Dear the New York Times:
Like Hell we did.

Dear the New York Times:

Like Hell we did.

“Tragedy comes in threes: Pearl Harbor, Elizabeth Edwards’s passing and Barack Obama’s announcement of extending the tax cuts, which is good, but also extending the unemployment benefits.”

Tea Party darling and failed Senatorial candidate CHRISTINE O’DONNELL, comparing the extension of the Bush tax cuts to… oh, Jesus H. Christ, it’s not even fucking worth it.

(via the New York Daily News)

“In a debate at the Widener University Law School, Ms. O’Donnell interrupted her Democratic opponent, Chris Coons, as he argued that the Constitution does not allow public schools to teach religious doctrine.

“Where in the Constitution is the separation of church and state?” Ms. O’Donnell asked him, according to audio posted on the Web site of WDEL 1150 AM radio, which co-sponsored the debate.

The audience at the law school can be heard to break out in laughter. But Ms. O’Donnell refuses to be dissuaded, and pushes forward.

“Let me just clarify. You are telling me that the separation of church and state is in the First Amendment,” she says.

When Mr. Coons offers a shorthand of the relevant section, saying, “government shall make no establishment of religion,” Ms. O’Donnell replies, “That’s in the First Amendment?””

From the New York Times article “O’Donnell Questions Church-State Separation.”

Just for lulz, guys.


WASHINGTON POST: Sarah Palin's advisers prepped Christine O'Donnell for her televised debate with Chris Coons. »

By some reckonings, Christine O’Donnell had a bit of a rocky time at her Delaware Senate debate with Dem Chris Coons last night. She wouldn’t say whether she believe in evolution, described Coons as a Marxist, and appeared to stumble over her answer on discretionary funding.

And yet, as Dana Milbank notes, in comparison to recent revelations about her and the national caricature that is the result, her performance was clearly an improvement.

If that’s so, there are two people she has to thank for that, and they’re both Sarah Palin advisers: Randy Scheunemann and Michael Goldfarb. They were the ones who took on the job of prepping O’Donnell for the debate, Goldfarb confirms.

Palin, in a conversation with O’Donnell, recommended the two men to her, and the O’Donnell campaign reached out to them to enlist their help, Goldfarb says. They spent the day with her yesterday in Wilmington getting her ready.

“(Christine) O’Donnell couldn’t have answered that question better if Sarah Palin’s own advisers had prepped her for the debate! What’s that? Oh - I’m being told Sarah Palin’s advisers prepped her for the debate.”

STEPHEN COLBERT, remarking on the Tea Party / GOP candidate’s inability to answer the question “What opinions, of late, that have come from (the Supreme Court) do you object to?” during a debate against her opponent - just like Sarah Palin once couldn’t - on The Colbert Report.

Heh.  EDIT: Here’s the Washington Post's story.

“You know what? Evolution is a myth. …Why aren’t monkeys still evolving into humans?”

Tea Party darling and Delaware senatorial candidate CHRISTINE O’DONNELL, being a complete fucking idiotic idiot on a 1998 episode of Politically Incorrect With Bill Maher.

Even Andrew Breitbart seems to think she’s an idiot, for God’s sake.

“Christine O’Donnell has come out against masturbation. She is against masturbation. But you see, isn’t that the whole philosophy of the Tea Party - if you want something done right, you do it yourself?”
