Poor Delaware. It's a beautiful state that nobody seems to remember - Perhaps because nobody has ever been there. But that will all change if Christine O'Donnell becomes senator. Because she'll make sure that you remember her. The state's reputation will hang on to her or rather, be dragged by her kicking and screaming. For what Michele Bachmann has done to a district in Minnesota, O'Donnell is determined to do to Delaware.
Some people call O'Donnell avaricious. Some people call O'Donnell a liar. Some people call O'Donnell an unmarried, silly prude. Some people call O'Donnell a complete fraud.
Karl Rove thinks she has a "character problem."
But Tony Perkins loves her:
"We are pleased to announce that Christine O'Donnell will join us to speak at the Values Voter Summit. We applaud her for valiantly defending faith, family and freedom throughout this campaign.
Typically, Tea Partiers and Republicans are not supporting O'Donnell for what she's for as much as for what she's against: condoms, gay rights, masturbation, pornography, big government, feminists, teaching evolution, and anyone who doesn't worship J.R.R. Tolkien. You can wear yourself out googling, and reading wikipedia, but you will not read about O'Donnell being for very much, unless it's a totally sterilized, "Leave It To Beaver" society.
The scary part of O'Donnell's victory over Castle is that it re-affirms the idea that Republicans and Tea Baggers never properly vet their candidates. For example, did they know that she makes the Puritans look positively hedonistic? Did they know that her "ministry" - Saviors Alliance for Lifting the Truth - sponsored an abysmal failure of an ex-gay ministry and was a spokesperson for NARTH? And were they aware that as spokeperson for Concerned Women of America, she staunchly supported Jesse Helms' anti-AIDS-funding campaign?
In O'Donnell's world, righteousness trumps everything. She's against abortion, even in the case of rape or incest. She's against condoms because she think they promote a destructive lifestyle and actually help the spread of AIDS. She's against lying in any form and had this exchange with Eddy Izzard on Politically Incorrect:
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!
