U.S. Sen. John Kerry yesterday mocked Republicans as “Sarah Palin’s party” even as the New Hampshire Senate candidate she backed claimed victory in Tuesday’s primary and a Tea Party favorite emerged as the GOP’s best hope to break the Democratic stranglehold on the Bay State delegation.
“I think the Tea Party couldn’t ask for any better publicity than to be denounced by a millionaire who dodges paying taxes on his yacht,” said conservative gadfly Glenn Reynolds of Instapundit.
Kerry seized on a Republican rift following Tea Party victories across the country – among them, Palin’s “chosen radical rightwing candidate” GOP U.S. Senate nominee Christine O’Donnell, who triumphed in Delaware over establishment Republican Mike Castle. ( Of course one again consistent Kerry is wrong.)
