved for Democrats. Now, he has reduced his plate of credibility even more.
You go girls, O’Donnell and Palin, anyone want a leg or thigh?
“Christine O'Donnell on Rove's 'Un-factual' Remarks and 'Republican Cannibalism'

“Everything that he is saying is un-factual. And it’s a shame because he is the same so-called political guru that predicted I wasn’t going to win. And we won and we won big,” Christine O’Donnell told me this morning. “And again he is eating some humble pie and he is just trying to restore his reputation.”
Following O’Donnell’s victory over Republican congressman Mike Castle – her third bid for the Senate seat-- Rove questioned O’Donnell’s record and the reports of her financial troubles.
“Why did she mislead voters about her college education? How come it took nearly two decades to pay her college bills so she could get her college degree? How did she make a living? Why didn't she sue a well-known…conservative think tank,” Rove said on Fox News.
Rove also took on her “checkered” background, “a lot of nutty things she has been saying” and predicted she would cost the GOP a Senate seat.
Castle was expected to win the nomination and challenge Democrat Chris Coons for Vice President Biden’s old Senate seat. But an endorsement and last minute push by former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin made the difference, O’Donnell told me.
“When Governor Palin stood up and so boldly made a statement that she supported me it allowed them to get past the politics of personal destruction, to look at the message…she helped bring it back on track,” O’Donnell said.”
