Christine O'Donnell

So I heard a bit about Christine O'Donnell, tea-party/Rep. candidate for Delaware senate seat. She unseated a heavy favority in the primaries.

she's on Fox News now debating against the other candidate Coons.

It's obvious she's either:
1. grossly under-prepared or
2. not very bright

She's only a inch deep and unfortunately only an inch wide too.

If I were her, I would hire a new campaign manager, she needs to be prepped better at a minimum, she's making a fool out of herself.

If you're not very smart, surround yourself with smart people

Hey, at least she ain't a witch!

However, her winning the primary tells you that way too many people are just plain 'ole pissed off and willing to try anything at this point. That's down right scary.

Hardly an accurate comparison. Obama was/is a mainstream Democrat who collected the independent vote. Nothing strange about that.

There's no doubt in my mind that she's not the brightest crayon in the box but, she'll vote correctly. Compared to her Mike Castle, her republican rival, I'd choose her over & over again. Mike's pockets are lined by George Soros.

Don't even get me started about Chris Coons.
(Self claimed Marxist and black liberation theology)

When Castle couldn't stand on his record, he went for character assassination instead. Politics as usual.

Republican Senate Candidate Christine O'Donnell today challenged her Democratic opponent Chris Coons on his statement that the Constitution disallowed the integration of religion into the federal government, asking, "Where in the Constitution is the separation of church and state?"

The exchange, which prompted laughs from the studio audience, came during a debate this morning at Delaware's Widener School of Law, which was aired by WDEL radio.

In a discussion over the whether or not public schools should be allowed to integrate religion-based ideas into science curricula, O'Donnell argued that local school districts should have the choice to teach intelligent design if they choose.

When asked point blank by Coons if she believed in evolution, however, O'Donnell reiterated that her personal beliefs were not germane. "What I think about the theory of evolution is irrelevant," she emphasized, adding later that the school of thought was "not a fact but a theory."

Coons said that creationism, which he considers "a religious doctrine," should not be taught in public schools due to the Constitution's First Amendment. He argued that it explicitly enumerates the separation of church and state.

"The First Amendment does?" O'Donnell asked. "Let me just clarify: You're telling me that the separation of church and state is found in the First Amendment?"

"Government shall make no establishment of religion," Coons responded, reciting from memory the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. (Coons was off slightly: The first amendment actually reads "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion.")

"That's in the First Amendment...?" O'Donnell responded.

Also during the debate, O'Donnell stumbled when asked whether or not she would repeal the 14th, 16th, or 17th Amendments if elected.

"The 17th Amendment I would not repeal," she said, before asking the questioner to define the 14th and 16th amendments, adding: "I'm sorry, I didn't bring my Constitution with me."

The 16th Amendment allows Congress to raise taxes without apportioning them among the states or tying the taxation to Census results. The 14th Amendment grants citizenship to everyone born in the United States. The 17th Amendment established direct election by popular vote of two U.S. Senators to each state .

Earlier in the debate, O'Donnell accused Coons of constitutional ignorance, saying that "perhaps they didn't teach you Constitutional law at Yale Divinity School."

She's an embarrassment and a lightweight and not worthy. The only thing she has going for her is that she is not a democrat. She was a mistake and democrats will hold that seat because she's the weakest of candidates.

She's strange.

Republicans may not have liked Mike Castle, but if you look at the bigger picture he would've given the GOP a much greater chance of taking over the Senate.
