Can The Anti-Masturbation Tea Party Candidate Christine O' Donnell Win In November? Can Any Tea Party Candidate?

The GOP is spooked by the Tea Party candidates putting their expected Senate pick-up seats at risk. Christine O'Donnell, a perennial candidate, know often as the "anti-masturbation lady" has now snagged the Republican Senate nomination in Delaware.  Virtually everyone, Dem and GOP, admits that she will be trounced in the general election.  The party regular at least had a shot.  The Republicans are so Eff'd!  It will be fascinating to watch over the next couple of months, as the Republicans auto-cannibalize themselves.  They're acting like the Demorats usually do!

Ex Governor Palin, won big on Tuesday.  Her endorsement clearly gave several Tea Party members a boost in their campaigns.  As Christine O'Donnell said "Thank you for your endorsement.  Because she got behind us war-weary folks, and gave us a boost of encouragement when we needed it." No one has yet determined whether or not Sarah Palin endorses O'Donnell's anti-masturbation stance.

Palin also backed Wisconsin's Sean Duffy -- an ex-district attorney (who was in the cast of MTV's "The Real World.").   He won big in the Republican primary Tuesday for a U.S. House seat.  In New York, Michael Grimm beat his opponent in the Republican primary for a House seat representing Staten Island.  Amazingly enough, Palin's nod has catapulted several obscure candidates into the limelight--Joe Miller in Alaska, Rand Paul in Kentucky, and Nikki Haley in South Carolina.

Alas for the Grand Ole Party, some of these wins, particularly the one in in Delaware, are being called a "GOP nightmare."

"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."

Christine O'Donnell has been a Republican candidate for Senate before — in 2008, she ran and lost to Smilin' Joe Biden, who stayed in the race, just in case he lost the vice presidency.

O'Donnell is probably known best for her advocacy of sexual abstinence — including the physically safe, but apparently soul-destroying act of masturbation: 

"The reason that you don't tell [people] that masturbation is the answer to AIDS and all these other problems that come with sex outside of marriage is because again it is not addressing the issue. ... You're just gonna create somebody who is, I was gonna say, toying with his sexuality. Pardon the pun." - Christine O'Donnell

The Republicans loved the Tea Party when they were voting en masse for the GOP.  Now?  Even Dick Armey's FreedomWorks, who are in bed with the tea partiers, won't endorse her. Lean back and enjoy the show--there is nothing more satisfying than seeing Republicans turn on themselves like a rabid pack of famished cannibals as they watch their Anti-Onanist candidate (and dreams of controlling The Senate) flame out.
