Delaware Republicans have shunned Mike Castle who was in the range of 100% likely to win the open Senate seat in Delaware in favor of a Tea Party candidate that returns the seat to likely Democratic. Kudos, few Republicans that actually vote in primaries. (ThePage)

Craig Ferguson: Cursing Bunny and the VMAs

Jets' Turbulent Takeoff

As bad as the Jets were last night on offense, people are overreacting. They lost 10-9 to a team many predict to go to the Super Bowl in a game where they were bogged down all night, had a ton of penalties, and gave up the lone touchdown following a weak running into the kicker penalty. While I think they'll lose to the Patriots next week, I wouldn't be at all surprised if this team makes a deep playoff run considering they lost by one point in a game where very little went right.
