Christine O'Donnell endorses Mittens, pouring salt on his festering flip-flop wound

By Pablo Fanque, National Affairs Editor

Christine O'Donnell endorsed Ex-Governor Mitt Romney, last week. It's not what Romney's campaign had in mind, even though they probably recruited her for the job.   In fact, it blew up into a minor tempest in the political press.

"That’s one of the things that I like about him — because he’s been consistent since he changed his mind,” O’Donnell said.

She went on to say that Romney is “humble enough” to admit he doesn’t always have the right answers and is open to making the “necessary changes” to his own view points sometimes, but maintained that he never betrays his core convictions.

The Christine O'Donnell Red Herring::::::::Are The Republicans Playing Rope-A-Dope With Us?::::::::Would That Christine O'D Was The Judas Goat For The Grand Old Party

By Pablo Fanque
All This Is That National Affairs Editor

I have come, increasingly to believe that Christine O'Donnell is just a red herring [1] created by the GOP.  She has virtually zero chance of winning.  Even if the Feds swooped in and found Chris Coons's hard drive filled with child pornography, with him co-starring in every clip,  he would still likely shellac Christine O'D.   The last Rasmussen poll had Coons ahead of O'D by around 11%.  I'm pretty sure this week's debate will net out to her dropping another two or three points at the least.

So why is Christine the Red Herring?  The GOP were stunned by her primary win, and once that wore off, they looked around and realized they were utterly and completely effed!  They had other candidates in striking distance, without all the masturbation and witchcraft baggage.  And the power poles in the GOP didn't have what it takes to slap a muzzle on her; for all they knew she would go bat-shit crazy and start naming names.  So, they did what most of us do when caught between a rock and a hard place: nothing!   They sat on their purses and left her twisting in the wind.  But then it dawned on them that whatever crazy-talk she spoke or released could only draw heat away from some of the other Teabaggers that were saying equally or even more crazy things, but with far less media spotlight than the Delaware race.

The number of Democrats in danger is possibly up to even double the 39 seats Republicans need to consolidate their nefarious control of the House.   It is a perfect storm for the Republicans:  money, momentum and the mood of the country — which, alas, is sour on incumbents, most of who happen to be Dems.

The Democrats, and especially the independents and "uncommitted" need to focus on people in races where the Dems can actually win.  The Republicans are playing a classic game of rope-a-dope[2] with the Democratic Party. We need to get off the ropes and back into the center of the ring


[1] Red herring is one of my favorite English idioms.  The Wikipedia gives a pretty decent definition:  "the pungent red herring would be dragged along a trail until a puppy learned to follow the scent.   Later, when the dog was being trained to follow the faint odour of a fox or a badger, the trainer would drag a red herring (whose strong scent confuses the animal) perpendicular to the animal's trail to confuse the dog.  The dog would eventually learn to follow the original scent rather than the stronger scent. An alternate etymology points to escaping convicts who would use the pungent fish to throw off hounds in pursuit."  In fact, we're following the red herring, when we need to be tracking the other, far more perilous contenders...

[2] Rope-a-dope is, according to the wikipedia, "by a boxer assuming a protected stance, in Ali's classic pose, lying against the ropes, and allowing his opponent to hit him, toward the end that the opponent will tire and make mistakes which the boxer can exploit in a counter-attack.

"In competitive situations other than boxing, rope-a-dope is used to describe strategies in which one party purposely puts itself in what appears to be a losing position, attempting thereby to become the eventual victor."

[3] In stockyards, a Judas goat will lead sheep to slaughter, while its own life is spared. Judas goats are also used to lead other animals to specific pens and on to trucks.

Delaware Masturbation Witch Christine O'Donnell steps in deep doo-doo on the Constitution

By Pablo Fanque
National Affairs Editor

Everyone's buzzing about Christine (Delaware Masturbation Witch) O'D's pretty spectacular gaffe in her debate last night with Chris Coons (CO'D: "Where in the Constitution is the separation of church and state?").   But the sound bites and video clips miss her earlier jab at Coons, where she chides Coons on his ignorance of the constitution:  "Perhaps they didn't teach you constitutional law at Yale Divinity School."

To see the audience reaction to her stunning blunder, jump to 2:50 in the YouTube video, below:

Christine (better dead than red) O'Donnell warns of Chinese plot to take over America

By Pablo Fanque
National Affairs Editor

[thanks to tipster Jeff Clinton for this story]

Ben Evans reported for the Associated Press yesterday that Christine O'Donnell of Delaware, in a 2006 debate, claimed that China was plotting to take over America.  She drew this conclusion from classified information, the source of which she wouldn't disclose.  She later alluded that this "classified" information came from nonprofit groups that sent sent missionaries to China.  Neither O'Donnell, nor the nonprofit religious group, of course, hold any U.S. government security clearances.  Her bizarre claim was made in a 2006 Republican Senate primary debate.  O'Donnell subsequently lost that primary. 

Specifically, Christine O'D said China had a "carefully thought out and strategic plan to take over America."   She even accused one of her opponents of appeasement for saying that China and the U.S. should find a way to be allies.  "We have to look at our history and realize that if they pretend to be our friend it's because they've got something up their sleeve."

One of her, saner and more thoughtful opponents--Jan Ting-- said "I think our China policy has to be handled very carefully," Ting said. "We have the capability of making an enemy or a friend out of China."  

On the basis of these third-hand reports from some half-baked Jehovah's Witnesses and evangelical missionaries, O'Donnell is perfectly happy to place China in the enemies column.

Christine O'Donnell's supporters are definitely conflicted about "touching themselves"

Like most web/blog comments sections, Candidate O'Donnell's website is not immune from comment skank.  It looks like they need to get out the disinfectant ASAP!

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

By Pablo Fanque
National Affairs Editor

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.
