You Be The Judge - Republican Senate nominee Christine O'Donnell

You be the judge.  Should someone who takes these positions be a United States Senator?
"It is not enough to be abstinent with other people, you also have to be be abstinent alone. The Bible says that lust in your heart is committing adultery, so you can't masturbate without lust."
"We took the Bible and prayer out of public schools. Now we're having weekly shootings. We had the 60s sexual revolution, and now people are dying of AIDS."
"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 [..] Mike, this is not a bake-off, get your man-pants on."
"God may choose to heal someone from cancer, yet that person still has a great deal of medical bills. The outstanding bills do not determine whether or not the patient has been healed by God."
"America is now a socialist economy. The definition of a socialist economy is when 50% or more your economy is dependent on the federal government."
Let's add one more tid-bit.  This person hates lying so much she wouldn't even lie to Hitler.
Comedian Eddie Izzard pressed her on just how far she would take her anti-lying beliefs. Izzard asked O'Donnell whether or not she would lie to Nazis who showed up at her door during WWII and demanded to know if she were hiding any Jewish people in her house. O'Donnell refused to even entertain the notion of concealing the truth from Nazis in that scenario because "you never have to practice deception":

O'DONNELL: A lie, whether it be a lie or an exaggeration, is disrespect to whoever you're exaggerating or lying to, because it's not respecting reality.
MAHER: Quite the opposite, it can be respect.
IZZARD: What if someone comes to you in the middle of the Second World War and says, 'do you have any Jewish people in your house?' and you do have them. That would be a lie. That would be disrespectful to Hitler.
O'DONNELL: I believe if I were in that situation, God would provide a way to do the right thing righteously. I believe that!
MAHER: God is not there. Hitler's there and you're there.

O'DONNELL: You never have to practice deception. God always provides a way out.
She wouldn't lie to save a Jewish Family - however, she would:

Lie about her Education:

Lie about a lien that the IRS filed against her for unpaid taxes until she was confronted – later claimed that it was a “Computer Error”:

Lie about her home foreclosure proceedings until she was confronted – later claimed it was an “Administration Error” even though she hadn't paid the mortgage in several months:
So is it just me that thinks this women is a nut case and should never be a US Senator?  Actually no.  Ask Karl Rove.

 Speaking on Fox News Tuesday night after O'Donnell's victory was clear, Rove said the political newcomer does not "evince the characteristics of rectitude and sincerity and character that the voters are looking for," adding "there's just a lot of nutty things she's been saying."
I do not think that I have ever agreed with Karl Rove on anything.  There is always a first!

O’Donnell is a 41-year-old serial unsuccessful campaigner, conducting three Senate campaigns in the last five years. Nonetheless, last quarter, she received only five donations from within the state of Delaware. Her support comes from national conservative activist political action committees like the Tea Party Express, which flooded the race late with campaign cash.

A former campaign manager took the highly unusual step of recording a robo-call describing O’Donnell as “a complete fraud.” “I found out she was living on campaign donations—using them for rent and personal expenses, while leaving her workers unpaid and piling up thousands in debt,” said Kristin Murray. “She wasn’t concerned about conservative causes. O’Donnell just wanted to make a buck.”

Now explain to me why this women should even be considered for a US Senate seat.


  1. America becomes scarier every day.

  2. O'Donnell is just another nutjob in a long line of recent Tea Party Christian fascists. Masturbation is a healthy and totally normal expression of human sexuality. Why it should concern ANYONE but the person engaging in (or watching) the act of masturbation is mind boggling. It's funny how social conservatives such as O'Donnell make noise about trying to prevent teenagers from having sex/getting pregnant, yet they turn around and call self-pleasure "adultery." Hmm... mixed messages, anyone? What, are we all just supposed to be totally asexual until the government puts a neat little label ("married") on our relationship? Poor Christine just feels guilty because somebody probably caught her masturbating as a young woman and made her feel bad about it.

  3. she has a real lesbian quality. She must be fighting her true self.

  4. she is already history. She will not recover from her blaire witch stint. She is just a fame whore. She just saw the Tea Party as a white trash, "joe the plumber" express train to some public exposure. She lacked the smarts to actually pull it off for more than a silly 15 minutes of bright lights. . Bill Maher was genius to wait to release the episodes until after she won.
