Mark Kleiman dusts off this O'Donnell quote from last week:

You know, these are the kind of cheap, underhanded, un-manly tactics that we’ve come to expect from Obama’s favorite Republican, Mike Castle. You know, I released a statement today, saying Mike this is not a bake-off, get your man-pants on.

Kleiman adds, "But of course O’Donnell had nothing to do with her former campaign consultants spreading rumors about Castle’s sexual orientation."
