Celia mentioned the sad state of Delaware’s second political party last week:
…So far, the (DEGOP) has nobody for senator, representative or attorney general, Tom Wagner for re-election as auditor, and only a chance at a primary for treasurer, if Ken Simpler Jr. is joined in the race by Colin Bonini, a state senator who ran the last time.
But is it really conceivable that Charlie Copeland’s DEGOP will be MORE incompetent that Sig’s? Last week, my sense was that the GOP would certainly be able to talk some egotistical jerks into being punching bags in order to keep up the fiction that the party is sane, but I’m starting to have second thoughts. It is already getting late in the day for people to be talked up as serious candidates.
That leaves the GOP with unserious candidates like Rose Izzo. If Izzo is the only one to step up, will Charlie be able to raise a Vicmead glass to her efforts with a straight face? I kind of doubt it.
