Oh Please Please Please


Undaunted by the fact that she has become little more than a political punchline, Christine O’Donnell is apparently seriously considering making another run for the Senate from the state of Delaware. I’m not a praying man, but I’ll get on my knees if it would make her run.

News last week that her federal tax records may have been accessed improperly by state tax investigators brought new speculation about a possible O’Donnell candidacy next year against Democratic Sen. Chris Coons, particularly in light of an email sent Thursday that featured a newspaper story on the allegations and a link to donate to her political action committee, ChristinePAC.

The tea party sensation has yet to announce her plans for next year, causing some Delaware Republicans to wonder if her indecision is keeping other GOP candidates from stepping forward as the campaign draws closer.

So far, no names aside from O’Donnell’s have surfaced as possible challengers to Coons…

At a special GOP convention Saturday to elect Charles L. Copeland state chair, O’Donnell said she did not know when she would make a decision about a campaign. She referenced persistent tension within the party, strife that was evident in 2010 when grassroots conservatives from southern Delaware feuded with moderate northern Republicans over her primary campaign against then-U.S. Rep. Mike Castle.

“We have to rebuild the foundation in the party,” O’Donnell said.

The anti-masturbation candidate will rise (ahem) again.

    The photo in the news link is of O’Donnell at Dover’s Modern Maturity Center. Unfortunately for her, maturity isn’t contagious.

    Someone needs to fill the empty spaces in our hearts left by Michele Bachmann and Sarah Palin, and O’Donnell is just the one to do it.

    She’d drag the party down with her, not only in Delaware, but other places as well. She becomes “People’s Exhibit A” for the batshit craziness of the GOP (and that’s a lot of guano)

    wikipedia:

    She lost in the general election to Democrat Chris Coons by a margin of 57% to 40%.[5][6]

    Despite O’Donnells general confusion, incoherence, and frequent accusations of mishandling money by among others the US IRS, she still did OK in Delaware, considering.

    Which tells everyone that the GOP could run a cardboard cutout of a pig, a dog, or a vampire and still get 40% of the vote.

    She has a long history of erratic and confused behavior and IIRC, even her campaign staff kept quitting on her.

    It’s fundie xian induced cognitive impairment again.

    She can’t “rebuild the foundation in the party”. She is the foundation in the party. Heck, with the way they’ve been going, in four or eight years she’ll qualify as a Moderate.

    In 2007 on the O’Reilly Factor, O’Donnell expressed her moral concerns about stem cell research, and said, “American scientific companies are cross-breeding humans and animals and coming up with mice with fully functioning human brains. So they’re already into this experiment.” [137]

    I’ve noticed those mice with fully functional human brains too.

    The mice in my backyard are building condos along the fence. They also fired a cruise missile at the cat. I’m not going to evict them after that incident, but my lawyer is talking to their lawyer about leasing payments for the land.

    Really, this is Michele Bachmann class delusional thinking. It’s incredible that she got 40% of the vote.

    It’s Delaware. The Republicans can’t win no matter who they run.

    Although Delaware is pretty blue, if O’Donnell hadn’t beaten Mike Castle in the primary, the Republicans would have taken the seat. Castle had won two terms as governor and eight terms as representative to Congress (a statewide election in Delaware). The Democrats had put up Chris Coons as a kind of sacrificial lamb to face Castle.

    Uh, she does know The Secret of NIMH wasn’t a documentary, right?

    Oh, right. Forgot who we were talking about.

    Don’t forget that she’s also a scam artist, who runs for office so she can live off political contributions. She’s been doing that for years.
