The Eternal Sunshine of O’Donnell’s Mind

Christine O’Donnell, who is definitely not a witch, says that she could run for office again. What office? I have no idea. Oh, and she’s open to having a position in a Romney administration. What office is she qualified for? Absolutely none.

Former GOP Senate candidate Christine O’Donnell said Friday that “the door was open” for another run for political office, despite her tumultuous Delaware effort that resulted in a 17-point loss.

“I don’t know,” O’Donnell told New York Magazine at the Conservative Political Action Conference in Washington. “I’ll make up my mind as to whether I’ll run again later on. I’ve learned not to say no.” …

The Tea Party darling said she would also consider a hypothetical offer for a job in the Romney administration. She has endorsed the former Massachusetts governor in the GOP presidential primary.

“Well, who knows?” O’Donnell said. “I have to continue to help Gov. Romney in any way that I can. Whether or not I would actually work in the administration depends, again, on what role, on what capacity, and what else was going on in my own career at the time.”

In related news, Christine O’Donnell thinks she has a career. They’re so cute when they’re being oblivious to the fact that they’ve become national punchlines.

It’s a good thing she’s not a witch, or poor Newt Gingrich would have to keep an, err, eye on his eyes.

    She thinking ’bout becomin’ Santorum-for-brain’s pick as Vice-President maybe? That wouldn’t surprise me.

    Doubt she or Mr Stinkyfroth could win anything though. Even the clown contest that is the Republican race.

  2. StevoR says

    PS. Apologies to any professional or amateur clowns out there.

    Unlike tehRepublicans you folks are sometime hilarious and often serve a useful purpose eg. in rodeos.

    “Well, who knows?” O’Donnell said. “I have to continue to help Gov. Romney in any way that I can.

    My advice on how she can best accomplish that goal: STFU.

    Christine O’Donnell, who is definitely not a witch

    Ah but how do we *know* she’s not a witch?

    Does she weigh the same as .. a duck!?

    Can’t take a witches word as true now can we? Well, okay, a witcthes word you can – but not a Republicans! ;-)

  5. StevoR says

    @3. Reginald Selkirk :

    Shhh … She probably won’t take it but don’t give her any useful advice please! If anything advise the opposite!

    She’s a very tragic figure. Severely mixed up and conflicted. The thin layer of naive narcissism covers up a lot of problems. Her baseline academic intelligence is normal if not impressive, but her problems lie elsewhere.

    Whatever attention she ever got – being made fun of on Bill Maher in the nineties, being a ridiculous senate candidate, and whatever else – was all due to the combination of her naively delivered over-the-top bizarre comments on sex-related topics, combined with the fact that she’s cute. That schtick just can’t go on forever.

    Sarah Palin is an old fashioned hard-edged manipulative con artist/rabble-rouser. Christine O’Donnell is a hapless figure. Michelle Bachmann has, terrifyingly, gotten herself genuinely elected, but she’s something in between, and maybe closer to O’Donnell.

    Not to be too negative about O’Donnell’s motives, her campaign did just plead poverty with only 11k in the bank. And she has car payments and spa payments and (hopefully) psychiatrist payments.

    I’ve learned not to say no.

    So says the anti-masturbation, save-yourself-until-your-wedding-night activist.

    I’m sure Mitt will find a place for you, Christine. Don’t be surprised if it involves brooms.

    You know, sometimes it’s fun living in a real-life Monty Python sketch.

    Most of the time, it’s just horrifying.

    Sure there must be a village somewhere that needs a new idiot

    There are, unfortunately, more idiots than towns available for them.

    If you would still like to apply, please join your local Republican party. We do all our placements from their membership lists.

    To ease the shortage, we are contemplating extending idiots beyond villages, and into neighborhoods. Please check here often for updates.

  11. Trebuchet says

    I’m not so sure she’s quite such an idiot. She’s made herself a living from campaign contributions by basically paying herself to run for office. Any indications she’s held an actual job in the past few years?

  12. Michael Heath says

    “I don’t know,” O’Donnell told . . .

    Exactly, so please go away or else join Victoria Jackson’s troupe to at least generate some entertainment for us all.

  13. duck1887 says

    Actually it seems that the (*cough*) Honorable Mr. Gingrich has not yet recovered (as some do, apparently, if you catch my drift here) from a previous encounter with a witch.

    @harold
    I can’t help, but feel sorry for her. There are quite a few incredible dumb people that managed to get elected to important positions. They, too, may be ridiculed, but they got to inflict damage and get a decent pension for it.

    @Reginald Selkirk
    Mustaine seems to be crazy, except the bit about Ron Paul, but I could imagine that the outlandish statements he refers to are the more sane ones.

    I would like to know what exactly Obama has done that Santorum or any Republican would do better. Or did Mustaine stay vage for a reason?

    O’Donnell told New York Magazine at the Conservative Political Action Conference in Washington. “I’ll make up my mind as to whether I’ll run again later on. I’ve learned not to say no.” …

    Woa. Someone else had a problem with saying “no”. I think it was, oh I don’t know.. can’t think of his name right now… maybe SATAN?!??

  17. Chris from Europe says

    Re Mustaine:
    He’s definitively a crazy anti-LGBT, anti-secular bigot. It’s not surprising that he supports Santorum and that he supported Perry before.

    See the interview here.

    The coy allure of Christine O’Donnell would have come as no surprise to crooner Steve Lawrence:

    Bewitched, bewitched,
    You’ve got me in your spell.
    Bewitched, bewitched,
    You know your craft so well.

    Before I knew what you were doing,
    I looked in your eyes.
    That brand of woo that you’ve been brew-in’
    Took me by surprise.

    You witch, you witch,
    One thing is for sure,
    That stuff you pitch -
    Just hasn’t got a cure.

    My [brain] was under lock and key,
    But somehow it got unhitched.
    I never thought my [brain] could be had.
    But now I’m caught and I’m kind of glad
    To be – to be Bewitched.

    *nose wiggle*
    “winkle-winkle-winkle-winkle”
