Legthrill Matthews: Conservative Tea Partier Won Because of Disgruntled… Hillary Voters?

Christine O’Donnell, the “Tea Party” candidate on the GOP ticket, defeated the RNC-backed, nine-term Rep. Mike Castle in the primary last night, and Chris Matthews thinks it might be disgruntled Hillary voters who put O’Donnell over the top. What?

According to Chris Matthews, it doesn’t matter to some female voters if a political candidate is a socialist or a conservative — only that they don’t have wedding tackle:

“There are an awful a lot of women that felt frustrated by Hillary Clinton’s failure two years ago and I’m telling you it’s popping up, I’m hearing it anecdotally, I admit, but look at this picture here — these are women and they may be conservative women, but they are women nonetheless,” MSNBC’s Chris Matthews said.

Expect lots of this kind of thing today. “Fooling themselves” doesn’t even begin to describe how some in the media and most at the RNC (along with Krauthammer and Karl Rove) are going to spin this today.
