On Monday's edition of Fox News' "Special Report with Bret Beir," columnist Charles Krauthammer criticized former Gov. Sarah Palin of Alaska and Sen. Jim Demint (R-S.C.) for endorsing Delaware Tea Party candidate Christine O'Donnell over moderate Rep. Mike Castle.

Here's an excerpt:
Krauthammer: The Palin endorsement, I think, is disruptive and capricious. Bill Buckley had a rule that he always supported the most conservative candidate who was electable, otherwise the vote is simply self-indulgence.

Beir: Now Jim DeMint, from South Carolina, also endorsed Christine O'Donnell.

Krauthammer: equally capricious and irresponsible. I'm not sexist on this. It's a big mistake. ...
He went on to add, "Delaware is not Alaska."

Our New Approach to Comments

In an effort to encourage the same level of civil dialogue among Politics Daily’s readers that we expect of our writers – a “civilogue,” to use the term coined by PD’s Jeffrey Weiss – we are requiring commenters to use their AOL or AIM screen names to submit a comment, and we are reading all comments before publishing them. Personal attacks (on writers, other readers, Nancy Pelosi, George W. Bush, or anyone at all) and comments that are not productive additions to the conversation will not be published, period, to make room for a discussion among those with ideas to kick around. Please read our Help and Feedback section for more info.
