Christine O’Donnell is running for the Delaware State Senate and at first glance she appears to have quite a bit of support. For example, she’s endorsed by Sarah Palin and the Tea-Party is funding her candidacy, but then the strange stuff begins.
The New York Times is reporting that O’Donnell has had a “series of financial problems” including earning only $5,800 last year, while claiming for some time now to be a college graduate, when in actuality “it turns out she actually got her degree … last week.”
O’Donnell also claimed to have won two counties against Joe Biden in 2008, even though Delaware only has three counties and she lost to Biden 65% to 35% and if you do the math, you realize she probably didn’t earn her b.s. in Math last week.
It’s also been reported that she’s obsessed with bushes, telling her political team to “check all the bushes” around her house and public appearances for fear that her opponents are “hiding in the bushes when I’m at candidate forums.”
Other issues in her past? She owes $11,744 in back taxes and she defaulted on a mortgage.
But back to the sub-heading of this piece, if you masturbate…at all…you’ll want to avoid checking her name in this coming November’s elections. She told MTV during an interview that the Bible says “lusting in your heart” is the same as committing adultery and “you can’t masturbate without lust.”
I can see the campaign slogan now “forget healthcare, the only strokes I care about are the one’s you do when your home alone.”
All kidding aside, there really does need to be better checks and balances into candidates pasts before they run for important positions in office. Lie on a resume you probably get canned from your job, yet here she stays, running with the backing of a party that’s trying to prove to the mainstream that they aren’t made up of crazies, although I’m not sure how the Tea Party is planning to prove that point with O’Donnell running on their dime.
please ......do not argue on issues.....take em down with this crap. BTW you are a doody face!!!!!!!
Sounds like Obama would pick her to be the Secretary of the Treasury... oops, already taken by a tax dodger!
Well, now the spelling's right, but the subhead's totally incoherent: "Plus she doesn't want your vote if you liked masturbate". Well done.
Shit, I know we shouldn't expect the quality of writing from this site that we'd get from an actual newspaper, but "masterbate"? Investing in a dictionary isn't the least you could do, but it's pretty close.
Lol, yeah Steve, I changed the spelling but didn't even think about that. BTW, I find about 10 spelling mistakes a day on New York Times, CNN, CNBC, MSNBC...give me a break ;) But in all seriousness, thanks for the spot, I'd rather fix things when they happen. As a new Media Idealist though, I care more about the fun facts of stories over a few spelling mistakes.
Yeah, it's called a spelling mistake, I find them all the time on the New York Times website too, Fox News, CNBC and pretty much every other website, chill out, you're going to give yourself an aneurysm ;) BTW, "Newspaper" is a dirty word....dirty dirty word.
